Infinitum News has previously written about the delegation of Arab journalists and bloggers that Israel has invited to Jerusalem.
During the visit, the Saudi blogger was attacked and cursed while visiting the Temple Mount in Jerusalem’s Old Quarter, writes the Times of Israel.
The video clip shows a child spitting on Saud during his visit to the holy place. Others shout for him to leave the place.
In another clip, chairs and other objects are thrown at Saud as he walks through one of the alleys in the old town.
In the video clip, you can also hear a man shouting at Saud, “Go to a synagogue.” Others call him an “animal” and “Zionist waste.”
A Foreign Ministry spokesman condemned the harassment of Saud
“We strongly condemn the cruel and immoral behavior of some Palestinians near the Al-Aqsa Mosque to a Saudi media personality. He came to Jerusalem to be a bridge to peace and understanding between people, “wrote Nizar Amer on Twitter – writes Times of Israel.
Another State Department spokesman called it a “disgusting welcome.”
Saud is one of six Arab journalists and bloggers, including representatives from Jordan and Iraq, invited to Israel by the Israeli Foreign Ministry. Relations between Israel and certain Arab countries have improved recently.
Saud speaks Hebrew and is a supporter of Netanyahu. Saud also shows his support for Israel, for Netanyahu and the Likud party on his Twitter account.
The group of journalists and bloggers will visit the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem, the Knesset, some of the holy sites, and members of the academic world in Israel.
In addition, it is also planned that Saud will meet with Netanyahu.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has stated that the purpose of the visit is to: “Tell the journalists – some of whom come from countries that do not have diplomatic relations with Israel, what the Israeli position is on diplomatic and geopolitical issues.”
