Over the weekend, 3 Israelis won bronze medals at the Abu Dhabi Judo Grand Slam. This was the first time they were allowed to compete under their own flag in Abu Dhabi; the International Judo Federation had temporarily suspended the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam after it refused to  acknowledge the nationality of the Israeli athletes last year.

On Friday night, the athletes welcomed the Shabbat along with Sports Minister Miri Regev who was the first Israeli minister to officially visit Abu Dhabi.

This was picked up by Palestinian Arab media. Al Resalah was disgusted by the scene, saying that the Jews had brought alcohol into the Muslim country for "so-called 'Holy Saturday'":

In all probability, the kiddush was made over grape juice, not wine. (Muslims are divided as to whether grape juice that is older than three days old is allowed under sharia law, but if it isn't fermented, it should be allowed at least theoretically.)

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 18 years and 38,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
