The vice president of the so-called Southern Transitional Council, Hani Ben Brik, praised the UAE’s hospitality to Pope Francis.
Ben Brik wrote a tweet, praising the huge celebrations by Zayed’s sons in the UAE after the visit of Pope Francis, and claiming that it was a message to Arabs and Muslims.
He also described Islam and Muslims as terrorists and extremists.
” Sheikh Mohammed knew exactly what he was doing when he called Pope Francis to visit the Arabian Peninsula and to open the Year of Tolerance. The visit is a message to the Muslim world and others,” Ben Brik said.
He said about the visit “It has a clear goal of emphasizing a new era in the Arab world for a generation after the abuse of Islam by extremists,”.
An activist commented on his tweets: “It seems that Ben Brik is on his way to embrace Zionism ..! How if he had the strength, the power and that the Marxist and the Socialists had in the South at the past? Inevitably he will be much worse than them!
