Egyptian actor to face trial over photo with Israeli singer

Mohamed Ramadan,

An Egyptian actor is set to go on trial in December following outrage in Egypt when a photo he took with an Israeli singer was posted on social media.

Mohamed Ramadan, will face trial in December for a selfie with Israeli celebrities. Prosecutors accuse Ramadan of causing “offence to the Egyptian people.

According to a report by news central, lawyer Tareq Mahmoud filed a lawsuit against Ramadan, saying the photo offended Egyptians, but it was not clear what the precise charge against him was.

The image of Ramadan embracing Israeli singer Omer Adam during a trip to the United Arab Emirates went viral on social media platform Twitter after Emirati journalist Hamad Al Mazrouei tweeted a photo of the star, writes Times of Israel.

The caption read, “The most famous artist in Egypt with the most famous artist in Israel, Dubai brings us together”.

According to local media, the photograph gained further traction on Twitter after it was retweeted by the State of Israel’s Arabic Twitter account under the caption “Art brings us together”.

According to the British news publication the Guardian, Egypt became the first Arab country to make peace with Israel in 1979, and the two governments work closely together on security issues.

However, many Egyptians are still deeply opposed to what they call “popular normalisation” with Israel.

This year, Sudan became the fifth Arab country to recognise Israel, following Jordan, Egypt, United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.
