Egyptian artist Mohamed Ramadan confirmed today, Sunday, that he “did not know the person who took the picture with him” after appearing in the photo he took with the Israeli singer Omir Adam in Dubai (BAC).
I’m not wondering about the country he can imagine unless he’s alone. He said a video with a young Palestinian and he is in the same place !! And on the face of the brother who greets the Palestinian people !! Some who have ignored this video confirm that the intention is not the cause of the Palestinians, but their real cause is the 1000th attempt to stop the success of my fame. #Thingspic.twitter.com/UxMniEwXcq

The head of the Egyptian Theater Professions Union, Ashraf Zaki, confirmed in a phone call with an Egyptian television program that he had communicated with Muhammad Ramadan, who denied knowledge of the Israeli artist, saying: “God I swear I don’t know that, I was in an Arab country and I took this picture “.
Zaki added, “Ramadan told me he didn’t know he was the Israeli person who took the picture, and I don’t think Muhammad will betray Ramadan’s mind. Muhammad is not stupid because he takes a picture with an Israeli.”
Zaki has stated that the Artists Syndicate will call Ramadan to investigate the incident.
It came after a flurry of social media, yesterday, Saturday, with a lot of angry comments and criticism over the photo posted on the “Israel speaks Arabic” account attached to the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The image reads, “Art always unites us.”

Criticism by social media pioneers and allegations of Ramadan’s normalization with Israel prompted the deletion of a photo posted by Emirati journalist Hamad Al Mazrouei on his Twitter account, compiled by Ramadan and Omair Adam, as Al Mazrouei said in his deleted tweet: unites us. “
