Union of Palestinian Writers condemns IMA's art exhibition for "serving the Zionist occupation’s narrative"
Headline: “The [Palestinian] Writers’ General Union”
“Yesterday [Dec. 19, 2021] the Palestinian Writers’ General Union condemned the position of the Institut du Monde Arabe (IMA) in Paris regarding the Palestinian cause, and its call to adopt the so-called ‘Abrahamness’ (apparently refers to IMA defending its exhibitions on Muslim, Christian, and Jewish life in the Middle East; “Abrahamness” apparently refers to the Abraham Accords, so named since Abraham is a central figure in all three religions; see note below -Ed.). [Palestinian Writers’] Union Secretary-General poet Murad Al-Sudani said in a statement by the union that this institute is advancing normalizationwith the hated occupation entity and is deceptively and cunningly implantingthe occupation’s aspirations into the consciousness of the Arab intellectuals and thinkers. This is in order to weaken the Palestinian right and truth and legitimize what the robber has plundered from the Palestinian people…
Al-Sudani demanded that the Arab writers and free writers in the world reject what the IMA is proposing and what it is advancing in the world, as it is a political body that is managed in a certain way in order to serve the Zionist occupation’s narrative.
Al-Sudani praised the call to boycott the IMA in Paris and pressure it to recant its dubious plans on everything concerning the Palestinian cause.”
Israel-UAE peace agreement (Abraham Accords) – an agreement normalizing diplomatic ties between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), which was announced on Aug. 13, 2020, under the mediation of US President Donald Trump. Pursuant to the agreement, the countries will discuss bilateral cooperation on a number of topics. In exchange for the agreement, Israel agreed to suspend its previously announced plans to apply Israel's civilian law to parts of Judea, Samaria and the Jordan Valley as per the Trump peace plan. The US announced that “Muslims throughout the world who wish to come in peace to pray at the Al Aqsa Mosque, will now be able to fly to Tel Aviv through Abu Dhabi to do so and will be welcomed.”
