Princess Hend bint Faisal Al-Qasimi, a royal from the Al-Qasimi dynasty that rules Sharjah, the United Arab Emirates’ third-largest city, tweeted her antisemitic trope on Saturday. It is not the first such statement by the princess, who is a maverick in her country which signed peace accords with Israel in 2020 and has maintained cordial relations with Israel since, including marking Holocaust Memorial Day in Dubai last January.
The princess has a following of over 533,000 people on Twitter. Her tweets often go viral, attracting thousands of retweets and likes.
“6,636,235 Jews were killed in WW2, killed in Europe,” she tweeted Saturday. “At least 12.5M Muslims died in wars in past 25 years. You never hear a Muslim writing books, movies, starts a law that if you don’t sympathize with our plight you are less of a human. We forgive & move on.”
It is unclear what Al-Qasimi’s figures on Holocaust victims or Muslim victims are based on. However she continued her scathing criticism of Israel Sunday, at the same time making the antisemitic claim that Jews control global affairs.
“The media that is controlled by you know who, wants you to NOT EVEN FEEL AN OUNCE OF SYMPATHY FOR THE DEAD BABIES, by claiming their terrorist Daddies DELIBERATELY USED them as HUMAN SHIELDS. No one believes you. Grow up. Stop the war. #Gaza,” she wrote.
Accompanied by occupation forces, groups of Israeli settlers break into the courtyards of Al-Aqsa mosque on holy days of fasting & prayer after killing & injuring 100 Palestinians.
This is disgusting.
I’m ashamed at how horrible they’re acting.
Your actions hurt 2 billion people!

Princess Hend describes Jewish ascension to Temple Mount as “breaking into the courtyards of Al-Aqsa”
In the past Al-Qasimi has compared the Palestinians suffering to the Holocaust, claiming that they were suffering “the same fate.”
“We’ve all cried at what the Nazis have done to the Jews in Germany. Yet, it’s funny how the very same Jewish Zionists don’t cry at the EXACT SAME thing that they are doing to the Palestinians. Take their homes if they don’t leave, terrorize them & bomb it. The dead don’t speak.”
Besides her online presence, Al-Qasimi is a businesswoman and a journalist and serves as the editor-in-chief of a lifestyle magazine.
