Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa al Khalifa has denounced the Arab boycott of ‘Israel’ and said his subjects are free to visit the Zionist occupation entity, according to the JPost newspaper.
The statement by the head of the Persian Gulf country, which does not have diplomatic relations with ‘Israel’, was revealed at a multi-national event last week in Los Angeles, hosted by the city’s Simon Wiesenthal Center, JPost added.
“At the event, Rabbis Marvin Hier and Abraham Cooper, who head the Wiesenthal Center, revealed the king’s pronouncements made to them during their visit to Manama, Bahrain’s capital city, in early 2017.”
When Hier and Cooper met with King Hamad, they also discussed the ruler’s plan to establish a Museum of Religious Tolerance in the capital city by the end of this year, JPost added.
