Emirati royal Hend bint Faisal Al-Qasimi justified the massacre of Jews on October 7, makes frequent antisemitic remarks

Sheikha Hend bint Faisal Al Qasimi (الشيخة هند بنت فيصل القاسمي) is a prominent member of the royal Al Qasimi family.

The posts on her official X account, which has more than 567K followers, now contain mostly pure, unadulterated, antisemitic propaganda. As an example, Hend Al Qasimi shared a list of prominent Jewish American officials in Biden’s administration and made the antisemitic dual loyalty accusation. The Nazis targeted Jews in prominent positions in the same way. In light of the fact that this statement comes from an Emerati royal family that rules two of the seven emirates of the United Arab Emirates: Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah, it is particularly concerning.

Furthermore, Hend Al Qasimi’s ethnic profiling of Jews resembles Nazi eugenics. According to her, Ashkenazi Jews are not real Jews, and Middle Eastern Jews do not “kill blindly”. In Israel, over 60% of the population is made up of Jews and their descendants who fled Arab lands or were expelled from them.

She frequently compares Israeli Zionists/Jews to Nazis. This perverse concept of portraying of Israelis and Jews as Nazis is extremely antisemitic according to IHRA definition of antisemitism, and is aimed at hurting Jews. Additionally, this comparison is ignorant and lazy.

Hend Al Qasimi also promotes falsified versions of historical events, and makes a cruel use of the Holocaust to target Jews, and deny Jewish connection to Israel and the right to self-determination in our ancestral homeland. Furthermore, Arab owners of the land the Jews moved onto were often handsomely compensated.

  • Second image – “A British policeman organizes the arrest of passengers from the Aliyah Bet ship Parita”. The British arrested the passengers and interned them at Atlit detention camp.

Additionally, she spreads a fabricated Albert Einstein quote and propaganda designed to stir up hatred against Jews.

Finally, Hend Al Qasimi justifies terrorism against innocent Jewish civilians, including the murder, rape and beheading of not only adults which would be bad enough, but of babies and children. In another post, she appears to defend Hamas and support terrorism. This utterly despicable behavior deserves total condemnation.

We urge the United States and Israel to lodge formal complaints to the government of the United Arab Emirates about Sheikha Hend bint Faisal Al Qasimi’s abhorrent conduct on social media.
