ISRAELI JUDOKA SAGI MUKI WINS GOLD MEDAL IN ABU DHABI

This is the first time in which the Israeli national anthem Hatikvah was played in the United Arab Emirates.

 

Israeli Judoka Sagi Muki defeated Belgian Judoka Matthias Casse in the Judo Grand competition held in Abu Dhabi on Sunday evening, winning the gold medal.

This is the first time in which the Israeli national anthem Hatikvah was played in the United Arab Emirates.

Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein called Muki “a champion” and that “it is a great feeling to hear our national anthem…played for the first time in Abu Dhabi.”

“We salute you,” Edelstein said, “you brought a great honor to the state of Israel.”

AJC Assistant Executive Director Avi Mayer wrote on twitter that the win is “a glimmer of joy amidst today’s gloom.”
