Twitter users outraged as Bahraini PM pays respects to Shimon Peres

Bahraini Foreign Minister Sheikh Khalid Al Khalifa has spurred controversy as he paid his respects to former Israeli President Shimon Peres on Twitter.

The tweet referred to Peres as a “man of still elusive peace in the Middle East”, a comment many found offensive. Commentators replied to Al Khalifa reminding him of the way in which Palestinians have suffered as a result of Peres’ policies.

Like many Arab states, Bahrain does not officially recognize Israel, though Israeli citizens are allowed to enter the Gulf state.

Bahrain and Israel do not have diplomatic relations but there was a brief warming in 1994 when the Israeli delegation entered Bahrain for the first time.

The Bahraini embassy has not provided MEMO with a comment.

One of the pioneers of the Israeli Internet, Zvi was already established as the voice of Israeli internet among international users as early as 1991, which resulted in the Israeli government asking him to lead the famous Jerusalem One project, the very first Israeli Internet network. Zvi Lando was the designer/builder of the first web sites for the Prime Minister's office, the Foreign Ministry, and worked for 13 years with the Jewish Agency, building dozens of projects, including, in 1996, Emet - the first Hebrew web site in history.
