In a January 29, 2020 show on Elsharq TV (Turkey-based Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood), Egyptian TV host Hesham Abdalla, who is also an actor, condemned the leaders and ambassadors of the Gulf countries for their support of U.S. President Donald Trump's Deal of the Century. Referring to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as "Stink-yahu," Abdalla stood up and put his shoe on his desk, angrily saying that the shoe of every free Arab is "on the heads" of the leaders of the UAE, Oman, Bahrain, and Saudi Arabia. He added: "Palestine is Arab and Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine... Shame and disgrace is your lot, you disgraceful rulers! A pigsty is more pure than the most pure among you!" He ended his monologue by saying: "I spit on you!"

 

Hesham Abdalla: "I heard Stink-yahu and Trump saluting the ambassador of Mohammed bin Zayed's UAE, as well as the ambassadors of Oman and of Bahrain, for attending the shameful and disgraceful [Deal of the Century ceremony]. From here, I am saying to them: The shoe of every free Arab is on your head, Bin Zayed! It's on your head, Oman! It's on your head, Bahrain! It's on your head, Saudi Arabia! Palestine is Arab and Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine! Down with the Deal of the Century! Long live free Palestine! We have our Arab identity! We have our holy places! We have our revolution! Shame and disgrace is your lot, you disgraceful rulers! A pigsty is more pure than the most pure among you! I spit on you! Tfu!!!"
