Houthi Islamic scholar Sheikh Muhsin Al-Hamzi claimed in a Friday sermon in Sa'dah, Yemen that aired on December 6, 2020 on Al-Eman TV (Houthis-Yemen) that the UAE has recently legalized homosexuality, even in public places. He also said that as part of its normalization with Israel, the UAE is sending prostitutes to Israel, and Israel is sending prostitutes to the UAE. Sheikh Al-Hamzi said: "This is an alliance with the Jews... One scandal after another."
Muhsin Al-Hamzi: "Our enemies – the Emirati regime and the Saudi regime – are in total collapse. The latest scandal of the Emirati regime, maybe you have heard about it... The latest scandal of the Emirati regime relates to its Jewish-like decision, or worse, to permit homosexuality, even in public places. They permit it! Now it is easy – grab yourself a boy in the street, do whatever you want with him, and you will face no legal consequences. The latest scandal of the Emirati regime is to permit homosexuality even in public spaces.
"Another scandal from a few days ago, is [an agreement] between the UAE and the Zionist entity on the exchange of prostitutes. I apologize for using this language in this place, but I'm doing it to make a point. Emirati whores – I don't know their origin – were sent to Israel, and Jewish whores were sent to the UAE. A whore exchange [program]. Do you see how an alliance with the Jews works? This is an alliance with the Jews. Some call it 'normalization,' but it is an alliance."
