Ali bin Al Hussein attacks normalization and Mohammed bin Zayed
It is noteworthy that in August of last year, a tweet by Prince Ali bin Al Hussein, son of King Hussein and brother of the Jordanian monarch, sparked widespread controversy on the communication sites, in which he participated in an article criticizing the Emirati-Israeli relations.
The picture attached to the article showed a picture of the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, with a shoe painted on it and the words “traitor” and “normalization are treason” written under it.
The article shared by the prince came under the title “The Israeli-Jordanian Agreement: A Major Breakthrough or a Betrayal?”
The tweet was later deleted after a large wave of criticism against the prince from Jordanian and Emirati tweeters.

The tweet sparked wide reactions on social media, at the time, and revived the controversy surrounding normalization.
A group of tweeters accused the prince of criticizing Israeli-Emirati relations, while Jordan preceded them with normalization.

While the opponents of normalization celebrated the tweet, describing what the prince shared as “the honorable position that represents every Arab.”
Prince Ali bin Al Hussein #Jordan He tweeted an article written by a distinguished academic who teaches at Oxford, and did not publish insults against anyone. It is possible for an academic who is not a distinguished scholar to respond to the article in the same way, not to insult the emir. The political defect is stabbing the Palestinians in the back and allying with the Zionists. The disadvantage is that you curse instead of responding academically pic.twitter.com/OifYAbLMyf

At the time, activists launched the hashtag #Prince_Ali_represents me to express their support for his positions, even if they “do not express the views of the Jordanian government.”
#Prince_Ali_represents me Rather, it represents all Arabs and those who have a conscience, we have become in a time because of the betrayal of the monstrosities of the earth and their dwarves, defending the loyal and honorable and those who adhere to the principles of the nation!
