Minister Regev visits Abu Dhabi's biggest mosque
While in the UAE with Israel's judo team, Culture and Sports Minister Miri Regev visited the Sheikh Zayed Mosque; 'I signed the mosque's guest book in Hebrew. I wanted to show the brotherhood that could be between Jews and Muslims, and offer a hand in peace,' she says.

Culture Minister Miri Regev visited the Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi on Sunday, hours before Israeli judoka Sagi Muki won a gold medal at the Grand Slam tournament in the United Arab Emirates.

 

 

The mosque, one of the biggest and most beautiful in the world, is named after UAE founder Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, who is also buried there.

 

It cost over half a billion dollars to build and has 82 domes of different sizes and four minarets, each 107 meters in height. It can hold over 41,000 people.

"It was very important to them that I would come to the mosque, and I respected the sanctity of the place," said Regev, who wore traditional clothes and removed her shoes when visiting the mosque.

 

"I signed the mosque's guest book in Hebrew. I wanted to show the brotherhood that could be between Jews and Muslims, and offer a hand in peace," she added.
