TEHRAN (FNA)- Social media activists have started speculations about the suspicious death of Habib Yousuf Abdallah al-Sayegh, the editor-in-chief of al-Khaleej newspaper, chairman of the Emirates Writers Union and Secretary General of the Arab Writers Union, saying he has been killed for criticizing the UAE and Saudi Arabia for normalizing ties with Israel.
In a recent editorial, al-Sayegh strongly denounced the suggestion of open relations with the “Zionist state”. He also blasted justification of Israel’s actions against Palestinians and demanded the boycott of Israel’s advocates.
He said that “voices rise here and there, rushing to Israel, aiming to visit and support it, expressing their sincerest signs of love and loyalty”.
“Although we recognize that these voices are few and with limited impact, they are, as is apparent, increasing fast and perhaps the reason is us turning a blind eye,” al-Sayegh added.
He also stressed how these voices should not be ignored or overlooked. “Some have even taken shameful positions which no sane person would take,” he continued.
Saeed bin Nasser al-Qamedi, a Saudi activist, wrote on his twitter page that al-Sayegh was taken for interrogation by the UAE security appratus and “then his corpse came out”.
Also, Saleh al-Aji, another social media activist, wrote that “Habib al-Sayegh was killed for his opposition to normalization of relations with Israel”.

DEATH OF A NOT-SO-SILENT LAMB
A soft target that leaves the UAE – like Israel and its penchant for soft targets, isolated between a rock and a hard place teeming with sand fleas. How does Abu Dhabi now hope to regain the high moral ground from a position beneath contempt due to this vile execution? Did the Khashoggi mutilation teach them anything about how to deal with so-called dissidenting journalists other than taking the satanic and murderous route? Did the execution fall within the remit of Sharia Law operating in the UAE? What a good start to a relationship with the Arab-loving Likudniks – to kill one of their own citizens for daring to express an opinion. Habib Yousuf Abdallah al-Sayegh is indeed a martyr to the truth – whatever the sick security apparatus operating in Abu Dhabi has to say. Are all UAE citizens at risk because a few traitors – wolves in sheeps’ clothing, within the hierarchy chose to embrace Tel Aviv? Time to chose your friends more wisely.
