Emirates pilot suspended for refusing to fly to Israel

Emirates airline has suspended a Tunisian pilot for refusing to fly to Israel

Emirates airline has suspended a Tunisian pilot for refusing to fly to Israel. Moneem Saheb Tabaa confirmed the suspension on his Facebook page, which he has since closed.

“God is [the] only [one] who takes care of me…” said Tabaa. “I do not regret it.” The pilot is suspended pending a formal hearing.

As news of his suspension spread across social media, many activists denounced Dubai-based Emirates and praised Tabaa for his defiant stance in opposing last year’s normalisation deals between Israel and several Arab states. The UAE was the first of the recent states to establish diplomatic ties with Israel, along with Bahrain, Sudan and, more recently, Morocco.

Tunisia has maintained consistently that it has no intention of following suit and normalising with the occupation state. In a statement late last year, the Tunisian foreign ministry said, “As Tunisia respects the sovereign positions of other countries, it affirms that its stance is principled, and changes in the international scene will never affect it.”

Upon being elected in 2019, Tunisia’s President Kais Saiedsaid that Palestine is engraved in the hearts of Tunisians and that, “Palestine is not a lot of land which is registered as real estate.”

Following Morocco’s normalisation with Israel, the Speaker of the Tunisian Parliament, and head of Ennahda Movement, Rached Ghannouchi, said, “We were shocked by this step, which contradicted the Arab consensus as expressed by the Arab Peace Initiative. We support the rights of the Palestinian people in accordance with the principle of Arab and Muslim brotherhood as well as international law.”

Both Tunisia and Algeria have prevented Israeli aircraft from using their airspace for flights to and from Morocco, forcing them to take an indirect route via Europe. Israeli airlines began operating direct flights between Tel Aviv and the UAE in August. Etihad Airways was the first UAE airline to fly to Israel, carrying medicine bound for Palestine. According to Israeli news website Globes, Emirates is expected to launch its flights from Dubai to Tel Aviv next month.

Juruterbang Emirates ditangguhkan kerana enggan terbang ke Israel

Syarikat penerbangan Emirates telah menggantung juruterbang Tunisia kerana enggan terbang ke Israel

Syarikat penerbangan Emirates telah menggantung juruterbang Tunisia kerana enggan terbang ke Israel. Moneem Saheb Tabaa mengesahkan penangguhan itu di laman Facebooknya, yang sejak itu ditutup.

“Tuhan hanya satu-satunya yang menjaga saya …” kata Tabaa. “Saya tidak menyesal.” Juruterbang digantung sementara menunggu perbicaraan rasmi.

Ketika berita penangguhannya tersebar di media sosial, banyak aktivis mengecam Emirates yang berpusat di Dubai dan memuji Tabaa atas sikapnya yang menentang dalam menentang perjanjian normalisasi tahun lalu antara Israel dan beberapa negara Arab. UAE adalah yang pertama dari negara-negara baru-baru ini yang menjalin hubungan diplomatik dengan Israel, bersama dengan Bahrain, Sudan dan, baru-baru ini, Maghribi.

Tunisia secara konsisten menyatakan bahawa ia tidak berniat mengikuti dan menormalkannya dengan negara pendudukan. Dalam satu pernyataan akhir tahun lalu, kementerian luar Tunisia mengatakan, “Ketika Tunisia menghormati kedudukan kedaulatan negara-negara lain, ia menegaskan bahawa pendiriannya berprinsip, dan perubahan dalam kancah antarabangsa tidak akan pernah mempengaruhinya.”

Setelah terpilih pada tahun 2019, Presiden Tunisia Kais Saied mengatakan bahawa Palestin terukir di hati rakyat Tunisia dan bahawa, “Palestin tidak banyak tanah yang didaftarkan sebagai harta tanah.”

Berikutan normalisasi Maghribi dengan Israel, Speaker Parlimen Tunisia, dan ketua Gerakan Ennahda, Rached Ghannouchi, berkata, “Kami terkejut dengan langkah ini, yang bertentangan dengan konsensus Arab seperti yang dinyatakan oleh Inisiatif Perdamaian Arab. Kami menyokong hak rakyat Palestin sesuai dengan prinsip persaudaraan Arab dan Muslim serta undang-undang antarabangsa. ”

Kedua-dua Tunisia dan Algeria telah menghalang pesawat Israel menggunakan ruang udara mereka untuk penerbangan ke dan dari Maghribi, memaksa mereka mengambil jalan tidak langsung melalui Eropah. Syarikat penerbangan Israel mula mengendalikan penerbangan langsung antara Tel Aviv dan UAE pada bulan Ogos. Etihad Airways adalah syarikat penerbangan UAE pertama yang terbang ke Israel, membawa ubat yang menuju ke Palestin. Menurut laman web berita Israel, Globes, Emirates dijangka melancarkan penerbangannya dari Dubai ke Tel Aviv bulan depan.
