Israeli blogger’s selfies from Prophet’s Mosque trigger anger, outrage

RIYADH: Images posted by an Israeli blogger inside the Mosque of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) in Medina sparked outrage in the Muslim world over religious insensitivity and what many said double standards of Saudi authorities.

Ben Tzion, a blogger and writer for the Times of Israel, shared on his Instagram account pictures of himself dressed in traditional Saudi clothing inside the Prophet’s mosque, as well as a video of a sermon likely taken during the same visit.
