Culture and Sports Minister Miri Regev responded on Sunday to the attacks by Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah to the recent visits of Israeli ministers to Arab countries.

"To the terrorist Nasrallah: I heard the things you said yesterday about the prime minister and myself and the hospitality we received in the Gulf states. I saw how painful it is for you that there is someone in the Arab world who embraces us and desires us," Regev wrote.

"We will continue to visit the Arab countries and aspire to peace as the Jewish people have always aspired to," Regev promised. "The prime minister deserves a lot of credit for his work in this field, and I will continue to do everything possible to bridge the gaps through sports that is a bridge to peace."

"In two months we will be hosting the Grand Prix in judo and I intend to invite all the judaians from Arab countries to this competition," added Regev.

"Nasrallah, we will continue to extend a hand to peace and you will continue to threaten the State of Israel and its citizens and engage in terror," the minister said.

On Saturday, the leader of the Hezbollah terrorist organization called Arab countries willing to host Israeli leaders 'hypocritical.'

“We condemn any form of normalization with the Zionist entity,” Nasrallah said. “I say to the Palestinian people, do not lose hope over the Arab states’ normalization with Israel; what before went on behind the scenes now is taking place publicly. The current normalization has put an end to Arab hypocrisy, and removed the mask from the swindlers and hypocrites."
