Big Ramy calls for solidarity with Palestine.
Big Ramy is calling for the Arab and Muslim community to show solidarity with Palestinians. The conflict in the Middle East has been a truly harrowing one to say the least. The loss of life has been tragic. While Israelis have lost lives during the recent conflict, it pales in comparison to the amount of Palestinian lives taken. Men, women, and children have all perished during this conflict, the death toll rising all the time.
In the wake of so many Palestinian lives being lost the international community is speaking out. At this point it is clear that what is occurring simply isn’t right.
Now it appears that 2020 Olympia champion Mamdouh ‘Big Ramy’ Elssbiay has some words to offer on the situation.
A Call For Solidarity
Only the second Middle Eastern bodybuilder to earn the title of Mr. Olympia, Big Ramy is hoping to use his platform to address the situation at hand. A recent Instagram post by the Olympia champion expresses his feelings on the conflict in the Middle East.
Forgive me for my words only. The horror that our young children, our mothers and brothers are experiencing in Palestine is a terrible and humiliating thing to us as Arabs and Muslims. Our Lord is sure to help them, but the rest is on us that we are living, seeing and hearing, and our hearts are not excited for what happens only a few seconds if that happens. I am thinking about you and I am thinking about myself, the case is the case of a mother, not just Palestine. Oh God, grant us your victory that you promised 🙏

It’s clear that Big Ramy feels for those suffering in Palestine during this terrible conflict. So many lives are being needlessly snuffed out and destroyed. Children are being killed or traumatized by all this death and destruction. It must be put to a swift end.
Big Ramy is imploring others to join in solidarity with the Palestinians suffering these atrocities.
Big Ramy isn’t the only bodybuilder calling for solidarity. Kai Greene also was clear on his stance when it comes to Palestine.
