Abou Ismail claims Arab countries financing Renaissance Dam

Hazem Salah Abou Ismail, founder of the Rayah Party, claimed that Arab countries are financing the Ethiopian Renaissance Dam.
On his TV show on Amgad satellite channel, Abou Ismail added that "Arab countries like Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE have paid Ethiopia to reclaim large expanses of land."
The Ethiopian Renaissance Dam poses a threat to Egypt, he said, “because it will reduce our water supply and we will not have enough to drink. Egypt will be barren."
He pointed out that revolutionary youths should be aware of the complicated web of interests at play.
Commenting on the recent storming of al-Aqsa Mosque by Israeli soldiers and settlers, Abou Ismail said, "I want to ask the US what it would do if Islamic nations besieged and assaulted their foreign embassies."
"If al-Aqsa Mosque were attacked, the people could swarm to Israeli and American embassies. How would they react?”
"Repeated attacks on al-Aqsa Mosque revive the nation," he added.
