Meet the Only Jewish MP in the Muslim World

Yehuda “Yavda” Abramov, who is accompanying Azerbaijan’s Foreign Minister Elmar Mamadiarov on his visit to Israel, is apparently the only Jewish Member of Parliament in the entire Muslim world.

Abramov, who is also the chairman of the Israel-Azerbaijan Inter-Parliamentary Committee, told Arutz Sheva he does not see anything extraordinary about his status.

“I do not see anything special in the fact that a Jew serves as a member of parliament in a Muslim country,” he explained. “In our country, there is a complete equality of rights between citizens, and anyone can be elected. I am a member of the ruling party, which is headed by the president, whose father was one of the founders of the state.”
