Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas travelled to Jerusalem Friday to meet his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu.

Standing on the front lawn of Netanyahu’s Jerusalem residence, President Abbas called the Israeli prime minister to his balcony, and then recited a love poem entitled “Will You Bibi My Baby Tonight?” The Palestinian leader then stripped to a scanty nightie andwitness accounts here diverge—either performed a “sexy dance” or suffered a seizure.

Abbas’s move caused controversy on Palestinian social media, but was hailed by Israeli commentators as a show of personal bravery and leadership. “Not every Arab leader could go to Jerusalem and do what he did,” the Times of Israel‘s Avi Issacharoff said. “It takes real courage to be so craven.”
