Egyptian Artists Stage a Set-In against Sharon Massacres
More than 50 Egyptian artists wearing black clothes gathered at the gateway of the headquarters of the studio al Ahram and announced a sit-in inside it in protest against Sharon’s massacres against the Palestinian people.
The artists raised signs condemning the American indifference and broke coca kola bottles as a way to express their economic boycott of the American products. They called for using the economic weapon and boycotting the American and British products. The cast of the series Noor al Qamar (moonlight) based on Naguib Mahfouz’s story, scripted by Basyouni Mahfouz and directed by Sami Mohammed decided to participate in the sit-in like other artists.
“The series cast decided to participate in the sit-in in front of the studio along with the cast of the series Amirah Min Abdeen (Princess From Abdeen) where all the members are present,” Nihal Anbar told the UAE daily al Bayan.
She added, “there is no taste for anything. Yesterday we shot very few scenes because everybody is depressed due to the Israeli crimes against the Palestinian people.”
The Egyptian artist thinks that most of the Arabs have been eluded by the so-called American democracy and human rights and lived under the banner “America, Country of Freedom”. In fact these were all false banners as the US proved to be the Arabs no. 1 enemy.
Anbar said, “at every scene aired by the Arab satellite channels, I used to cry because there is no medicines or milk for the Palestinian children. The Palestinian young men are being killed as martyrs by the Israeli sniper and yet the US does not make any move.”
“Why has not Israel implemented the UN Security Council resolutions and why the international forces did not do anything? Why did America mobilize its troops when Iraq invaded Kuwait,” inquired Anbar adding, “it is our mistake as Arabs because we are living a big lie called the United States of America -- Albawaba.com
