Omer took the song “Al Ghorba” (Alienation) and sang it in Hebrew, with exactly the same music, as his own. He even went as far as recording a music video for it!
This isn’t the first time an Israeli artist has taken an Arabic song and made it their own.
According to Tayyar.org, Fares commented - in a sarcastic manner - on the incident saying: “They (Israelis) steal our lands and homelands and abuse us, then they insist on stealing our music and cultural in the rudest way possible.”
