Shaaban Abdel Rehim to Show Michael Jackson that Mideast Politics Ain’t Kiddin’ Around
Egyptian singer Shaaban Abdel Rahim is headed for the US, where he will take on Michael Jackson for the latter’s recent pro-Israel song.
Abdel Rehim has signed a contract to take part in three concerts in the US in the middle of next month, upon the request of the Arab community and some Americans.
The move has comes after CNN aired a program about him following his smash hit, I Hate Israel.
The singer told the London-based daily Al Sharq Al Awsat that he viewed his trip to the US as a very important patriotic task, through which he would respond to Michael Jackson’s song in which the latter advocates for Israel.
Abdel Rehim will also sing a new song about the US bias in favor of Israel. He confirmed that the song would be translated simultaneously into English for the American audience, so that they could recognize the wrongheaded stance of their country.
The popular singer said the trip was scheduled for this month, but it had been postponed because of his recent visit to Kuwait and his commitments to shooting the last scenes of the movie Muwaten Wa Mukhber Wa Harami (Citizen, Detective and Thief).
Acting alongside Abdel Rehim are Khaled Abul Naja and Hind Sabri, under the direction of Daoud Abdel Sayyed. Abddel Rehim performs the role of a popular singer in the film - Albawaba.com
