Shabaan Abdul Rahim blames Ariel Sharon for the September 11th attack on US
The song “I hate Israel” by Egyptian folk singer Shabaan Abdul Rahim has been the main cause of his success and popularity throughout the Arab world and abroad. The singer has constantly released songs that deal with political issues simply expressing his point of view with regards to different incidents that occur in the world.
According to the UAE based daily, Al Raya, Shabaan has once again released a new political song in which he is directing his speech to all Arab leaders telling them to open their eyes and look around them to see the destruction the United States of America and Israel are doing. The new song “Ya Am Ya Arabi” is witnessing enormous success in the Palestinian occupied territories. Shabaan goes on to say that Sharon is behind the September 11th attacks on the US and Israel has intentionally placed the blame on Arabs in order to create chaos and to make the world think they are savages.
Shabaan also stresses that the American government is not doing anything to improve the conditions in the region, but on the contrary it is destroying more than building. He adds that the US and Israel work together to make themselves stronger than any other country in order to bully smaller countries into doing as they please.
Abdul Rahim has revealed that he has turned down an offer to sing in the United States of America fearing assassination by the Jewish movement Mossad with the help of the CIA. The singer had received an invitation to sing his popular song “I Hate Isreal” in the America for 60 thousand US dollars but the fear for his life made him overlook the thought of going.
Shabaan also revealed that due to his song “I Hate Israel” a contract between him and the Egypt chain of the international food restaurant McDonalds to hold an advertisement campaign for their new Falafel (vegetarian burger) sandwich. The contract was cancelled after a Jewish official in the US submitted a complaint against him.
Recently, Shabaan has realized that his success in the music world depends mainly on him creating political songs, especially those that criticize the United States of America and Israel. His songs have found popularity mostly due to there simple language that is easily understood by everyone, and because they express the hatred common people have towards the US and Israel.
Shabaan’s latest creation is a song about the “Road Map”, and the words in it are the same that were said by Bush himself when he released it. The song goes on to describe how the US and Israel are spit images of one another and they work for each other’s benefit.
Shabaan daringly states in the song that the US is behind the September 11th attacks and that they purposely brought it down to create a scenario about how Arabs and Muslims are terrorists. The singer goes to say that the US just wants any reason to put the blame on a Muslim country in order to give them an excuse to act in any way they want. The song is part of the new album released by Shabaan and is expected to find enormous success in the Arab world.
Shabaan was able through his simplicity in style and manner to reach the hearts of many people throughout the Arab world. Shabaan has risen from a poor ironer to well-known singer with his songs reiterated throughout the streets and people anxiously waiting for the opportunity to see him perform. – Albawaba.com
