BEIRUT, Lebanon - Speaking to Rudaw in the Lebanese capital, Arab singers express their support for the Kurds and hope that 2013 is the year they achieve their rights and nationalist aspirations.
“I have full respect and love for the continuous struggle of the Kurdish people (and hope) for the fulfillment of their legitimate rights,” says Tunisian singer Saber el Rubai, who appeared in the popular MBC show The Voice.
Shatha Hassoun, the Iraqi-Moroccan singer who won LBC television’s Star Academy contest in 2007 and became the number one singer, has performed concerts in the Iraqi Kurdish capital of Erbil in the past few years and calls the Kurds “my people.”
“I wholeheartedly hope to meet the Kurdish people again,” she hopes. “I will never forget that one of my first concerts was in Kurdistan.”
Meanwhile, Lebanese singer Nicolas el Osta, who briefly stepped away from singing after the death of her father on Father’s Day last year, says, “I hope the Kurds gain independence and their own state. The Kurds are a good people and deserve everything good.”
Another singer, Darin Hadshiti, hopes that Kurdistan is spared the wars that are raging in the region, saying, “The Kurds deserve a better life and I am sure that with the passage of time they will flourish and prosper more.”
Lebanese singer and fashion model Nelli Makdessi, who has regular contact with many Kurds on Facebook, says, “I hope the sun that is on the Kurdish flag will rise and shine all over Kurdistan, (and that) you will regain Kirkuk and create your own independent state.”
