Christian Singer Honors Hezbollah In Concert

Recommended Posts

Warning: contains music, some western-dressed women.

 

 

 

 

Julia was born in Beirut, Lebanon on April 1, 1968 into a Greek Orthodox Christian family to a Lebanese father and Palestinian mother. She was educated at the Rosary Sisters Schools where she sang in the school choir. Growing up, she and her brother were heavily influenced by Ziad Rahbani's works. When she was 12 years old she recorded her first song, entitled "A Maman" at Elias Al Rahbani studios. This was introduced to her by her music teacher Fouad Fadel. She also recorded two songs, "C'est la Vie" & "Viens dans Ma Vie".

 

On October 11, 2006, Julia announced a new single called "Ahibaii" (My loved ones). The lyrics are based on a letter sent by Hizbollah secretary general Hassan Nasrallah to the fighters in South Lebanon during the 2006 Summer War between Lebanon and Israel. The poet Ghassan Mataradapted the original text. The music is composed by Ziad, brother of Julia and arranged by Michel Fadel. The profits from the song's sale went to help the families of Hizbollah fighters and to all Lebanese who died during the Israel-Lebanon conflict. Sales eventually garnered three million dollars for the families of the Lebanese civilians, soldiers, security forces, and Hezbollah militants who have been killed in the Israel-Lebanon conflict. The sum was triple the original aim, which was only one million dollars. The families of Lebanese soldiers killed during operation Naher el-Bared also received a portion of the money.

If you give us this warning, then why showing this un-islamic things?

 

Un-Islamic? Don't watch it then. But she is dressed modestly (especially considering it's Lebanon), and Hezbollah puts on a lot of songs about patriotism, religion and poetry on their channel. Also, don't act like you are the purest person in the world.

Amazing... Alhumdolillah, kudos her and to Sayed Hassan Nasrallah and the Lebanese Hezballah organization for being so open, inclusive and welcoming and attracting this sort of appreciation from all quarters. This kind of wide support reminds me of the kind of support Imam Ali had during his time from minorities because of how tolerant and open his Islamic government was, towards everyone, non-Shias and non-Muslims in general (the Christians of that time used to praise such Islamic values as freedom they had under the Imam as well). 

 

Respect to her, to Nasrallah, to Hezballah, and to Lebanese people in general for being united. 


Oh and by the way Ali-F, not all music is prohibited in Islam. The extreme heavy ones are for sure not ok, but other than those there are varying interpretations and differences of opinion among the experts as to what the limits are. It's not easy to judge a mild music video like this one where there's hardly any immodesty (relative to most music videos) and call it haram.

This song is so old, it came out in 2006, the words of her song are the words of Sayed Hassan Nasrallah during the 2006 war when he sent a letter to the fighters of Hezbollah, and she did the whole concert to Hezbollah. Julia Botros is an SSNP (Syrian Socialist Nationalist Party) who resisted israel in their past, and most of her songs are revolutionary.

I wonder how tolerant Hizbollah is when it comes to how women dress. Julia Boutros is not a Muslim. So this might explain why she is tolerated. Some muslim countries accept double standards depending on religion. But e.g Haifa Wehbe is muslim. How come she is tolerated? Has Hizbollah begun to realise that compulsary hijab is a stupid and backward rule? If so, shouldn't Hizbollah be more critical against the oppressive laws of Iran?

1. Lebanon isn't an Islamic country, and not under any Islamic ruling + Lebanon isn't ruled by Hezbollah either.

 

2. Hezbollah can't force people to be religious, they are a political group and a resistance. In the Shia community you have people that aren't religious. Haifa Wehbe comes from a Shia community, and her brother is a martyr btw, but she is not religious. In Lebanon there is a lot of diversity between all communities and also in the Shia community since from before most  Shia were left wing, secular, communist.

Hezbollahs job in Lebanon isn't to impose hijab on women, they can make awarenesses, lectures, etc.. about Islam. Not more...

I guess Haifa Wehbe has lots of young fans in Lebanon (and also in other ME countries). Right? Is she an acceptable example to the youth in the eyes of Hizbollah? Or does Hizb still have ambitions to make women wear hijab?
