Israel Palestine Conflict: After criticism, Abdel’s father Saleh al-Shanti said that his son is not talking peace between Israel and Palestine, but peace in the world.
Abdel came into the limelight last year when one of his rap songs went viral. However, there was a lot of criticism for comments made during a conversation with a Russian media outlet. In this interview, Abdel advocated friendly relations between Palestine and Israel. In an interview with the New York Times, Abdel said, “I advocate friendly relations between Israel and Palestine. There is no reason for war and conflict. We must improve this relationship.” However, after much criticism, Abdel’s father Saleh Al Shanti said that his son was talking about peace in the world, not peace between Israel and Palestine. According to the New York Times report, Abdel has studied in a UN-run school in Palestine and has strengthened his grip on the English language by listening to songs online.
