“Shabaan Abdul Rahim prays that Ghada Rizik will hate Israel”. That is the title of an article appearing on the Arab news website Albawaba.com. The article describes the casting efforts of popular Egyptian singer Sha'aban Abdel Raheem for his new movie, “Ana Bakrah Israil” (I Hate Israel). The title of the planned blockbuster was taken from Abdel Raheem's 2001 international hit song of the same name, in which the singer declares his hatred for Israel and the Jews, and his love for Yasser Arafat, Hosni Mubarak, and Arab League chairman Amr Mousa. At one point, in the song's chorus, Abdel Raheem sings, “I hate Israel. I hate the Jews, I hate them. I hate them because they are annoying. All people hate them.”

Sha'aban's latest Arabic hit is called “The Attack on Iraq”, and portrays America as warmongers acting on behalf of Zionism. “Chechnya! Afghanistan! Palestine! Southern Lebanon! The Golan Heights! And now Iraq, too? And now Iraq, too? It's too much for people. Shame on you! Enough, enough, enough!...” the Egyptian artist sings, “Sharon stays in a swimming pool while the blood falls like rain.”
