PA bans Druse singer from Ramallah New Years bash

December 31, 2011 22:01

The Palestinian Authority has banned a famous Israeli Druse singer from appearing at a New Year party in Ramallah.

The decision to ban the singer Mike Sharif, known as The Druse Boy, was taken following strong protests and threats by many Palestinians who oppose "normalization" with Israelis.

The Palestinians were angered by the fact that the singer was presented as an Israeli and that some of his songs were in Hebrew. Some said it was unacceptable that Israelis songs would be sung in Ramallah on the third anniversary of Operation Cast Lead.
