Israeli Song Viral in Arab World
By Micah Halpern

Saturday January 29, 2022
I've Been Thinking:

An Israeli comedienne wrote a song called “Dubai Dubai” and the song is going viral in the Arabic world.

“Dubai Dubai” is a lampoon on the Abraham accords.

The name of the songwriter / comedienne is Noam Shuster-Eliassi. Singing her song in perfect, unaccented, Arabic, she pokes fun at Israel and at the Arab world.

Here are some of the lines from this song/satire.

“Israel goes to make peace with a country 1,500 miles away and forgets the Palestinians next door.”

“In Dubai, they forgot the siege on Gaza.”

“How nice would it be if only all the Arabs were from Dubai.”

Humor is such a wonderful vehicle for dealing with tensions and problems.

The Arabic world is not free to create their own humor. Monarchies are autocratic and even those states which have elections and presidents are not really totally free democracies. Humor about and criticism of the government is punished.

The comedienne, Noam Shuster-Eliassi is an Israeli woman singing in the style of Eurovision to Israelis and Arabs. Her audiences relate to her observations. Her video viewers even laugh out loud.
