Arab Hate Rap

• Views: 816

Brimming over with hatred, antisemitism, and support for mass murder of innocents, the new “Arab rap” is number one in the Middle East—with a bullet: Yo, Word Up, Arabz. (Hat tip: LGF readers.)

The Washington Post, in a patronizing article, seems to think it’s … cute.

Check out this raging rhyme tossed down in Arabic by Arab Israeli rapper Tamer Nafar and his crew DAM:

You’re a Democracy?

Actually it’s more like the Nazis!

Your countless raping of the Arabs’ soul

Finally impregnated it

Gave birth to your child

His name: Suicide Bomber

And then you call him the terrorist?

The song “Meen Erhabe” (or, “Who Is the Terrorist?”), released in 2001 over the Internet, became the first Arabic rap hit and spawned a new kind of rap that is spreading quickly throughout the Middle East, communications lecturer Usama Kahf of California State University at Long Beach says in an article under review by the Journal of Popular Music Studies.

A dozen rappers — mostly Palestinians — fill the Arab streets with rap and hip-hop beats, according to Kahf’s review of the nascent genre. DAM is the best-known. The trio has toured throughout the Middle East and in Europe. Other acts have emerged in Algeria, Lebanon, Egypt and elsewhere. Several Web sites, notably arabrap.net, serve as nerve centers for Arabic rap and help spread the music under the radar of government censors.
