Now they have a theme song?
This whole cartoon war thing is like watching The Return of the King the director's cut; every time you think it's going to end, it just keeps on going. Why am I saying this? Well, yesterday, while chilling in a cafe with a TV playing the Rotana music videos channel, they showed a song called "Anyone but God's Prophet" (ellah rassoul allah), sang by a group of unknown singers aptly titled "The Group" (el magmoo3ah). The song was about, you guessed it, the way the Prophet was insulted, how freedom of expression should have its limits and how if you danish infidels really knew him or how much we love him you would've never done what you did, and how we need to get justice over this insult. The singers of the song are all dressed in white, with the females singers wearing Al Hijab (but in the end credits, when showing them singing the song in the studio, they weren't wearing it. Sluts.) and all of them singing it with seriously sad expressions, while a sad flute played in the interlude. Each singer sang 2 lines, and they kept repeating the catchy Chorus, which I don't full rememebr except for the last 2 lines of it, which I think went something like this " It doesn't matter what religion you belong to, God wouldn't approve of this. Anyone except Mohamed, and we have to have Justice/ get even". And then in the end credits, when they show the singers singing in the studio, they have them with serious sad and pensive faces, with a couple of the female singers crying heavily- while in the studio singing- to show how hurt and affected they are by this attack and song and covering their faces from the camera while doing this. Now, the one thought that crossed my mind when I saw this video was "Shit! This will start the whole thing all over again". People were kind of done with the whole thing, with "underground" reports of Lurpak being sold in Mohandeseen supermarkets and everything, and now this song comes along, with it simple yet catchy tune and sad lyrics, and is immedietly destined to become a # 1 hit, if not the # 1 ring tone of egyptians who want to show everyone that they JUST LOVE THE PROPHET, but can no longer find any cheese to burn. I fear that this song will play on people's emotions and will bring back this issue again, because, as the old egyptian saying goes, we would love us a funeral so we could wail and cry. I may be wrong, and hopefully this song won't catch on, but knowing the egyptian people's love for sad catchy songs, especially with the whole fad of islamic pop going on, ehh, I doubt it. The "we are so hurt over the Prophet" movement now have a theme song people. It maybe a little late for the party, but it maycbe the thing that will start it all over again.
