Shame on Enrique Iglesias. His name should be the celebrity definition of Dhimmi because he did what no other celebrity from the West–no matter how vapid–has done in over 30 years.
Last week, while we were celebrating our great nation’s independence from tyranny, Iglesias (son of Julio) helped enable tyranny. On the Fourth of July (of all days), he performed in Syria and made no comment or criticism whatsoever about the country’s presence on the State Department Terrorist List, its role as host to the headquarters of virtually every Islamic terrorist group, its cooperation with fellow Terrorist-State Iran and terrorist group Hezbollah to murder thousands in Lebanon, its lack of human rights, and its murder of thousands of its own people (in Hama) and Christians and Jews in Syria, Lebanon, and Israel. Not one word from Iglesias about how Syria helped Hezbollah murder 300 U.S. Marines and civilians in Beirut, while they slept.
There’s a reason why the uncle of the current Syrian President, Rifaat El-Assad, is known as “The Butcher of Hama.” In 1982, he murdered over 20,000 residents of and flattened the entire town of Hama, all under the sanctioning eye of the patriarch of the ruling Assad dictator family, the late Hafez El-Assad (father of current leader/President Bashar Assad).
But don’t tell it to Iglesias. He and his Syrian escorts gloated over each other. He told SANA, the state-run Syrian News Agency:
I came to Syria on my personal desire.
Then, he went on a personal tour of Damascus, accompanied by his Syrian propagandist minders.
To hear this idiot dhimmi pop star, Syria is a democratic bastion of peace and understanding. And you know that he was warned otherwise. His own words say so:
Iglesias said he wasn’t concerned about performing in Syria, “although many people have told me not to.”
Gee, I wonder why “many people” told him not to. Unfortunately, one of those people was not his British business manager, Peter Brightman, who loves Syria and orchestrated this absurdity. His manager fell for the facade:
One of the things that had amazed him was the sound of the call for prayers that was heard from mosques and the sounds of church bells showing that Muslims and Christians live in harmony with one another.
Brightman had decided to extend his stay to Syria to be able to visit as many historical sites as possible. Once the trip ended, Brightman headed to the United States of America, where Enrique resides, and an official acceptance letter to perform at the proposed event was sent from the singer.
Oh, and by the way, it appears Enrique Iglesias helped raise money for terrorists. The money raised from the concert will likely go to finance terrorism, perhaps Syrian-based Al-Qaeda insurgents against American soldiers or Syrian-hosted terrorist attacks against innocent Jews and Christians in Lebanon and Syria:
The concert was organized by private company LiBaladi, but other private Syrian companies and Syrian expatriates helped with the financing. Revenues, according to organizers, will go to Syrian charities.
“Syrian charities” means organizations that openly fund terrorism, as is commonly done by Islamic charities around the world and especially in “Mr. Assad’s Neighborhood,” ie., Syria.
Now that Iglesias has opened the door to performing in Syria, watch for more dhimmis like him from the West to also fete the country known as Terrorist Central. FYI, at the Damascus concert, Iglesias sang his song, “Love to See You Cry.” Yes, he must love to help legitimize the torture and murder of others, because that’s exactly what he did by performing there.
Some may think girlie-man Iglesias is good-looking, but it’s time for his American audience–mostly teen-age girls–AND his girlfriend, Anna Kournikova, to dump this vessel. Looks are skin-deep, but his idiocy and dhimmitude is ugly and forever.
One of Iglesias’ best known hits is “Hero,” but he’s made clear by legitimizing and turning a blind eye to the patron-state of Islamic terrorism, that he’s anything but a hero. Looking forward to Iglesias’ revamped cover of his father’s hit single, “To All the Islamic Terrorists I’ve Love Before.”
Congress requires companies that do business with countries on the State Department terrorist list to file reports detailing their dealings. Since I’d bet Iglesias and his touring entourage are incorporated, I can’t wait to read his report.
Until then (and even after), BOYCOTT Enrique Iglesias. No American should give another penny to the coffers of Syria’s new American pop music bitch-boy.
