SHAME: Dhimmi American Pop Star Plays Syria–1st in Over 30 Yrs; Funds Terrorism

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.

Pop-Star-Dhimmi-in-Chief: Enrique Iglesias Hearts Assad

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.

There’s a Dhimmi born every minute.
boycotting this tool will be easy…
actually, it’s implicit. i only buy music from artists with talent.

Am I missing something?
Notwithstanding the additional paperwork requirements, how does an American citizen go to Syria? Isn’t it like traveling to Cuba? Isn’t the necessary documention required before travel? I recall several recent Congressional ‘Research’ trips but we’re talking about Iglesia being a private citizen. Is he in deep kimchi? Is he subject to arrest, or at least a debriefing? What are the rules, anyone?

Syria just invaded Lebanon. (http://www.michaeltotten.com/) This concert looks even worse.
I once took an archaeological tour of Syria and Jordan. The ruins were quite impressive, both to look at and to imagine what had been there.
Current Damascus is a dump.

Pelosi’s trip to Syria made all of this possible. Must remember that young Enrique is really more Spanish than American, and the Spaniards have a love affair with Islamists of all stripes (and, like most other Europeans, they hate Jews and Israelis).
Off Topic: USA Today has a disgusting CAIR-placed story about how kids are more religious than their parents:
Of course, we all know that the whole point is to make Muslims look good and Christians and Jews bad. Notice the “beautiful” photos of the young Muslim woman (who is, in fact, a Chicago CAIR operative) and her mom.

“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… yada, yada, yada …”
He obviously took your prior advice: Shut up and Sing!

I must remember to check this guy’s background. Isn’t his mother Filipino? She may be islamic, as there are a lot of islamics there. To this day, they’re giving trouble to the gov.

I just wanted to let you know I do not agree with you. Enrique is the sweetest person in the world He went to a country to make people happy. Teh only reason people warned him not go was becasue they were worried about his safty.

enriquesgril on July 10, 2007 at 11:13 am

Even tho you are entitled to your opinion I think you should just stick a sock in your mouth or at least interview Enrique himself and ask him why he went! I was scared at first when I heard he was going there but once I figured out why he was going I completely supported him and still do! He went there to make people happy and obviously he did cause I’ve seen plenty of videos from the concert that shows he did so I think you need to go worry about other celebs instead of Enrique someone who was just trying to make the people of Syria happy! Your just one of those writers that don’t understand the real reason and for those of you who think Enrique can sing I think you need your hearing checked! Enrique is the most sweetest caring down to earth person I know! Yes, I know him cause I’ve met him MANY MANY MANY times in person and he’s such a sweetheart and does things ALL the time out of the kindess of his heart! So, the next time you think of bashing Enrique look forward to me and all his fans coming back to tell you the real truth! To all the people that wanna boycott him for doing that go ahead cause you were never a “fan” of him or his music in the first place so good riddance!!!!

I wanted to add that. Enrique has been touched by terrorism in his life. When he was a young child his grandfather was kidnapped by a terrorst goup and he and is older brother were theated and forced to leave his mother and move to the USA with his father. On the morning of 9/11 His mother and sister where in the NYC. Madrid Spain his home town was attacked my terriots and many many were killed. It is also worth noting that Enrique visted Isreal also against the advice of others and he toured Isreal as well and even left a note in the Waling wall.

Debbie Debbie Debbie.. what a close minded individual you are. The sad part of your comment is that you you limited your self to a bubble… instead of seeing the reality of the object in discussion. Enrique did not go to sing to Terrorist… see not everyon eis Syria thinks like you. There are individuals who are completely innocent and have nothing to do with the wars of this world. In Syria like in any other country of this world you will come across the good and the bad… he respected the people and thier religion. He paused during his concert to let those who needed to pray do so. He did not go with weapons of mass distruction or with sermons on wars.. He was there to enlight people with his music, people that have been suffering for many many years… and I strongly believe he did his job well. To perfection. Yet you sit here and bash him like he is this evil being…
go ahead and boycott his music.. what are u going to do stop buying music that you never bought before.. sounds kind of foolish….
but thats what u have made of urself a fool!!!

kikemyhero on July 10, 2007 at 1:06 pm

You know nothing of which you speak! Enrique was there to make music and happy the soo many fans he has there! this has nothing to do with the wars and unfortunate destruction that goes on
have you even hear his music! NOOOO how can you want to boycott his music!!
YOu are a sad individual and i hope you research next time you write about something you nothing about!!!

sharon4ei on July 10, 2007 at 1:34 pm

I just want to say that not everyone is as narrow minded as you obviously are,do you think that everyone in the middle east is a terrorist? Enrique was there to perform for his fans, it had nothing to do with terrorism. In every country there are good and bad but not everything in the middle east revolves around terrorism. You are not only insulting Enrique but also the people of Syria. It was just a concert, a concert in which Enrique has had rave reviews for. So if this article was an attempt to drag him down you’ve failed miserably because all his true fans out there will not boycott his music and you are obviously not a fan. You’re right of course there are terrorists out there but its only a small minority and to suggest that Enrique has anything to do with terrorism is ridiculas. Enrique himself has experienced terrorism in his life, his very own grandfather was kidnapped by terrorists, thats the reason he had to move to the US. Why can’t people understand that not everyone judges people on where thery’re from or what religion they are?

chaz84 on July 10, 2007 at 4:55 pm

Debbie: I am appalled that such a way-out-there interpretation was put on Enrique’s trip to Syria. The man is an artist, a singer. He went to Damascus to sing. And obviously the fans there wanted to hear him. They showed up. He sang. Everybody had a great time. Case closed. Good gracious, but you have a very warped point of view.

llovese on July 10, 2007 at 7:07 pm

I just love how all of the supporters of the terrorists jump right into that the muslims are always and forever ‘victims’. I’m sooooo sick of hearing how Israel is the reason for every problem and/or issue that the muslims have. The bottom line to these bottom feeders is that anyone who dares to question muslims or Islam has to be a narrow minded, bigoted Zionist!
Some of this crap is so heartwrenching that I’m sitting here crying all over my Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato sandwich.
Maybe next time try responding to something written in your own part of the world……Oh,I forgot….your opinion in your part of the world is probably worthy of some sort of stoning penality. All the same, as one American, I could give a rat’s ass about your viewpoint. Debbie calls it just how Debbie sees it!!
