Song Of The Day: Shouting At The Wall By MC Abdul (Video)

The conflict that has been going between Palestine and Israel has quite a long story. Opinions about it are diverse and the whole thing is complicated.

At the end of the day, there are people living in these war zones. Each and every day their lives are affected by the nonsense decisions of a few people. No one should have to live like this. Not Palestinians. Not Israelis. No one.

MC Abdul (real name Abdalrahman Alshantti) is a 12 year old artist from Palestine who decided to put his pained thoughts into lyrics and try to reach the outside world and show how life can be in this terrible place.

“I’m exhausted
Last night I couldn’t sleep
And when I did
I could hear bombs in my dreams
nightmare situation
how could they be so evil
making martyrs out of children and innocent people”

It’s fair to say that this young person is doing quite a good job at using his voice to change and affect the world through his art. MC Abdul already has a record deal with Empire, a label and distribution company founded by Palestinian-American Ghazi Shamiand, whose headquarters are in San Francisco, USA.

Hopefully the world can keep learning more about the situation in this part of the world through the beautiful art of this young man.
