Sami Yusuf, one of UK’s famous Muslim pop singers, was 3-year-old when his Iranian parents of Azerbaijan ethnic immigrated to London after the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Recently, knowing the Iranian artist’s boycott of the Zionist entity, Sami Yusuf went ahead and performed in Israeli occupied city of Nazareth, the birth-place of prophet Jesus.
On July 27, 2015, UK’s top newspaper, The Guardian, reported that as result of Sami Yusuf performance in “Palestine” – the Iran’s State TV banned broadcasting “Islam’s top singer’s” music. This ‘smoking gun’ was picked by every Israeli and Jewish-controlled western mainstream media including the anti-Iran Arab government-owned printed media and TV channels.
Iran’s TV broadcasting official has refuted Guardian’s claim.
These Arab idiots even didn’t bother to check that Guardian newspaper is controlled by its Zionist Jew executive editor Jonathan freedland. In the past, Jewish Time magazine had declared Sami Yusuf: ‘Islam’s biggest rock star’. The Zionist-controlled Al-Jazeera English awarded him the title of King of Islamic pop, and in 2009, Jewish BBC named Sami Yusuf one of the 30 More Famous Britons.
Like the Jewish-controlled media, Sami Yusuf on his personal website also claims that he went to “Palestine” and not Israel to entertain his Palestinian fans. The guy must be idiot not to notice that 3500-year-old Palestine ceased to exist as a country on May 14, 1948. A great majority of Arab residents of Israeli Nazareth city are the lucky Muslims who were able to escape death at the hands of Jewish terrorists carrying out ethnic-cleansing of Muslims in the neighboring Muslim Arab villages in 1948. Currently, nearly two-third of 75,000 inhabitants of the city are Muslims.
Personally, Sami Yusuf prefers to be simply called Muslim artist, and not be associated with his birth country Iran – fearing that would damage his popularity and thus sale of his albums.
Since the Islamic Revolution in 1979 – Tehran has cut all diplomatic and trading relations with the Zionist entity. In fact, Israel has been at war with Iran for the last 35 years.
Sami Yusuf who has never visited Iran since his parents took residence in London, was interviewed by young Iranian journalist and author, Kourosh Ziabari in March 2015. Read the interview here.
Last year, Sami Yusuf contributed a song to Iran’s movie on the life of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Listen Yusuf praising the One and Only Lord of Universe, ALLAH, below.
