Egyptian and media lawyer Khaled Abu Bakr announced his willingness to defend the Syrian artist Asala in the event that the Libyan government of Al-Wefaq filed a case against her because of her latest song.
Abu Bakr stated that the Al-Wefaq government attacked Asala because she had performed a song in which she placed the image of Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi next to the picture of the Libyan mujahid Omar Mukhtar.
The Syrian star Asala had released the song “Love and Peace” on June 30, coinciding with the anniversary of the June 30 revolution in Egypt against the rule of the Muslim Brotherhood, and the song calls for peace in the whole world with the help of different nationalities that appear during the clip.
The lyrics of her new song did not attract attention as much as the images of Arab political leaders such as Omar Al-Mukhtar, the late President of Egypt Anwar Sadat, the current president Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi, the late president of the Emirates, Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, and the late King of Saudi Arabia, Abdel Aziz Al Saud, in addition to Other non-Arab personalities such as Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi.
