Prominent Lebanese musician received death threats from Syrian government

Prominent Lebanese singer Fadel Shaker has announced that he resigned from his singing career permanently. Fadel made his decision after taking part in a recent demonstration opposing the Syrian government’s cruelty against its people and standing by the side of the Muslim group Salafying and announcing that he is one of them. Fadel also revealed that he has received death threats from the Syrian government and their supporters in Lebanon, but despite everything he will not change his views and will always support the Syrian people.

Fadel said during an interview with the Egyptian television channel Al Rahmah that the main reason behind his decision to resign is the fact that he is becoming closer to God and is a more devoted worshiper. He added that his closeness to God made him realize that he is walking in the wrong path.

The singer revealed plans for preparing a number of religious songs and ended his interview by wishing the Syrian people victory over the current regime of President Bashar Al Assad, who Fadel describes as a dictator brutally massacring his people.

    Typical civilized behavior, if you do something that we do not approve of, we will come and kill you. I can’t believe it!! Why do we have to be stuck next to Moronic neighbours. Instead of freeing the Golan, they are wasting their time on a protesting singer!!

    Too young to have the music die … but the force became strong in him. Should have tried the Baptist Church …..

    I am going to comment on this man’s retirement from singing to be “closer to God” supposedly!!!!
    Oh man, in this day and age, if you still think that GOD wants you to be ALWAYS sad and num artistically, you are living in a different time. The god of Islam prevents people from singing, dancing, playing sports, be creative, challenging them selves mentally and intellectually, he prevents muslims from thinking and questioning as in the aya that says: “…don’t ask about matters that seem to you that they harm you….”
    Poor Fadel Shaker, not withstanding the fact that me too I am against Assad and his tyranny in Syria because I want democracy to be established in Syria and not dictatorship or theocracy, but the thing that drew my attention in this story is the retirement of this poor (very very poor) man from excercising his vocation that makes him and others happy….in the name of God. What a disappointment and sickening/self destructing decision. No wonder in the islamic world the creators are almost non-existent, the artists are become rare and less and less, although the population has doubled in the Arab world say since 50 years, but the artists and the arts in general are declining in numbers….guess why…..yeah you guessed it because of Mohammad, his teachings and his supposed religion.

    Gooooood Luck  my friends on keeping the ignorance ALIVE! But throught the internet and the information technology the truth about Islam is being revealed, this supposed religion is on a downward decline because people are starting to use their minds finally, the minds that the real GOD gave them in order to use. While Mohammad came and told them NOT to use their minds, to believe without ANY questioning.
    My friends, Only Jesus Christ is the WAY, The TRUTH and the LIFE, nobody else. Jesus was asked by the people: Master, would there be other prophets who will come after you ? and he answered, ” yes there will a lot of prophets who will come after me but they are all liars, you will recognize them from their fruits (their actions), they will talk to you like lambs and act like wolves, don’t believe them”. Mohammad, did exactly that. Look and examine his life, what did he do ? He fornicated with tons of women and killed thousands to force the rest to believe in him. He killed others in the name of god….this is a messenger from GOD ??? Don’t you have a mind to think and use and distinguish between GOOD and BAD ? I leave you with these thoughts my friends…..this Fadel infuriated me enough to come out and post this. It has been a long time that I had not posted on this site. I hope the censors will not delete my posting in the name of freedom of speech.

    Let the peace of Jesus Christ reign in your hearts!
