Shabaan Abd Al Raheem denies ridiculing Al Gaddafi in new song.

Egyptian folk singer Shabaan Abd Al Raheem denied

accusations that he ridicules the death of former Libyan President Muamar

Gaddafi in his new song. Shabaan stated that the song her released 48 hours

after the death of Al Gaddafi is a special dedication to the Libyan people for

the success of their revolution.

According to the internet website, Shabaan stated

during a televised interview with the Arab satellite channel Al Hayat that he

did not make fun of the image of Gaddafi dead, but rather said that God is more

powerful than any man and it is God's will that people go out in the streets

and hold revolutions to fight corruption and mistreatment by their rulers.

Shabaan said that in the song he warns the Libyan people

from US President Barak Obama and said that he is like former US President

George Bush and Israeli Prime Minister Arial Sharon, stressing that all these

rulers are deceiving the Arab people making them think that they are on their

side, but in fact they have their own agenda. Shabaan states in the song that

Obama's target is Libyan oil and is hoping of getting his hands on it like he

did with Iraqi oil.
