Video: Arab Idol Winner Goes To Ramallah To Kiss Some Abbas أبو مازن يستقبل الفنان الفلسطيني "محبوب العرب" محمد عساف

It's sad to see a group of old farts surrounding a very popular young man--he is a lot more popular than they are. It's sad that neither of those suited men could bringing joy to the lives of the people of Palestine yet they think they are playing an important role.

Mohammad Assaf, the son of Palestine and the larger Arab world went to visit with the President of the Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas who has failed to bring anything exciting to the people who have voted him in a decade ago.

The president gave Assaf a speech about how gifted he is, and why he succeeded. It's funny how the president is talking about votes. Assaf knows how much of a big deal but he was meeting with the president and his crew. He kissed the presidents' head--going out of his way. President Abbas gave an advise--sing your own songs, it won't be easy.

At the end of the meeting they have handed Assaf the ambassadorship title and post hoping he will do some good. It was a nice photo-op for both. There were plenty of kisses and a new passport for Assaf. The Arab Idol gave a short speech and thanked the business, the folks who voted for him and the president. Note, how many young people are in the room? None. Assaf's parents were there for the meeting with the president and took a group picture.
