Algeria had plans for the huge music festival in the city of Dejmila. Dejamila Festival lasts for ten days of various musical performances. It's one of the country's largest music festival. This year;s festival income was dedicated for Gaza, Palestine. People wanted to help, and the local government wanted the event to go on. Algeria has stood by the side of Palestine for a long time. My wife was born there, and she attests to that.
Algerian more so than other Arabs are more passionate about rallying support for Palestine. And Palestine loves them back--even if it was for a soccer game. Just see their national team, they donated some of their earnings to Gaza. I think the president of the republic waned to send a message and allow his people to come to the support of people of Gaza. See how the stars speak out.
