Warda Al-Jazairia was a Arab Nationalist and singer. She was comrades with Algerian revolutionary leader Boumidienne, and sung in honour of Muammar Gadafi. Gamal Abdel Nasser, the greatest modern Arab anti-imperialist leader respected her greatly, and it was to Egypt where she lived after Algeria. Nasser asked her to perform in many important patriotic films.
She said recently in an open letter to the pro-nato Qatari news channel regarding the arab spring:
"You have killed thousands of Libyans and you continue to mow-down a large number of innocent people in Syria (...) You swear not to have borne no weapons, but I assure you that you have the most powerful weapon of mass destruction: the media. If you make misuse the media, you will kill the son of Arabism ".
Only the few stay true, until the end.
RIP Warda Al-Jazairia
