Update: Iraq Unites Behind Singing Idol

In February we featured a video from an ‘American Idol’-type hit show in the Muslim world. The beautiful voice of Shada was uniting Iraqis: “Iraqi Sectarian Lines Dissolve Each Friday Night“… She has now won the competition, and, as AFP reports, “for one night, the dream of Shada kept fear and disunity at bay, as millions of Iraqis from across the sectarian and ethnic divide crowded round television sets to watch her croon into a microphone and vote for victory.” (Full AFP story)… She cried for Iraq, whose streets exploded in Victory celebration. Watch the videooriginally published by AP and CNN, spread via YouTube (2:01)
