That this House applauds the success of Mohammed Assaf, a 23 year old singer from Gaza, winner of the Arab Idol television talent contest; notes the joy that his success has brought to the 13,000 refugees that make up Gaza since Israel’s formation in 1948; and commends his celebration of Palestinian identity, notably in his songs which stress Palestinian history and struggles of his people against Israeli occupation.
