My Oslo Accord of 2006


الهجر مو عادة غريبة لا ولا منـكم عجيبة
عرفت مـن هذا فعلكم كُلمن يسوقه حليبه
جرعـت لوعـات منكم وانهدم ثلثين حيلي
آنـا كنـت ابتـعد عنـكم لو يطـاوعني دليلـي
غيـر هــذا شرد أقلكم كلمن يسوقه حليبه
.
Who would've thought that someone from Israel would come across this
silly old post and relate to it?

I got e-mail earlier today from Saleh al Kuwait's son, Shlomo AlKvity.
Shlomo, happy to see his father's music still alive among the younger generation, thanked me for remembering his dad, and told me about the release of a double CD featuring Saleh and Daoud al Kuwaiti's music soon.

The funny part is how my dad got all excited when I told him about it, he started singing one of Hudairi Bu Aziz's songs which went something like جر الكمنجة عدل يا صالح كويتي

Talk about reminiscing!

(Linking you to Salima Murad & Saleh al Kuwaiti's الهجر مو عادة غريبة has failed... I'm too sleepy to look again.)


It's a small world indeed, and Israel is one click away.
LeilaTov for now,

Update: Shlomo and Saleh AlKvity. Dedicated to Shosho.

As for tracing Kuwaiti Jews, I'm doing my share.
Although Saleh al Kuwaiti is more Iraqi than Kuwaiti.

Maseltov, Jelly Belly :**

But I'll see if Shlomo has an answer..

world is not that small, ur a celebraty!

by the way u have the toughest and silliest word verification.....ill send u the word i got by e mail

Emikweesta said...

shosho this might give you some info for ur question.

I've read a report somewhere, can't remember where now but i'll try to look it up, awhile ago like 4 years ago about the Jewish communities around the Arab world. They listed a couple of countries but not Kuwait. Bahrain was one of the countries that a report was written about, and the person interviewed, a Jewish Bahraini, said that before 1948 there were 600 Jews living in Bahrain, and now there is a small community of around 30-40 living in Bahrain, treated equally as any other Bahraini, and the rest left to the U.S and England and maybe to Isreal. So I wouldn't be suprised about the Bahraini Rabbi that meWho met in NY! He was probably one of the 600.

I wish there was a report on Kuwait, but I guess it's because the Jewish community does not exist anymore in Kuwait.. But I know a Jewish cemetery in q8 city still exists and it's part of the Kuwaiti history.

Hopefully Shlomo will have an answer :)

Shurouq said...

Ahem.. Kila Ma6goog
You flatter me

And it's: gacbb
Am I right or am I right?

Emikweesta,

My father’s favorite Jewish story is that when he was a kid, they neighbored a Jewish guy who really loved my grandpa and used to always tell him, Taher (my papi’s name), you are so kind, people would mistake you for a Jew :) My father loved this story :)

Ms.Baker said...

Shurouq-

Most of my friends in school in the US as a kid were Jewish :) At university also in the US, one of my dearest friends was an Iraqi Jewish lady in her 50's who would take me to jewellry shows with her (she had a shop). I loved hearing stories of her childhood and her family's escape from Iraq to Israel. She could belly dance to put Fifi Abdo to shame.

She was quite a wonderful person with an amazing personality and I won't ever forget her.

Thanks for your lovely post :)

Wow talk about power of communication age. I think that's a sad stroy..
You might've started what will send sparks through wires which were thought to be dead, Shurouq. Good on you and maseltov!

Very nice story, Shurouq :)

Brava Valentia said...

why am i the only one who didnt get the story ? i actually got lost when i read the links of ur previous post which led me to another links ... or maybe coz i dont have a musical background ?!

Shurouq said...

White Wings,
I think I heard that story from your dad too :)

Ms Baker,
Your friend sounds wonderful.

Thank you, Uzf
I think Shlomo deserves the credit here, not me :)

Rasheed,
I love the song!

Walladah,
للأسف.. كلامك صح
نظام الحكم في العراق شال اسم صالح الكويتي من مؤلفاته لطمس دور الجالية اليهودية في الثقافة العراقية، وفي المقابل الإذاعة الإسرائيلية رحبت بالموسيقيين القادمين من بغداد وغيرها من الدول العربية

Anonymous,
Thank you :)

Mother Courage,
Look up Saleh al Kuwaiti and you'll figure it out :)
