Shakira: Stop The War in Lebanon
July 22, 2006
Colombian pop star Shakira, whose father is from Lebanon, called for a cease fire in the country, which is torn to shreds by Israeli bombings.
So many mothers and children are dying every day and that's something we cannot tolerate, not today, not in the 21st century, said the singer before performing at a concert in Athens.
I want to call (on) the US leaders to stop this war, because we all know that they can stop it, she said.
I just hope that there is a diplomatic and international intervention right away, I think it's necessary.
