A revolution is not just the one carrying the rifle, a revolution is the paintbrush of an artist, the scalpel of a surgeon, the axe of the farmer … this is something I consider to be logical. Everyone struggles for their cause in the way they see fit, today I represent Palestine and today I am fighting for a cause also through the art that I am performing and the message that I am sending out. Mohammad Assaf, who just after winning Arab Idol was named a goodwill ambassador for peace by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees. Assaf is the first Palestinian to be awarded this title. (via lamaschingonaa)
