Statement on Malek Jandali

Washington, DC | www.adc.org | April 12, 2012 -- The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) expresses regret to Malek Jandali and his fans for the unfortunate circumstances pertaining to the performance of his piece “Watani Ana” at the June 2011 American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee National Convention. The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee regrets any action that may have given the impression that Mr. Jandali’s invitation to the event was withdrawn, and that his song “Watani Ana” was nevertheless played at the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee annual Gala. 

The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee is pleased to announce that an amicable resolution with Mr. Jandali regarding this matter has been reached. Mr. Jandali is a composer & pianist of the highest caliber. The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee will continue to support him and his powerful message of peace, freedom and harmony. It is in this spirit we hope to move forward and continue to build our grassroots network, as we work to empower Arab Americans.
