Viral Ramadan commercial addresses world leaders

A Ramadan television advert showing an Arab boy's message to world leaders has gone viral as Muslims around the globe welcome the holy month marked by fasting and charity.

A Ramadan-themed television advert showing an Arab boy's message to world leaders has gone viral as Muslims around the globe welcome the holy month marked by fasting and charity.

The three-minute Ramadan commercial features an Arab child singing to current global leaders including the likenesses of U.S. President Donald Trump, Germany’s Angela Merkel, Russia’s Vladimir Putin and the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.  

The commercial ad reminds the world Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine while the boy appeals to world leaders to end the region’s wars and to help Muslim refugees.

In the opening shot of the clip, the young boy wishes Trump a happy Ramadan and invites him to Iftar at his house, “if he can find it in the debris”.

He tells the US leader that he is invited to Iftar in Jerusalem, the capital of Palestine; an apparent reference to the president’s recent decision to relocate the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
