Party at a Religious Place – level 1

05-01-2021 07:00

Nabi Musa is a shrine in Palestine. A shrine is a religious place. People go there and they pray. People dedicate a shrine to a religious person. People dedicate Nabi Musa to the Prophet Moses. They build Nabi Musa in the 12th century.

A party is at Nabi Musa last week. A Palestinian DJ has a concert there. Some angry men come to the concert. They make the visitors leave.

Police arrest the DJ. She must stay with the police for more than 15 days. The DJ’s brother does not agree with the police. He says that the party is legal.

People sign a petition on the Internet. They hope that the DJ will be free soon.

Difficult words: religious (something that relates to a god), dedicate (when people do something because they want to show respect for a person), petition (an official document that a lot of people sign because they want to change something).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
