Michael Jackson in the Middle East

Not much to say on Michael Jackson's life and death that others haven't said, but his circualtion as a global symbol of ... something always fascinates me. Enthusiasm for Michael Jackson in the Middle East continues to surprise and interest me, along the lines shown below.

My favourite Michael Jackson moment does not in fact feature Michael Jackson. It is the interrogation scene from Three Kings, where the Iraqi soldier questions a puzzled Mark Wahlberg about what has been happening to Michael Jackson.

NB: transformation of MJ's face at end of clip added by person who put it on You Tube - not part of the original film.
