Leave it to a transsexual singer to achieve what political leaders and humanitarians have been trying to do for decades: bring the Arabs and Israelis together. In the words of a wise Madonna, "Music makes the people come together."

"Say No More," a trance tune by Aderet, an up and coming transsexual Israeli singer, is all the rage right now in Lebanon. The song has topped the famous "Beirut Nights" radio station.

Aderet's management sent "Say No More," the lead single off her first English-language album, Jewish Girl, along with a remix by DJ Dvir Halevi to the Lebanese station.

"They added the remix to the playlist and a few days later, it was at the top of the most played list," said Aderet, "They know I'm an Israeli singer, and that it's an Israeli song." She continued, "It feels great, it's a big honor for me and makes me so happy that they let a 100 percent Israeli song to be played and to top their playlist without letting politics interfere."
