Emma uttered fiery statements during the show, thereby, provoking the ire of viewers. When asked about her religion — whether she is Muslim or Jew, she said, “Arabs are supposed to be tolerant. If I am a Jew, others should tolerate me. If I were a Jew, it would be an honor for me.”
On her nationality, she revealed she does not prefer being called ‘Emma Al-Kuwaitiya.’ She disclosed she sings Hebrew songs and nine other languages, admitting that she performed for the Jewish community in the USA. She said the US society is more open-minded and they live in peace, indicating Kuwaiti students in the US are under the tutelage of Jewish and Israeli teachers. She added that she rejected many invitations to perform in Israel, claiming many Kuwaitis and Muslims are traveling to Israel.
