Robert Smith Breaks Silence On ‘Killing An Arab’… Again

Chart Attack talked to the Cure leadman Robert Smith about “Killing An Arab,” a song written over 20 years ago that not only created controversy during the Gulf War, but now again with war in Afghanistan. Smith insisted, “The fact is it’s based on a book that’s set in France and deals with the problems of the Algerians, so it was only geographical reasons why it was an Arab and not anyone else.” Smith had refused to comment on the song but has since changed his mind saying, “I wrote the song, so I’ve got to deal with it.”
