An ad by Kuwaiti mobile phone operator Zain, in which a young Muslim boy calls on world leaders to address crises in the Arab world, has gone viral. It concludes with the declaration that Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine.

In the video, released on May 17, a young boy addresses lookalikes of Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong-un, Angela Merkel, Justin Trudeau, and UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres.

In front of an unmoved Trump, the boy wishes the President a happy Ramadan, and asks him to break the fast together, “if you can find my home under the debris.”

The boy then takes Russian President Vladimir Putin by the hand and tells him about his family’s loss in war, before meeting German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at a beach while refugees come ashore. In another scene, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres is seen helping Burmese Rohingya refugees to safety.

Then, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un hangs his head in sadness, standing in the remains of the boy’s bombed-out bedroom.

The boy then frees a young girl wearing a Palestinian scarf from prison. The girl looks like a much younger version of Ahed Tamimi, an imprisoned Palestinian teenager arrested last year for kicking and slapping Israeli soldiers in her West Bank village of Nabi Saleh.
