I was only stating what I witness, you see these gothic/emo type kids, guess what type of music they listen to? It's violent, and it isn't even music. I personally, listen to Power Metal, most power metal bands have meaning, don't scream, don't thrash pointlessly, and its just, great. Screamo on the other hand, screams about murder, deaths, suicide, with pointlessly loud playing (that isn't even that good by the way) so exactly, where was I misinformed when all I stated was what I witness on a daily basis?

when the human stupidity is expressed it has no limits, it's not about jew or arab it's about human ! who has this ability to make everything ugly when it can make things beautiful

this article i just read on The Guardian

Israeli poll finds majority in favour of 'apartheid' policies
Two-thirds say Palestinians should not be allowed to vote if West Bank was annexed, while three in four favour segregated roads

More than two-thirds of Israeli Jews say that 2.5 million Palestinians living in the West Bank should be denied the right to vote if the area was annexed by Israel, in effect endorsing an apartheid state, according to an opinion poll reported in Haaretz.

Three out of four are in favour of segregated roads for Israelis and Palestinians in the West Bank, and 58% believe Israel already practises apartheid against Palestinians, the poll found.

A third want Arab citizens within Israel to be banned from voting in elections to the country's parliament. Almost six out of 10 say Jews should be given preference to Arabs in government jobs, 49% say Jewish citizens should be treated better than Arabs, 42% would not want to live in the same building as Arabs and the same number do not want their children going to school with Arabs.

Israelis are the first to denounce anti-Semitism but are more aware of racism they demonstrate against Arabs who are Israeli citizens too. same old story...history has no memory.

The poll results will bolster the claim of Israel's Arab citizens, who make up 20% of the population, that they suffer from racist discrimination. Almost half the poll's respondents said Israeli Arabs should be transferred to the Palestinian Authority, and a third said that Arab towns in Israel should be moved to the PA's jurisdiction in exchange for Jewish settlements in the West Bank.

the article

Where are we going right now ? seriously people i don't get it, hate is evrey where , blind hate and stupid hate it's a shame. this world is full of hate jew arab europe asia america in evrey place hate and violence... i point this article not to say look how jew are hateful ,but to say look how human are hateful like plastenian are and others people in the world. i think evreybody will be happy when evreybody will kill evreybody.

You know the Nazis had a problem with music and anybody that got caught playing higher than a C note was immediately thrown in a concentration camp as they regarded it as "negro" music

The human race is still going backwards.

Have you ever HEARD a badly played violin? That IS an instrument of terror... at least, to anyone with a sense of hearing.

You have a group of people acting as savages, doing everything they can to cause harm to the peaceful people surrounding them....

Dolls have been used to smuggle bullets, Women have hidden explosives in their body parts. Kids are used to kill.

Isriel will take 5-10 hits before they hit back, yet... they are the evil ones? Really OP? have you ever tried to enter reality?

Isriel has palastinians in their government. Does palistine have any isrielies? Nooooooo... they are devils remember?

I'd give proper spelling and referances and historical content but you see... someone with such views is just, well, retarded. Not physically, but mentally... to have such views shows such a rejection of history, and logic... as to warrent being shushed into a corner with a pointed cap on ur head.

The world if you haven't noticed, is getting tired of lies and BS

"As for the comparison of modern day Israel to WW2 Germany, Solid Snake made a good post on page one just in case you missed it here is the link.”

Exactly why I wrote:

“but this is the last straw really. It's so grossly pathetic, I feel sad for you. Comparing Gaza to an orchestra of prisoners in the concentration or death camps takes a sick twisted mind.”

You and your buddies are good example of the above.

Comparing photos of Jews being led off to the gas chambers or firing squads with Palestinians going through checkpoints to prevent Palestinians from sending suicide bombers into Israeli cities to kill Israeli civilians, is beyond sick. Especially since the Palestinian national movement was a close ally with Nazi Germany in WWII, as were numerous other Arab leaders, and especially since they to this day share the same ideology. I wonder what that makes you kid? (rhetorical question...don't bother) I see quite a few Nazis have posted here to support you.

Your OP is based on a hoax, in case you missed that:
and belong in the junkyard much like 90% of your other posts.

And you still haven't answered me this:
If violins (a metaphor) are so needed in Gaza, why have the Palestinians repeatedly attacked the border crossings?

I'm not expecting honest answers, but humor me...

The OP is completely wrong didn't read anything from the links he posted.....not surprising really.

We're talking Wikipedia and it says "prior to June 2010...musical instruments have been, at times, banned for import."

That doesn't mean now OP and it says at times. Makes your cause look terrible in the end posting things like this.

Even if they did ban them now there would be reasons for them to do so.

As an anecdote, just so you become less ignorant, there were at least two cases of a Palestinian suicide bomber attacks that used musical instruments to hide explosives.

The Gaza Music School (GMS) was established in response to growing demand for music education voiced by children and parents who attend the Qattan Center for the Child (QCC) in Gaza City, one of the A. M. Qattan Foundation’s main projects. It is a unique project and is the only place for children to learn music in the Gaza Strip.

The school specialises in Arabic instruments such as the Kanoun and the Oud but also teaches Western classical music theory and a number of instruments. The school was destroyed during the conflict with Israel in January 2009 – but was immediately rebuilt and opened again to students in April 2009. In 2010 it counted 52 students and in 2011, the number reached 87 students.

The number of students by April 2012 was 125 students learning music and 9 oriental and classical instruments. Visit here to learn more about this inspirational project You can support the GMS in a number of ways. If you are an artist or musician you could organise a concert tour in Gaza, offer an invitation to a Palestinian group to perform or study in the UK, or host a benefit concert. If you are a music teacher, you could think of giving some of your time to support the staff in the GMS. Alternatively if you are able to contribute instruments or notation or donate funds these are most welcome.

Fundraising Concert for Gaza Music School

I call BS on your thread.

Wiki is your Proof?

Fact is CONTRIBUTE ! Send your cash ! Send your Musical Instruments !

I just proved that not only is there a school, but children ARE playing Instruments.

You can send Instruments To Gaza for children TO PLAY !

Say its not another Jew bashing thread....................

Hope it gets bounced to the Hoax Bin, where it belongs.

Hey son,

You will need to try harder than that...

No where in your link does it say how the instruments actually make their way into Gaza, and your links portrays the illusion that anyone can just organize "a concert tour in Gaza"

Are you aware of the travel restrictions either going in or out of Gaza? You obviously are not.

From your own link:

You can support the GMS in a number of ways. If you are an artist or musician you could organise a concert tour in Gaza, offer an invitation to a Palestinian group to perform or study in the UK, or host a benefit concert. If you are a music teacher, you could think of giving some of your time to support the staff in the GMS. Alternatively if you are able to contribute instruments or notation or donate funds these are most welcome.

So how exactly do I organize a concert tour in Gaza, or if I were to host a benefit concert how would the funds make their way to Gaza?

Gazans are not even allowed to travel to the West Bank for scholarships they have been awaraded but it appears that they are allowed into the UK after a lot of hurdles.

This charity does not have the ability to smuggle instruments into Gaza son, so please tell me how the instruments get into gaza because your links doesn't say.

Your link is a hoax due to the context you presented it.

If you would like to support GMS, please write to Omar Al-Qattan on or Ziad Khalaf on

"Send us your money"

Notice how the "Visit here to learn more about this inspirational project" is broken?

It looks like a scam to me.

Nice try though


You are not the first to call this a "Jew bashing thread". Please point out where I said anything about Jews, all I mentioned were Israelis and Palestinians. I even acknowledged the good within Israel and the good people of Israel protesting the blockade various times now and it is becoming redundant just like your baseless accusations. This thread is not about religion!

This is ATS and these tricks no longer work.

First, not that you care, plenty of Gazans have instruments.

Second, not that you care, the 'musical instruments' that Jews apparently had in concrentration camps, were only in some camps; and not the extermination camps. Auschwitz, Treblinka, Chelmno, Belzec, didn't have
'instruments'. As usual, you have no shame of even making mention of the Nazi extermination camps in comparison with the Gaza strip.

In 1990, five Palestinian musicians and music teachers conducted a study on the status of music in Palestine upon a request by the Welfare Association. The preliminary findings of the study convinced the team that there was an urgent need to establish a music school, to fill the huge gap in music education within the Palestinian society. In 1993, after three years of concerted efforts by these musicians, and with the support and encouragement of friends, foremost amongst whom were Edward Karkar, Munther Nabulsi, Huda Khoury and Linda Khalil Khoury, the conservatory was launched as the National Conservatory of Music, falling under the umbrella of the Board of Trustees of Birzeit University, who offered the Conservatory premises in the University Board building in Ramallah and appointed the following founders to the Supervisory Board at the Conservatory: Salwa Tabri, Rima Tarazi, Amin Nasser, Nadia Abboushi and Suhail Khoury. In October of that year, the first branch of the Conservatory opened in Ramallah. There were 40 students, three part-time teachers, a secretary, and a volunteer director – one of the co-founders,Amin Nasser. A few years later, the Conservatory opened two other branches in Jerusalem and Bethlehem. And in summer of 2010 the launched the Nablus branch. In September 2004 as a tribute to the invaluable intellectual and cultural contributions to humanity of the late Dr. Edward Said, an honorary member of the Board, the name of the Conservatory was officially changed to The Edward Said National Conservatory of Music.

The Edward Said National Conservatory of Music.

Heres another link from CNN.

Do you need more links they PLAY INSTRUMENTS?

VIDEO proof?

I gave you that also.....................

Gaza music students find smart ways around travel ban

Again I call Hoax, in your thread. I gave you proof. You want to deny the proof, and embrace ignorance.

You're just playing your game.

BTW, Catch the Palestine National Orchestra...............
They will perform in March 2013, at the Indonesian capital Jakarta and Surabaya.

What in the world are you on about? "When I see goth / emo kids, guess what they listen to...." "It's violent" (what is violent about music?) and "It's not even music" (subjective: you don't like it, so it's "not music.")

Conclusion: knee-jerk hatred for the youth culture is as old as ancient Greece, and rabidly right-wing. Goth / emo / screamo kids are no more violent as a group than bucketheads, noodlers or "power-metal" enthusiasts. The only thing you "see every day" are your own biases, and they are staring right back at you.
