Lebanese Belly-Dancer Raises Eyebrows after Performing with Israeli Heavy Metal Band

W300

Israeli heavy metal band Orphaned Land performed alongside Lebanese belly dancer Johanna Fakhri at the Hellfest music festival in the western French town of Clisson on Sunday, according to France24.

“Cooperating with belly dancers has become a trademark for the band, which makes a point of using its music to bring Israelis and Arabs closer together,” France24 reported.

But this was the first time the group shared a stage with a Lebanese artist, it added.

“The gesture is far from inconsequential. Lebanon and Israel remain technically at war. The Jewish state is considered an enemy and any dealing with Israelis is considered criminal under Lebanese law” the news agency commented.

Orphaned Land lead singer Kobi Fahri told Israeli website Ynetnews that it was Fakhri who had insisted on bringing the flags onstage, despite his concerns that she would be criticized in her homeland.

Online videos of the performance have sparked a wave of comments, ranging from admiration to shock and anger, noted France24.

Melhem Barakat praised Assad , the butcher of Syria, and claimed that he was the best president Syria could have. Now this is appalling and not a common dancer who dances on the tunes of an israeli band!

I don't care who sided with Iran or Syria. I don't care if you think they're enemies or traitors. That is not the point. The point is that this belly dancer danced with a state considered an enemy of Lebanon and even expressed political notions. That is not acceptable. Forget everything and look at this.

Lebanon is at war with Israel. In other words you mean, Hizbullah is at war and using it as a means to control Lebanon.

Many Lebanese in the west do business and work alongside Jews. Especially in the US. So what is the big deal.

Israel is our enemy, trying to control us with its weapons. Syria is our "friend" trying to control us through HZB nowadays and in the past through its army, assassinations, explosions etc. So what is the difference. Nothing. Just a label.

At least she was dancing with a Lebanese flag not with Syrian or Iranian flags, like many of hezboshaitan do. Why some Lebanese have the privelage to serve the interest of the Syrian and Iranian above the Lebanese people interest and a woman can't dance with Lebanese flag on stage. I really dont see a problem.
The real problem in Lebanon is Hezbollah and their crimes against the Suni moslem including their terrorist activities.

I have ABSOLUTELY no problem with it. I am with 14 March. I hate Israel more than anyone including our bearded friend in the Baalebek. That being said, not to be narrowed minded, having a problem with the Israeli government does NOT mean that you need to hate its people. What did they do to you? Did they blow up school and bridges or was it the politicians in Tel Aviv? Further, the same story goes for the cowards in Syria. I Despise Syria more than anything but I have no problem with its people. What is happening in there now is nothing short of a massacre...
In short, try and be opened minded about the situation. You have people trying to show the world that people can coexist regardless of their differences, beliefs, and religions...If music is a way to show the world that peace is possible, than I am totally with it. Open up your eyes people...Open up your eyes...

This is the difference between us.
While Arabian world is keeping a boycott office supported by the Arabian tax payers and chasing after those trading with the "Zionist Entity-Israel" and god forbids if someone will find Israeli goods in the market or listen to Israeli music, we in Israel can consume freely Arabian goods. myself I like to drink Arak Zahlawin, listening to Lebanese music and singers.
Iove Fairuz , Have been in Jordan and saw the performance of MaJda El Roumi (a performance I'll never forgett) Love Haifa Wahbi.
Can listen freely their CD's in my car and nobody will threaten me for that.
It seems that the Arabian world is going backwards instead of forward . After 65 years of independence they still dreaming of liquidating Israel.
Well, keep on dreaming while i'll continue listening to the Lebanese music and consume good Arak.

''We are all brothers and sisters at the end..''

neighbors who want to live in peace and security, have economic and technological and university research exchanges, trade goods and services.. share our natural gaz resources equitably.. build railways that connect the countries ..

do u realize how many investors will be attracted to the middle east and tourist will come to visit Egypt, Israel, Palestine and Lebanon at the same time going by car, bus or train ? the economic boom it can create and better lives for everyone

It will start with Israel and Palestine Peace process.. both will have to recognize each countries and probably it will happen in regards to the borders of 1967 but with some modifications to it .. then peace between Lebanon and israel and syria and israel..

This Lebanese dancers have balls to do that because it is going to be difficult for her to come to Lebanon now ... at least she is starting the dream I have ..

Why :

b- the palestinians and the israelis are at peace. Forget the Hamas. it is an instrument of Iran.
c-Egypt Jordan Qatar Tunisia Morocco.... account for more than 60% of the so called Arab population and have diplomatic relations with Israel.
d- You don't know the number of Lebanese people living in Europe that have visited Israel for religious purposes or business (information and technology), I know. They come back absolutely amazed.

FINALLY let us stop the bullshit.
The Assad's stance towards Israel justified the dictatorship. Horseshit. Now that the regime will change, new Syria will be at peace with Israel.

I don't mind, but the lebanese flag should have been the same size as the israeli flag.

remember that not all israelis support what their government and army is doing. some of them support peace, support the creation of a palestinian state with east jerusalem as its capital, support the return of refugees etc.

while i wholly reject israeli violation of lebanese sovereignty and various other aggressions, i don't have anything against israelis that want a fair and just peace with its neighbors

And what i find insulting is how many maronites on naharnet will claim that their political party is the defender of christianity yet at the same time defend a bellydancer performing with the children of satan. Since when does christianity allow bellydancing in public like this? Is this how virgin mary acted? Since when does christianity support heavy metal and rock concerts?

No big deal. The israeli flag larger than the Lebanese flag, i think is most of the controversy. Jews love our food and culture. i know many of them in Australia who cant get enough, especially hommous and falafel. Lebanese are proud of our culture, food and music, and we love to share this culture, but they are politicizing it with the flags... which to many, represents Lebanese acceptance of Israeli policy. take the flags out and you take out the politics.

Danny B. i would love to believe you that you would stand at the fatima gate, but the spin doctors will always be able to convince the Israeli public that poor innocent israel is defending against the evil on the borders. there just doesn't seem to be any public desire for peace in Israel anymore... especially after electing the most fanatical, extremist government in Israeli history.

If we believe that a war isn't justified we'll oppose it same as myself and many other of the Israeli people did.
I was in 1982 war in Lebanon and agreed for the reasons the war started, as Lebanon turned into shelter for terrorist against Israel.
Most of the terror acts planed and executed from Lebanon and you can't deny it. but after we reached Beirut and PLO left to Tunisia the public opinion changed also due to many casualties.
I participated in the demonstration at Tel Aviv against Sabra and Shatila massacre although it was done by Christians but we the IDF was responsible for letting Christians in as we were thinking from European eyes and not Mediterranean.
About our extreme government , you should know that if was a moderate government in Israel they could not move, only this government is able to give back territory and evacuate settlements, same as was with Begin who gave back all Sinai and destroyed settlements,

I admit that I know nothing about this band and that their motives may be good but the bottom line for me is that it is completely inappropriate for her to be performer with an Israeli group considering the history and continued suffering of the Arab world Muslim, Christian and other at their hands. If this group were to disavow Israel or publicly stand against its actions, in other words if its members are honest an enlightened then I would b supportive of it. But so long as they are occupying Palestinian, Lebanese and Syrian territory and conspiring against Arabs all across the ME then "Bringing Arabs and Jews together" is meaningless.

The Sinai desert is very different than the west bank. Even gaza is much easier to disengage from. Who is going to remove the Hebron jewish settlement? Also you need the will and conviction that what your doing is right. Bibi and the fm lieberman have no such ambition. Lieberman is of the ultra orthodox shas... The same which justifies and authorizes the preemptive killing of gentiles or non Jewish civilian and children. One the rabbis was recently briefly arrested for inciting this violence that killing non Jews is not murder! This is what the Israeli government has become... Al Qaida type religious fanatics.

Lebanese are divided and most of the time their opinion is not based on common sense.
Many arguments are brought up from proponent and opponent. To make it simple, the Lebanese government has defined Israel as an enemy -PERDIOD- Can anyone tell me why a Lebanese citizen defy the will of his government and the majority of his people? Again like I had explained before the dancer might have done that for personal interest…condemning her act could solve the problem…but what is shocking here is the emergence of proponents…guys can’t you take some time to think and come up with unbiased non sectarian judgment…. The religious hatred and ignorance is behind the Lebanese division…..Again it’s a self destructive weakness
