Gabriel,

It is very difficult in life to get around the zio influences. This is why jihad and killing zio-influenced muslims is so important. Just ask Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

I didn’t realize that Vivaldi, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, etc wrote “zio” music.

And given that the zios are typically such patrons of the arts, there isn’t much difference in the example.

As for the East West divan orchestra, it has performers from all Arab countries. Are you suggesting those fiddlers are hidden zios?

Building museums is not the same like appreciating zio music.

I know first hand zio music in not appreciated in the gulf.

So stop acting like a brain washed zio.

Also stop arguing just for the sake of argument. You’re becoming too obnoxious.

Mustap,

I’m just stating the obvious.

The orchestra played in Qatar on two occasions. They did not that one time because there may have been some fight going on.

Are you out of touch with the gulf kingdoms and whether or not they are interested in that music?

And why are these gulf kingdoms clamoring to build guggenheims and louvres.

You’re beginning to sound more like that ragtag alakhbar paper and less than the wise and pragmatic kings of the gulf

Not sure if you noticed, but here is the direct link to the NYT report. Pretty eye-opening …

If the email is obsolete, then yes: let’s replace it with a new one. You’ve been using that one since 2007 (when I used to moderate over at Syria Comment)…

Elias,

Thanks. It seems I can only post from my PDA. My work and home desktops aren’t allowing my posts through. The username and passwords are all correctly spelled. Perhaps I should have my email reset? The email is obsolete and cannot be accessed.

Speaking of “lies”, it looks like WMDs were found in Iraq after all.

http://news.yahoo.com/chemical-weapons-found-in-iraq-nyt-report-135347507.html

GWB and his administration were spot on, and in retrospect, the US should have kept permanent military bases in Iraq. Just like the bases we created in Germany, Italy and Japan, only that military bases in Iraq are even more necessary.

Nice to know that Israelis aren’t allowed into some of the utopian arab and muslim states. I’ve been to Kuwait and the UAE, and I know they aren’t missing a whole lot. I also applaud the Gulf States for pledging billions of dollars to help the brave Palestinians as they continue to show the world all the good things they do with blank checks and charity.

Hmm

Well Qatar seems to have closed a loophole…

http://english.al-akhbar.com/node/6756

A couple of years back. Still apparently they invited orchestra 4 times.

Are you sure the music isn’t appreciated? Are the Gulfies just inviting the orchestras willy nilly?

If you go in with an argetinian passport and with a valid visa you can enter of course.

Now, the issue of lying is different. Israehelites are liars as a genral rule.

As for the loopholes, I am aware that they are being actively closed. There will be no duals with an Israhell connection allowed into any Gulf country.

They are not wanted, their music is not appreciated, their products are rejects and they simply will be kicked away if they turn up.

Zero tolerance policy is in effect

As I said, there was clearly no lying required in this case. No one “snuck in” through lies and deceit into the country.

It may be that they entered with other passports, but you can not seriously suggest that a concert was held in the Emirates palace hotel by an orchestra led by one of the most famous pianists/conductors in the world without the Emirati authorities knowing about i .

So what happened?

And you say the “loopholes” will be closed. Are you actively working to close them?

I think the west should also follow and not let Arab scumbags like you to get past their imigration with acquired western country passports.

He couldn’t have passed through customs as Israeli.

He may have gone in with an Argentinian passport.

That’s the problem with these Israhelites. They always lie through their teeth and even when it comes to passports.

The problem will be dealt with and there’ll be no more loopholes.

Mustap,

The article I linked acknowledges that Barenboim is Israeli. And the web address contains .ae typical of UAE websites.

So I can only assume he didn’t sneak in with a dual nationality.

What do you suppose happened. Is this one of the manifestations of the Wise kingdoms?

It diesn’t matter. Like father like son. No Israeli will set foot in the Gulf. It’s possible they went in as US citizens or something else.

Steps are now taken to close this loop hole. Dual citizen will be scrutinized. No Israeli will ever get through.

They are not wanted.

Be careful of of rumors. These Israehellites lie through their teeth just to gain propaganda.

As a general rule, an Israehellite when s/he speaks is usually lying.
