WATCH: 'Rap News' takes on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict

Decades of failed peace talks have led nowhere. But do not lose hope just yet: join Robert Foster as he attempts to host the first ever Middle East Peace Raps, using rhyme and reason to bring together Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu, and a representative of Hamas. We investigate the key arguments, counter-arguments, ad-hominems from both sides. But the picture would not be complete without a thorough discussion of “America’s last taboo,” as Edward Said once referred to it: the U.S.’s role as Israel’s best (and only) buddy in the world (OK, together with Australia). Featuring special cameos from prominent American Jewish scholar Dr. Norman Finkelstein and Palestinian rap legends DAM.

      Yes I do agree with actor Bibi, delegitimation of Israel is very harmful for the Zionist regime.

      “The West Bank and Gaza are our bantustans (South Africa), reserves of labour for Israel but no freedom of labour,” professor Israel Shahak quoted in World must deny legitimacy to Israel.

      completely, utterly ignored half the history, full of inaccuracies.

      67, Israel invaded.. what….
      3 armies attacked Israel. Jordan, Syria, Egypt. from 3 fronts.

      And Nakba? Caused by 7 arab armies invading Israel on 48.

      In 48 – Israel HAS accepted the partition plan and Arabs haven’t and attacked and lost.
      Conveniently hidden!

      Don’t let me get started of apartheid, learn the f8ing meaning.
      In SA, there were laws for apartheid.
      In Israel, all Israeli arab have same equal rights by law (Arab high court judge, anybody? numerous arab doctors? University professors?)

      The ‘apartheid’ is against FOREIGNERS, since palestinian arabs are FOREIGNERS to Israel.

      Israel discriminates between its own citizens and foreigners, just like ANY other country in the world.

      And last – Gaza.
      Ruled by Hamas – outlawed even by Egypt! Even the arab nation of Egypt agrees with Israel – this is a murderous organization sets out to kill JEWS and states so OPENLY.

      nice job not telling the 50% of the facts.
