    non-partisan because i've visited this site for over 2 years and they've never documented any other foreign rap groups. So, seems like a selective approach here. As per the unpacking of my 'racial tension' comment - Israel is not a military occupation unless you're referring to post 67 borders, which, well I can see your point. I'm a two state solution advocate who wanted to see Rabin's vision come to fruition. Westbank should be given back BUT on the condition of recognition of the Jewish state. I don't believe my initial post was inflammatory, you should be able to glean my support for a viable Israel and a viable and contiguous Palestine.

    Some really dumb people here.. I'm not even gonna dumb it down and argue with any of these cunts who just came here to hate. Much respect for these artists though, hope they do well.

    hmmm not very non-partisan of hiphopdx. This is 'news' under the guise of fomenting a political debate. Anyways, I ain't got no hate, best of luck to them, although presumptively I imagine all of their lyrics are about the 'occupation', hating zionists, etc etc. There used to be a Israeli/Pali rap duo who had concious lyrics, two state solution approaches etc, unfortunately, like most things in that area, they're relationship dissolved under racial/ethnic tensions.

      Yes populations were transfered which technically makes it ethnic cleansing, but when you write ethnic cleansing it bring to mind massive massive murder which did not happen compared to other historical 'ethnic cleansing.' And also calling Israel a white/jewish could not be more wrong (as if those two words are interchangable). Today over half the jewish population in Israel is not white (originating from north africa,ethopia,iraq,syria,etc.) Just think it's important when speaking on an important conversation that the facts are correct.

      racial/ethnic tensions? you mean the jewish ethnocracy that sees all non-jews as "demographic threats"? or do you mean tensions fumed by the longest military occupation of modern history or ethnic cleansing by the white/jewish supremacist settler colony?

      nonpartisan? so they shouldnt highlight a hip hop group because they dont accomodate your zionist political dream? thats called censorship
