Palestinian youth orchestra disbanded after playing for Holocaust survivors (IHT)

JENIN, West Bank: The Palestinian authorities disbanded a youth orchestra from a West Bank refugee camp after it played for a group of Holocaust survivors in Israel, a local official said Sunday.

Adnan Hindi of the Jenin camp called the Holocaust a "political issue" and accused the orchestra's conductor, Wafaa Younis, of unknowingly dragging the children into a political dispute.

He added that Ms. Younis had been barred from the camp and that the apartment where she taught the 13-member Strings of Freedom orchestra had been boarded up.
Yeah...the peace process in Gaza is going to happen.

Palestinian authorities are BIGOTS, HATEMONGERS, & UNREASONABLE ENVY DRIVEN JACKASSES!!!!! Anyone who supports their childish and asinine behavior is similarly categorized into that neat little niche...JACKASSES ONE AND ALL.

Carry on...

UPDATE: A very cursory and non-comprehensive search will reveal in a period of less than 10 minutes that Palestinians have received more than $14 Billion in financial aid (that's money...not food, supplies, medical equp.) in the last seven years. Considering there are 1.5 million "Palestinians"...that's nearly $10,000 per individual. And yet, they live in "ghettos" and "slums."
