I know the Red Hot Chili Peppers concert is already over but I am still getting comments trying to convince me that they are evil and love Israel and no one else and we should boycott them. The last comment I got on this was the below:
Watch the RHCP express their love of Israel.
They are either:
– absolute idiots, unaware of what Israel stands for and how artists have been boycotting it for a few years.
– supportive of what Israel stands for.
– apathetic and lacking any human compassion.
I wish whomever left this comment had bothered to see other similar videos. As it happens, the RHCP upload a video showing their excitement every time they are going to a new destination (including Beirut). So I am going to say that one final time, art and politics do not mix and the RHCP boycott campaign was a complete failure.
I wonder if Israel is going to boycott the fact A. Kiedis has the whole Hitler look going on…
Najib,I’m going to tell you something ,not by la2mane but because I’m straight to the point always,you Lebanese and I don’t consider myself one because I’m ashamed of my country for many reasons I don’t want to mention now ,you Lebanese have always been fanatics ,have always taken everything as two sides of a coin as is there’s no grey area ,you either cheer for Brazil or Germany during the World cup ,and for Germany many because they’ve killed jews and don’t tell me no ,there are many single minded people who love them just because of the Holocaust ,you Lebanese always choose either Aoun or Geagea as if there’s no chance at all to have an independent party not relying on any even during elections,you Lebanese favor those parties because of the couple of hundred bucks per month that they get from them those who carry party membership cards,you Lebanese have always laughed at other people for their uneducation like the Philipino maids yet those are exactly who don’t know one single word of English ,your country is going backwards education,gay rights,culture,akhle2 wise and Israel will always and has always been ahead of you ,sooo SHAMEEEE ON OUR PEOPLE,you can post this on RHCP page
You can say whatever you want and I am glad you are speaking honestly. I have to agree with many things you said but disagree on one thing: You can be ashamed of some Lebanese, but don’t ever be ashamed of your country. Your country is Lebanon and you are a Lebanese. If others are polluting its image, criticize them as a proud Lebanese.
dude, get a life! and while you’re at it, learn to respect other people’s opinions and principles (I know, I know, it’s not easy for you, but the first time is the hardest).
Is that addressed to me? Respect who?
Respect is earned through actions and principles.
No actually Najib,I’m ashamed of most of the Lebanese living here,but the ones who left are the ones making achievements,but here it’s a dead country culturally,politically,financially and as savoir vivre
I’m also ashamed of most of the people who post comments to your posts,I just read them and realize how much fanatics they are to post comments like that in many posts,I’m sure you know their IPs ,these people must be really single minded that much that they show it in their comments how about if we really knew them,this is why I hate Lebanon because of the intolerance and narrow mindedness,because of comments like to one of your posts once when you were talking about examples about how a shi3a from the South was blabbing to her son not to show from what background he comes from because his mother doesn’t want people to know about it and in the same post you had talked about other intolerances in Lebanon as well and I remember someone replying by enoo ma l2ito gheyr shi te7ko 3anon ,and started blabbing about the Christians ,the point is not the difference between a Muslim and a Christian,the point is some people must be really backwards not to tolerate anything and can’t stand someone talking about their background as much as there are circles in Lebanon that carry many flaws,I’m sure many people will reply to me now ,like that always happens in Lebanon because they’re all people who wanna have the last word
