[Media Source*] (Israel Today) As weird as it may sound, a Jewish band is becoming extremely popular amongst Arabic youth. The name of the band is called "Orphaned Land" which is a band from Tel Aviv. Many of the Arabic fans loved the lyrics so much that they traveled as far away as Egypt and Jordan just to see them play in Istanbul, Turkey.

From the band:
"Our music reflects harmony between east and west, light and darkness, Judaism and Islam," said the band's leader, Kobi Farni. "It was unbelievable to see how Arabs from all over the region sang along with our songs in Hebrew and Arabic. The majority of our songs are about God, the Bible and society. Our music is a mix of heavy metal, progressive and black metal, but generally I would call our music 'Middle East metal,'" said Kobi. The use of oriental instruments, such as the oud, saz, and the bazouki, give the music its Middle Eastern flavor.
Could this catch on in America? Probably not, but it is good to see something like this in the Middle East. Maybe we should send Al-Zarqawi a copy to listen to. Selah?
