Give these people a state, and quick

How dare you perform music for Jooooooooos?:

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 on Sunday.

Adnan Hindi of the Jenin camp called the Holocaust a political issue and accused conductor Wafa Younis of unknowingly dragging the children into a political dispute.

He added that Younis has been barred from the camp and the apartment where she taught the 13-member Strings of Freedom orchestra has been boarded up.

No Arabs living in Palestine were evicted from their land during the War of Independence. At least, not by Jews.
This is an elaborately constructed myth that even Said Aburish, not exactly a fervent Zionist, has exposed in interviews.

Damn that’s a weak excuse (the holocaust is political). Why not just come out with it and say “We don’t want to play nice with the Israelis”
Why does the whole holocaust-survivors-visiting-a-camp-to-hear-music remind me of “Playing for time”?
