Punk Band The Restarts Get Destroyed Over Anti-Israel Facebook Post

2699

English street punk band The Restarts decided to share this anti-Israel article from MondoScheisse (hat tip: Michal).

Judging by the harsh response, I’d suggest they may want a restart of their own.



Here’s just a sample:

You get the idea. And I don’t think they received even one supportive comment.

Besides the comments, their “review score” is now down to 2.5 out of 5; before this post it was apparently 4.9. There are some biting review comments as well.

The Restarts seems to be fans of Johnny Rotten

Maybe they should listen to him more often.

Update: In response, The Restarts have posted this from their new album “Uprising”

There ain’t no circumstance
that justifies
Ethnic based privilege
State apartheid
State nationality rights
Only apply
To Jewish citizens
All others are denied
Mass ethnic cleansing
In 48
Forceful displacement
to create an ethnic state
8 million refugees
Still stuck outside
The “birthright” policy
Not valid for their kind
DENIED EXISTENCE
DENIED THEIR RIGHTS
RISE UP, RESISTANCE
THERE’S NO EXCUSE FOR APARTHEID
Unarmed civilians
Shot dead on sight
Peaceful protesters
Who stood up for their rights
Kids, medics, journalists
Robbed of their lives
by US bullets shot
by Israeli snipers
The rest of Palestine
Is still occupied
52 years of hell
While settlers colonise
It’s time to rise up
Open your eyes
Boycott, divest and sanction
End apartheid
From the Jordan River to the Mediterranean…
In solidarity
Demand equality
Return of refugees
Til Palestine is…
FREE FREE
PALESTINE
FREE FREE
PALESTINE
(Outro: audio extract of footage I filmed during Friday protests in Khan Al-Ahmar, Palestine, against the planned demolition by Israeli Occupation Forces.
“Paradise
Paradise is my homeland
Even your fire [referring to the struggle, sorrow and poverty] is all like paradise [meaning everything in our homeland is a good thing to our hearts] Oh my beloved homeland, your heart is kind”
Translation by a friend and ISM colleague in Gaza)

I’m not sure what offends me more: the genocidal, lie-ridden lyrics…or the terrible music.

Update: Seems I have touched a nerve.
