U.S. Jewish Leader Henry Siegman to Israel: Stop Killing Palestinians and End the Occupation

At my birthday party on July 27, 2014, Steve Salvari and Keni Stevens dropped by somewhere around Midnight! The music was flowing and I launched into a bluesy version of “Superstition” - Steve responded with a truly funky vocal that sounded just right for this… then Keni Stevens and Rouhangeze Baichoo threw in some additional vocals, kind of randomly, while Maurizio Minardo added some spookily-funky piano-accordion! Result? It’s got ‘life’ - and I love it!

Recorded ‘live’ at my birthday party on July 27th, 2014, Rouhangeze sings this blues- and swing-influenced version of Gershwin’s “Summertime” which we rehearsed a couple of years ago. I play the guitar and Maurizio Minardi adds some tasty piano-accordion! This tune really ‘rocks’ when it gets going, with Rou offering lots of ‘bluesy’ vocal explorations along the way!

Jon Snow's return from Gaza, Palestine July 2014

How do we stop this? By stopping Israel - there can be no doubt about this! Israel, one of the most militarily powerful states on the planet is attacking the Palestinian civilian population - as Jon Snow is a witness to. Gaza has no army with which to defend itself, as it is an Occupied Territory controlled by Israel. Hamas is virtually powerless when faced with the Israeli army - the figures for dead and injured by Hamas are a tiny, tiny fraction of the dead and injured by the Israelis. These figures speak for themselves.
