A decade ago, a group of Palestinian boys in a Palestinian village in southern Israel’s Negev desert banded together to create their own version of the “punk” that had become the subject of much controversy.
Now, nearly 10 years after their debut, their brand of ultra-hardcore is back on the scene, and its impact is still being felt.
In an interview with The Jerusalem Times, Zaytoun Abu Zaytaan, who heads up the Palestinian band No Rage, described the moment he and his fellow boys realized that their unique sound was part of the Palestinian identity.
“When we were young, it was just us.
It was a collective,” said Abu Zair, who has been in a coma since his brother was shot dead by Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank in July 2014.
“The boys were just young, just in their teens.
We were just kids, but we were the kids.”
The band, which was formed in 2008, is the latest incarnation of a Palestinian punk rock scene that began in the 1980s, after the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) established the Palestinian Youth Movement (PYM) in the West Bank.
The movement, which has since become an umbrella for a range of Palestinian youth groups, was founded by Palestinian militant Omar al-Basha in 1980.
In the years since, Palestinian youth have been vocal in their opposition to Israeli policies, such as settlements, and have also expressed solidarity with other oppressed groups, such the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, and the Palestinian people who live in the besieged Palestinian refugee camps in Israel.
In addition to the PYM, there are also numerous Palestinian bands, such a Fatah, Hamas, Hamas-affiliated groups and other groups, as well as independent Palestinian artists.
The Palestinians also have their own independent music festivals, such Fatah’s Nahr al-Shams festival in the northern West Bank, which attracts tens of thousands of Palestinians annually.
“There’s a lot of Palestinian artists who are making their way in the music industry,” Abu Zailan said.
“It’s not just about being a band, it’s about being able to play and do things that make you feel proud of yourself.
We’re proud of it.” “
What is important to us is that we are part of a generation, the generation of Palestine.
We’re proud of it.”
The Fatah-affiliated Fatah Music Festival has a capacity of nearly 2,000 people, while Hamas-related Fatah festival, known as the Fatah al-Quds, has a smaller capacity of more than 400.
“We have more than 30,000 participants every year, many of them are from the Gaza strip, and many of the performers are Palestinians,” Abu Sarmad said.
Abu Zailyan, a 23-year-old student from the Palestinian city of Ramallah, is one of the most popular members of the band.
His name is known to the public, and his performance is also seen as a symbol of Palestinian unity and solidarity.
The band was formed after the band’s members decided to form a band called No Rage in 2007 after they heard that Fatah had disbanded.
The group was later renamed Fatah.
Abu Sarma, a 27-year old student, joined the band when he was 16 years old.
Abu Suhail, another student, said that the band is one that is “finally getting a chance to express themselves in a positive way.”
“I’m proud to be a member of the group, and I’m proud of the way we are playing,” Abu Suhaal said.
Fatah is a Palestinian youth movement, an umbrella organization that was established in 1980 to advocate for the rights of Palestinian citizens of Israel and the Palestinians, including the Palestinians living in the Palestinian territories.
It also promotes the Palestinian cause through the Palestinian National Initiative for National Liberation, or PNIL, a Palestinian organization.
The PNILS is a loose umbrella organization whose members have been active in the United Nations and international civil society since the 1990s.
Fatasal said that Fatasall also considers himself an artist.
“I don’t know how much more I can express myself,” Abu Sayal said, adding that the group was able to produce its own music through a group known as Al-Fatah, which he said was composed of members of Fatah and other Palestinian youth.
“At first we were just trying to be the only group in the village,” he said.
“[Now] we are trying to bring music to the youth of the village and make it more accessible to them.”
Abu Zayed, a 17-year of age, said he also joined the group when he started high school in Ramallah.
“In high school, there was a lot going on, and this is something that we decided to do to show
