Jews and Arabs can make beautiful music together ... especially ELECTROFUNK -- and the proof is the band Chromeo.

The guys from the super-successful group -- David Macklovitch (Jewish) and Patrick Gemayel (born in Lebanon) -- were out in NY this weekend, where we asked if things ever get awkward between the two of 'em ... ya know, because of that whole Middle East situation.

The guys told us, "We were best friends since we were kids man -- it's never awkward, it should never be awkward."

Amen to that.
