Chromeo

We're LIVING PROOF

Jews and Arabs Can Get Along

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.

you should know that when the nazi's made the holocaust the muslims in my country had protected the jews by hiding them in their homes ;) In fact the dispute over palestine is the only reason why the jews and the arabs dont get along . I'm muslim and i dont have a problem with jews , there's no place for blind hate ! PEACE FROM TUNISIA.

So what??? Patrick is a CHRISTIAN Lebanese and so am I and I hate muslims! your article is irrelevant and inaccurate because you cant just state that Arabs and Jews don't get along... Christian Lebanese Arabs were allied to Israelis during the Civil War.
Nice positive message though;)
