Political Palestinian Hip Hop is rocking... Israelis?

Amazing. This video documentary speaks to meaningful hope and the value of hip hop as a mechanism for peaceful change. Israeli youth learning about the Palestinian struggle for peace and justice... through the premier form of American-African urban poetry. All these years, many people have called hip hop "revolutionary." At last, that potential is realised. Glad to know that the work of PE, BDP, Talib Kweli, Mos Def and others in the movement is growing across the world.

Also check out Palestinian-American hip hopper Iron Sheik. He's got terrific rhymes on his site including "Neo-Con Luv Song." Great to know the real hip hop never died... and maybe is undergoing a rebirth. And The Philistines, another fine Palestinian-American hip hop crew.
