‘Freedom Fighters, My F***ing A**’: Disturbed’s Lead Singer Blasts Hamas, Passionately Defends Israel | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Publisher's Note: This post appears here courtesy of the The Daily Wire. The author of this post is Hank Berrien.

    David Draiman, the lead singer of the heavy metal band Disturbed, paused in the middle of a concert to give an impassioned speech about Israel, saying of Hamas' claims that they were "freedom fighters," "Freedom fighters, my f***ing a**."

    In the middle of his concert, Draiman welcomed a nine-year-old girl on stage, who brought him a bracelet with Draiman's name on it. When Draiman saw the gift, he got down on his knees to hug her, saying, "That's awesome. I'm getting kind of misty-eyed just looking at it."

    Holding up the gift, he said, "What it says is Am Yisrael Chai. And what that means," pointing his finger at the crowd, "is the nation of Israel lives and will endure."

    "You know, I've held back speaking about this," he declared. "War is hell in every sense of the word. It breaks my heart to see the ridiculous loss of life on both sides. It breaks my heart that the two people on the face of this planet that are closest in blood lineage to anyone on the planet, the Jews and the Arabs, have been fighting each other for centuries and it's absolutely maddening and it's ridiculous. And there needs to be a future where we have peace and coexistence, and the only way that's going to happen is if the next generation is no longer taught to hate."

    "People like to go ahead and say that people who come from my lineage - and I have relatives, over 2,000 of them, still living in Israel, I knew people, I miss people, that were slaughtered like animals at the NOVA festival. I have a friend of mine who had to sit and bide his time with his friend in a garbage heap while friends of his were being raped right next to him by these barbarians who call themselves 'freedom fighters,'" he recalled.


    "Freedom fighters, my f***ing a**," he snapped. "Rape is not 'resistance.' Slaughtering innocents at a music festival that's meant to bring people together of all walks of life is not 'resistance.'"

    "And I genuinely feel empathy for the Palestinian people despite what everyone on the other side of the equation likes to claim," he said. "There isn't a single Jew on the face of this planet that does not celebrate life. We celebrate life. Hamas celebrates death, and they need to be eradicated. Not the Palestinians, but Hamas. We need to save Gaza from Hamas for a future for the Palestinians and for a future for the Israelis so that finally we can bring some sort of a prosperous coexistence and an end to these countless years of bloodshed and struggle."

    "Do you understand? It is a dark time we're living in, and there are people who like to go ahead and use our fear of one another as an excuse to gain power, as an excuse to profit off of our own misery and suffering. It's dark times, my people; it's dark times. But sometimes darkness can show you the light," he concluded.

26 days after the October 7th Terror attacks on Israel, where over 1400 Jewish men, women and children were gruesomely murdered, and hundreds more made hostage: Should the Biden /Harris administration finally state that the administration's primary Middle East negotiating partner, Iran, is behind the funding and strategy of the aggressors, the Hamas Terrorists, or continue to take the more moderate position of "Don't," which is clearly not working?
  Yes, name Iran as the funding /strategy culprit, and begin to enforce the President Trump era sanctions to END Iran's ability to prosecute this war against Israel and the United States.
  No, Iran is a valuable partner in the motives of the Biden / Harris administration, and must not be named as the culprit and our enemy.
  I have larger concerns just to survive in this economy.

In the minds of many, since January 20, 2021, the World has become far less safe in every theater of conflict, beginning with the attack of Israel by Iran /Hamas, so the question becomes: What caused this Worldwide calamity of extreme geopolitical dysfunction, and what will correct it?
  Joe Biden is the cause of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when a Republican is elected president.
  This delayed Worldwide dysfunction and constant conflict is all Donald Trump's fault, as it is with everything that occurs going forward, and long before the man ever became the 45th president..
  Joe Biden is the "root cause" of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when former President Donald John Trump is elected president.
  In the imitable words of Alfred E. Newman: "What, me worry?"
