A Trip to Fantasy Island

Imagine for a second that the arab nationalist movements of the 50's & 60's had given way to progressive governments instead of either US "client states" or fundamentalist theocracies. Forget wahabism, shia fascists, stalinist wingnuts like Saddam, and mafiosos like Mubarak, and most definitely forget the nouveau-riche feudal city-states of Dubai. Reserve the deepest part of your memory hole for the apartheid state of Israel and the eviction of the Palestinian people. Want some help? (most likely Bendali Family Band, Beirut, 1974)
