  • YehudaMizrahi
    YehudaMizrahi6 year agoExcuse me but Debka is not "Palestinian" (FAKEstinian) it's a dance from the Geographical AREA known as the Levant which includes Lebanon, Israel, Syria and Jordan. We have 1.5 million Israeli Arabs who dance this Debka so yes it can be called Israeli. Especially the Israeli Arab Druze in Israel who dance it a lot.

    Mirjam Aaron-Zach7 year ago@gilboagilboa . The Israeli Debka is choreographed for women and men and danced by Dancers all around the whole world, it doesn't matter the age, religion, sex, ethnic roots....
  • gilboagilboa
    gilboagilboa7 year ago1) At the risk of sounding sexist: I think Debka expresses a kind controlled physical power that makes it more appropriate for male dancers. 2) It's great the way the kids in the audience get into the music!

  • JohnJE123
    JohnJE1238 year agoHuh? Half of Israeli Jews have roots in the Arab and Muslim world. The number of Americans living in Israel is quite small. By now, most Ashkenazim--other than recent immigrants from the former USSR--have been in Israel at least 2 generations and are more at home with hummous & falafel than golumpki & borsht. And Jews from Arab countries were not "influenced" by Arab culture, they were PART OF that culture. This is not to say that debka is "Israeli" to correct your "facts."
  • JohnJE123
    JohnJE1238 year agoI suspect that the origins of the debka pre-date BOTH the Jewish presence (c.10th Cen. BCE) in Eretz Yisrael/Falastin, AND the Arabization of the Fertile Crescent (beginning with the Muslim Conquest in the 7th Century CE). If we really want to get technical, I don't think any Middle East country or community can claim "ownership" of the debka. That being said, both sides of the debate should be sensitive to the feelings of Palestinians and of Mizrahi Jews, who were BOTH ethnically cleansed.

    Mirjam Aaron-Zach9 year agoI wrote Israeli Dance Debka Oud, because the music might be arabic, but the Dance is an Israeli Choreography and not an arabic Dance! The Israeli Dances are new and modern Folklore, choreographed by popular Israeli jewish Choreographers, especially by Mizrahi.
  • Mirjam Aaron-Zach
    Mirjam Aaron-Zach9 year agoYes, the state Israel was founded in 1948, but in this country/area there are living Jews since thousands of years and they have an orientalic culture too, not only the arabs and the Jews dance all over the whole world. But the Debka-Dance don't belong only to the arabs; the Jews - especially the Mizrahi - dance it too!
  • Mirjam Aaron-Zach
    Mirjam Aaron-Zach9 year agoThats absolutely Bullshit! But we are not here for discuss about political topics! I am a Dancer and the leader of a Dancegroup to share and have fun by dancing and listening to wonderful Jewish Songs and other music from countries around the mediterran Sea! Mirjam
  • Mirjam Aaron-Zach
    Mirjam Aaron-Zach9 year agoYes, of course, in Israel and around the whole world there are Dancers, which like to dance the beautiful Debkas out of Israel made by Israeli (Jewish) Choreographers! There exist a lot of them! And yes, of course, Israel is a Country in the Middle East, with an ancient oriental culture! Please read the Holy Bible! Mirjam - Leader of the Israeli-Dancegroup Hage'ulah
  • Mirjam Aaron-Zach
    Mirjam Aaron-Zach9 year agoWhy it's awful? And we aren't dressed like Gypsies, you foolish Guy! Please stop posting such hatefully comments! Our audience always enjoy our dances and we love to entertain them! Mirjam
  • Mirjam Aaron-Zach
    Mirjam Aaron-Zach9 year agoIt's an Israeli Dance called "Debka Oud", choreographed by an Israeli Choreographer to an arabic music-piece! By the way Israel is an ancient oriental country described in the Holy Bible and today there are living all kinds of Jews, which are returned back out from the Diaspora....Jews form Irak, Turkey, Marokko, Algerien, Yemen, India, Europe and USA and the Sabres born in the young state of Israel founded (re-founded) in 1948.....Mirjam
  • Mirjam Aaron-Zach
    Mirjam Aaron-Zach10 year agono, sorry; but take a look to Orit Maftsiv an Israeli Bellydancer. She is very good! Mirjam
  • Mirjam Aaron-Zach
    Mirjam Aaron-Zach10 year agoPlease don't discuss here Political Topics! We are Dancers and enjoy to dance Dances from all over the world, especially from countries around the Mediterran Sea, from Israel, Greece, Turkey a.o. We don't made politicy! Mirjam - Hageulah
  • Mirjam Aaron-Zach
    Mirjam Aaron-Zach10 year agoThe Israeli Choreographer don't change the name; this music-piece is called "Debka Oud". But the steps, figures and movements=the Dance is made by an Israeli Choreographer named Moshe Eskayo. Arabs and Jews are Brothers because of their Tribe-Father Abraham
  • Mirjam Aaron-Zach
    Mirjam Aaron-Zach10 year agoThe Jews live in this region called Kanaan, Israel, Judäa, Palaestina for more than 3000 years. There don't exist Palästina and Palaestinians since Israel was founded in 1948. This Region belongs a long time to the Osman Empire and at least under the British Rule. Palaestinians are Arabs. The Jews are origin Mizrahi like the Arabs, before distroying into the Diaspora.
  • Mirjam Aaron-Zach
    Mirjam Aaron-Zach10 year agoit isn't a Gypsy Dance! The music is arabic, but the Dance is an Israeli Choreography.
  • Mirjam Aaron-Zach
    Mirjam Aaron-Zach10 year agoeverybody is free to dance to the music he like to do; and the choreography to this music is an Israeli Debka. We are glad, if Palaestinians, Arabs or Dancers from countries all over the world like to dance with us together the wonderful Israeli Dances!
  • Mirjam Aaron-Zach

  • yoube
    yoube11 year agoJewish contributions to culture, science, medicine and art are immense. Look at all the great Jewish musicians & composers - Gershwin, Jacques Offenbach, Irving Berlin, Richard Rodgers, Heifetz, Isaac Stern, Vladimir Horowitz, Leonard Bernstein, Yitzchak Perlman, Benny Goodman, Beverly Sills, Rudolf Serkin, Emanuel Ax, and more. Even though Jews are only 0.2% of the world's population, 162 Jews won Nobel prizes. Many were for medical advances which save lives throughout the world every day.
  • groundcover
    groundcover11 year agohow about a little bit of history brushing? Jews have lived in Arab lands even before they were Arabs.Over a million Jews in Israel have come from Arab lands in 1948 (Yes, they are REFUGEES from ARAB LANDS!!) bringing the Arab culture with them,
  • Mirjam Aaron-Zach
    Mirjam Aaron-Zach11 year agoyes, of course...Jews and Arabs are Brothers, because of their Grandfather Abraham and his two sons Ismael and Issak...therefore make Peace and Friendship and don't struggle about peanuts !

  • Mirjam Aaron-Zach
    Mirjam Aaron-Zach11 year agoNonsens ! Debka/Dabke-Dances are not only known in arabic communities, and it doesn' t matter about the roots of a Dance ! We dance for joy and Peace. Music and Dances don' t belong to anyone, it's for all, who love to hear and dance to it ! This Dance is an origin Israeli Dance...keep cool Superman !
  • rencrow
    rencrow11 year agoIt seems somewhat different from the usual arab debka that ive seen before
  • Mirjam Aaron-Zach
    Mirjam Aaron-Zach11 year agoWir machen keine Politik, wir singen und tanzen. Wenn schon die Historie bemüht wird, dann bitte richtig ! Vertrieben wurden die Juden und aufgenommen haben sie leider auch nur bedingt und unter Repressalien die Engländer in "Palästina", das unter ihrer Herrschaft stand. Leider schaffen es die Araber/Palästinenser nicht, einen Staat oder gar eine Demokratie mit Infrastruktur zu errichten. Sie verbreiten nur Terror und Zerstörung ! Mirjam
  • Mirjam Aaron-Zach
    Mirjam Aaron-Zach11 year agoNonsens ! Wir "bombadieren" nichts und niemanden! In Israel fliegen allerdings täglich von Palästinensern abgeschossene Kassam-Raketen z.B. auf Sderot !
  • Mirjam Aaron-Zach
    Mirjam Aaron-Zach11 year agodas ist "unsere" Kultur....aber Berlin ist multi-kulti, und jederman und jedefrau hat die Freiheit, nach der Musik und die Tänze zu tanzen, die er/sie schön findet. Die ethnische oder religiöse Zugehörigkeit spielt dabei keine Rolle. Let's dance together for a better world ! Tanz der Kulturen am 15. 9. 2007 in Berlin-Kreuzberg !
  • Ben Britton
    Ben Britton11 year agoSecondly, Jews have been living in Arab lands for millenia, the Qur'an mentions Jews in Medinah during the time of the prophet. So, Jews and Arabs, as a semetic people have shared cultures. Yes, hummus is Arabic, but it (along with kebabs, shwarma) have roots even before the Arab conquests. I take NOTHING from the Arabs and their wonderful culture, but it is a shared culture with ur semetic cousins.
  • Ben Britton
    Ben Britton11 year ago"Hebrew and Arabic words that are the same in Hebrew and Arabic (yom, arba, beyt) all come from Aramaic. So, it's not Hebrew" There are HUNDREDS if not more words common to both Hebrew and Arabic, they are from the same semetic family.
  • Mirjam Aaron-Zach
    Mirjam Aaron-Zach11 year agoI am a Dancer, Teacher, Dancegroup-Leader and my Members dance in their leisure time just for fun. We live in Germany. Our Dance-Clothes are fantasy for enjoing our public. We don't make politic or science, just dancing to connect people with different ethnic roots and enjoy the merry dances and the beautiful music.

  • Aurora's Harbinger
    Aurora's Harbinger11 year agoThe choreographer of this dance is Moshe Eskayo, an Israeli. He used to lead dance sessions in New York and has choreographed many Israeli dances, among which other debkas. Israeli dance is influenced by the dance Eskayo is particularly good at incorporating Arabic and Yemenite elements of dance into his choreography. His are among the most interesting, intricate and beautiful Israeli dances that I know of.
  • Mirjam Aaron-Zach
    Mirjam Aaron-Zach11 year agoThe Jews have a very old and rich Culture: Religion, Songs, Music, Dances, Food...This Folk exist since a very long Time in the Holy Land. You can read it in the Torah/Holy Bible - even the Moslems write it in their Koran. The Romans gave this Land the new name "Palaestina"! The wonderful Hebrew Songs of the Jews are unique and so are their Israeli Dances. Please stop posting such stupid and hostile Comments! Mirjam Hageulah
  • Mirjam Aaron-Zach
    Mirjam Aaron-Zach11 year agoYes, there is an Israely Bellydancer ! Take a look to Orit Maftsiv or to the YouTube-User: wahashtini Mirjam
  • Mirjam Aaron-Zach
    Mirjam Aaron-Zach11 year agoYes there is Israeli Bellydance too - take a look ! Notice: Mizrahi Jews are Jews from the Orient: Yemen, Iraq, Marokko, Tunesia, Turkey...To be Jewish is more than a Religion. Israelis dance Hora, Debka, Bellady.... Mirjam
  • Ben Britton
    Ben Britton11 year agothey didnt steal some culture ( i wont even get into the land part). Israel is a middle eastern country, and Jews are semites and at least half of Israelis are from Arab countries. Don't you think its part of their own culture too?
  • Mirjam Aaron-Zach
    Mirjam Aaron-Zach11 year agoThe Hebrews/Jews never have stolen Land. Israel is the Holy Land, where they have lived since more than 3000 years. It doesn't matter if Debka is an Arabic Word. Israel is a Country at the Mediterran Sea, where the Mizrahi Jews keep up their ancient Culture. Music and Dances don't belong only to one people. Everybody are free to sing and dance to the Music, who touch his Soul and make the movements, that express his Feelings! We are Dancers not Politicians. Mirjam
  • Mirjam Aaron-Zach
    Mirjam Aaron-Zach11 year agoYes, this is an Israeli Dance made by the Israeli Choreographer Benzi Tiram, who made it to an Oriental Melody. Israel exist since 4000 Years - Folk, Religion, Land, People.... you can read it in the Holy Bible / Torah, when the Holy Lord choose Jakov.... Mirjam
