Well, that response is just as coherent as the rest of your posts, Bryan Borich.

If you really want to be a shaman when you grow up, you'll have to work on that clarity issue.

Or if you like light Heavy Metal, try Orphaned Land:

Israel's ORPHANED LAND is probably the only band from this country that has managed to succeed at building up a huge following among Muslims and Arabian people. These fans communicate freely via the bands social networking pages, some of them even proudly bearing ORPHANED LAND tattoos, even though that puts them at huge risk in their home countries! Unfortunately, the ongoing political and military struggles still prevent ORPHANED LAND from playing in the home countries of its Arabian fans and friends.

Casus belly: Hezbollah enraged over dancer's gig with Israeli

Lebanese belly dancer's embrace of Israeli singer on stage in France lands her in hot water back home * Hezbollah issues death warrant * Singer: Appearance was an act of peace.

A Lebanese belly dancer is facing death threats and cannot return to her homeland after embracing an Israeli musician at an international festival in France.

On June 19, Israeli heavy metal band Orphaned Land performed alongside Lebanese belly dancer Johanna Fakhri at the Hellfest music festival in the western French town of Clisson. At the end of their performance, the Lebanese dancer held up her country's flag while Orphaned Land's singer, Kobi Fahri, held up an Israeli flag. The two then hugged and clasped each other's hands.

Israel and Lebanon are technically at war and it is illegal under Lebanese law for any citizen to have public interactions with an Israeli. Media outlets around the world carried the image of Fakhri and Fahri brandishing their national flags, prompting a seething Hezbollah to declare Fakhri a traitor and issue a death warrant for her. The dancer has since been hiding out in France, fearing for her life if she returns to her homeland.

The threats against Fakhri have now spread from Lebanon. Last week, the French Muslim party PMF, which is closely tied to Hezbollah, carried a quote from Hezbollah on its website, declaring Fakhri "a traitor who collaborates with the Zionist enemy."

In response, Fakhri released a statement calling her appearance with Fahri an act of peace.

"I know that politics, religion or other matters, moreover foreign ones, don't hold an important place in a festival, but music is a tool for expression, and has to bring messages, history and legacy," she wrote. "This way, I wanted to take this opportunity so rare in history -- seeing on stage an Israeli group and a Lebanese dancer -- to say that beyond the artistic exchange and our collaboration for the love of art, we were willing to make it a symbol of peace. And these two flags that we held as high as the fist can rise transcend all these years of war and suffering."

Orphaned Land publicist Eitan Levi attributed Hezbollah's rage to the popularity the band enjoys among Arab and Muslim listeners.

Fahri said he hoped the embrace was the first of many peace gestures.

"The past and history are just too bloody and tragic," Fahri said. "And If Johanna and I can live as brother and sister -- even our last names, Fakhri and Fahri, are similar -- as friends and neighbors, then why shouldn't we influence our nations to do the same?"

Fahri said he had spoken to Fakhri and had invited her to Israel. "I hope she will come," he said. "[Musicians] have no enemies. Music has no borders and no army. We will continue to have concerts and sing the language of peace."

You're confusing "mysterious" with "incoherent," Bryan Borich. When you're a little older and literate, you'll understand the point I was trying to make.
