FAKED PAUL MCCARTNEY INTERVIEW (15)
Anis, September 19, 2008
This Faked Interview also appeared at www.redress.cc/palestine/ahamadeh20080921

Faked Anis: Bonjour, Sir faked Paul.
Faked Paul McCartney: And why bonjour?
Faked Anis: I was thinking of "All you Need is Love" with this French beginning.
FPMC: That's a faked John song.
Faked Anis: Faked George Martin also had a hand in it, right?
FPMC: Well, yes.
Faked Anis: It's an international song.
FPMC: And what do you want to tell me?
Faked Anis: Dunno ... You'll play in Israel this month.
FPMC: Of course I will. In Tel Aviv.
Faked Anis: Despite everything.
FPMC: Despite what?
Faked Anis: The killings, the occupation, the wall, the theft.
FPMC: You're making that up.
Faked Anis: Not really, no.
FPMC: Me and the faked band are really looking forward to this one.
Faked Anis: Oh yeah?
FPMC: Itís the first time I have ever been to Israel.
Faked Anis: I see.
FPMC: I am going to be interested as a tourist.
Faked Anis: A tourist, don't make me laugh.
FPMC: What's wrong with that?
Faked Anis: Will you tour Guantanamo next and play for the wardens?
FPMC: What nonsense.
Faked Anis: Did you play in South Africa back then, too?
FPMC: Hey, music can help people to just calm them down.
Faked Anis: Or they use you as a PR donkey.
FPMC: Why are you being so hostile?
Faked Anis: Me? I'm not being hostile, I'm being sarcastic.
FPMC: I always cite a faked John song: "Give Peace A Chance".
Faked Anis: Do you think faked John would play in Israel right now?
FPMC: Well, I, uuh, sure!
Faked Anis: I don't believe you.
FPMC: I have many friends who support Israel.
Faked Anis: Support Israel? Are you aware of what you're saying?
FPMC: I'm a tourist.
Faked Anis: I wonder what is behind all this.
FPMC: The Beatles had a pretty positive influence on the world.
Faked Anis: Thanks for reminding me.
FPMC: Only regimes that wanted to control their peoples were afraid of us.
Faked Anis: That's why Israel banned you in 1965.
FPMC: It was a bit insulting, the thought we could corrupt the youth.
Faked Anis: Now we're getting closer to the point.
FPMC: I've heard so many great things about Tel Aviv and Israel.
Faked Anis: Oh yeah? You probably read Ilan Pappe's "The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine".
FPMC: No. I just love people, and singing, and love.
Faked Anis: And tourism.
FPMC: Yeah!
Faked Anis: But people told you what Israel does?
FPMC: I was approached by different groups and political bodies who asked me not to come here.
Faked Anis: And?
FPMC: I refused. I do what I think.
Faked Anis: Oh, you also think.
FPMC: Of course. Thinking is so important.
Faked Anis: 150 dollars for standing room, 400 near the stage ...
FPMC: Right.
Faked Anis: You feel flattered because Israel invited you.
FPMC: They are a great people.
Faked Anis: Yeah, thinking is so important.
FPMC: You know what Israel's faked Ambassador to London Ron Prosor told me?
Faked Anis: What?
FPMC: He said it was a great missed opportunity to prevent people like us, who shaped the minds of the generation, to come to Israel and perform.
Faked Anis: Oh!
FPMC: See? They are good.
Faked Anis: What is your tour called, by the way?
FPMC: Friendship first!
Faked Anis: And what is second?
FPMC: You really don't understand.
Faked Anis: If you went on the next Free Gaza boat like faked Joe Fallisi, that would be something!
FPMC: Who is faked Joe Fallisi?
Faked Anis: An Italian opera tenor. He sings for Palestine.
FPMC: What is this Palestine thing you are always talking about?
Faked Anis: It's the land of the native population.
FPMC: I won't play for them.
Faked Anis: Why not?
FPMC: I don't know them.
Faked Anis: Friendship and love, eh?
FPMC: Israel banned me and now they honour me.
Faked Anis: I thought you were a tourist?
FPMC: Well, kind of.
Faked Anis: I really loved to listen to your music.
FPMC: See.
Faked Anis: There still is faked John. I've always liked him more, anyway.
FPMC: I am sure he would play with me in Tel Aviv.
Faked Anis: No, I don't think so. He was more aware.
FPMC: He was for love, like me.
Faked Anis: If you were for love you would be different.
FPMC: Love is so important, you know.
