Long time readers of yesterday’s papers know that JewishPress.com was instrumental in bringing the Rolling Stones to Israel, 2000 light years from home.

Our Rolling Stones Purim spoof was hot stuff and it was just like the hand of fate flipped a switch and suddenly the Rolling Stones are in another land.

Now time waits for no one, even the Rolling Stones when it comes to when the Shavuot holiday ends. But now it looks like time is on my side as the Rolling Stones have delayed the start of their performance to 9:15PM in little Tel (&) Aviv to allow religious fans to get to the concert. We love you!

Who says you can’t always get what you want?

  7. Don’t you love these guys

  8. Sorry, Chris. Israel gets the megawatt talent while you and your ilk are stuck with Roger Waters.

  9. The Stones rule! And good for them for not caving into the anti-Semitism of people like Roger Waters of Stink Floyd!

  10. Hats off to Mick & The Stones!!!!!

  11. The Stones just want to rock out. The more the merrier.

  29. Eran Spiro says:

    They are the coolest band alive !

  30. That's what you do when you're a mensh. I'm impressed

  31. "2000 Lights Years From Home," the Stones are just "Waiting On A Friend". "

    We Love You" "It's Only Rock and Roll" so "Lets Spend The Night Together" in Tel Aviv!!! "

    Hold OnTo Your Hat"

    BDS "Can't Get No Satisfaction" "In Another Land" of Israel!!!

  32. Alan Kardon says:

    Yes we get "SATISFACTION". Thank you Stones. You are a class act.

  33. Let them sing: "We want stones to build the Third Temple."

  34. Jan Colman says:

    How fabulous. Bravo. that will show the hateful Roger Waters ex of Pink Floyd that good people aren't intimidated by hatred…

  35. Eran I couldn't disagree with you more!

  36. Judith Dowla says:

    You don't always get what you want; you get what you need. The Rolling Stones will be delivering exactly what Israel needs very soon. Maybe Palestine will invite them over for a concert in the very near or far future. Abbas and associates need to get up and boogie to some music, shake it on up and out. Too caught in their own ruts. Nothing like music to empty the negative energy blocks out of the human body. It works, believe you me.

  37. Judith! When the stones from the Dome starts rolling down, the palestines should try at last try to sing with the rolling stones. But that might be too late, instead of coming to the concert.

  38. It is not good that palestines get Iranian salary to throw (rolling) stones at jews who wish to pray at Temple Mount.

  39. The world of rock has presented a strange kind of dilemma for many of us: music we LOVE vs. 1) messages from songs that stand opposed to what we believe in 2) Outragious lifestyles that do NOT foster the raising of our children with positive values. I think y'all know what I mean. The idea that "religious Jews" would look forward to the end of Shavuos in order to rush to a rock concert leaves me with major questions about the depth of their connection to Hashem. Judaism is NOT simply technical details. Hashem requires the heart. THAT being said, I am and have been a rock addict for decades. The Stones have a few songs that I thought were really brilliant, and thoughtful. But, I always had a hesitation about their lifestyles. I must admit-my hat's off to them 1) for coming, despite ALL the opposition, 2) delaying the starting time so that religious Jews could attend. THAT'S class! By the way, Roger Waters have fallen on his head. Very disappointing. Disappointing because he's not interested in a discussion or questions on the issues. But, I haven't heard that David Gilmour or Nick Mason support Waters' positions. Does that appear anywhere? I know they've had disagreements with him over the years. Maybe…
