It’s Chico time for the ZF

    Uri Geller and Vanessa Feltz will be among the celebrities at the Zionist Federation’s gala concert for Israel’s 65th birthday in April.

    But the bill also includes a more unusual guest, Jahloul “Chico” Bouchiki, a co-founder of the Gypsy Kings, famed for that staple of restaurant muzak, Bamboleo.

    A UN peace envoy, he entertained Shimon Peres and Yasir Arafat on the first anniversary of the Oslo peace accords.

    His work for reconciliation comes despite a tragic episode in his family. His elder brother Ahmed, a waiter in Norway, was assassinated by Mossad agents in 1973 after they mistook him for one of the Black September terrorists involved in the Munich Olympic massacre.
