This is a highly varied selection of music, even heavy metal style music, and perhaps for that reason there are many tracks that are not to my taste. But it also means that there were several that I found enjoyable and eye-opening (ear-opening?): tracks 6, 8, 11, and 12.

Well! never heard them because they are relatively modern new tunes from the Arab world. And the track names are only labeled with those of performers, not titles.

Anyway, I find these appealing and worth listening:
S'ayda by Anis Benhallak (track 1);
Blessed for Making Me a Woman by Kimor Oved (track 2);
Zorney by Daramad (track 8);
Ya Mo by Dozan (track 3);
Algano by Al Andalus Ensemble (track 4);
Ilm by Jadid ensemble (track 6); and
Abdelillah by Groupe Mazagan. (track 7)

Why would an Israeli song be included on an "Arabic music" cd??

Is it not enough that these White Europeans stole Palestine from its native people and stole some of the Arabic dishes and call them theirs and now the music too.

This is part of the planned theft by Israel of the culture, history, language and heritage. And this by the way has NOTHING to do with Jews or Judiasim, it is cultural theft masked so the ignorant masses don't see it till it is too late.

I find this offensive.

The "music you've never heard" designation is due to some really novel jazz arrangements & also what sounds like it's trying to be a heavy metal guitar solo played with Middle Eastern instruments. Not bad! CR
