Elise Cooper’s Pajamas Media column tells the story behind Caroline Glick’s “We Con the World” video. The video was produced for Glick’s Israel-oriented satirical site Latma with a message for the English-speaking world:
My team and I were very angry for the way Israel was being demonized, and for the way our soldiers were being demonized by the international media, by the UN, and by the Arabs. We were responding to those people who dared to call our naval commandos murderers for defending their country and themselves from a lynch mob. When we saw the international community pile on against Israel, it was so dramatic and overwhelming we decided to produce the song in English.
The video won several million viewers and struck a nerve. It was removed by YouTube, but PJTV has posted it here for your viewing pleasure. Watch it, if you can take the truth in the form of a parody.
The video belies the proposition that there is a humanitarian crisis in Gaza caused by Israel’s blockade. As Israel Defense Minister Ehud Barak pointed out this week, however, there is someone in Gaza — if only one — who urgently needs humanitarian intervention. “There are 1.5 million people living in Gaza and only one of them really needs humanitarian aid,” Barak said. “Only one of them is locked in a tiny room and never sees the light of day, only one of them is not allowed visits and is in uncertain health – his name is Gilad Shalit, and this month four years will have passed since he was kidnapped.”
Barak’s comment highlights the fact that the problem with Gaza is Hamas, and that the ongoing operations seeking to break Israel’s blockade support Hamas and undermine Israel. Hamas is a frankly Islamic terrorist group whose founding goal is the elimination of Israel. It serves at the pleasure of its patrons in Tehran.
Following up on the success of “We Con the World,” Caroline Glick now presents “The Three Terrors.” Ahmedido Domingo (a/k/a Ahmadinejad), Erdogano Pavarotti (a/k/a Erdogan) and Assad Carreras (a/k/a Bashar Assad) explain what all the fuss is about. Hear them out, if you can take the truth in the form of a parody. At her blog, Glick characterizes the video as “[t]he newest installment in Latma’s English language musical crash course in reality perception.”
In her column today, Glick explains how the Mavi Marmara episode presages war. “Indeed,” she writes, “Iran and its allies clearly believe that suicide protests are a vehicle for initiating a full-scale war against Israel on what they view as favorable footing.”
