Defend free speech – support Latma

YouTube’s decision to pull Latma’s hit song We Con the World after 3 million viewers shows that Israel’s enemies are afraid of us. Since they cannot refute our points, they are trying to silence us. First they threw ridiculous accusations at Latma that our parody of We are the World was racist. When that didn’t stick and more and more people continued to watch our song, they decided to silence us. 

Obviously this means that we need to redouble our efforts. It also means we’ll have to diversify our posting options to make sure that a call to YouTube won’t suffice to silence us. 
Latma is not a business. We’re a public service, educational initiative funded from tax exempt donations through the Center for Security Policy in Washington where I serve as senior fellow for Middle East affairs.
We could use all the help we can get.
To contribute to our efforts, please click on this link. It takes you to Network for Good’s dedicated page for online contributions to the Center for Security Policy.
To make sure your contribution goes to Latma, in the box marked “designation” please write “Latma.”
Thanks very much. Together we will make sure that the voice of truth is heard.

    I got one question first: how can i support Latma from Norway? I want you to keep going with this and would like to help you doing that.
    Are there any account that i could transfer say 30$ a month, so i can make my bank do this automatically?
    You know Caroline, when they are out of arguments they try with silence. I hope you will continue to put it on this side so i can continue putting it on my Facebook-site, i do that all the time with some of the articles and with the streams from Latma. Noone is going to stop us now,right?
    G-D bless you.

    The Globalist power structure engineers recently met in Spain and Google was there along with amny familiar faces..
    This is much bigger than Google, anything favorable to Israel like the Latma Video is verbotten by the Fourth Reich.
    The globalists are against Israel and Obama was put in power by them and he is doing what they tell him to do…and so is Natanyahu the best puppet Israle ever had. He’s got you Caroline werapped around his littel finger.
    Islam has been crowned the chief religion of the Globalists and Israel is on course for extermination for the ‘good’ of (in)humanity

    Is it okay to direct people to the Wejew site to see We Con The World? Or is there a danger of it being removed from there as well? I think We Con The World is fantastic, and I hope you create a whole series of such songs. Thanks for telling the truth so others can get past the media distortions and THINK.

    So I guess that means that its been taken off my blog, since I posted it from YouTube. What a crock. But I can’t really say I’m that surprised, in fact I was expecting it. Oh well, if you find somebody else to post it with I’ll just edit my post. Better yet, I’ll just put up a new one. Hopefully you’ll find somebody you can upload it to that it will load right and look and sound as good as it did on YouTube.
    By the way, I especially loved the Bob Dylan guy.

    I want to say thank you. I am an American inundated by pseudo journalists that I once thought were innocuous puppets but over the last year watching them become complicent(sp?) in the dismantling of everything I was taught to hold dear I say Brava to you. Staqnd up

    Google does it again and surrenders to fascists, in response to the wave if pro israeli clips on Youtube last week, Turkey decided to block even more of Google’s websites and services. Free speech is a danger to the current Islamic regime in Turkey. I suspect that the current decision to remove “We Con The World” is an effort to please turkey, in this case Turkey will probably unblock the Google services it started blocking last week.
    I’m in touch with people who live in Turkey and hear about they’re fears regarding the direction they’re country is taking. Google does it again and surrenders to Turkey’s Islamic regime just like it did before with China.

    I’ve already sent my complaint to youtube through their advertising link.

  • Mike 06/12/2010 at 19:00

    Thanks Caroline! Just put $50 in. I hope you’re able to raise a gazillion $ and get this video (and hopefully additional super high quality flicks) back on track. Like the Norwegian commenter above, I have been raving, tweeting and all around in love with the smarts and elegance demonstrated in We Con the World video. Thanks for being a light to all of us the World over.

    Isn’t it time for some smart Israeli company to create an alternative to youtube??
    Many people, including myself, would be happy to support it!

  • naomir 06/12/2010 at 22:23

    Shavuah tov. I am not surprised, but furious at the double standard. I will post again and keep passing it around. Faith and courage are what it’s all about. Thank you again Caroline from the heart.

    Somebody emailed me the Flotilla Choir last weekend, and the first time I viewed it–umm–so I watched again. And again. And again. So when I tried to get it a couple days later–it was gone! Couldn’t believe the injustice because you can’t imagine the stuff they let some groups over here get away with. Oh–i guess you can imagine it to judge from the Latma material. So I poked around and found it on We Jew. I’m not Jewish, I’m not an evangelical Christian or of any political persuasion. I just freaking love Latma. It translates very well and is so true.
    So glad the video is still around.
    I’m especially crazy for John Indenial. I live in Washington, DC, and I encounter Mr. Indenial regularly.

  • Ofer 06/12/2010 at 23:58

    Dear Caroline,
    I would like to suggest that if you get into any copyright issues or wish to avoid YouTube copyright “excuses” you can call upon the many composers that support your work and admire Latma. We would love to write great tunes for your wonderful lyrics!
    On a totally different note: something is wrong with the comments section on Latma. The response block is limited to 9 characters only (!) – can someone check on that?
    Thanks so much and do keep up with your admirable work – one day you will be (hopefully!) Israel’s PM and we will all support you!

  • rutimizrachi 06/13/2010 at 3:56

    Thank you, Caroline, for everything you do on behalf of Israel, and especially for Latma TV. I have linked to you in my small protest against YouTube’s (and attendant protestors’) unconscionable behavior here:

  • Laura 06/13/2010 at 7:10

    Hi Caroline, I will make a donation through the Center for Security Policy but echo Kay Andre’s question. I’m in Canada and would really like to be able to set up a monthly donation scheme.
    Maybe you can answer a question that’s been bugging me. Did Noam Jacobsen do Captain Stubbing, Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen AND Bob Dylan?

  • David Eisen 06/13/2010 at 7:23

    Keep up the good work, Caroline. You are inspiring many of us in exile to be strong!

    As the founder of – we would like to inform Galia that WeJew was created to be the alternative to YouTube and is the #1 video source on the Internet for Jewish/Israel videos. There is no doubt that running this video has exposed us to hacking attempts – but we are being diligent in that regard and keeping near 24-hour watch on our site. The greatest threat to Jewish people is having (and displaying) fear of the arab enemy which is waging a brutal media assault on the Jewish nation. We encourage people to link to and embed from our site – which has over 7,000 videos all on Israel and Jewish life – we moderate every single video upload, new member and even comments – so our site is 100% relevant, with not a single anti-Israel remark or video. We applaud Latma’s efforts in this video and others – parody is a form of confidence – we believe it is time for us to stop being on the defensive – and go on the media offensive and control the lingo and agenda which we have deferred to the “palestinians” and the eu/usa/un for decades at our mutual peril. Please feel free to use our site to Israel’s best advantage – my name is Shlomo Wollins and I can be reached at: shlomo{at}wejew{dot}com

    ‘Con the World’ was a brilliant parody. We are passionate UK supporters of Israel and after suffering the grotesque spectacle of world opinion on the flotilla raid, how refreshing to laugh at your brilliant Jewish humour! It could only be done by Israelis, of course: done by any other country would have been insulting. But the fact that you could make light of an event that the world had turned against you says alot for your national character. We believe God too was smiling! Please can we expect a follow-up hit?

    all these comments in support of Latma are wonderful!!
    If you really want to go viral, as well as the funding from these wonderful people here, SET UP a competition for comic videos/parodies worldwide! Why do all the work when there are some very funny talented people dying to show off what they can do, in Israel and elsewhere!
    Give them a space and watch ’em go!
    You have no idea how much comic talent there is out there waiting to be garnered in the service of Israel and taking the piss out of Islamic morons! People are fed up with them and long to vent, and some do it brilliantly!
    Tap into this via facebook, jihadwatch etc.
    yes, the Muslims will hack and copy but so what?!
    You could choose some of the best and publish them on the Latma site. save money, save time and let people contribute to the cause of pro Israel, anti-terorrist comedy!
    Hurrah for Latma!

    To silence this viewpoint is shari’a law. The more we bend to the will of Islam, the more we lose our democracy. Islam is fighting an ideological war; it is against Israel because of land expansionism but mostly because the land belongs to a people who live democratically. They accuse Israel of apartheid, when obviously it isn’t, because Islam is apartheid, and to deflect from themselves is also shari’a.
    If we don’t defend democracy for ourselves and for Israel and other countries, we will all lose it. Remember, Muslims will do the extreme (death) to spread Islam; we have to remember we have a strong opponent, but united, we can win.

  • 06/26/2010 at 15:47

    Our “We Con the World” tees arrived Stateside today. You would think we won the lottery from all the shouting and cheers. Yes, there are Jews in AR. Thanks so much for all your hard work with a talented group of people. Crazy Israelis that you are. LOL

  • Hannah Sealey 07/17/2010 at 12:22

    I am not Jewish, I am a British Christian and I felt it hit the nail on the head. Only Israelis could have made a satire video about that incident. Kol haKavod to you. Brilliant. Shame on YouTube for removing it and trying to silence the truth.
