This week at Latma – the Hebrew-language media satire website I edit, we decided to do something new. We produced a clip in English. There we feature the Turkish-Hamas “love boat” captain, crew and passengers in a musical explanation of how they con the world.


We think this is an important Israeli contribution to the discussion of recent events and we hope you distribute it far and wide.


All the best,



update 1:
Welcome to all the listeners from the Rick Santorum show this morning. I hope you enjoy!


update 2:
Here’s the entire Tribal Update program for this week for your viewing pleasure.



update 3:
Latma is the initiative of the Center for Security Policy‘s Middle East media project that I run in my capacity as the CSP’s senior fellow for Middle Eastern Affairs. Our work is financed completely from donations by private citizens. If you are interested in supporting our work, please contact the CSP here. The mailing address is:

    I love it.
    We at bluestarpr.org are thinking of similar video ideas for imaginary flotillas:
    Israeli flotilla to Gaza for aid to Gilad Shalit
    Kurdish flotilla to Turkey for aid to Kurds
    Bahai flotilla to Iran for aid to Bahais there

  • Marcel 06/03/2010 at 18:57

    Another home run and good timing I might add !
    It’s an opportunity not to waste for us to use YouTube to get this out to as many eyes and ears as possible.
    Fighting back is our God given responsibility and this is one good kick in the backside of the sunk Gaza Flotilla.
    It’s so easy to deliver it anywhere even in the heart of SaudijihadArabia.

  • Gary 06/03/2010 at 19:44

    Awesome video Caroline. If you don’t mind I’m going to spread this to as many people as I can.

  • Mendy Hecht 06/03/2010 at 20:35

    Awesome job! Who needs the clowns (sorry) at the Foreign Ministry when Israel has you people? The best piece of PR work in Israel’s favor so far, by far .

  • JoeinLA 06/03/2010 at 20:51

    That was great!
    You should take the act on the road – maybe to Istanbul? I know the “Mavi Marmara” is looking for passengers.

    Please keep using your talent and satire to speak up for Israel.

    This is an absolutely terrific political satire brimming with talent. Thank you Caroline for sharing your brilliance and for assembling such a talented crew:) Be Hatzlachah Rabah!!!

  • Susan 06/04/2010 at 0:40

    I wanted to be the first to congratulate you on “We Con the World!” It is fabulous, funny, well written and performed and, I think, very effective.
    I was thinking that it might be fun to have your team give Hebrew lessons….if you ever run out of material for shows, that is!
    Thank you Caroline Glick!

    Wonderfull! Humour does what nothing else can.

  • Larry Snider 06/04/2010 at 1:23

    You know Caroline,
    I’m a liberal Jew from the US who works pretty hard to represent both sides to a constituency largely but not exclusively made up of liberals from many faiths. I think I have a pretty good sense of humor. But given nine people died and many Israelis as well as Palestinians were wounded I have trouble finding this satire funny. But the world is full of many things. The problem is, while I know you are right not to take it all so ominously serious, if I showed this to any of my friends they’d consider it appalling and point to it as one more reason to think of Israel NEGATIVELY!
    Thought you might want to consider this a bit…

  • beniyyar 06/04/2010 at 2:27

    The Israeli Foriegn Ministry should be singing backup for these guys, since it was their deliberate plan to help embarrass Israel’s government diplomatically. There can be no other explanation as to why the Foreign Ministry opposed the Israel public relations effort immediately following the flotilla being commandeered.

  • J. Jensen 06/04/2010 at 3:25

    I just loved teh clip. Humor helps a lot to get over my anger caused by the hypocricy of the press and comments i have read in the press and seen on TV in Germany (where I live) and in online media in Denmark (my home land).

    Caroline, Shalom
    Excellent work and many thanks to you and the entire “crew” of Latma. While reposting this to my blog, I was already receiving e-mails from across the “Great Pond” to make sure this would be appearing. Bracha vHatzlacha for all your endeavors in defense of the Jewish People and our home.

  • Remi 06/04/2010 at 4:29

    Shalom from Holland. This video was great!
    I am so incredibly proud of ‘tiny’ Israel.
    And I am grateful to live in these times to support Israel.
    Please please please stay strong and courageous like the heroes of old from your ancient book.
    Because if Israel gives in we are all doomed.

    Brilliant parody! Kudos to all at Latma – in light of the outrageous atrocities against Israel this past week, fighting back with dark humor is very effective.

  • Kay Andre 06/04/2010 at 6:48

    This is wonderful Caroline and all you others of the crew. This was excactly what i needen now, giving me a big laughter in the fight keeps me continue fighting for Israel and your people. Thank you. I added it to my facebook-site.

  • AlinskyRules 06/04/2010 at 6:58

    Great job, Caroline & everyone else at Latma. G-d bless Israel!
    Larry Snider – Your problem is that you’re a liberal with a “constituency largely but not exclusively made up of liberals”. Your “constituency” does not need any excuse to “think of Israel NEGATIVELY!” Perhaps reconsidering your constituency is in order.

  • Marcel 06/04/2010 at 7:02

    After reading Larry I’m a liberal Jew from the US Snider’s comment on the much needed video my conclusion has only been strengthened.
    Like Esau of old these liberal Jew with their mental disorder have sold their brithright for a nightstand pot full of lies and you know what else.
    They are Jews in Name Only, JINO’s as they easily morph into every other form of vile anti-Israel blob.
    Don;t let the JINO’S restrain you from standing strong for Zion.

  • Chrissie 06/04/2010 at 7:05

    I LOVE this Caroline!! GREAT voices too. I posted it at my blog this morning and also at my page at Facebook.
    This video has me filled with even more love for Israel then I had before if that was possible. God protect all of you and Israel.

  • Anonymous 06/04/2010 at 7:16

    As I mentioned to you, when I finally got to meet a few months ago (at a funeral) I am a big fan, and supporter of your insightfulness, knowledge and gumption. This video is incredible!!!!! Keep up the awesome work of stating our case.

    Your video is insanely creative. I can’t help wondering at the perfection you achieved: the music is faithful to the original and the visuals and the lyrics are funny as hell. Spoofs aren’t easy, takes skill not to go over the top ๐Ÿ™‚ Thousands and probably millions of people will watch this little gem in days to come, and it will do Israel a lot more good than any positive coverage it managed to get in the global press.

    Absolutely brilliant. I think it is going viral and it ought to.
    To Larry Snider and the likes, YOU are the problem. Self-hating Jews, Liberal Jews, Jews who have been contaminated by the “ism” of the day…wake up. By trying to be oh-so-balanced, you are encouraging and defending enemies of the Jewish people whose single goal is to kill us all, you included. They have no desire to spare you just because you think you are so virtuous. They will use you then destroy you. It is the Jews who have remained true to Judaism throughout history who have saved the Jewish people from extinction. It is the Jews like you who have tried to appease and blend in the tyranny of the day who embolden and encourage those who wish to destroy us.

  • Geert ter Horst 06/04/2010 at 10:02

    Please read Victor Davis Hanson’s “The Art of Seaborne Humiliation” in the National Review Online, at: http://article.nationalreview.com/print/?q=OTE4MDBlMjk0ZTRhOTFlYzgyOTgyMjZjOTllZjEwYWQ= Hanson’s piece carefully analysis the inverted morality that is behind the flotilla- and other attacks on Israel, and gives suggestions how to deal with this fact.

  • Martin 06/04/2010 at 10:46

    Dear Caroline,
    from time to time I read Your articles in JP. Sometimes I agree, sometimes it seems to me too hard and I disagree… thats life.
    In any case, what I met on YouTube, “Flotilla Choir presents: We Con the World” is simply PERFECT and right to the target, by so humorous way!
    Thanks much!

    Amazing.Thank you for making me laugh when the unfolding events make me think I’m in living in Poland or Germany in the 1930’s. Just as there was no reason then, so too now. The Jews stand alone, let’s just hope our leaders can do what they’re suppossed and lead.

  • Mal 06/04/2010 at 11:43

    Firstly Larry Snider you need to find some new friends as the PC ones you have will be the first to turn on you when the chips are down.

  • bob 06/04/2010 at 12:31

    This has gone viral… and it is stunningly brilliant in concept and execution. The plays off the original are dead-on. Congrats for delivering the truth in such a witty way.

  • Douglas 06/04/2010 at 12:34

    Ridicule is just what is needed here. The world’s reaction has been insane on this so actual, reasonable argument is impossible. And what is there to debate? A country has the right to protect its boarders. The thing that I have only heard scant information about is that Egypt is somehow in on this blockade too because they have an interest in keeping weapons from getting into Gaza.
    I don’t hear those condemning Israel condemning Egypt.

  • Chava 06/04/2010 at 12:54

    So proud!! But sad that no one respects Bibi when he speaks up but a satirical commentary video goes viral and gets the job done!

    I think this video was hilarious, but the more i listen to it i makes me feel sad, sad how the world is treating you jews. All the support from Sweden!

  • Rich 06/04/2010 at 13:47

    Thanks, this gave me a much needed smile, being both humorous and in all probability more accurate than the reporting and comment in the mainstream media.
    Depressingly though (Or amusingly, depending on ones propensity to mischief-making), it would cause outrage amongst the liberals in the UK where the default position is to blame Israel for any problem at all in the middle east.

    Larry Snider is the perfect example of how liberalism betrays Jewish values and temporises with our enemies.
    mossadassasin is the perfect example how the anti-Semites manage to compliment us. I’d be appalled if he didn’t call Caroline an extreme Zionist. I expect he’s voting for Larry Snider; He’d be a fool not to.

  • Marco 06/04/2010 at 17:50

    Hey, I’m sorry for my english, but I would like to give me contribution to this discussion. I’m an italian Jew and I don’t think this is the best way of doing humour on a tragedy like that one happened on that boat. Of course I think that it was a trap for IDF, and maybe they chose the “minor” evil, but video like these make Goym people angrier towards Israel and towards Sionism. I apologize for my language, but I hope you people give me an answer.

    I’m sorry Larry, I don’t want to be cruel, but the first thing you & your liberal Jewish friends should be ashamed of is that you would vote for someone like Obama! Especially with all the evidence visible and out of his mouth just where he stood! He is dividing & tearing us/US to shreds and and doing all he can to destroy Israel….Ps83 right along side the rest of the enemies! People there are dying EVERY day and fear for their lives every moment. A Flotilla from HELL with the moon god as it’s pilot and if the Palestinians/occupiers are so deprived why did they refuse the aide?

  • Anonymous 06/04/2010 at 23:53

    The “choir’s” humor conveys a poignant message regarding the world’s blindness to the truth of Israel’s plight as well as the plague consuming Western nations: regarding foes as friends who are focused upon annihilation.
    Thank you for the levity that helps alleviate the pain of truth.
    Keep up your brilliant work.

    In this modern age of videos, the ‘con the world’ video is an excellent way to present the truth to the world – thank you !!!
    Any person who does not believe that Israel is the ‘good guy’ in this conflict has been completely brainwashed … or simply hates Jews.

    Brilliant parody/satire–I passed it on to many across the USA. My only suggestion for editing, if any edits are done on any future “reissue” is to include a few people in the background wearing “Women in Black,” “Free Gaza,” “Code Pink” and “Woodstock” T-Shirts, together with a few more wearing “Pentagon Bomber Bill Ayers” T-Shirts. There’s no reason not to include them in this fitting tribute.

    I even send it to a pali friend with the sugestion that palestinians should do their own version depicting IDF soldiers chanting : ” We are the most moral army in the world…; We are the Best. We are even better than the swiss red cross “.

    Way to go! Humor, sarcasm and a subtext of buoyancy constitute weapons which are both non-lethal and deadly to people who follow the dictate of Noted Humanitarian Khomenei that there is no room in Islam for humor.
    Now if the team could do the same sort of skewering by humor on all the useful idiots of the American and Western European self-anointed intellectual and political elites, the results might be most edifying. Particularly if the targets scream with wounded dignity.

  • Linda/ Fl,USA 06/05/2010 at 22:53

It baffles me that the Israeli government is lagging behind in this altogether. Caroline, I follow your articles and your logical thinking all the time. This is well done. Humor was not the intent here, only to get the facts across in a way that the world will stop and listen. Looking forward to a follow up video, really soon. We need it so!

    It is hard to say what is good and what is bad.
    Anti-Semites will hate you regardless of what you will or will not do. So, I do not worry about upsetting those because they got upset the moment you and I got born.
    Other people, decent kind, will become your friends or at least will try to take more critical look.
    In any event, I believe, this kind of stuff must be coming and coming. Pen is mightier than a sword.

  • N/A 06/06/2010 at 3:11

    As an Arab I often get flack for defending Israel’s right to defend itself against hostile neighbors. I think that Israel is the rightful home of the Jewish people and they have every right to defend themselves. However, I think that Palestinians also have rights and they are suffering greatly, and a majority of the blame for this rests squarely on Hamas’ shoulders. This “satirical” video is insensitive and plays right into the hands of groups like Hamas and other anti-semetic people who are always quick to demonize Israel and blame them for all the problems in the region.

    You are brilliant. I believe you have done more with this song for Israel’s just and valiant cause than ten grim-faced spokesmen could do!
    The song (and your youthful faces) are ever in my thoughts. I have rarely been so deeply moved. The video is absolutely hilarious – but it is also full of pathos. Keep strong and very courageous! From my safe haven in a sleepy part of the United Kingdom I salute you!

    A “traditional” Jewish response to anti-Jewish intolerance: humor. Well done! And what makes me even happier is that the enemies have a real Jewish army to complain about defending Jewish lives, not like 70 years ago. You are right, Israel. Keep up the self-defense!

    “Due to a misunderstanding on our part, earlier (Friday) we inadvertently issued a video link that had been sent for our perusal,” according to a statement from Israel’s Government Press Office, which distributed the link to media outlets.
    “It was not intended for general release,” the statement said. “The contents of the video in no way represent the official policy of either the Government Press Office or of the State of Israel.”
    How is it that so many weak,defeatist,cowardly,quisling apologists manage to be working for the Israeli government at a time like this ?
    Israel has a solution to the Gaza Blockade Runners ,something they failed to do in January of 2009.
    DEFEAT Hamas ,re-take Gaza and the IDF can be waiting at the Gaza port for all aid ships.
    Eventually Israel will have to neutralize the Gaza threat, better now than later.

    Great job Latma !! The truth must be disseminated, what better way than to attract with parody. I’ve posted “We Con” on my website and sent it to all of my contacts, which includes Tea Party contacts on a national level here in the U.S. The Tea Party and Sarah Palin are staunch supporters of Israel.
    I don’t understand Liberal American Jews, as someone stated above, all of the information on Obamas anti-Semitism was available prior to the election. I can only assume that Liberal Jews are simply craven cowards.

    “But given nine people died and many Israelis as well as Palestinians were wounded I have trouble finding this satire funny.”
    Sheesh. We can’t use rockets or bombs to defend ourselves (because that’s “disproportionate”); We can’t use targetted assassinations to defend ourselves (because that violates other nations’ sovereignty); and now you tell us we can’t even use ridicule. Because that’s insensitive or something.
    Give me a break with your shaming language.
    Is there anything (besides appeasement and surrender) that the Israelis (and by extension the entire Jewish people) can do do defend ourselves which would meet with your approval?
    Somehow I doubt it. Because at bottom, it’s pretty obvious that most of Israel’s detractors believe that Israel has no right to defend herself and no right to exist.

  • Daniele 06/06/2010 at 11:44

    Fabulous video because it’s so true! The only area people can bring up really is that the ship was boarded in international waters, but the terrorists made their intent known which was breaking the blockade. http://worldradio.ch/wrs/news/switzerland/does-israel-have-the-right-to-board-ships-in-inter.shtml?19343
    Of course we all know that they had ample warning and ability to bring aid in according to the law and refused.

    Humor can be a lethal weapon. Here in France, where I’m surrounded by peaceful travelers taking to the streets and shouting “Death to the Jews”, and by biased media, this video made me feel less alone.

  • Bill 06/07/2010 at 15:14

    The comments show the collective delusion of the Jewish people. The msm in America was doing a good job in covering up. The story was already dying but you had to do something dumb like this. You are helping to build hatred for Israel and Jews throughout the world.

    CG, you are one of my favorite writers — who knew you could sing as well.

    I apologise for the partially duplicated comment; I edited my original remarks to clarify them after noticing a commenter who appeared to feel this was in bad taste. It isn’t. Exposing propaganda is a vital function of comedy. If I ever die in similar circumstances, I hope someone will mock the real culprits as ably as you did here. You ably skewered them; I found myself unable to laugh only because so many idiots still accept their con as real. I feel as though I’m living in the 1930s.

  • TimT 06/08/2010 at 3:30

    As a Turk who considers himself a friend of Israel I found this video to be tasteless. Ultimately it will only serve to stoke hatred, animosity etc between Turks and Jews – and if that is what you want then fine but if not then why do it?

    Might you get this published somewhere other than YouTube? YouTube is blocked in Turkey (my location). I got to the site through a proxy and, with just a little trouble, found the video, but not everyone wants to bother with that. If they could just get straight to it with one click, more people here would see it.
    FYI most of the secular Turks I live and work amongst take a balanced view of this incident and are annoyed with the IHH and the government, which they think encouraged the flotilla’s sailing for reasons of its own, for dragging Turkey into this confrontation with Israel.
    If YouTube hadn’t already been blocked by a secular minded court for a video insulting Ataturk, I’m sure the Islamist government would somehow get it blocked for your video.

    I support the right of any country to protect her citizens..
    And I support the right of israel to prevent arms from entering gaza.

When you are on other shows, make sure they play it and remind them that Gilad Shalit is still a hostage with no humanatarian visits ever allowed in 4 years.

  • Betzalel 06/08/2010 at 23:41

    I agree with Sarah, who posted before me. At first when this video came out, I thought it would make Israel look bad, being insensitive to the dead.
    But now thinking about it a little more and seeing the response the video is getting, I have come to the conclusion that truth is the best weapon Israel has in the media war. And satire is the best way to convey the truth. And we Jews are the best in the world at satire.
    Keep up the great work.

  • Jackson Tiilmans 06/09/2010 at 2:41

    I am shocked by the positive reactions to your video. You should be ashamed of yourself. Are you so brainwashed that your government and armed forces can do no wrong in your eyes or are you a paid propagandist? You certainly have now lost any credibility as a journalist. Do you care only for the people of Israel and no others.

    Comment on Criticism of This Video as Insensitive or Racist or Any Similar Theme —
    “We Are The World” has been parodied again and again since it was released in the 1980s. Some of the more notable parodies came from Saturday Night Live, both recently and in the 1990s, Weird Al Yankovic, and the “In Living Color” crew. There are countless others out there. The themes of the parodies range from awareness of music file sharing to finding jobs for unemployed celebrities.
    Then there are the countless parodies of the song’s co-author, Michael Jackson.
    Singling out “We Con the World” and labeling it as insensitive to a famine in the 1980s just doesn’t fly.

    Awesome video. Brilliant work and the message is spot on. One thing I’ve notices on youtube is the Jew haters are using this video for their continued hate agenda. Some have even chopped up the video and inserted non-sense clips to retort the various phrase. One way to combat this would be to issue copyright infringement notices (aka DCMA take down notice) to youtube. Deny the haters the ability to use this incredibly creative work against k’lal yisroel.

    I’ve emailed links of your video to my conservative friends both Jewish and Gentile. I’ve watched it about half a dozen times. You are dead on about CNN being a prime consumer of the PLO/Hamas propaganda and dead on about there being no desire for facts especially from the Left side of America.
    The Left in America has still not put the pieces together as far as Hamas and Alcaida and maybe never will. Hopefully those of us who think and are aware of what is going on will work to save America and Israel from Islamic terrorists.

    My son was very disappointed today when I told him I would show him the video but YOUTUBE has removed it. I heard an interviewer ask Lenny Solomon (AKA Schlock Rock) if it is legally problematic to record famous rock tunes with his Jewish themes. He responded that it was legal under the criteria of “Legal Parody”. If this is true, “We Con the World” could only be a copy right violation if it is TRUE. If it’s a parody, no problem. What is illegal is the kind of usage done by Harrison when he wrote My Sweet Lord using the tune from He’s So Fine. Either way, I WANT “We Con the World” back on the internet. It is a classic!!!

    Waaaah! Your video isn’t available anymore through YouTube — they’ve pulled it everywhere. Now all you get when you go there is this: “This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Warner/ Chappell Music, Inc.” It’s more likely because so many people were getting the truth from it! Anything you can do?

  • Anonymous 06/11/2010 at 23:22

    I see that you’ve taken down the video due to copyright claims. At least in the United States, parody is NOT a violation of copyright. In particular, there’s a case about the song “Pretty Woman” that was parodied in a rap, and the court held it was not an infringement…the law is readily available on google. There are many cases on this. You might want to consult a lawyer because the video was quite powerful.

    I don’t know if Time Warner wants to silence you or make a killing on your labor because their so-called “intellectual property” died over two decades ago.
    Either way, both people, and conglomerates, should be careful what they wish for, because they might get it. Time-Warner, by greasing palms of the right government officials over several decades, has become one of the largest media companies on the planet. But if their customers get the impression that they are trying to stifle free speech, and retaliate with a worldwide boycott, how long would it take for Time-Warner to become one of the smallest?

    btw, outrageous that they took it down for “copyright” reasons. We all know why they took it down.

    This British Christian loved it. Have no idea how many times I have viewed it. You’ve hit the nail on the head as we say here. Brilliant, and I have forwarded it to friends.

    Very enjoyable with great lyrics don’t think it will be a Turkish Delight though.! Keep up the good work.
    A big hit here in the UK

    The home loans are essential for guys, which want to start their organization. As a fact, it is not really hard to get a college loan.
