Video: 'Palestinian' supporters debut terrible new song

Is this supposed to be compared with We Con the World or something?

Let's go to the videotape.

For those of you who do not recognize them, Allahpundit tells us that their name is Coldplay and that some of their 'fans' were disturbed by this video.
I’d be disturbed too. This tune is oddly upbeat given the subject matter, no? If you’re intent on cooking up musical propaganda for a people partially led by Hamas, you should either be thinking ballad or something really, really aggressive. This isn’t “push the Jews into the sea” music; this sounds like the anthem for the next World Cup or something. They should have gotten Coldplay to do it, in fact. Imagine melancholy ol’ Chris Martin plonking those keys, caterwauling for the right of return. Even Bibi wouldn’t be able to hold back the tears. Something for the next album, maybe.
"We con the world," which was done by amateurs (as far as I know) when it comes to the music business, was much, much better done. Heh.

These lyrics are pathetic. But not to worry, I've had a go myself!

Cut out the o-be-sety, it's killing us can't you see.

or how about 'drive them Jews into the sea, it's as easy as 1-2-3'

But for all those shari'ah compliant viewers, the female dancer dancing with her legs open in the beginning of the video has been 'honor killed' to save her family from disgrace. Palestinians are so nice, considering they don't exist...

They are very coy about the other musicians who are on there! I would like to find out who they are and publicise their names. The Jewish community in UK needs to know.

(Sigh!) Are you all too young to remember the '80s? In addition to USA for Africa's "We are the World," there was a plethora of artist collaboratives promoting various causes, including the end to South Africa apartheid. The BDS movement, in attempting to make the liberation of Palestine this decade's fight to end South African apartheid, is drawing upon the upbeat, sometimes dance-infected, hits that introduced the apartheid cause to pop music fans in the West. Look to "Free Nelson Mandela" and "Sun City" (by Artists United Against Apartheid) for precedents.

If the BDSers continue following the South Africa apartheid playbook and can muster a celebrity line-up (doubtful at this point), expect an "I won't play Tel Aviv" to come down the pike.
