apologized for sending out a video made by Caroline Glick and her Latma crew that lambasted the flotilla of fools that Israel stopped from reaching Gaza last week. (I ran the video on Friday, but don't worry if you missed it because I will run it again below).
On Friday, the Israeli Government Press Office accidentally e-mailed a YouTube video link to journalists, including journalists from BNO News. The video, created by Latma TV, used music from the 1985-song "We Are the World," which was written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie.
"There comes a time, when we need to make a show, for the world, the Web and CNN," a man - dressed as the captain of a ship - sings as the song begins. "There's no people dying, so the best that we can do is create the greatest bluff of all," the song continues, apparently referring to the people on board the MV Mavi Marmara.
The song goes on, saying they must go on day by day to pretend that there is crisis, hunger and plague in Gaza. "Cause the billion bucks in aid won't buy their basic needs, like some cheese and missiles for the kids."
It took the Israeli Government Press Office almost three hours to retract the e-mail. "[The Israeli Government Press Office] would like to recall the message, "CAroline Glick and the Flotilla Band"," a brief e-mail to journalists said.
About 20 minutes later, Efraim Roseman of the Israeli Government Press Office released a statement with more details. "Earlier today, we inadvertently released a video link that we had received, which was intended for our perusal, not for general release," Roseman wrote. "The contents of the video in no way reflect the official policy of the State of Israel, the Government Press Office or any other government body."
the hate and violence of Hamas is so unlogical. perhaps laughter and music is exactly the right message. apologizing was a bad move
