Yalla ya Nasrallah! (and other interesting YouTube videos)

I'm just going to keep adding interesting videos I come across from YouTube, especially those which pertain to the current conflict. Note that the vast majority of this stuff is in Hebrew, but It's all still worth checking out anyway even if you don't speak the language. Shavuah Tov, Matt

Yalla ya Nasrallah

I just found this new Israeli music video on I'm going to be singing this one for a while. It is hilarious and is subtitled for those of you who are uncomfortable with Hebrew.
This website seems to be the official site of the song and has some fun games where you attack Hisbullah by throwing eggplants and televisions and can box nasrallah, all while listening to different versions of the song. These can all be put on your cell phone, by the way.

Wafa Sultan speaks up

...on Al Jazeera of all places...

Israel bombs targets in Lebanon and Gaza

I just thought this was really cool. They know what they're doing.

Bombing in Tel-Aviv 17-APR-06, Israel-10

Note: This is from APRIL of this year. I just want to show what kind of acts Hamas is pulling off, those against CIVILIAN targets. To my knowledge the closest thing King Falafel has to anything military is a security guard down the streat to prevent these monsters from killing the innocent. (Hebrew) This was one of the two homicide bombings during which I was in Israel and both bombings occurred at the same exact place.

Israel Tourism Video

This is one way to get tourism up...

יצפאן - יחד כל הדרך

I know this is dated, but Yatzpan is hilarious! I usually have little idea what's going on, but even if you don't understand Hebrew just the way they act is hilarious. I would call this the Israeli SNL, except it's actually funny. I think I can identify a lot of the people in it: Hassan Nasrallah, Yassir Arafat, Sheik Yassin, Mahmud Abbas, Ariel Sharon, Shimon Peres, Ehud Barak, The Pope, Queen Elizabeth (who for some reason they lampoon constantly for unknown reasons... maybe that's why the BBC is so blatantly anti-Semitic) Saddam Hussein (as to the people next to him, I feel the guy to his right/our left is someone who looks suspiciously like Muammar al-Khadaffi and the guy on his left/our right could be Ayatollah Ali Khameni. I think I saw Bush there for a second. Wow, I think I got all thirteen. Go me! Do I really know that much about Israeli politics and satire? Here's my guess
standing from left to right: Mahmood Abbas, Muammar al-Khadaffi, Saddam Hussein, the Pope, Queen Elizabeth II, George W. Bush;
sitting from left to right: Hassan Nasrallah, Shimon Peres, Ariel Sharon, Ehud Barak, Yassir Arafat, Ahmed Yassin. Anyone have any corrections for me?

NOTE: looking back at old posts, I realized I've actually seen this sketch on an El Al flight (see this entry: Thoughts on a Long Plane Flight)


uh.... I saw this about a year ago and just found it again on this site. Weird...

IDF - Singing with Israeli troops * 7/28/06

Is this Kabbalat Shabbat? I'm glad that there are ways that the IDF can entertain its soldiers while they're on the front line. It is important to keep one's soldiers in good spirits. Weirdest Kab Shab ever, though.

Shirat HaSticker -- Dag Nachash

Music video of one of the most powerful songs ever, IMHO. Look here for more info about this song. I took a class where the first thing we discussed was this song and I also taught a class on this video.

אלי יצפאן חריף HEBREW ISRAEL

חריף, all this guy wants is some חריף, spicy sauce and, damn it, he wants it spicy, a problem with which I can comisserate. Does the customer remind you of a young Joe Pesci a little?

יצפאן במכולת

Yatzpan in the Makolet (Bodega). Expired and moldy things in a Makolet? {voice of sarcastic disbelief} No... The funny thing is this seems very plausible. This seems very much like some of the Makolet cashiers I have had the pleasure of purchasing from in Israel.

Prayer Service for Gush Katif at the Kotel

From last August on Tisha B'Av 5765 (or around that time), the eve of our exile from Gush Katif and the rest of Gaza.

Mass Prayer at the Western Wall, Part 2

more of the mass prayer rally

Inciting Children

Wow, makes me want to kill Zionists. What the hell is wrong with the Palestinians? They're brainwashing their children to be cold-blooded murderers.

Teaching Palestinian Children to Aspire Death for Allah

poor children. Child Services should take them away from this abuse.

Pallywood: According to Palestinian Sources

Why it's important not to believe everything you see, especially from Arab, BBC, and CNN sources...
In Jenin, The men accidentally tip the funeral bier, dropping the corpse. When they regroup, the corpse climbs back on the bier

Walid Shoebat

The former Palestinian Bomb-Maker-turned anti-terrorism speaker on FoxNews. We at the Columbia/Barnard Koach sponsored him a little while back to speak at Columbia.

actually, for the yatzpan video, you're a bit off with your identifications...
top: koffi annan, khaddafi, saddam, ayatollah, pope, queen, bush
bottom: taliban respresentative, peres, sharon, MUbarak (you were close with ehud barak ;)), arafat and ahmed yassin.
