Kudos to Ari Lesser for the song and his performance and to you, David, for posting it.

That is awesome! Shades of Dylan's "Neighborhood Bully".

Ummm. No.

Not only is this song really tedious, I don't think it helps very much to argue that Israel is no worse than say, Saudi Arabia or North Korea.

The reason not to boycott Israel is that it is defending itself against an attacking force, well funded from outside states (including many on Lesser's boycott list).
