Que Bonito es Israel

After all the bashing that Israel has taken over the past couple of weeks (some of it deserved, much of it hysterically and gleefully unbalanced), I have to say I was almost moved to tears by this wonderful and wonderfully schlocky video by three Peruvian pop singers celebrating, you guessed it, Israel. I doubt you’ll find a better emotional antidote to Israel hatred anywhere on the web, even if the only word you understand is “Israel.”

Jeffrey Goldberg has more.

This one is for Helen Thomas, George Galloway, Hugo Chavez and others too numerous to mention. Crank up the volume and enjoy.

Update: See anti-Israel conspiracy-mongering (who knew the Zionists had such influence over Peruvian pop music?) and a full translation here.
