A new song is out that is pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel. What makes this song so different than all the propaganda that has come before? The song was written and performed by several internationally known artists and has recieved a Facebook endorsement from the global superstars Coldplay! Why would Coldplay endorse a song that claims Israel is participating in apartheid and equates Palestinian refugees with the Holocaust?
Among the lyrics Glenn found offensive? The reference to 6 million refugees, the same number of Jews killed in the Holocaust. There is also a reference to a 'catastrophe', which would reference Nokhba or the day of catastrophe. Anti-Israeli groups refer to Israel's Independance Day as a day of catastrophe. Glenn's whole response can be seen in the video above.
"Please, please, to anyone with talent, anyone with artistic talent, anyone with musical talent, anyone with video talent, anyone, anyone, is there a -- is there anyone within the sound of my voice in Hollywood, anyone that sees what's being done and will stand and use their talent on the other side? I will stand with anyone. I will stand with anyone. I don't care -- we were having a discussion today of somebody who is -- we're making some announcements next week of some people that are standing with us on this Israel thing and I think it was Stu that said I can't -- that person has torn you apart for years, for years they have torn you apart and I said, It's not about me. I don't care. If they will stand, I will stand next to them. It doesn't matter," Glenn said.
