Yalla Ya Nasrallah


Nidfok otchah inshallah

More Youtube fun. This music video is in Hebrew but it does have English subtitles. I know I shouldn’t love it, but I do anyway. So sue me.

Thanks to Jewlicious reader Abu Elvis for the heads up.

    MSNBC Poll – 86% Believe Bush Should Be Impeached

    Do you believe President Bush’s actions justify impeachment? * 266674 responses

    Yes, between the secret spying,Israelis “911″ connection, the deceptions leading to war and more, there is plenty to justify putting him on trial.
    87%

    No, like any president, he has made a few missteps, but nothing approaching “high crimes and misdemeanors.”
    4.4%

    No, the man has done absolutely nothing wrong. Impeachment would just be a political lynching.
    7.3%

    I don’t know.
    1.8%

    I also add my own information into the polls I copy-paste because I’m a Nazi. And a bedwetter.

    Sababa! Who actually sings this? It does sound like a punchier version of Ethnix. Any chance that it makes it to Galgalatz?

    I hope Tipex or Subliminal comes up with a good song for the “War in the North”. If any Zionistic leaning groups can, they can.

    Disgusting – shame on you bloodthirsty racists.

    Yes. A song about Nasrallah, Israel’s sworn enemy, getting his comeuppance is a prime example of bloodlust. When US soldiers sang songs in WWII about Hitler getting his comeuppance, I suppose that was racist bloodlust too. Because nobody in the world except the racistzionistimperialistapartheidoccupyingforce (breath) would ever do something so heinous, so completely amoral, as recording a song mocking an enemy sworn to its destruction. How…awful.

    I mean, we’re Israelis here. Nobody I know takes pleasure from the death of innocent Lebanese. Bloodlust is about as far from it as you can get. But if you want to talk about hate speech, “You people are freaking disgusting,” “bloodthirsty racists,” etc. is a pretty good example. Good job! I think somebody may have just been looking for a justification to get their own racist demons off their chest…

    Hmmm an American Marine got in trouble for a video he created (him sitting playing guitar making fun of Iraqis).

    There was media outrage and the marine got in trouble . Americans complained that the song was inflammatory.

    The US marine’s song was nowhere near as inflamatory as the song you folks link to and think is so funny – yet you folks approve of this insensitive crap.

    This morning we hear about QANA.

    Are you folks cheering about that as well?

    Ah yes, you folks. MUCH better. And no, nobody is cheering about Qana. Except, of course, people who slaver at every Lebanese killed and eagerly anticipate the next round of accidental civilian killings so they can provide justification for their own preconceived political beliefs and attack Israelis and Jews. You know, like yourself. You’re thrilled about Qana. You get an excuse to use all those words like “bloodthirsty” you’ve been wanting to sling at Jews for so long. Mazal tov, bitch.

    In my opinion – you must be bloodthirsty to engage in activities which cause this much senseless death. There is no remorse. No pulling back.

  25. michael

    7/30/2006 at 3:40 pm

    So where are your condemnations of Hizbullah for firing hundreds of rockets solely at civilian targets? Just because they’re bad shots doesn’t mean the intent to kill civilians isn’t there with every missile fired.

    Or is this a one-sided sort of criticism? Can only Jews be bloodthirsty enough to warrant a comment from that sage, disgusted Canadian who knows better than Israelis themselves how bloodthirsty Israelis are?

  26. ck

    7/30/2006 at 3:40 pm

    Hey Zed. Uh… fuck you very much for your comments. Clearly you are a complete imbecile. No one here cheers when innocent civilians are killed. In fact, I would urge that those responsible for those deaths ought to be held responsible for their crimes and ought to be punished as severely as possible. Yes, I am talking about those cowards who dress in civilian clothes and launch attacks at civilians from densely populated civilian areas. I mean when a gunman takes hostage and in trying to stop the gunman, the police accidentally kill a hostage, you’d hardly call the policeman who fired the errant bullet a killer would you? In fact, Canadian law holds the gunman responsible for the death of the hostage.

    But whatever. You’re an idiot Zed. The song only makes fun of Nasrallah and does not call for the death of any innocent civilians. Some friggin bloodlust. Enjoy the relative peace and tranquility of Canada Zed. May you never be in our position.

    Oh and click here to see some blood thirsty Zionist oppressors, err I mean Israeli children, enjoying the anti-Nasrallah video. It’s kinda funny, becuase the chorus does say “We will fuck you Nasrallah, if Allah wills it…” nd the kids are there with there parents clapping and singing along. It’s cute. But wrong. So very wrong. I blame Hezballah.

    Maybe you should read some Israeli literature, listen to some Israeli music, take in some Israeli art before you make sweeping pronouncements on the nature of Israeli culture as seen through its art. I mean, I could find a song by a Canadian white power band and make the assumption that all Canadians are Nazis, because “art is a window into the soul of a culture,” but that wouldn’t be very fair or accurate, now would it?

    Am I a bloodthirsty soulless animal for cheering on the deaths of insects using women and children for body armor while deliberately attacking and murdering civilians?

    Zed, while you’re up there in Canada feeling superior to everyone else, just know that these Islamic Facists have you in their sights too. They might let you live a little longer, because you’re such a useful idiot, but the Israelis know the score and so do a few others who have experience beyond some 3rd grade level morally relative ‘conflict resolution’ course.

    Why don’t you do us all a favor and leave the fighting to men and women that have the guts to defend the very freedom that allows you to be such a jackass.

    The IDF is fighting the fight that men who squat to pee like you think that you can avoid by ‘conflict resolution’.

    Well, I have news for you. You are free to speak your small little mind because of brave men (and women) like that and if these warriors that you so despise are unsuccessful, you’ll lose that ability and your life. Too bad you aren’t emotionally old enough to understand that

Please know that we have a deep and abiding affection, Love, and admiration for you all, that the liberal media will never be able to take away. The Bible tells us to pray for the nation of Israel, and that, I will bless those who bless you and I will
    curse those who curse you. We take those words very seriously. As for the video… Are you KIDDING me?? That was the most hilarious thing I ever saw!! Of course, what else would a middle age warmongering housewife from Oklahoma say?? LOL!! May God continue to ALWAYS protect and bless the Little Nation of Israel!!

    Awesome song, I find myself humming it all day. While the lyrics are rude and insulting, I don’t consider them ‘racist’ because they are very specific in their aim, Nasrallah and Hezbolla. As a previous poster pointed out, being rude and insulting to one who openly claims to be your sworn enemy is not really a major offense.

    I like the song, it’s catchy, it also detracts from the fact that far more innocents are dieing then hezzbolah. Yes, if you could actually target members of hezzbolah itself instead of massicuring large amounts of innocent civiliars, I would support it. As it stands, you are killing far too many innocents to justify your invasion and bombing of Palestine and you should be ashamed of yourself. Just because they kill innocent civilians, doesn’t give you the right to as well. You are simply lowering yourself to the same level as hezzbolah itself. Pathetic and despicable.

Israel has my support, the makers of this song have my support and I would hope that people with more brains than the halfwit ‘Zed’ can realize that it’s just a song. Nothing more.

And more and More? Do you really think that Israel is mostly killing civilians? What are Hezbollah’s tactics? Are you familiar with some of them?

  54. david smith

    8/4/2006 at 12:42 pm

    It’s quite a challenge to imagine what could match this ditty for sheer witlessness and stupidity, and really difficult to contemplate the mind-numbing ignorance of anyone who would feel moved to sit around the dinner table and teach this idiocy to their children. More importantly, this doggerel displays an air of smug self-congratulation that’s hard to reconcile with the pervasive claim that, in contrast to Hezbollah’s deliberate targeting of civilians, Israelis are grief-stricken to virtual insensibility by being forced to kill all the little tiny Muslim babies being used by Hezbollah as human shields. I wonder if the parents of those children killed in the ongoing bombing would appreciate how hilarious and brilliant and hysterical this song is.

  55. themiddle

    8/4/2006 at 1:22 pm

    Oy, David, you’re forcing me to enter this discussion. I agree with your first sentence. But what the hell does targeting the man who makes himself the face of Hizbullah, intentionally seeking to sow fear among Israelis, have to do with being insensitive to killing tiny little Muslim babies? It’s a silly song with a beat and people are releasing tension with it, that’s about it. If you expect them to extrapolate from a simple song deeper meaning and have some form of philosophical debate about whether the desire to kill Nasrallah also involves the killing of innocent little Muslim babies, you’d probably need a different song. You’d also have to be living in a place where you’re not being bombed daily, having fled your home or living in n underground bomb shelter for weeks.

  56. david smith

    8/5/2006 at 2:22 am

    Middle,

    Believe me, I was acutely aware of, and utterly unsurprised by, the fact of your absence from this discussion; forgive the presumption, but it seemed obvious to me there wasn’t a chance in hell you’d be participating in something this crude and distasteful. And though I haven’t bothered to look, it would surprise me if you’ve spent much time commenting on the several other recent idiotic posts of video games showing Nasrallah getting a beating. Once, great; go to town. After all, there’s no accounting for taste. But what is this, the fourth goddamn post with this theme within the past few days? Enough already! It makes me feel like a moron for reading the blog.

    Bad taste aside, the “little tiny Muslim babies” reference was addressing something different. Maybe it wasn’t clear, but I was being facetious about the argument I’ve seen – again and again and again – that the difference between Hezbollah and Israel is that the Israelis have never targeted civilians intentionally, and are as deeply reluctant as they are remorseful about every civilian life Hezbollah forces them to take by using them as human shields.

    Fine. But goddamn it, if you really give a flying fuck about the civilians that have died at your hands, you don’t wallow in triumphant laughter – and you sure don’t teach your children to laugh – at war footage showing the rubble that may well be piled on their rotting corpses. Even if it gives you a good laugh about your enemy with the lice-ridden beard. Sorry, Middle, but I can’t quite dismiss it as good clean fun. It is creepy; it is unseemly; and, frankly, it is redolent of another cinematic depiction of war footage that gets big laughs from the audience, this one involving the bloody strafing of a character named Goldstein.

  57. Jonathan

    8/5/2006 at 10:05 am

    I agree, David, this song just doesn’t cut the mustard. Personally, I think the song lost all credibility when it described Nasrallah as being a megalomaniac, then declared that the ENTIRE IDF was coming just for him, thus feeding his megalomania. Right there I decided this song was not fit to be the foundation of Israels military strategy, it just wasn’t nuanced enough.

    Other than that, though, it’s awesome!

  58. ck

    8/5/2006 at 1:44 pm

    *sigh*
    I’ll respond in the spirit of Tish B’Av which was just a couple of days ago.

    I posted the ditty. And while some may take umbrage with it’s musical quality, it reminded me of the Mizrachi music I grew up listening to around the house. Perhaps some prefer Wagner or Brahms, but that’s a matter of taste and to each his own.

    Yalla Ya Nasrallah is merely the latest in a long line of humorous songs produced during times of war meant to poke fun at the enemy – someone pointed out this link to a song called Der Fuhrer Face – not the greatest song in the world, but it was meant to elicit laughs and bring comfort a nation at war.

    And that’s what we are. A nation at war. A third of the country is in bomb shelters or has fled away from the range of Hizballah rockets. Civilians and soldiers, Jews, Christians and Arabs are getting killed every day. Would you really begrudge us a few laughs at the expense of the head of Hizballah?

    The video in question was merely the first one available on the Web that featured this song. It also had the lyrics translated into English. The militaristic tone of the imagery is not quite to my taste, but the point was to feature the song and its lyrics. That having been said, nothing about the lyrics encourages or revels in the death of innocent civilians.

    If you find it crude and distasteful to hate a man who sees fit to order his faithful to lob rockets indiscriminately at civilians, well so be it. You’re obviously a better man than I am. Please accept my apology for affronting your sensibilities and allow me to urge you to simply not click on the video. Or read anything I write. You always have that option.

    In the meantime, if it’s ok with david smith and the middle, I’ll continue to post whatever I see fit. It may not all be pretty, but it does come from someone who’s there.

    Witless. Stupid. Idiotic. That’s what you agreed with. david smith later added “crude and distasteful” to the mix.

    You know, tens if not hundreds of thousands of people here in Israel really like that song. It puts smiles on their faces and makes them laugh at a time when most stuff coming out of the radio is just death and war. As I’ve mentioned before, the accompanying video is a bit crude but the vast majority of Israelis haven’t seen it. The lyrics may well be, according to some, witless, stupid and idiotic but judging by IP addresses, those making that judgement have the benefit of not living in a war zone and not knowing the attendant pressures that that entails.

    Despite everything though, I can assure david smith that people here don’t go into a bloodthirsty frenzy when the song comes on. No one here except for the mentally unhinged is happy when civilians die. Nothing in the lyrics celebrates the death of innocents.

    david smith hasn’t just insulted a silly ditty. He’s actually managed to insult a large segment of the country, who in his depiction is either completely idiotic or genocidal. That’s not quite fair and I do wish he’d reconsider. I wish you’d reconsider too.

    I can just imagine this being played in Lebanon. Now what would be the effect? It isn’t suppsoed to win friends. Surely what it does is to puncture the preening arrogance of Hezbollah demagogues who would love to sell the nonsensical idea that they have got Israel frightened. No one watching this could suppose that that was the case.

    And that is its function, surely? To puncture the lies of those who really do trade in hate speech – those who want to kill Israelis for the crime of being alive.

    In war, insult has a function. When they are dropping bombs on you, it’s better than crying and running away. As someone said above, WW2 soldiers had their own line in insults for Hitler. This is just the same thing. And it’s every bit as justified.

    Israel, you do have friends around the world. I am grateful that you are there, and for everything that your ancestors have passed on to me.

    Uh, ck, you are the person who insulted Arik Einstein, remember?

    I find this video to be witless, stupid and idiotic. It is also crude and distasteful. TO ME. I don’t have to like shitty movies, I don’t have to like shitty songs, I don’t have to like shitty lyrics, and I don’t have to like them because hundreds of thousands of people do. I don’t like Britney Spears and I believe she’s sold millions of albums. I don’t like Ben Stiller either and find his movies inane. Adam Sandler is worse and the couple of his movies that I’ve seen qualify as idiotic and stupid. Gosh, I hope I didn’t offend too many people. I know I should reconsider now that Adam Sandler fans are in tears, but I can’t because in my opinion his humor sucks.

    As for the rest of it, it seems that we agree. I wrote: It’s a silly song with a beat and people are releasing tension with it, that’s about it. If you expect them to extrapolate from a simple song deeper meaning and have some form of philosophical debate about whether the desire to kill Nasrallah also involves the killing of innocent little Muslim babies, you’d probably need a different song. You’d also have to be living in a place where you’re not being bombed daily, having fled your home or living in n underground bomb shelter for weeks.

    As for the IP addresses, aren’t you writing from one where not a single rocket has come close? I mean, my friends in Jerusalem report guiltily that their lives are relatively unaffected by the war except for the hosting of friends and family from the North. Are you suggesting you have a better understanding of this song because of IP addresses? Are you suggesting that some of the commentary you see from this IP address is inferior to what you see from IP addresses closer to the fight? If you’d like me to come and visit you, surely there are nicer ways of going about it.

    And anyway, the UN Security Council, led by lots of people with IP addresses different than yours that originate in lands far from Israel are about to have far greater influence on the outcome of this war than those with the Israeli IP addresses.

    Wo! Take it easy there spanky! I never look at your IP address! Remember, you’re the enigma – I have no idea where you live or anything. ;) I was talking about david smith. But as long as we’re on the topic, yes – no rockets in Jerusalem. But numerous prospective suicide bombers were caught minutes from where I live and there is that sad matter of all those funerals. Funerals for 21 year old men are never fun. No. So… there is a bit of a perspective issue, even from Jerusalem.

    When I expressed my dislike for Arik Einstein, despite how I couched it, it was a personal opinion. I didn’t insult the intelligence of those who like Arik Einstein and I certainly didn’t extrapolate any political meaning from this preference. See the difference? And I’m not talking about you. I’m talking about our ass kissing esteemed commentor, Mr. smith.

    I just wanted to say in my capacity as a person with an impeccable music collection spanning from Charles Mingus to Prince Far I, and as a person with a profound appreciation for Israeli culture, that Arik Einstein sucks. I present as exhibit A “San Francisco Al Ha-Mayim.” I also submit as an incidental argument that any cheesy bus station Mizrachi music is better than anything Arik has coughed up in years. Give me “Ha-Perach be-Gani” over “Kama Tov She’Bat Ha-Baita” any day.

    I gotta come back to comment on this after reading some of the comments some others have posted. People seem to be taking this little music video -way- too seriously. On one hand, it makes me feel bad that I took pleasure in seeing the video. I even hosted it on one of my websites. But, on the other hand, I think it’s a testament to the different standards hold Jews to. Would you same people who are screaming about this video be yelling at the Hizbullah with such determination if they made the same kind of video? I don’t believe you would. Why? I don’t know. Perhaps because they are seen as the underdog when, in fact, it is Israel, being bombed from afar by cowards hiding behind women and children who are the ‘underdogs’ in this conflict.

    I took pleasure in seeing this video because it had a stupid, catchy tune and it made the bad guy sound bad.

    One thing I did not like about the song was that on one website I saw a family with their children watching the song being played. Obviously, I disagree with this because children are highly receptive and aren’t able to dismiss such a thing as easily as some of us are for what it is, -a simple song-.

    Nothing more.

    Great song. Let’s all be proud of our armored bulldozers. NObody destroys arab civilians like the IDF. Truly the masters. Funny at first I thought this was an anti-Israel song because most of what they say about the bad guy actually rings true about Israel. Megalomania anyone? Seriously guys, look at the USA humbled in Iraq. No it’s our turn or soon will be.

  77. ck

    8/9/2006 at 6:44 pm

    patrice: well… you’d be factually wrong there. No one destroys Arab civilians like… other Arabs! For instance during Black September in 1971, tens of thousands of Arad civilians were estimated to have been killed by both the Jordanian army and the Palestinian Liberation Army. The Syrian government massacred anywhere from 25,000 to 38,000 Arab civilians in the city of Hama in 1982 in order to squelch a rebellion by the Sunni Islamic Brotherhood. And what about Lebanon? Woosh! 1000 Arab civilians killed in one day by Christian forces in the city of Karantina. Damour Massacre – 582 Christians killed by Palestinian forces in one day – Tel al-Zaatar Massacre more Palestinians killed by Christian Maronite forces. I could go on and on and on.

    It’s clear that if you want to kill Arab civilians, the best way to go is to get other Arabs. Armoured bulldozers are just too slow and the other benefit is that the world won’t give a shit! Arab on Arab violence just doesn’t do it for anyone.

    Really liked the song, I’ll definitely be singing the song at forthcoming demonstrations against pro-Hezbollah supporters and their other Islamofascist friends. Would I be correct in assuming that David Smith is a citizen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland? Apart from his unreflected and – unfortunately quite typical for all those other Britons that are only to quick (and too happy) to jump on the bandwaggon – extremely one sided opinions, he insisted on using a pedantic Queen’s English which thankfully no-one uses any more, apart from the Queen and David Smith himself, apparently. As said, we rid ourselves of such pretentiousness a long time ago, now it’s time to do the same with people like him. Am yisrael chai! Nidfok otkha Nasralla!

    Zed-Zed is what’s wrong with Canada right now. A growing population of islamist terrorist scum who, because of free speech, can say whatever they want no matter how ignorant or incorrect. thankfully Canada’s conservative party under the leadership of Stephen Harper supports Israel 100%. Anyone with half a brain can understand that Israel, the only democratic and civil nation in the middle east must be supported in its fight against terror.

    I’m not a Jew but I find that song incredibly catchy. Even If i don’t understand the Arabic and Hebrew the song still rhymed and is good.

    I wonder why they used Arabic words though. I heard that Jews in Israel sometimes use arabic phrases like Inshallah or Yalla but i never believe that.

    p.s. after the disaster that was the war. I bet the song writers must feel red faced.

  91. ck

    11/17/2006 at 12:26 am

    Lament: We use Arabic words because many of us are in fact Jews of Arabic descent. My Grandfather who had lived in Israel since 1956 only ever spoke Arabic. Arabic is an official language in Israel – you find it on all street signs and currencyn and upwards of 10% of our citizenry are Muslim and Christian Arabs. We don’t hate Arabs or the Arabic language and we sure do love Arabic food like pitas and falafel etc. Many israeli artists perform in Arabic too. Not a big deal – it’s the neighbourhood we’re in and we’re a part of it and we’re here to stay. OK chabibi?

    Lament, Hebrew’s relationship is a lot like American English’s relationship to Mexican Spanish. You know how most Americans know some Spanish and like to throw it around?

    It’s like that with Israelis and Arabic. And of course there’s the fact that some Israelis are Arabs…

  94. stephanie

    12/1/2006 at 3:55 pm

    what i meant to say is, when two countries and cultures live side by side, there’s a fair amount of blending. One shades into the other. Look at the way, for instance, the American southwest is full of place names in Spanish.

    I’m actually very interested in the conversation and debate that seems to be happening here.

    While I do live in Canada *Glares at Zed Zed* I do know many people in Israel, from family to very close friends. I love this song and often hum it all day long. I have friends who have asked me what I’m humming or singing and I often explain a few of the lyrics here and there. Most of them are shocked then I explain who Nasrallah is and the Hezballah and some of them hum along with me now.

    As well there was a request for just the song without the video. I’ve ripped it myself from the video and I’m hosting it on my site for the time being. Here’s the link

    I don’t think there’s anything wrong with hating someone who has done so much wrong to you and your nation personally – you think we’re supposed to like Arabs and terrorists after all the suicide bombs and what not?! Those who like this song don’t like it because we internalize the lyrics and we would run around in the streets screaming at the top of our lungs that they all look like orangutans but we DEFINITELY may laugh at this video and think that it is really cute in the way that it makes fun of those we despise so much BECAUSE THEY WANT TO KILL US OUT

Please know that we have a deep and abiding affection, Love, and admiration for you all, that the liberal media will never be able to take away.

    and are you honestly saying israelis are bloodthirsty when the lebonese started the war? would you rather have israel just sit there and let itself be bombed?

    go to hell

    This is the essence of everything. Anti Israeli proponents never , ever , directly address the specifics in return

    Why? Simply the obvious. You cannot honestly and logically address the substance of a point made by , say , Netanyahu , and negate it.

    Because you can’t negate the simple honest truth.
