We recently saw the video released in Israel mocking the humanitarian crisis in Gaza and the flotilla controversy — featured on Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN). Now the Israeli government has apologized for the video — which was distributed by its press office.
The YouTube clip, entitled “We Con the World,” mocks the notion of a humanitarian crisis in Gaza despite the findings of the United Nations and various European countries. It scoffs at the notion that “a billion dollars” cannot buy enough to feed people in Gaza and supply their children with “missiles and cheese.”
The Israeli government stated: “The contents of the video in no way represent the official policy of either the Government Press Office or of the State of Israel.” However, at the same time, the Israeli spokesman added that he liked the video and recommended it for his children: “I called my kids in to watch it because I thought it was funny. It is what Israelis feel. But the government has nothing to do with it.”
The video mirrors another video released by the Israeli government that also mocked suggestions of any crisis.
