Israel’s real World Cup woes.

I know this is ancient history already, but a friend sent me this video last week and the song was stuck in my head all weekend.

It’s an Israeli parody of the unofficial World Cup song, Wavin’ Flag, by Somalian-born Canadian-rasied hip-hop artist K’naan.

The Israeli version laments Israel’s failure to get into the World Cup, for anti-Semitic reasons, of course… or not of course. Israel’s enemies (and this the song’s authors) claim it’s actually bad soccer. Imagine that?

On a non-surface level, it’s just nice and relaxing when we poke fun at ourselves once in a while, as opposed to obsessing through humor about everyone else hating ourselves.
