We Con the World - Political humor or Blatant Propaganda?

LatmaTV is a political electronic publication based in Israel; often using satire aimed towards the Israeli politicians and mainstream media and they also comment on international news affecting Israel.

The LatmaTV YouTube channel matches the caustic style of their web site, Latma.co.il

Following the recent situation in Gaza, where an apparently peaceful naval mission to deliver food and medical supplies ended up in a melee and several casualties, LatmaTV released a parody of “We are the world“.

That 80’s song featured several music stars of the time who gathered to sing together; the proceeds from the sale of that record went to famine-stricken Africa.

The Latma song, titled “We Con the World” is aimed at the news media attacking Israel’s handling of the situation and particularly at the Turkish media that are seeking martyrdom status for the people killed on the ship boarded by Israeli soldiers.

There comes a time
When we need to make a show
For the world, the Web and CNN

There’s no people dying,
so the best that we can do
Is create the greatest bluff of all

We must go on pretending day by day
That in Gaza, there’s crisis, hunger and plague
Coz the billion bucks in aid won’t buy their basic needs
Like some cheese and missiles for the kids

We’ll make the world
Abandon reason
We’ll make them all believe that the Hamas
Is Momma Theresa
We are peaceful travelers
With guns and our own knives
The truth will never find its way to your TV

Ooooh, we’ll stab them at heart
They are soldiers, no one cares
We are small, and we took some pictures with doves
As Allah showed us, for facts there’s no demand
So we will always gain the upper hand

We’ll make the world
Abandon reason
We’ll make them all believe that the Hamas
Is Momma Theresa
We are peaceful travelers
we’re waving our own knives
The truth will never find its way to your TV

If Islam and terror brighten up your mood
But you worry that it may not look so good
Well well well well don’t you realize
You just gotta call yourself
An activist for peace and human aid

We’ll make the world
Abandon reason
We’ll make them all believe that the Hamas
Is Momma Theresa
We are peaceful travelers
We’re waving our own knives
The truth will never find its way to your TV

We con the world
We con the people
We’ll make them all believe the IDF is Jack the Ripper
We are peaceful travelers
We’re waving our own knives
The truth will never find its way to your TV
We con the world
We con the people
We’ll make them all believe the IDF is Jack the Ripper
We are peaceful travelers
We’re waving our own knives
the truth will never find its way to your TV
The truth will never find its way to your TV

Is this video valid political humor or blatant Israeli propaganda?

    it is sadly funny, and it is the truth. you forgot that category. guess you didnt see any videos of what actually happened. or dont see what is happening everyday.

    propaganda, wtf?

    the world cant seem to decide between those that celebrate death and those that celebrate life and liberty and knowledge. kill the PhDs, long live those that reject the west!!

    gonna be trouble unless people think more, fast.

    sorry for being serious.

  2. Lucius "Guns" Fabrice says:

    I saw the videos, then I saw this video that uses humor. It’s up to the individual person to decide for themselves whether it’s parody or propaganda.

  3. Syd Homan says:

    This is definitely parody at its best. The propaganda is the way the media slants the truth
    when it comes to anything Israel does to defend herself.
