New Song Defends Israel’s ‘Maximum Restraint,’ Takes on the Media

Singer-songwriter Peter Himmelman offers a bluesy defense of Israel, as well as a critique of Hamas and its capitulators, in a new song titled “Maximum Restraint.” Himmelman praises the Israeli government for its approach to the ongoing conflict, despite criticism from members of the media and global community. For example, the chorus goes as follows:

Another photo op to take, take straight to CNN

they paint Israel as the aggressor – and then it all begins again

When someone comes to kill you

In the middle of the night

Don’t try to defend yourself

Don’t use an ounce of might

Just sit there quietly and try hard not to faint

As the world calls out for – maximum restraint.

The lyrics also takes on the Obama administration’s handling of the issue, including John Kerry.
