Arabs Embrace Israeli’s YouTube Spoof of Qaddafi Rant

An Israeli journalist and musician, Noy Alooshe, has created a video mocking Colonel Qaddafi’s speech from last week.  This video has gone viral and brings a touch of lightheartedness to what generally has been a horrific struggle for freedom in Libya.  This NY Times piece discusses this video that has become extremely popular throughout the Middle East.  It also provides some hope, at least for me, that maybe the Israeli and Arab people can live peacefully, even if their governments can’t.  Here is an Israeli showing his support for the democratic movements in the Middle East while his government is scared of the consequences of democracy.  You can watch the video on YouTube.
