We’ve been here before.

The Jenin Massacre that wasn’t.

The Pallywood industry of deception.

My father just told me about this song by Peter Himmelman, “Maximum Restraint.” Himmelman, in addition to being a singer-songwriter in his own right is also Bob Dylan’s son-in-law.

In the song, Himmelman mocks calls for Israel to exercise “maximum restraint” in response to rocket attacks.

Here’s a taste of the lyrics:

As Operation Protective Edge it’s worth anticipating the likely response to Israel’s latest war against Hamas. Israel will be accused of a disproportionate response and of not taking care to avoid collateral damage.
