A hip-hop track dedicated to an American Jewish student who was murdered by Palestinian terrorists while on a study abroad program in Israel has gone viral.
The song, written and sung by fellow Americans in Israel, Samuel Kalnitz and Yaakov Galen, is a tribute to Ezra Schwartz, an 18-year-old Massachussetts native who was shot and killed in November in a Palestinian terror attack that killed five people. Watch it below:
The video opens with footage from a Patriots game with the commentator saying that Schwartz, “a huge Patriots fan, was gunned down nearly 5,500 miles away from home, while studying abroad.”
The clip continues with the rappers in Jerusalem, singing lyrics that include, “Just to hinder our existence these people [Palestinian terrorists] will give up theirs. … It seems like everything for them should be solved with violence.”
Interspersed with images of Schwartz, the clip continues with the rapper saying that the song is “a message to the world saying ‘we feel alone.'”
Schwartz was murdered while volunteering in the West Bank, bringing food to soldiers in the area.
