Don Martin feat. Immortal technique, Eltipo Este, Tumi, Tonto Noiza - Boycott Israel

Produced by Norwegian hip hop legend Tommy Tee, the international hip hop collaboration "Boycott Israel" was just put out on YouTube. No points for guessing why this song comes about now, unfortunately. What is currently going on at the Gaza Strip is devastating to everyone involved. Picking sides in a conflict like the Israeli-Palestian situation is really unnecessary, as the sad truth no matter what is that the entire conflict makes a lot of people suffer greatly. Also, if you ask me, the aggression of the Israelis is way out of all proportions. It's a human disaster that needs to stop. As they say in the song "You can beef with Israel and not be antisemitic" - this is about thousands and thousands of human lives that are at stake. The song lends its support to BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) which, according to Wikipedia, "uses economic and political pressure on Israel to comply with the stated goals of the movement: the end of Israeli occupation and colonization of Palestinian land, full equality for Arab/Palestinian citizens of Israel, and respect for the right of return of Palestinian refugees".
