The video was made by a website, latma.co.il, run by Jerusalem
Post editor Caroline Glick, who described the clip on her blog as featuring "the Turkish-Hamas "love boat"
captain, crew and passengers in a musical explanation of how they con
the world." The video has been viewed nearly 1.5 million times on YouTube.

"The contents of the video in no way represent the official policy of
either the Government Press Office or of the State of Israel," a
statement from Israel's Government Press Office said, according to CNN.

However, according to the Guardian, a spokesman for the Israeli
government said that the video did reflect most Israelis' view of the
incident. "I called my kids in to watch it because I thought it was
funny," the spokesman said. "It is what Israelis feel. But the
government has nothing to do with it."
