Israel Apologizes for Distributing Spoof Clip

The Israeli government has apologized for circulating a video clip that mocked activists on an aid flotilla raided en route to Gaza. The Guardian reports that a link to the video was distributed by the Israeli government press office to foreign journalists over the weekend:

"The YouTube clip, set to the tune of the 1985 charity single 'We Are the World,' features Israelis dressed as Arabs and activists, waving weapons while singing: 'We con the world, we con the people. We'll make them all believe the IDF (Israel Defense Force) is Jack the Ripper.'
