A new video produced by the Israel Defense Forces, ‘Terror in E Minor’ places the incessant yammering about “Zionist crimes” by the Hamas leadership in a new and comical spotlight.

It’s a classic Israeli move, one that speaks volumes about the country’s mindset: clearly, Israel is seriously preparing for war.


During the 2014 counter terrorism war with Hamas, Operation Protective Edge, Hamas attempted to intimidate Israelis by producing a Hollywood-style video that was heavy on drama, music bed and dark effects. But it had the opposite effect and in less than 24 hours, the music had shot to the top of the charts in Israel as a dance tune and nearly a dozen spoof videos had been produced.
