Settler Singer’s Sexy Gaza Lamentation Goes Viral
Novelist, author, songwriter and media sensation Orit Arfa has just released an original song and music video, “Home (Lives in My Song),” about the loss of settler homes in Gush Katif 10 years ago when the Jewish towns in Gaza were destroyed as part of then-Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s Disengagement Plan.
“One of my goals is to introduce a new language for talking about the settlements and Israeli politics in general,” says Arfa. “In my work covering and speaking out against the Disengagement from Gaza, I noticed that much of the narrative was dominated by the religious-Zionist camp, when there are many reason-based, secular, human-rights related reasons for Israel’s presence in Gaza and Judea and Samaria. The music video is designed to give a universal perspective to the loss of Gush Katif, focusing on what is most important: our homes.”
