Jewish rocker Peter Himmelman has released a new song in support of Israel’s right to defend itself against Hamas terror from Gaza, the blog Elder of Zion reports. “Maximum Restraint” challenges claims Israel is responding disproportionately in the current conflict.
According to Himmelman, people “sitting in Santa Monica sipping lattes” are in no place to judge Israel’s response to Hamas rockets.
“It’s a disingenuous fantasy to think that Jews should just turn the other cheek. For Jews, turning the other cheek is a sin, ” he says.

This was Bob Dylan’s Neighborhood Bully back during the Lebanon War. With lyrics like :
Well, he knocked out a lynch mob, he was criticized / Old women condemned him, said he should apologize. / Then he destroyed a bomb factory, nobody was glad / The bombs were meant for him. He was supposed to feel bad / He’s the neighborhood bully.
