The satirical group Latma, which created the wildly popular hits We Con the World and The Three Terrors, has released a new parody. The video, posted shortly before the Sukkot holiday began, is a spoof on the traditional children's song “Shlomit Bona Sukkat Shalom” (Shlomit is building a sukkah of peace).
In the Latma version, young Shlomit's sukkah is greeted with international outrage as Arab leaders claim her hut has destroyed the chance for peace.
“Shlomit built a sukkah, filled with light of grace, but the building will soon have to cease. Because everyone knows a freeze has been imposed. Shlomit has destroyed the peace,” the song begins.
The original version was written by the famed Israeli composer Naomi Shemer, who is also known for songs such as Jerusalem of Gold.
