A Great Song and a Great Video

I know that most of you won't be able to understand this song, but I felt that it spoke to me so much that I had to let you know about it anyway.

HaDag Nachash is an Israeli hip-hop/reggae/rock band that has been around for a while, I've seen them live a few times, and while they're very politically left-wing, sometime their message is timeless.

This song is crying out about the negativity found in current Israeli society. Basically they feel that current divides are killing us as a whole and we've forgotten that we are "brothers". The video uses death announcements to show the lyrics - forcing one to pay attention to them and reinforce the message that we are killing ourselves at the same time. The video is just as profound as the song itself.

The lyrics (Hebrew) can be found here, the English translation (not bad) can be found here.
