Judith Levy wrote a great article about this in The Washington Times.
This is the money quote:
- "This little incident also publicizes something I believe to be one of Israel's most valuable strengths -- the ability of so many of its people to take the sting out of something that looks unrelentingly grim, and in the process to diminish it and make it mentally manageable. That's a talent that can be difficult to explain to people abroad; this video demonstrates it beautifully. I love the characteristically Israeli, off-the-wall, impromptu creativity of the idea. Most of all, I love the thought of young Arabs and Jews uniting, however briefly and remotely, over two minutes of ridiculous trance music."
