Battlesong for the next Jihad?

Looks like the Egyptian government's Ministry of Culture have released a hit single!

Recently, they advised up-and-coming musician Shaaban Abdel Rahiem to change the lyrics of his song "I Don't Like Israel" to "I Hate Israel" in order to better reflect the feeling of the Egyptian people. The results? "I Hate Israel" is taking Egypt by storm, ranked #1 on Egypt's popular music charts...

Is it Egypt's way of fomenting anti-Israeli feelings, or just of blowing off steam... giving the radicals a way of rebelling against Israel other than war, while still taking U.S. foreign aid? Either way, it's just in time for Nakba, the anniversary of the Palestinians losing their land.
