NewsRealBlog: Do you understand the criticism you are getting for your video?
Caroline Glick: No. We were just making a parody of “We Are the World.”
NRB: Are you upset that Jews like Steven Spielberg are not speaking out in support of Israel?
Glick: Speilberg produced Schindler’s List and Munich. He clearly has a vision of Jews based upon weakness, not strength and upon Jews being protected by non-Jews rather than defending themselves with the tools of power.
NRB: Are you upset with the criticism?
Glick: Not at all. If they or Hamas said they liked me I would be very concerned about what I am doing.
NRB: Why did you make the video?
Glick: Latma is our website. At Latma it is our belief that by exposing the media to ridicule, we will help to change the nature of public discourse. We were planning on doing this parody for only the Israeli domestic audience.
NRB: Why did you change your mind?
Glick: We decided to direct it to the international audience when we saw the international community pile on against Israel and produced it in English.
