Note to our readers: The following video is intended for women only. It features a female singer and clips of her performing, which involves halakhic issues for men.  Israel National News is posting this important statement by the performer in order not to deprive female viewers from seeing and hearing it.

A young woman from Gush Etzion, south of Jerusalem, has succeeded the Latma website's "We Can Con the World" spoof on the IHH flotilla terror activists as Israel’s best PR representative.

Yedida Freilich, a daughter of Australian immigrants, plays the piano and sings an original song that decries international hypocrisy towards Israel as the video shows scenes of terrorists and their attacks on Israelis. The video, produced by photographer Daniel Sass, also features screenshots of kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit and retired South African Judge Richard Goldstone, who authored a scathing report on Israel’s self-defensive Operation Cast Lead against the Hamas terrorist infrastructure.

The lyrics were composed with the help of her father and brother, and the joint effort resulted from an assignment at the Rubin Academy of Music and dance, where Yedida, age 22, is studying.

The bi-lingual family wrote the lyrics in Hebrew and English, and Yedida sings the lyrics of “Only Israel” in both languages.
