Subject: RE: Lyr Add: 'You, You Sons of Moses' Anti-Semitic
I heard the song at a San Francisco area BBG-AZA convention in the mid-60s. I thought it was hysterical (and still do, which is why I Googled it) and never considered it anti-Semitic. To me, it was a spoofy source of Jewish pride. The fragment I recall is:

Matzo, blintzes, Manischewitz wine
We will always fight for Palestine.
Make the big decision
Have a circumcision.
Fight fight fight for Palestine.
