Subject: RE: Lyr Add: 'You, You Sons of Moses' Anti-Semitic
Today I was watching the news about Israel and this song kept going around in my mind. I wondered how that song originated, so Googled it and found this thread.

I think I first heard the song in 1956 while I was in the USMC in Japan, someone just started singing it. What I remember are the following lines:

Oh, you sons of Moses
With your crooked noses
Fight, fight, fight for Palestine

Onward, onward, swords against the foe
Forward, forward the Lily Banners flow

So, you sons of Moses
With your crooked noses
Fight, fight, fight for Palestine
