‘Jews Can’t Stop’ Is the Worst Miley Cyrus Parody Video Yet

The world absolutely did not need a pro-Israeli-settlers parody video of Miley Cyrus’s “We Can’t Stop,” but we now have one, thanks to an American Jewish woman and current resident of Israel, Orit Arfa. In a piece called “Jeffrey Goldberg Twerks John Kerry’s Butt,” Arfa explains that she recently took exception to a Bloomberg opinion column called “John Kerry Is Israel’s Best Friend” by Jeffrey Goldberg, who had previously written something that was nominally about Miley. So, she created “Jews Can’t Stop.”

The spoof features karaoke-style vocals, shots of another young woman pole-dancing on a checkpoint sign, and lyrics such as, “We gonna fight all night/ till we get our birthright,” “Everyone in line to make peace/Trying to get a Nobel for peace/We all so fed up here,” and “Can’t you see it’s we who own the land/Can’t you see it’s we who take a stand.” Regardless of your opinion on Israel and Palestine, we think everyone can agree that this thing is not good for anyone.
