Also named in the suit are Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu; New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo; Miriam Adelson, the wife of billionaire settler financier Sheldon Adelson; Israeli lobby group the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC); and 13 others. The action targets Trump’s “Deal of the Century,” along with laws introduced in 28 American states that illegally deny Americans the right to boycott Israel.
John Prine Your Flag Decal Won't Get You into Heaven Anymore
John Prine (his debut album); many versions on youtube Atlantic Records 1971 Soul
"Your Flag Decal Won't Get You into Heaven Anymore" is an anti-war song which attacks phony patriotism, especially in the context of exhibitionistic chauvinism. The song was inspired by an edition of Reader’s Digest featuring a free flag decal, “suitable for sticking on car windows, storm doors, or anywhere else.” Many singers have adopted and sung this classic song, but none with the clarity and inner feeling that Prine evokes.
