In the short film the ‘militants’ meet another driver and ask him in Hebrew “how do we get to Jerusalem?” to which the man replies “take a left.” “The left will give in to terror,” a message on the screen reads.
In a statement on
widely reported by Israeli media, the band write they will take legal action against Netanyahu, saying: “We strongly condemn and reject this ruthless infringement of intellectual property rights and the distortion of the reputation of Torabyeh. .. Torabyeh group will take all necessary legal action against those responsible.”
It adds that by associating the Jordanian band with Isis, Netanyahu's campaign may have put their lives "at risk". “The use of the song in the particular context cannot be considered anything but deliberate propaganda of the Zionist right for the purpose of electoral propaganda and attacking the so-called Zionist "left wing". Furthermore, it implicates the Torabyeh group by containing serious accusations of terrorism and association with Isis which is consequently putting the group’s members lives at risk.”
