Notice the new bloggy feel good song of the day I put up? Yep, that's none other than Michael Jackson's classic, " Rock With You." During one of the many Jackson debacles this past year, my perpetually confused son, Buster, heard me say that Mr. Michael had made some anti-Semitic statements to go along with his litany of crimes against humanity in the name of "loving the children." I then had to explain what it meant for one to harbor and express anti-Semitic sentiments, to which an astonished Buster turned to me and said, "Michael Jackson said something bad about Jews???? But he sings that nice song about them." Now, it was my turn to play confused as I asked him what song he was referring to. Impatiently, Buster replied, "You know, that song, 'I Wanna Rock With Jews.' Michael Jackson must think they're pretty awesome if he wants to rock with them all night." We've sung that song as an ode to Judaism ever since.
However, actual rocking with Jews as described back in Biblical times probably entailed a vengeful crowd, a commandment breaker, and a buttload of stones. I prefer Michael Jackson's softer, gentler version.
