Muammar Qaddafi remix by an Israeli makes fans in Arab world

When Colonel Qaddafi appeared in wearing a strange beige robe and raising his arm while vowing to hunt down protesters “inch by inch, house by house, home by home, alleyway by alleyway,” Noy Alooshe, an Israeli journalist, musician and Internet buff did not miss the chance to convert this freigtening (because he is declaring war against his own people) but equally ridiculous video into a hit remix.

In few hours at the computer, he combined the video with “Hey Baby,” by the American rapper Pitbull feat T-Pain. He titled it “Zenga-Zenga,” echoing Colonel Qaddafi’s repetition of the word zanqa, Arabic for alleyway.

He uploaded the video to youtube and promoted it on social networking sites which drew more than 1.6 million hits by March 1st. Even later he has been revealed to be Israeli, reaction to the video stayed overwhelmingly positive.
