This is an infectious barnstormer of a unique pop song delivered with campy brio; it’s a lot of fun.

Israelism is a song recorded by Swedish band Army of Lovers, scoring a 1993 hit. It is one of their most well-known songs.
The song combines the Israeli-Palestinian peace and coexistence song “Hevenu Shalom Aleinu” with eurodance-beats and it also includes additional lyrics written by Alexander Bard, Anders Wollbeck, Jean-Pierre Barda, Michaela Dornonville de la Cour and Dominika Peczynski. The single was released as the first single from their third album, The Gods of Earth and Heaven.
“Israelism” charted for 4 weeks in Sweden and peaked at number 10. It topped the charts in Israel despite being subject to criticism. It also reached number 5 in Finland, number 9 in Belgium, number 31 in Switzerland and number 32 in Germany.

Shalom alechem

Evenu shalom alechem

Diamond market in the ghetto
Star of david on my chest
Sex is kosher on the sabbath
Jewish princess in my nest
Like aunt golda high on zion
Milk and honey are my drugs
Relic box of einstein’s hairdo
Spring prediction cloud of bugs

The heavens cry loud in the open
I hear the angels sing
Shalom be’israel shalom be’israel
Shalom la’olam shalom be’israel

Evenu shalom alechem
Evenu shalom alechem
Evenu shalom alechem
Evenu shalom shalom
Shalom alechem

Evenu shalom alechem
Evenu shalom alechem
Evenu shalom alechem
Evenu shalom shalom
Shalom alechem

Glory in the circumcision
Oops there goes a freudian slip
Army of lovers on a mission
Forty years of desert trips
Drinking from a stinking fountain
The kabbala and jezebel
Dancing horah on a mountain
Party like a bitch from hell

The heavens cry loud in the open
I hear the angels sing
Shalom be’israel shalom be’israel
Shalom la’olam shalom be’israel

Evenu shalom alechem
Evenu shalom alechem
Evenu shalom alechem
Evenu shalom shalom
Shalom alechem

Evenu shalom alechem
Evenu shalom alechem
Evenu shalom alechem
Evenu shalom shalom
Shalom alechem

The heavens cry loud in the open
I hear the angels sing
Shalom be’israel shalom be’israel
Shalom la’olam shalom be’israel

Evenu shalom alechem
Evenu shalom alechem
Evenu shalom alechem
Evenu shalom shalom
Shalom alechem

Evenu shalom alechem
Evenu shalom alechem
Evenu shalom alechem
Evenu shalom shalom
Shalom alechem
Evenu shalom shalom
Shalom alechem
