Musical Revenge

This article by the Jerusalem Post speaks out against Dov Shurin and his brand of zealots. He quotes the Chofetz Chaim who "had harsh warnings against entertaining hateful feelings." I found this article a stark contrast to this one which seemed to enjoy his live version much more.

This reminds me of a song I had heard on the radio as a child. The song was written by Dov Shurin concerning the dangers of watching TV and it went like this:

Television is tamei (impure), television is Tamei, Avayros you will get, mitzvahs you'll forget....
take an ax and whack that TV set (swish) BOOOOOOM!

What a comical song, wish I had an audio clip.
