“And they who rain abuse upon you – they are jealous of you as well, ” says legendary singer Morrissey of those who hate Israel.

British singer Steven Patrick Morrissey, a vocal advocate for the Jewish state, is coming out with a new pro-Israel song in which he says that those who fight against Israel do so because they are “jealous” of the country.

In a report last week, The Jewish Chronicle said that Morrissey’s new lyrics, in the song entitled “Israel,” accuse Israel’s foes of wanting to cast their own “dark sky” over the Jewish state.

The six-minute-long pro-Zionist ballad is the last track on Morrissey’s new album Low In High School, which will be released this weekend.

The singer, who regularly performs in Tel Aviv, sings: “In other climes they bitch and whine/Just because you are not like them – Israel, Israel.”

Referencing Israel’s detractors, Morrissey intones, “And they who rain abuse upon you – they are jealous of you as well.”

Morrissey’s new record touches upon other Jewish themes, the Chronicle also reported.

In a song called “The Girl From Tel Aviv Who Wouldn’t Kneel,” Morrissey pays homage to Etty Hillesum, who was murdered in Auschwitz in 1943.

Morrissey’s pro-Israel stance spans over a period of more than a decade. He even appeared on stage in Tel Aviv draped in an Israeli flag.

In 2008 he ignored calls by the anti-Israel BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanction) movement to pull out of a concert in Israel, and instead ended a show saying: “God bless Israel.”

He also has the word “Israel” tattooed on his forearm in Hebrew.

In 2012 Morrissey was given a key to the city of Tel Aviv by its Mayor Ron Huldai.

“I have become a small face of Tel Aviv. I will be very happy to represent it with integrity and loyalty,” Morrissey said.

Morrissey is a somewhat unique pro-Israel voice in the British music scene, as many British artists are viciously anti-Israel, the most prominent of whom is Roger Waters, who has been accused of espousing outright anti-Semitic ideas.
