On his latest track Only You released yesterday, Drake includes a few lines with Arabic – including a reference to Gaza – leading some Israel haters to get rather excited.

Except for one problem: he was not referencing that Gaza at all, as he mentions in the song

I am guessing Drake is going to be receiving even more hate now for crushing their dreams…just like he did a few years ago when he made that “Israel” pun.

As for me, I am relieved this does not seem to be a case of yet another celebrity disappointing me by being on the wrong side of history.

I’ll just assume for now that Drake is still a nice, Jewish boy.
