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.
Drake's accent is hard to understand here but I'm PRETTY sure he references Gaza at the end of this clip. As if I needed any more reason to love him

Except for one problem: he was not referencing that Gaza at all, as he mentions in the song
At least this guy will be pleased
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.
