The CW when this came out was, here’s this Jewish guy from Queens, tossing his bit into the Zionist kitty.

But if you pay attention to the words, I think it could be more… ambiguous.

Silent Eyes
Burning in the desert sun
Halfway to Jerusalem
And we shall all be called as witnesses
Each and ev’ryone
To stand before the eyes of God
And speak what was done

Paul Simon

I would be glad not to have to answer for what has been done in and for Jerusalem.
