Pfeffer wants to be accepted by the Israeli Leftist elite which is post-Modernist and anti-Nationalist. Thus, he says the national anthem is "absurd". Most people in the world do not subscribe to this self-destructive ideology. People feel very attached to their own people, their own symbols and their own culture while showing respect to those of other people as well. This post-Modernist minority is trying to impose its negative values on everyone else. I have a suggestion for Pfeffer to try out...go tell the Egyptians and Syrians that THEIR national anthems are "absurd" and see what the results are.
