The Lyrics

And just whose feet in modern times
Should walk upon that Holy Land
The Jews, or Palestinians
Who has the right to own that sand?
The DNC's tied up in knots
The Arabs and the Jews are split
A proxy war in Charlotte fought
Until Obama ended it

What shall the fate of that town be
What shall its name be nowadays
Jerusalem or Al-Quds, gee!
The sparks that fly get set ablaze
If only Sheldon Cooper could
Solve this dispute without a gun
By building new Jerusalem
In the Sonoran Desert sun*
*That was an idea he came up with in a first season Big Bang theory episode.

William Blake? Your literacy is showing. Nice reworking, but as a non-American I don't get the connections. DNC = Democrat National Convention, and Charlotte is the venue? I think one Jerusalem is more than enough. And the western desert has already spawned one major religious cult too many. That much I know.

Yeah it was the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte; they voted to remove a plank from the platform that called for Jerusalem to remain undivided as the capital of Israel. Republicans threatened to pounce, so Obama intervened and the Democrats put the Jerusalem plank back in, much to the chagrin of the many Arab-American delegates who were present at the convention.
