The Sharm Al Sheikh Kedushah

This is what I think about during kedushah when the chazzan sings it to the following song about Israel's capture of Sharm Al Sheikh in 1956, presumably thinking that it is an old Chassidic melody (see this related post: link). I have a vague memory of visiting the city in 1982 just before Israel returned it to Egypt. My parents say that we went to Yamit but not Sharm Al Sheikh, so maybe my memory is about seeing highway signs to it (I was only 10).
