Grammy Winning Singer Alanis Morissette Defies Muslim Boycott & Death Threats over Israel Concert

 

OH CANADA!!!

Seven-time Grammy award winner Alanis Morissette is going forward with her concert in Israel and is defying the Muslim boycott and death threats. She is scheduled to give a concert in Tel Aviv on Monday, December 3, for the first time since she performed in Israel in 2000. Morissette will not back down to the pressure  bullying and threats. As stated at Legal Insurrection, it appears to be “courage week” in Canada as last week Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird provided strong support for Israel in the UN and unlike Stevie Wonder, Morissette went forward with her concert.

The Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel, however, is urging her to cancel at the last minute, due to the recent Gaza conflict and ongoing political situation.

“We would find it especially disturbing should you choose to play in Israel given its recent onslaught on Gaza,” the campaign group said in an open message to the vocal artist. “Palestinian civil society groups are calling on artists to shun Tel Aviv in the same way that South African activists called on artists to boycott Sun City.”

“We hope that you will not be persuaded by the argument that music builds bridges and can bring smiles to people’s faces, thus hopefully spreading a message of peace,” they added. “Any message of peace you hope to bring will be drowned by Israel’s well-oiled publicity that will use you to rebrand itself as a normal state that promotes music and culture.”

      Dear Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel,

      You had many chances for peace including the original two state option over 60 years ago. Instead, time after time you chose to attack Israel and time and time again you blame Israel for for the aggression and whine to the world that you are the victims like a bunch of sissy marys. It is obvious to free thinking peoples what your end game is, you have stated it over and over and we are tired of it.

      My hope for this high holy season is that Israel will give the whole world the greatest gift ever and flash fry your asses into nonexistence.

      Peace to you, or go away.
