Elton John should boycott Israel!

Canadian Foreign Policy, →Video

 Palestinian civil society has called on Elton John to respect its boycott call and cancel his June 17th concert in Tel Aviv. If he does so, he'll be joining Santana and Gil-Scott Heron, who recently cancelled their spring concerts in Israel. This video suggests six reasons why Elton should join the BDS (boycott, divestment, sanctions) movement.

Boycott Aparthied

Apparently Elvis Costello boycotted by cancelling his tour dates yesterday! 

Yes, Elton should only go to

Yes, Elton should only go to Arab states, where they would probably kill him for being gay.

Right, because there's no

Right, because there's no homophobia in Israel.

No sir. None.

Homophobia is one thing,

Homophobia is one thing, treating homosexuality as a capital crime is another. Try visiting Iran, Yemen, Mauritania, Saudi Arabia, Sudan or the United Arab Emirates. If you can't figure out the difference then you are truly hopeless.

Elton should go, Yes sir.

Go Israel! Go Elton!

Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East. The pro-Palestinian supporters are just idiots and Jew-haters. Elton John is neither so that's why he came to Israel and gave a great performance. Thank you, Elton, for not listening to those terrorist supporters!

  It's really sad to see

  It's really sad to see people justifying what Israel is doing in Palestine. People are dying by the thousands and you have ignorant people saying things like Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East and that the pro-Palestinian supporters are just idiots and Jew-haters. IT'S PATHETIC. It's a shame people like that even exist. Israel has no business in Palestine.
