SHAME ON YOU PAUL McCARTNEY FOR ‘DAY TRIPPIN’ TO APARTHEID ISRAEL

In 1965 Israel was scared the Beatles would corrupt the country, in 2008 it’s the country thats corrupted the Beatles. Well one of them anyway – Paul McCartney. Ron Prosor the PR tosser has had his wet propaganda dreams come true, what better brand to associate with and legitimise the criminal apartheid state of Israel, it’s at times like this I really miss John Lennon… Although Pauls spokesman has said ‘nothing is confirmed.’ So perhaps theirs still hope and Prosors been a bit premature again, probably trying to use media pressure to win the deal. If he does accept McCartney will be living up to his bands lyrics as a day tripper as John put it “Day trippers are people who go on a day trip, right? Usually on a ferryboat or something. But [the song] was kind of… you’re just a weekend hippie. Get it?” The following from the Independent, see the Telegraph for more:

Sir Paul McCartney has been asked to play a concert in Israel, 43 years after the Beatles were banned from performing in the country.

The star was approached about staging a Tel Aviv gig this September, a source close to the deal confirmed last night. The revelation was greeted with excitement in the Israeli press. Sir Paul’s spokesman said that “nothing is confirmed”, but negotiations were continuing.

McCartney, 66, and his fellow Beatles were banned from performing in Israel in 1965 when the country’s then education minister, David Zarzevski, thought that a show by the band would threaten the morals of the nation’s youth.

But this year, Israel’s ambassador to Britain, Ron Prosor, apologised during a trip to the Fab Four’s home city of Liverpool for the “misunderstanding”.

He sent letters to McCartney, his fellow surviving Beatle Ringo Starr and the families of John Lennon and George Harrison, writing: “There is no doubt that it was a great missed opportunity to prevent people like you, who shaped the minds of the generation, to come to Israel and perform.”

    all you need is apartheid doot de doot de doo, all you need is apartheid, all together now. Well, after all, Paul is the one who was born with a briefcase in his hand. I don’t know if it’s true or not, doesn’t matter… that Beatle cachet is long gone.

    Well Paul always was the pop music sell-out “day tripping” one. Don’t do it Paul! It would speak volumes to the cool-ness of the Beatles to just say “No thanks Israel.” “You missed your Beatles concert, and that’s that.” If only it was that easy to influence a billionair.

    If Paul does go, he could partially redeem himself by launching into John Lennon’s “Give Peace a Chance,” without letting them know ahead of time of course.

    Some interesting suggestions posted in the comments section about what
    he should do with this invitation and what he should play. I would suggest
    Lennon’s “Across the Universe”, because that’s where Paul’s mind is at.

    ‘, David Zarzevski, thought that a show by the band would threaten the morals of the nation’s youth’

    Morals is usually a code word for ‘sexual attitudes’. Given that the zionists had launched terror campaigns for decades against the palestinians and even the brits, and stolen their land without any compensation (while demanding the return of items stolen by the nazis) the idea that israel had any morals to corrupt is risible.

    ‘But this year, Israel’s ambassador to Britain, Ron Prosor, apologised during a trip to the Fab Four’s home city of Liverpool for the “misunderstanding”.’

    Note, theres no corresponding apology to the palestinians for the ‘misunderstanding’ theyve endured. We can see the first worlds notables are blind to the atrocities committed and endorsed by the likes of Zarzevski.

    The 60s banning of the Beatles was just a trick to fool people. From the time that the very first jukebox was installed on American soil, pop music has been a form of Zionist/Israeli “germ” warfare against Western civilization. All pop music is really Israeli. Sometimes people don’t want to know the truth.

    If Paul plays “israel” it will drive a stake through the Beatle’s heart.

    check out what Lennon had said about the state of Israel and then you’ll know the real reason the Beatles were banned from there. “threaten the morals of the youth” -now that is lol.

    If Paul DOESN’T go, he will be labeled an Anti-Semite, and his career will be ruined. Oh wait, his career is almost over anyway. Paul’s at the age where he can tell people to fuck off. Then again, Paul still can’t turn down the opportunity to make a buck.

    ” Things are going to slide in all directions
    Won’t be nothing
    Nothing you can measure anymore
    The blizzard of the world
    has crossed the threshold
    and it has overturned
    the order of the soul…”

    “Ring the bell that still can ring
    fotget your perfect offering,
    There is a crack, a crack in everything
    That’s how the light gets in…”

    “… I’ve seen the future, brother,
    IT IS MURDER”

    Leonard Cohen “The Future”, 1992

    PS: Leonard Cohen is on the International Tour right now. It very much likely that this is his last tour, considering his age.
    Some Jews in Israel , I am sure (!), would be happily elevated listening to this voice of the wise genius… Yet, there is NO ISRAEL in his planning.
    I always wander, if is it easier to die with eyes closed?
    Have an aged spoiled boy Paul McCarthy!
    Remind him, in occasion, that John Lennon once did not appear neither to get the ” prize for the achievements” , nor money in the protest to The Vietnam War. It might be, though, also in vain…

    “…there is a crack, a crack in everything
    that’s how the light comes in,
    that’s how the light comes in…”

    I reckon Paul will go. Wasn`t his first wife the daughter of a New York Jewish lawyer? Hasn`t he got a fortune of $800 million?
    Doesn`t that qualify him as one of the ruling elite?
    I will be amazed if he doesn`t go to Israel.

    everyone in the know in the music biz knows that paul is an asswipe of historic proportions. he obviously cannot keep a wife either. on top of that – he is ugly as hell.

    Isn`t it about time that hopeless old farting winbag be put out to pasture? Perhaps this clowns next tour could be called the “I love, embrace and support terrorism” concerts.

    Rubbish Stoney. The truth is, you sound like the convenional jew hater. Coming from a fool, your comment is ironic. T

    the performance was intended to be for Israel’s 60th. anniversary (an event that did not make as much news as they hoped).

    that is what Prosor the Tosser asked for – so McCartney has already waffled his way out of it.

    plenty of protest songs have been written too you know

    I hope McCartney is proud of the support that he has given to the deaths of over 1000 Palestinians
