BOYCOTT THOSE WHO REFUSE TO BOYCOTT

The artists who refuse to honour the cultural boycott against apartheid in Israel need a wake up call……
THEIR DVD’s, cassettes, videos and wherever else their works appear must be boycotted, perhaps then they will get the message.

Artists that have performed in Israel in the past year include…
Paul McCartney
Paul Anka
The Pet Shop Boys
Madonna
Lady Gaga
Leonard Cohen
Depeche Mode and Morrissey


Artists that are scheduled to appear this summer include…
Elton John
The Pixies
Rod Stewart
Paul Anka
Metallica
Elvis Costello

And now…. Ozzy Osbourne joins the list. So, let’s close our ears to their music and our purse-strings to their products.


BOYCOTT THOSE WHO REFUSE TO BOYCOTT!

Legendary British heavy metal rocker and former Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne is to perform in Israel in September, his official website has announced.

The performance will apparently take place on September 28, at Park Hayarkon in Tel Aviv, as part of a tour which begins in Folkstone, Britain on June 29.

Other destinations on the international tour include Moscow, Athens and Istanbul, as well as numerous stops in the United States.

Osbourne joins a rapidly expanding list of global music stars who will be performing in Israel this summer. Those set to appear include Elton John, The Pixies and Rod Stewart.

Last year, Israel hosted an array of world famous performers, including The Pet Shop Boys, Madonna, Lady Gaga, Leonard Cohen, Depeche Mode and Morrissey.

    That really sucks. I cut Letonard off. Now Ozzy! War Pigs? I thought he was THE anti-war man! I guess he’s financing his sick daughters coke habit.

    In addition, is there a list of artists who will NOT perform in Israel and are open about their views?

    I made a comment on Metallica’s facebook page about their decision to play Israel. Be careful about comments you make on FB because when you google your name, these comments come up, especially from pages you are listed as a ‘fan’,…your name and your picture together…regardless of your privacy settings.

    So who is going to boycott America for supporting their 3 bil a year habit? I’m keeping my Depeche Mode. The rest fine I’ll support a boycott. But before you do at least have the spine to write them and tell them why.

    You must remember that musicians can be largely disconnected from things due to drugs, wild lives, touring, or otherwise.

    I’d like to point out for those of you complaining that it doesn’t apply to American businesses — BDS is a strategy, not a moral tactic. It’s not being employed against America simply because it probably wouldn’t work.

    That being said I don’t know how helpful it is at this stage to start going after every pop star that performs in Israel. We need to perhaps have a few pro-Palestinian concerts or have Snoop Dogg come to Ramallah or something first. Otherwise the reaction could simply help the Zionists.

    Boycott mainstream media that lies to us about Israel. Invite neighbors over to visit–turn off the television. Watch NETWORK (1976) We live in an insane, truth-be-killed society. ReDiscover911.com
