BDS ‘BULLIES’ VIRTUALLY ATTACK TOM JONES

Still another ‘has-been’ plans to perform in Israel next month, but not without the BDS Movement being demonised by zion ….

“Performing in Tel Aviv today is like performing in South Africa during the height of the days of apartheid,” said one of the boycott organizers.

As of now, Jones is not caving to the pressure and did not cancel his performance, as other artists did in recent years.

Tom Jones target of BDS pressure, Israeli support

Welsh singer’s scheduled performance in Israel sees fierce online battle between BDS activists, Israeli Consulate in New York

*

In exactly one month, singer Tom Jones is expected to take the stage at Tel Aviv‘s Nokia Arena. But behind the scenes an online battle is being waged between anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) activists, who are pressuring the Welsh singer to cancel his performance in Israel, and Israel supporters who express their encouragement and love for the singer.

A group of British BDS activists are circulating a petition calling on Jones to boycott Israel and cancel his show. The petition was already signed by more than 1,000 internet users.

“Performing in Tel Aviv today is like performing in South Africa during the height of the days of apartheid,” said one of the boycott organizers.

As of now, Jones is not caving to the pressure and did not cancel his performance, as other artists did in recent years.

Yet to ensure that the 73-year-old singer, famous for hit songs such as “Delilah”, “It’s Not Unusual” and “What’s New Pussycat”, will not surrender to the pressure, another online campaign was launched: During the weekend, Consul for Public Affairs at the Israel Consulate in New York Gil Lainer sent an e-mail to thousands of Jewish and Israeli hasbara activists, and asked them to send Jones encouraging messages and support his decision to perform in Israel.

Lainer’s e-mail, titled “It’s not unusual to be loved by Israel”, read: “Over the past few weeks, Tom Jones has become the latest victim of a fringe campaign pushing for a boycott of Israel, which bullies artists and academics from coming to Israel. It is time to tell Tom Jones that no music fan should be punished because of the agenda of online bullies. We should send positive messages of love and support to tom Jones on his Facbook and Twitter pages, with the hashtag #Israel LovesTomJones.”

    Tom Jones is so pathetic that no one cares about him anywhere, except Israel, apparently.
    It’s not as if he is one of the top, in demand acts in the world.
    Israel is scrapping the bottom of the barrel for entertainment.

    I’m sure he needs the money.
    Why someone as old as he still needs to have his ego stroked is beyond me.
    Dido for McCartney and Madonna as well.

    Jones must be really hard up for a gig. He might lip sink to boot.

    When you are APPROVED by GOD, you can do no wrong.
    When you are doing GOD’S work for him (He needs help?)
    nothing is TOO FAR.

    Tom Jones is not the sort of person to hold political views.

    What should happen is that the BDS momvement should pay the performers without political conscience the fee they would stand to lose by not performing.

    Obviously this could result in a bidding war, which means the Israelis would have to pay more to see him if he accepted, so there would still be a partial victory.

    Hope he dosen’t sing Sex Bomb, just in case the members of the IDF take it as a direct order.

    Fred is right. What most of this comes down to is money. The ones that sing to the zionist colonists for their supper do it to get paid. But if the BDS movement starts paying all the canaries who are asked to sing for the zionazis, then more canaries will just start lining up to get paid.

    There is a reason why the zionists have all the power in the world that they have. They have money, are willing to spend that money, and they have unity. They think in terms of their own tribe as a whole against the rest of the world. They do not think in terms of themselves individually. And THAT is the real secret to their success and power. Unity. Them against the world. Working all together as all for one. For zionist Jews only. That is the thing the Arabs have never had. Unity. And that is the reason Arabs keep getting their asses kicked by their enemies.

    The first thing a zionist Jew asks about any thing is…”is it good for the Jews?” If its good for them (zionist Jews) as a whole they all put their full support into it and that includes their MONEY.

    Fred, I’m with you. But the BDS movement does not have the funds to do that. And the rest of the world is not united enough in this cause to part with their money to get the job done. They might part with their time but not with their money.

    The zionist colonists who occupy Palestine are willing to for their own cause. And so are their minions they have stationed all around the earth.

    As long as this is the hard cold fact the zionist apartheid racist state of israel will stand just as it stands today.

    Its really telling that in this day and age human kind should have to be paid NOT to support apartheid, genocide, and ethnic cleansing.

    Shows human kind has not evolved much in all our time on this earth.
