I have an Idea! let’s all bully the hell out of an artist so that he will do whatever we believe in, regardless of his own opinion!
I honestly believe that this is what goes through BDS followers’ minds when they go on an “operation stop a random artist from performing in Israel”.
Once again artists who are scheduled to perform in Israel are going through a virtual brutal and unrestrained attack which is basically just like holding a gun to their head forcing them to follow a belief who’s not theirs.
This time, Alanis Morissette is the victim.
Morissette, a very loved artist in Israel since 1990’s, is due to play in Tel Aviv on December 3rd, and the show has been sold out for weeks now.
Well, everyone is pretty excited about it. That is, except the BDS movement activists who as usual are doing whatever they can to make Alanis either too scared or too confused to perform and by “whatever they can” I mean cursing, threatening, bullying and abusing her official Twitter and Facebook accounts:
So here is just another thought for you Alanis:
you are welcomed here in Israel.
By deciding to perform you will join artists like Madonna, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Guns and roses, Cirque du Soleil and many others who chose to stay loyal to their fans in face of threats.
Who separate arts from politics and truth from popular lies and misconceptions.
Who truly believe in peace.
