Virtually attacked and abused by BDS

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.

Operation stop Alanis Morissette from performing in the racist state of #Israel

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:

“Deaf, dumb and blind” Sweet

Apparently Morissette isn’t a REAL artist.

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.

Welcome.

During and following the ‘Pillar of Defense’ operation in Gaza, the international media had Israel in flames.  Ariel Zinger, an Israeli graphic designer made a new and more relevant version of his info graphic  comparing the Syrian war with Pillar of defense alongside with a simple question: Is Syrian citizens blood cheaper?

Introducing: world hypocrisy

 

How come there was so much international intervention in a mere 8 days of war while not half of the resources spent on High-profile Gaza, was dedicated to heavily distressed Syria?

The last 7 days in Israel have been hell on earth.
I don’t think any of you can judge or imagine what it’s like living here;

  • Repeated sirens
  • Home Front Command instructions to remain  in protected areas
  • Hamas’s takeover attempts of television broadcasts and their distribution of Horror Videos
  • All TV programs cancelled and only the news is on
  • Everyday cultural events cancelled along with almost empty streets

Today around 12 PM a massive explosion was heard in the streets of Tel Aviv, my city.
explosive charge was placed on a bus and exploded after the terrorist managed to escape.
Yes, Dozens of people are killed in Gaza as well. It’s true. It doesn’t mean that me, my family, my friends and my neighbors are now  free to be murdered.
Not a person in the world could or should live like this.
World, help us – STOP THE TERROR!
Tomorrow Tel Aviv will be occupied (Ha Ha) by thousands of Red Hot Chili Peppers fans!
A moment before that happens, Israeli DJ Noy Alooshe releases  a Mega-Mash-Up which unites some of the biggest international artists who preformed on Israeli stages recently,  in spite of BDS threats and harassments.
Rockn’Roll Baby!
