ROBBIE WILLIAMS PLAYS TEL AVIV..
Robbie Williams, one of the worlds greatest showman, arrived in Israel ahead of his concert this evening in Tel Aviv. Accompanied by his wife and an entourage of over 50, the singer landed in Ben Gurion Airport aboard his private jet a day and a half early, allowing plenty of time to see the best of the holy land’s sites before he’s due to entertain us. Showing the same two fingers up to those who feel Israel should be boycotted as Sir Paul McCartney, Ringo Star, Tom Jones, The Rolling Stones, Beyonce, Madonna . One Direction and Taylor Swift etc etc. who have ALL played Israel in the last 12 months making a mockery at the pathetic criticism by Pink Floyd's frontman Roger Waters made plain he wished the singer weren’t here, attacking Williams for performing in Tel Aviv, claiming his decision “gives succor to Netanyahu and his regime, and endorses their deadly racist policies.” Waters is a relentless critic of Israel. Also playing Israel are Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Elton John, and Leonard Cohen. You'll notice these are all A list names. As Robbie Williams said: " Boycott, what boycott?"
When rock legend Paul McCartney came to Israel, he was, at least to some extent, taking his life in his hands. Not because of Israel's sometimes precarious security situation, but because he was threatened by BDS (boycott, divest, and sanction) anti-Israel groups. “I got death threats, but I'm coming anyway,” the singer was quoted as saying by Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs researcher Adam Shay.
“I got explicit death threats, but I have no intention of surrendering. I refuse to cancel my performances in Israel,” Shay quoted McCartney as saying.
The former Beatle is not alone.
Dozens of other artists who schedule dates in Israel are lobbied, bullied, threatened, and even attacked at concerts by anti-Israel groups who are bent on isolating Israel culturally, as well as economically. Many artists, said Shay, claimed that their web sites have been attacked by hackers right before their Israeli concerts.
