Eric Burdon has been forced to cancel his upcoming concert in Israel
He cancelled his scheduled appearance not for political purposes but rather for the purpose of potentially saving his own life.
Burdon has been receiving daily threats in order to intimidate and terrorize him into stopping his performance with the local group Tislam.
Days ago, Burdon met up with members of Tislam in Vienna, and told them he was under pressure from anti-Israel activists to cancel the show.His manager is now quoted as saying....
“We are under increasing pressure, including many threatening emails that we are receiving on a daily basis. I wouldn’t want to put Eric in any danger”Haven't we seen enough of violence and the threat of violence in the middle-east conflict?
I know the advocates of non-violence as a political tool including BDS tactics against Israel can join with their political opponents in denouncing the threat of violence against civilians.
We can all agree these threats serve well no side of this political debate.
