This girl has allowed herself to be bullied by pro Palestinian activists .
She's a singer not a politician banning singing isn't going to bring about peace
And I feel quite sure there see many Palestinians who bought tickets for her show too.
She could have made her concert and example of cultural union.
As do many other artists .

Its called freedom of expression!!! - she didn't like what the zionists were saying or doing and chose not to go there - as is her right to do.

Re: Israel experiences a cultural boycott??

Did I say it did anything ? I just think sport and music people should think twice before going to countries like this, I get cross when they go to countries that treats its gay citizens badly, that are aggressive to their neighbours etc. Lots of countries need to see the world doesn't approve.

Israel treats its gay people very well.
That is why gay Palestinians from the Gaza move to Israel .
There they can live .
In Gaza they may well end up thrown off a roof
