Alanis is Canadian for courage

Legal Insurrection

This is courage week for Canada.

First, a very strong statement of support for Israel at the U.N.

Now, unlike Stevie Wonder, who cancelled a pro-Israel concert under mild pressure from the U.N. and anti-Israel groups, Alanis Morissette, the Canadian singer, has arrived in Israel for a concert despite calls from the lunatic and vicious anti-Israel BDS movement for her to cancel.

Via Arutz Sheva:

Supporters of the cultural boycott of the State of Israel have targeted Canadian singer Alanis Morissette over her scheduled performance in the Jewish state, calling on her to “shun Tel Aviv.”

A seven-time Grammy winner, Morissette is set to give a concert in Tel Aviv on Monday, for the first time since she performed in Israel since 2000, The Jewish Chronicle (JC) reported.

The Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel, however, is urging her to cancel at the last minute, due to the recent Gaza conflict and ongoing political situation.

“We would find it especially disturbing should you choose to play in Israel given its recent onslaught on Gaza,” the campaign group said in an open message to the vocal artist. “Palestinian civil society groups are calling on artists to shun Tel Aviv in the same way that South African activists called on artists to boycott Sun City.”

The comparison to South Africa is more of the same vile and false propaganda meant to delegitimize Israel, which is multi-racial; roughly half of Israeli Jews are from or the descendents of Jews from Arab lands expelled after the creation of Israel.

    Stevie Wonder is owned. He’s just obeying his white mas’r Demnazi racist Jew-haters.

    Mild pressure? S.W. Could have claimed he didn’t see the memo.

    I stand with Israel.

    Good for her!

    To compare her to Stevie Wonder is a real stretch.
    And to compare Tel Aviv to Sun City is nothing short of moronic.

    Wait, don’t get me wrong, I’m not into identity politics; I just like singer chicks like Laurie Anderson, Suzanne Vega, Annie Lennox and the Indigo Girls — just saying…

    Good for Alanis. I’m surprised, since Madonna was her mentor. Well done girlie even if you do sing like a cat on fire.
