As the anti-Israel boycott movement is trying to prevent famed rocker band Bon Jovi from playing in Israel, Israelis are livin’ on a prayer and would feel shot through the heart if the band decides not to perform. Support Bon Jovi on Facebook!
In a statement prepared for a press conference in Israel in June, Bon Jovi said, “We’ve toured around the world performing over 2,900 concerts in more than 50 countries and today I am excited to announce that for the first time ever we are performing in Tel Aviv. See you on October 3.”
Upset by this decision, the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) announced a campaign to prevent Bon Jovi from playing in Israel. The petition says, “World renowned band, Bon Jovi, is scheduled to perform in Israel on October 3rd. We ask the members of the band, Jon Bon Jovi, David Bryan, and Tico Torres, to reconsider their concert in apartheid Israel, until Israel complies with international law and respects the rights of the indigenous Palestinian people.”
This petition has nothing to do with the rights of Palestinians; rather, it uses blatant lies and anti-Semitism to condemn Israel. We will not stand idly by. United with Israel needs YOU to help counter the anti-Israel PACBI petition and support Bon Jovi’s decision to perform in Israel!
