B’nai B’rith International has issued the following statement:
B’nai B’rith International commends singer Alicia Keys for going ahead with her planned July 4 concert in Tel Aviv and not bowing to the pressure from various organizations and coalitions urging her to cancel the performance.
Many groups and individuals contacted Keys urging her to cancel the sold out performance in the face of alleged mistreatment of the Palestinians by Israel.
Keys has courageously taken a stand against the international Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions campaign and we hope that her performance and music will act as a unifier rather than divider.
See where B'nai B'rith International stands on the issues.
