Creative Community for Peace (CCFP) launched to counter cultural boycott efforts

An influential group of US entertainment industry executives has for the first time launched an organization to counter cultural boycott efforts against Israel. Creative Community For Peace (CCFP) pledges to use a wide range of measures to bolster the resolve of artists who sign contracts to perform in or travel to Israel and then face calls from various “boycott groups” to cancel their trips. The newly created site (www.creativecommunityforpeace.com) offers an impressive array of video clips of artists performing in Israel, a photo gallery of celebrities who have toured Israel, a “newsstand” with topical articles about artists, celebrity reflections on Israel and educational information on issues of democracy and human rights in the country.
