  1. Why is this here – is there a serious effort to call for Cirque du Soleil to not perform in Israel? Or what?

  2. Hi Arieh, thanks for writing. BDS activists like to use the occasional decisions of artists not to perform in Israel as “evidence” of the supposed success and popularity of the BDS campaign. Logical then that those of us who know the truth should be highlighting and celebrating the far larger number of acts who do choose to come to Israel. Stay tuned for many more such posts!
