I truly respect the following artists for canceling their performances, or refusing to play, in the Apartheid Pirate-State of Israel:
Bono, Sting, Santana, Snoop Dogg, Gil Scott-Heron, Elvis Costello, The Pixies, Gorillaz, and Klaxons.
I hope that Elton John, Rod Stewart, and Ozzy Osbourne will cancel their planned performances there.

Pixies, Gorillaz, and Klaxons Bail Out of Israeli Music Festival
June 7, 2010
It's an active month for political protests from musicians: Following the Rage Against the Machine–led boycott of Arizona, several acts — namely, the Pixies, Gorillaz, and Klaxons — have canceled their appearances at Tel Aviv's June 9 Pic.Nic festival. The bands have released no statements, but the festival's promoters are up-front about the cancellations being related to Israel's May 30 raid on a Gaza-bound humanitarian-aid flotilla. Last month, Elvis Costello canceled a show in Israel as well.
