It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll – Red Hot Chilli Peppers at the Wailing Wall

Gilad Atzmon – gilad.co.uk September 10, 2012

American legendary band Red Hot Chili Peppers has now reacted to the BDS call to cancel their scheduled concert in Tel Aviv. As they landed this morning in the Holy Land, the band hurried straight to the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem – the band will also, I’m sure, visit Yad Vashem and the Museum of Jewish Tolerance.
By now I’d expect that some within the BDS movement would have gathered the obvious: that ‘show-business’ like banking, media and so much other ‘business’ is controlled by tribal interests. Show-biz, as the Red Hot Chili Peppers today proved, is just a continuation of Hasbara.
Understanding this might just help BDS enthusiasts around the world achieving a little more next time.
