The queen of sweet ,sweet charity,as the saying goes charity begins at home. NOT IF YOUR EGO IS BIGGER THAN YOUR ABILITIES AND IT IS TARNISHED,STAINED,BY YOUR SELF IMPORTANCE.Then others have to go away for fear of being tainted,tarred with the same brush.”IT is time to remarket myself as a CORNflake”said he .Yet he has failed to rebrand his product as fresh new and clean,shite sticks and people have long memories .
Some several 1000 British artists pledged to boycott Israel on Saturday in reaction to what they termed “the Palestinian catastrophe,
The artists, who include Roger Waters, Brian Eno, Mike Leigh, Ken Loach, Richard Ashcroft, and others, pledged that they “will not engage in business-as-usual cultural relations with Israel.”
“We will accept neither professional invitations to Israel, nor funding, from any institutions linked to its government,” the letter read.
“Now we are saying, in Tel Aviv, Netanya, Ashkelon or Ariel, we won’t play music, accept awards, attend exhibitions, festivals or conferences, run masterclasses or workshops, until Israel respects international law and ends its colonial oppression of the Palestinians,” the letter reads.
The initiative is known as Artists for Palestine.
A new report based on testimonies of Israeli soldiers concludes the massive civilian death toll from last summer’s Israeli assault on Gaza resulted from a policy of indiscriminate fire. The Israeli veterans group Breaking the Silence released testimonies of more than 60 Israeli officers and soldiers which it says illustrate a “broad ethical failure” that “comes from the top of the chain of command.” More than 2,200 Palestinians were killed in the assault, the vast majority civilians. On Israel’s side, 73 people were killed, all but six of them soldiers. During the 50-day operation, more than 20,000 Palestinian homes were destroyed, and hundreds of thousands of people are still displaced. We hear candid video testimonies from the soldiers and speak to former Israeli paratrooper Avner Gvaryahu, director of public outreach at Breaking the Silence.
