"Desperate" False Claim by Israel's Apartheid Twitter Channel

The state of apartheid Israel's official twitter falsely claimed the US band The Killers would play in Tel Aviv last month.  The Killers never performed in Israel, and there is no indication that they ever booked a concert in Israel. 

Numerous false claims have been made in the past, including that Pearl Jam, Prodigy, U2, Coldplay, Jennifer Lopez, Adele and more would play in violation of the cultural boycott call by Palestinian civil society.  This call was made in 2004 and has received immense support.

Just a few of the artists who have decided to respect the boycott of Israel include Roger Waters, Stevie Wonder, Peter Brook, Zakir Hussain, Cat Power, Mireille Mathieu, John Michael McDonagh, Yardsbirds, Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo school of Medicine, Stanley Jordan, Cassandra Wilson and many more.

Israel's desperate false claims only serve to show how much effort is made to cover up settler-colonialism, racism, segregation, and doomed apartheid policies.
