Elton John Performs in Israel

Pictures here: "'Ain't gonna stop me from coming here, baby': Elton John performs in Israel after string of other artists cancel appearances."

The People's Cube adds its two rubles, "Rock'n'Roll Board of Compliance Disciplines Elton John":
Leaders of the international Rock'n'Roll community voiced their outrage today over the news that one of their own, who they always thought was a dependable degenerate extraordinaire, turned out to be a double agent, possibly working for the Reactionary Conservative Cabal Internationale.

Sir Elton John, who had been recently put on probation for singing at Rush Limbaugh's wedding, violated his parole and defied the progressive community by flying to Israel, where he played Thursday night to a crowd of 50,000 screaming occupiers of Palestine at a Tel Aviv stadium, thus breaking the international blockade aimed at sensory deprivation and cultural disorientation of the Zionist entity.

While the more disciplined rockers like Carlos Santana, Elvis Costello, and The Pixies obediently canceled their concerts for Jews in compliance with the above directive, the soon-to-be ex-star Elton John told the Zionist audience those cancellations "ain't gonna stop me from playing here, baby." According to one informant, "non-person John then put on sunglasses of the color of the Israeli flag, and aggravated his treasonous rhetoric by adding, 'We do not cherry-pick our consciences,' before hitting the opening chords of his 1972 hit 'Crocodile Rock.'"

I think you have to give Elton John a lot of credit for building a dialogue. Instead of building walls he is building bridges. Boycotts almost always lose in the long run and gain very little whereas what Elton John, and others like him, are doing will produced a better understanding between individuals.
Kudos to Elton for being his own person and not being a follower like the others.
