Lorde may cancel Israel gig
    2017-12-28  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

LORDE says she may cancel a concert in Tel Aviv after reading an open letter from fans.

The letter starts “We’re two young women, one Jewish, one Palestinian ... we feel strongly about this.”

They argue the concert would show support for Israel’s occupation of Palestine.

Lorde says she has been speaking to various people about what she should do.

Lorde’s June concert in Israel was brought into question by two fans from her home country of New Zealand.

Justine Sachs, who is Jewish, and Palestinian Nadia Abu-Shanab wrote an open letter to the singer saying: “A performance in Israel sends the wrong message. Playing in Tel Aviv will be seen as giving support to the policies of the Israeli government, even if you make no comment on the political situation.”

The letter comes after Donald Trump’s controversial decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, which sparked protests across the Middle East.
