Cassandra Wilson cancels Holon concert, joining artistic boycott of Israel – Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News

“Her first explanation was that she read recently about Israel’s intention to attack Iran and she feared for her safety and the safety of her people,” said Telem. He recommended she speak with official agencies in Israel and the United States to inquire about whether there were any official travel warnings, rather than relying on media reports. He also said such warnings have been in the media for months, including well before she signed the contract to travel to Israel. Wilson later admitted that her decision stemmed from a desire to support Palestinians’ civil rights, Telem said. Telem said he asked Wilson whether she actively supported the Palestinian cause before pro-Palestinian activists approached her about canceling tonight’s concert; Wilson had no answer, he said. For legal reasons, Wilson refused to disclose the names of the groups that approached her, said Telem.
