The series of boycotting to foreign artists is back again, this time with the Rock band Guns N’ Roses.
“Campaign to Boycott Supporters of Israel in Lebanon” An organization who started recently a campaign against Guns N’ Roses, claiming that the band performed the national “Israeli” anthem last year during their concert. This is not the first time that CBSIL starts a campaign against a foreign artist who performed in Israel, mentioning Lara Fabian , Gad El Maleh, Placebo, Red Hot Chili Peppers and many others.
On their facebook event, CBSIL is trying to use somehow a psychological explanation on why we shouldn’t support Guns N’ Roses; Such as “Is this Lebanon The Great?” “Don’t buy tickets for a band who supports a country that took your houses and made you refugees” (Last time I checked, I was still in Lebanon and Free at my own house).
When will these people stop being ignorant, and start accepting the fact that if we’re to boycott artists who performed in Israel, we won’t be having any international performances whatsoever!??
Fine, they want to boycott, let it be! I’m sure few would support them, but crossing line to actually threaten the artists or talk shit about them, that is something I won’t shut up about! Lebanon is literally dying to have great summers, and every year some douchebags try to start some kind of propaganda so they could be heard! Well guess what, people are laughing at you, and people will keep on laughing at you until you grow brains in this tiny head of yours and start accepting facts that you can’t change!
I’m against this campaign, against this organization, and against every single person who thinks that boycotting Guns N’ Roses will make any difference or simply satisfy their own believes!
I would really like to know what you think! Share your thoughts.
