Elvis Costello and Carlos Santana have decided to boycott Israel over their treatment of Palestinians and settlement policies. What a hero!
But why did they sign contracts to perform in Israel to begin with? Were they not aware of the Middle East conflict prior to signing the contract?
I have the suspicion that they signed because they couldn't care less about settlements, Palestinians or Gaza. Once the announcement of their trips took place, they must have gotten the usual threats from the members of the peace loving religion and their ignorant counterparts in the West. Being as courageous as cheap cameras, they folded as one.
