Dear Bob, Imagine how would you feel if you are invited to Libya by Qaddafi for a concert. Imagine that your photos with Qaddafi are published. You and a bloody dictator. When you come to Israel for a concert, there will be no difference. Remember 300 children killed in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. Remember 3 children tjat just were killed yesterday. Remember how they raided humanitarian aid ships in international waters. Remember how they killed activists on board. Please join the boycott.
