Pete Seeger was a big supporter of Israel. However, I am also very saddened with the way Israel is going. Some nationalistic trends are taking us in a direction that is detrimental (especially in the long-run). We have to stop vilify everyone that criticises Israel. It is neither good for our standing internationally, neither is it good for ourselves. Pete Seeger & many of his fellow folk singers have had a very pro-human approach in their music. He is a positive man. If he takes a stand, I do listen!
