    Their decision will be an interesting one, for I believe there is growing concern in the UK about the Israeli Occupation and its massive human rights abuses. The band is going to have to weigh up very carefully which way the wind is blowing on this one. Mick Jagger is a pragmatic guy so I don't expect him to make a decision based on the rights and wrongs of the Occupation. Commercial interests are what drive him, but he wouldn't want to be found supporting the status quo just at the moment it comes under attack. Given the anti-war movement in the UK right now, as well as the upswell of revulsion over the Occupation, so as not to cause offence to anyone, I reckon he and the band will cite security reasons for pulling out nearer the date.
