    It is the zenith of bullying to threaten performers if they entertain in Israel. Shame SHAME shame on these bullies. Where is the love in the world...look to Israel for democracy, for fairness, love and caring. Take their perspective of how to be a contributing member of society. Their are no guns or rocks in the hands of Israeli children...but books and creative endeavors in all fields...music, art and science. What's in the hands of muslim children who continually listen to hate filled tirades against the Jewish people...these muslim children are taught to destroy rather than to build. I hope Tom Jones plays in Israel as he 'd hoped to and planned to. These bullies and thugs must be rebuked in every instance of the hate filled efforts to threaten any artist wishing to go to Israel.
