Spanish Politicians Call for Cancellation of Achinoam Nini Concert

JewishPress Logo

Left-wing politicians in the autonomous region of Galicia in Spain recently called on their local government to cancel an upcoming concert by Israeli singer Achinoam Nini and to boycott Israel., Shurat HaDin – Israel Law Center reports.

The Galician Left Alternative, an umbrella organization that represents the region’s third largest political bloc, went on to condemn “the employment of the Israeli singer…who has sympathy to the Zionist military.” The anti-Israel coalition’s education and cultural council has demanded that the May 21 concert be canceled because it contributes to “the colonization of Palestine and violence that the Israeli state exercises against the Palestinian people. The Palestinian people today live in a prison in their own territory, surrounded by a huge wall.”

A number of months ago, the same left-wing coalition vetoed a parliamentary resolution commemorating the Holocaust.

  1. Is he aware that the Arabs insist that inasmuch as they conquered Spain once, it is theirs forever? They are already engaged in their own reconquest of Andalusia. As a Gallego from Rande myself, I welcome our guest singer!

  2. Jay Kay says:

    I wish Israel and Palestine sort out their problems and live peacefully. Until then, problems like this will continue to happen.
