Paul McCartney Says Won’t Come to Israel to Receive Wolf Music Prize

Joan Rivers supported Israel’s genocidal Operation Protective Edge operation which left 2,000 Palestinians, moms, dads, grandparents and children dead .  “You’re dead, you deserve to be be dead. Don’t you dare make me feel bad about that.”

John Lennon would’ve boycotted Israel. Roger Waters does.

The musician Paul McCartney announced Thursday that he would not come to Israel later this month to receive the Wolf Prize for Music he was awarded in February.

“It’s very flattering and I’m grateful to be chosen for the Wolf Prize for Music this year,” wrote McCartney. “It’s certainly a great honor for me to be included among the greatest artists, creators, scientists and writers of today’s history. But after reviewing my schedule I have to announce that I will not be able to arrive at the date set.”

Last month, actress Natalie Portman announced that she would not arrive in Israel to receive the Genesis Prize. The dual American-Israeli citizen said in a statement that she cancelled her arrival upon knowledge that Netanyahu was scheduled to speak at the ceremony.

Adam Sandler has sided with Howard Stern in his war of words against former Pink Floyd singer-songwriter Roger Waters. “I’m very pro-Israel,” the comedian told Stern earlier this week, via Jewish Journal. “When you go off on Roger Waters, I fucking love that you do that. I’m disgusted that they single out Israel. All those nice Israeli people are getting a ‘fuck you’ from Roger Waters. … I’m not a crazy religious, but I’m proud of being a Jew, and that’s what I am.”

Earlier this year, Stern ripped into Roger Waters for his extremely vocal support of a cultural boycott of Israel. “Where do you want the Jews to go, Roger?” he said. “You want them to go back to the concentration camps? What is it you want, fuckhead?” In an interview with Rolling Stone, Waters refused to respond in length. “I wouldn’t waste a single one of my precious breaths on that asshole,” he said. “And I just did. That was a waste of breath.”

  1. Pink Floyd is one of the FEW old bands that I can still get lost in without a fleck of pollution hindering my pleasure. Why? Because I love them but also because their frontman is a HERO not a zero.

    I heartily applaud Portman for putting herself out there as she has. I had heard a few interesting stories about her from paparazzi in the past and knew she was different from the norm. Looks good on her.

    As for Paul. We have no idea who this person really is, do we? It is good to see this but I am sure he got strength also from Portman’s strength.

    Good thing, this is paying off but when will the results be felt for the Palestinian people?

    • Yes, as for Paul, all he said was that his schedule doesn’t allow. Maybe the action is a statement, one can only wonder. He must have known that the move wouldn’t look good, [to israelmites]. And how dare someone not MAKE the time for chosen Israel?
