As an LP fan i am shocked and disappointed that they are planning to play Tel Aviv.
Millions of fans definitely feel the same thing. Tel Aviv is the Sun City of today (those who experienced the apartheid in South Africa say what happens in Palestine and Israel is much, much worse).Would LP have gone to South Africa to entertain the white-only crowd, not caring about the rest of the population? I dont think so.
Playing Israel is for people who dont have a prob with war crimes, apartheid, ethnic cleasing and crimes against humanity.In my opinion, if LP want to keep their fans, they need to very clearly say NO to all these crimes and cancel the show in Tel Aviv.
When the occupation of Palestine ends, when the Palestinian refugees are allowed to come back to their homeland (something that Israel has prevented for more than 60 years now), when the Jews and the non-Jews have equal rights and international law is respected in all its aspects, you will be more than welcome to visit the place. Until then, Israel should be a no-go zone for you, unless you are willing to be used to whitewash their crimes.

You're an idiot. The Israeli people lived there before Muslims did.
Thousands of years before.
I agree with John Chester. The Isreali people have been there much longer, and it's the Muslims that are trying to take their land from them. If they were playing for Palestine, then I would have a problem... but Israel is America's ally. There's nothing wrong with that.
I think you are totally wrong.
I live in Israel, i'm a human, a person just like you, I've never killed someone and I want to see Linkin Park in my country as same as you want to see them in your country.
I don't think you have to mix between politics and culture.
we don't do any crimes, you have to be here to know, the Palastines are not that innocent...
you better deal with your own business and not ruin our joy because you are jealous.
it is unbelieveble how flat ppl you are, and the ppl you representative.
you are a kind of ppl that is so pathetic!
kind of ppl that is so stupid, that you actually belive e-v-e-r-y t-h-i-n-g that postet on TV.
you dont have any right to judge me or any one als in my country.
germany, russia and many more country have done many more wrong things then the lies you hear today about israel.
and still linkin park play there.
if you ask me, i would be very angry on LP if they would no play in israel because of a politicly excuse.
i believe linkin park want to play ther music in israel to respect the crowd that hear ther music.
we are here to PLAY MUSIC, NOT WAR OR POLITICS!!!
LET GOD MAKE OUR MUSIC BE A BRIDGE BETWEEN US

There is much wrong with that.First of all, this is not a religious conflict, even though it is often presented as such.As i mentioned in my comments before, Muslims, Jews and Christians had lived in Palestine side by side for centuries mostly without major conflicts until the establishment of modern Israel.Now, after over 62 years since then, there are more than 7 million refugees who are not allowed to return home, because Israel does not wish to let them go back home.Tel Aviv, too, was built on ethnically cleansed Palestinian villages,many of those who originally used to live there have now been living for decades locked up in refugee camps in the Gaza Strip, for example.None of them will be allowed to go to the LP concert.They are barely allowed to get medical treatment they need, so hundreds of people have died of curable diseases, because Israel did not wish to let them live.Children in the occupied territories are malnourished, suffer from serious diseases due to constant Israeli attacks,they are denied access to education, etc.Even textbooks cannot be brought into the Gaza Strip, because Israel does not allow them in.If Palestinians are accepted to study at universities in a city they dont live in (let alone abroad), they need to get a permit from Israel to go there, and they never know if you they will be allowed to return home.In the occupied territories or in Israel, being a non-Jew, you can wake up at night to find the army getting ready to demolish your house,because you do not have a good racial profile.This is the official policy and not an exception.It harms all people who live there, regardless of their religious views.Here is an example of what the occupation looks like: www.youtube.com/watch?v=KrdsLf4n5Ug .
