Palestinian Group Wants Alicia Keys to Cancel Israel Concert

By//Andrea Watson

A pro-Palestinian group is urging Alicia Keys to cancel her upcoming Israel concert.

This sounds a little too familiar. Some might recall J Lo was recently criticized for performing for the president of Turkmenistan.

As of now, Keys is scheduled to perform in Tel Aviv on July 4, and it doesn’t look like she’ll cancel. The U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation has circulated an online petition, gathering 15,600 signatures so far. The organization says most Palestinians wouldn’t be able to attend the concert due to oppression and restrictions the group face.

An open letter was sent to Keys basically comparing their struggles to apartheid and the Jim Crow era. They’re asking her to support their people by not performing. Looks like she has a tough decision on her hands.
