Save Your Soul, Boycott Israel- Alice Walker Tells Alicia Keys Not To Perform In Tel Aviv

Singer Alicia Keys has been traveling with her Girl On Fire tour, and is set to perform July 4 at the  Nokia Arena in Tel Aviv, but according to "The Color Purple" author Alice Walker if she does she's headed straight for hell. At least that's what she's insinuating when she wrote Keys a letter that was posted on one of those boycott Israel websites, which I refuse to link to.

Walker wrote on the U.S. Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel:

“Dear Alicia Keys,
 “I have learned today that you are due to perform in Israel very soon. We have never met, though I believe we are mutually respectful of each other’s path and work. It would grieve me to know you are putting yourself in danger (soul danger) by performing in an apartheid country that is being boycotted by many global conscious artists.
“A cultural boycott of Israel and Israeli institutions (not individuals) is the only option left to artists who cannot bear the unconscionable harm Israel inflicts every day on the people of Palestine, whose major ‘crime’ is that they exist in their own land, land that Israel wants to control as its own.”
Walker isn't the only anti-Semite who is pushing the boycott Israel agenda. She joins many other celebrities including:

Brian Eno,
Roger Waters
Jean-Luc Godard
Elvis Costello
Carlos Santana
Emma Thompson
Jane Fonda
Julie Christie
Mike Leigh
Danny Glover

And most recently Stephen Hawking, to name a few.

Although people have claimed that Bruce Willis and Meg Ryan boycotted, they in fact did not.

I don't care what anyone says, if they're anti-Israel they are most definitely anti-Semitic, or supremely ignorant for failing to comprehend the true meaning of apartheid. Israel is most definitely not an apartheid state.

Walker actually believes that "American apartheid" was "less lethal than Israel's against the Palestinian people."  Right, the Israelis are out there lynching Arabs.

Don't cave Alicia!
