Leonard Cohen - don't go to Israel

20 Signatures Goal: 100

Dear Leonard Cohen, Please don't go to perform in Israel, which will be seen as an endorsement of the country's genocidal policies towards the Palestinians, coming so soon after the horrendous attacks on Gaza, which left over 1300 dead, and many thousands injured. As the writers of an open letter to declared, "Your songs have been part of the soundtrack of our lives, like breathing, some of them." As they say, "You will perform for a public that by a very large majority had no qualms about its military forces' onslaught. You will perform in a state whose propaganda services will extract every ounce of mileage from your presence. They will use it to whitewash their war crimes." Leonard, please don't do this. Hey, that's no way to say goodbye!
