What. The. Hell?
Two New Zealanders are being sued for allegedly convincing Lorde to cancel her performance in Israel.
Jewish New Zealander Justine Sachs and Palestinian New Zealander Nadia Abu-Shanab wrote an open letter to the Kiwi pop sensation asking for her to boycott her Israeli tour dates.
The two argued the concert would show support for Israel’s occupation of Palestine.
An Israeli legal rights group called Shurat HaDin said it is suing the two Kiwis.
Dear Israel – this is outrageous!
The Daily Blog was the first blog to ask Lorde to boycott your country, the bloody Spinoff just jumped on board our wagon a day later.
You don’t want to sue them, you want to sue us!
They are a hipster middle class blog that sucks up to banal TV culture while having the pretension of an angry under grad feminist. Suing them gives them far more credit than they deserve.
You should be suing us instead! It’s unfair to give The Spinoff the privilege of being singled out when we despise what you do to the Palestinian people so much more than they do.
Your brutal, racist, hate baiting war crimes against the Palestinian people demands that any artist worth any credibility should shun you like the cultural lepers you are.
Look, we even called on WOMAD to dump one of your pretend artists from their line up, so surely if you are going to start suing anyone in NZ, it really should be us.
I hope you can find it in your hearts to include us in your bullshit legal fuckwittery.
