Sometimes seeing is believing. “Israeli humanitarian organization IsraAID was a source of inspiration in earthquake-battered Haiti” Sean Penn said on Monday in his keynote address at the organization’s Tel Aviv conference.

Artists have a unique role in the world. They are a bridge to other cultures. Cultural boycotts not only undermine an artist’s right to freedom of artistic expression, boycotts thwart our ability to understand each other.
Despite calls to boycott, Oscar-winning actor Sean Penn arrived in ‪‎Israel‬ as a guest of Israeli humanitarian organization IsraAID. The Israel Forum for International Humanitarian Aid, and will attend a conference on reconstruction efforts in ‪‎Haiti‬ after the 2010 earthquake.
