Simply Red’s frontman Mick Hucknall slams BDS as he arrives in Israel

Posted on June 14, 2016 in Melman Research |

“With their hundreds of millions of fans, artists and pop icons have enormous power to influence public opinion across the world and are increasingly becoming the weapon of choice in the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) campaign against the Jewish homeland.” (Lana Melman)

This is exactly what happened to Simply Red’s frontman Mick Hucknall, who has a scheduled concert in Israel today. Just days before his show, cultural boycott activists used their so common tool to intimidate the British singer, songwriter with photoshopped splashes and memes, pressuring him to cancel his show in Tel Aviv.


Hucknall, not only arrived in Tel Aviv and shared it publicly on his official Twitter account but he also openly slammed BDS in the most amazing way:


Simply Red, the British soul and pop band that has sold more than 50 million albums since the mid 1980s, last played in Israel in 1992.

Kudos to the band to stand up and Liberate Art!
