Dionne Warwick won’t buckle to BDS pressure

(JNS.org) American singer Dionne Warwick said last week that she will not cancel a concert in Israel despite pressure from Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement activists. “Art has no boundaries,” said a statement released on Warwick’s behalf, coming just a day after singer Lauryn Hill announced the cancellation of her own scheduled concert in Israel. Warwick’s statement said the singer would “never fall victim to the hard pressures of Roger Waters, from Pink Floyd, or other political people who have their views on politics in Israel.”

“Waters’s political views are of no concern to Ms. Warwick, as she holds her own unique views on world matters….If Ms. Warwick had an objection to performing in Israel, no offer would have been entertained and no contract would have been signed,” the statement added.
