Jewish singer Matisyahu defies "the new Nazis" at Spanish music festival

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Jewish singer Matisyahu was invited to sing at a Spanish music festival, then disinvited, then reinvited, all because anti-Israel BDS activists objected to his presence.

After an international backlash, festival organizers and even the Spanish government apologized, and Matisyahu's performance went ahead.

The anti-Semites didn't accept defeat, though:

Many showed up at Matisyahu's performance waving giant Palestinian flags.

It didn't faze him: He sang his song "Jerusalem" anyway despite the efforts of the new Nazis to silence him.

I cannot understand the mentality of these losers who go to a show that they know they will hate.

Europe fell almost 5% today. Europe’s financial collapse and the collapse of their socialist hate machine is pending.

Oil was as low as 37.70 today – have fun with that one alberta-notley you enn-dee-pee nazi pig!!!

Many artists become popular not for their music but for their politics.

The BDS lobby is nothing but bullying. Good for him to sing his freedom loud.

For all of us to join him while we still can.

Kudos to this singer for defying the Nazi Thugs! More of this is required if we are to prevent our world from descending into hatred and chaos!

Good song! I think I’ll check more of his stuff out. Good on him singing Jerusalem down at the anti-Semite left; the irony is, that as a reggae singer who is Jewish, he is probably left wing himself. I wonder how much air-play he gets on the CBC?

Nice to see a Jew stand up to Islamic thugs. Anti Israel is just another form of antisemitism.

It sounded like a good tune to me. Interesting; some people’s definition of a Peace concert…
