Robbie Williams Defies BDS Calls: I Want to Come Back to Israel
British pop star Robbie Williams tells excited crowd of Israelis that he can’t wait to return, ignoring the BDS pressure put on him.
Three days after arriving in Israel, British pop sensation Robbie Williams performed exuberantly before tens of thousands of Israeli fans Saturday night at Yarkon Park in Tel Aviv.
But that doesn’t mean everyone was happy about the pop star’s “Let Me Entertain You” tour coming to Israel.
Fellow British musician, Roger Waters, who has a habit of writing letters smearing Israel and urging boycott to every artist planning to perform there, took no time in doing just that with Robbie Williams.
Playing on William’s role as UNICEF’s UK ambassador and an ardent supporter of its Children in Danger campaign, Waters asserted the pop star was turning his back on Gazan children killed during last summer’s Operation Protective.
“Dear Robbie, playing this concert on May 2 would be giving your tacit support to the deaths of over 500 Palestinian children last summer in Gaza,” Waters wrote.
The 41-year-old musician, however, did not bow down to the pressure, instead expressing his excitement to the crowd at visiting Israel and playing its biggest arena.
Calling both the crowd and his time in Israel “amazing,” Williams stressed his desire to return to the Jewish state.
