Brian Eno And Gaza

Brian Eno celebrated his 70s birthday yesterday. His decision not to perform at a more or less unimportant pop festival in Berlin later this year was because the organizers had accepted a small amount of money (allegedly €500) from the Israeli Embassy in Berlin.

Eno’s decline came couple days before the massacre in Gaza. Sixty plus dead Palestinians and thousands injured on their March of Return on memorial day of Nakba (altogether 109 or so during these weeks of new protests) are hard to explain by Israel’s hasbara such as, “any individual approaching the fence is a terrorist” and “Hamas is paying and abusing women and children, even old men in wheel chairs for approaching the fence.”

This might turn out to be another Mavi Marmara Flotilla raid moment. Worldwide outrage, devastating for Israel’s reputation.

Eno’s thoughts about his BDS driven decision can be seen here.
