Thank you to Phil Weiss and Mondoweiss for reporting the news that we don’t get from the mainstream media here in the ‘free’ USA. I am really curious as to who, what, and why in the FIFA World Cup are so afraid of, that a talent like Mohammed Assaf is refused to perform. I applaud Shakira for supporting him and also refusing to perform. ( I did see that it looks like they have Jennifer Lopez now…. hmmm. Too bad they missed out. Lopez is OK. Assaf and Shakira would be GREAT. Maybe they can team up for a pro Palestinian concert. WOW.)
Anyway, thru your news and the education of more Americans and the rest of the world, I can feel the planet shifting just a little. I am hopeful that those of conscience in the global community can turn the tide to establish Palestine and remove the horrific and illegal Israeli occupation.
Thank you for the news and a voice.
