I'm a kid who grew up listening to you in Beirut, Lebanon and you inspired me to start the first punk band in Beirut. But the context we grew up in was way different...while you were singing about chemical warfare, we watched cluster bombs and white phosphorus fall on our cities. While you were having fun stealing people's mail, Israel was stealing people's land. When you were freaking out about Governor Jerry Brown, we had to deal with mass murderers like Ariel Sharon. The boycott isn't as "solid" as you say, but the oppressed, the Palestinians, have called for it. By playing apartheid Israel despite the boycott call, you are telling them that you don't respect their goals or aspirations. Solidarity with the oppressed doesn't mean telling the oppressed what's best for them, but helping them in any way you can. Jello, please, don't be a chickenshit conformist, don't go chant "Israel Uber Alles" in Tel Aviv. Heed the call of the oppressed, for if you, of all people don't, who will?
