#BDS: GLOBAL CALL TO BOYCOTT THE INTERNATIONAL HARP CONTEST IN #ISRAEL
"The International Harp Contest in Israel is NOT the place to play my harp. I won't apply for it. I don't want any part of apartheid!
It is essential for Israel to maintain the elegant facade of philharmonic concerts, chamber music ensembles, and gatherings of sophisticated harpists. Covering up the brutal occupation in the West Bank, the slow genocide in Gaza, and the multiple violations of International Law in easier when a veil of eliteness is donned. The denial of the rights of the Palestinian refugees to seek compensation or to return to their own property is ignored. The legalized discrimination against Arabs with Israeli IDs is hidden from young harpists who are misled into thinking they must add "Israel" to their resume."
