" Dear Mashrou3 Leila,
We, at the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) wish to salute you for your principled decision not to perform with RHCP, a band that insists on entertaining apartheid and violating the cultural boycott of Israel.
You have set a precedent and set the bar high for others to follow, and you have sent a message that bands who play in Israel should not be allowed to benefit from our markets. Today you prioritized your principles and commitment to human rights over immediate personal gains for your band. It is indeed rare to see this kind of altruistic commitment, and we thank you for it."
