Pearl Jam vs. The Jewish State (must watch)

In front of tens of thousands of music lovers, Pearl Jam's lead singer Eddie Vedder told the truth about Israel. In a concert at Milton Keynes Bowl in England on Friday the famed American rocker said.

“They’re looking for a reason to go across borders and take over land that doesn’t belong to them. They should get the f---out, and mind their own f---ing business…“We don’t want to give them our money. We don’t want to give them our taxes to drop bombs on children.” 

Indeed a reason to be cheerful especially when you witness the ecstatic reaction of the massive crowd. 

Seemingly, the Israelis are upset. The Jerusalem Post reported today that Ben Red, a rock disc jockey for Israel Radio’s music station, denounced Vedder.

“Eddie Vedder, your true face is finally being revealed,” Red wrote. “You are invited not to come here. I personally do not want to see you, and I will erase the Facebook page calling on bringing [Pearl Jam] to Israel, but not before I expose who you really are.”

Seemingly Ben Red  doesn’t approve an American subject’s right to oppose USA taxpayers’ money being spent on a criminal state.
