Pop star Lorde said in an statement it is the “right decision at this time” to  cancel  a summer concert in Israel.

The singer, 21, said that she educated herself about Israel before booking the June concert announced a week ago but that “I didn’t make the right call on this one.”

In a statement distributed on social media and by her booking agency, Lorde wrote: “i’ve received an overwhelming number of messages and letters and have had a lot of discussions with people holding many views, and i think the right decision at this time is to cancel the show. i pride myself on being an informed young citizen, and i had done a lot of reading and sought a lot of opinions before deciding to book a show in tel aviv, but I’m not too proud to admit i didn’t make the right call on this one. tel aviv, it’s been a dream of mine to visit this beautiful part of the world for many years, and i’m truly sorry to reverse my commitment to come play for you. i hope one day we can all dance.

Lorde announced the cancellation after pro-Palestinian fans in her native New Zealand criticized her. Israeli concert organizers announced the cancellation Sunday night and said ticket sales would be refunded.

Israel’s Culture Minister Miri Regev urged Lorde to reconsider her decision in a statement issued Sunday night after Israeli news reports that the concert would be cancelled.

“Lorde, I expect you to be a ‘pure heroine’ like the title of your first album. A pure heroine of culture, void of any foreign political considerations, not to mention delusional ones,” Regev said.

The New Zealand Jewish Council responded to the cancellation by its local music icon.

“We are deeply disappointed that Lorde has succumbed to a small but loud group of extremist bullies. Boycotts of Israel will not lead to peace. Those who advocate them are not interested in negotiations between the two sides to this conflict or a two-state solution,” spokesperson for the Council, Juliet Moses, said.

“By cancelling her show, Lorde has sided with those who support the isolation and demonization of the one Jewish state in the world. She has ignored the moderate voices, including the vast majority of Jewish Kiwis, who believe in dialogue and co-existence, and the leading musicians like Radiohead, Nick Cave, Guns N Roses and Justin Bieber who have performed in Tel Aviv in the last year. She will still be performing in Russia, but no one accuses her of complicity with Putin, the occupation of the Crimea or chemical warfare in Syria,” Moses also said.

Producer Eran Arieli in a post Sunday night on Facebook apologized to fans and said: “I was naive to think an artist of her age could handle that pressure.”


He added: “It’s important to me that the end of the day we will thank her for considering us and giving us the opportunity in the first place, and also apologize to her, she doesn’t deserve all the shit she’s been through in the last week since the announcement. The last thing she needs on her comeback tour is the army of globalist anti-Semites weighing down on her head.”

Following her announcement of a Tel Aviv concert date in June on Monday, New Zealanders Nadia Abu-Shanab and Justine Sachs — the former Palestinian and the latter Jewish — wrote an open letter on Thursday on the website The Spinoff saying that Lorde’s scheduled performance in Israel “sends the wrong message.”

“Playing in Tel Aviv will be seen as giving support to the policies of the Israeli government, even if you make no comment on the political situation,” they wrote.

Sachs, who goes by the nickname “Notorious Fat Jew” is a fan of Lorde, on Monday told the Hebrew-language Walla news website that she was surprised at the success of her campaign.

“This reached much further than I imagined. We asked Lorde to not break the boycott and to not support the occupation of Palestinian lands, the destruction of Palestinian lands, homes and lives and I am proud of her brave response that testifies that she has an open progressive mind, is concerned about social justice,” Sachs told Walla

  1. Why Asian women worship white men

    All marketing are subjected for review. should you want approval, Then do not phone message us or delete them before 48hrs of post time. submission moves are limited to text based posts. You may include links to newsworthy items within that post along with your analysis thailand women on how it relates to the Asian male experience. This is to entice the exchange of ideas between us, as compared to merely commenting on the world around us.

    No outrage porn or unproductive whining/minging/salt farming in top level posts or comments.

    uncover whites who think they superior above Asians. neglect them. You may feel unjusted and you want to belittle them but you just wasting your time. If you want to capture extreme action against a bigot, Do what shades of black do: Beat her up. however, You just wasting your time.

    Stop pandering to white humans. White traveling is dangerous bland and often repeat the same racist jokes “scaled-down penis, “Asians are bad driver, “Asians use up dogs, “Drop a bomb on okazaki, japan”

    Don play in concert. contact them ignorant and then ignore them.

    There are Asian girls that only date whites. Ignore them and move ahead.

    Date Asian women who live in Asian concaves as oppose to Asians living in a purely white town. these less Westernized.

    If it makes you feel any better:

    All empires fall and rise. White America what was once hailed as the best is now filled with obese, Dumb drinkers. In a iteration or two, People looks at Americans as being fat and obese, very much how people look at British people as being ugly with bad teeth. White isn’t cool.

    White becomes a section. reject birthday across America, Canada and western world. Brown people and Asians are having lots of kids ought.

    The rise of China and south korea. Money buys a better life style. future generations of Asians will be taller and stronger which levels the playing field whites no longer have a monopoly of being tall. mexico has a media complex churching out k pop and k drama. in the coming years, Being Asian is a “chilled” idea.

    (You can argue that being Asian is already cool to white people hence why white guys get Asian girlfriends and Asian tattoos and white people loving sushi)Also many asian girls go for white to rebel against their parents.

    Also they get pushed towards whites this can white friends.

    It clear none of us here would date a whitewashed asian who thought i’d date a white guy, It not in anybody best interest, And it wouldn it called seeing, it might called tolerating.

    Those Asian women trying to move to an advaced status will hit a wall, Because nobody really aspects them because all they did was marry a white guy, She had it easy. And some white girls/womans might be jealous mainly because age a lot faster and talk shit about the whitewashed asian girl/woman, Since women desire to gossip a lot. Those fake feminist asian female is still operating within white patriarchy domain, Their whole goal isn opportunity, But to be servants in your white men, Which finally isn what a feminist even is.

    naturally, It doesn make any difference. Those asian female who belittle asian guys will suffer the consquences in due course. they’ll have a half asian son who will have identity problem, A half asian girl who is actually slutty, A white husband who loves her but doesn really see her as you actually, And those passive economical microagression till she dies will take a toll. Also how to approach asian people staring at her/whispering about her. Seeing how she is younger and her husband looks really old or visiting die soon, Means that she will spend her recent years alone. And the rise of Asians can offer her a headache, seeing asian asian couple, finding out white girls drooling over asian guys, Seeing the white supremacy she spent her lifetime worshipping and seeing the asians she bash rising. at the conclusion, The ball is in their own court.

    but that’s up to her, i believe. It a very indirect link with hypnosis. The white man has hypnotized Asian women to believe in a false dream, The america Dream. We must learn to hypnotize to gain back cultural and social power. Judo is the Asian form of self-hypnosis. several, It all goes back to the art of War. Don beat them, Lead people today into your frame. through the podcast, Scott Adams considers the genius of why Donald Trump is rising in polls. People are confused given that think that he being a politician and they take what he says too seriously, but usually he is just using hypnotist strategies. no policies even matter; It how you give people unusual feelings.

    If some party cracker mocks you for small penis, Take his arm and pull it towards your crotch and tell him to measure his facts. regardless of his response, you can either call him out for being homophobic or pin/throw him using the arm you holding.

    “Asians are bad individuals, obviously, But only the the ones who don need to drive due to superior the bus. And vibrant man can jump.

    “Drop a bomb on asia” if you can possibly pull that off yourself, steer clear of applaud you. Have fun understanding how to pilot a plane. Oh be put off, You not qualified to join the military because you have xyz health hazards due to your shit genetics and terrible diet/work ethics.
