Bryan Adams Hating On Israel

The latest celebrity to emerge as an ignoramus extraordinaire is singer Bryan Adams, who has been tweeting away against Israel.

Besides the usual anti-Israel talking points and platitudes, note how he dismisses the killing of a 4-year-old Israeli, the killing of 3 Israeli teens, the fact Israeli children have to keep running for cover, and the Hamas charter calling for Jews to be killed.

It is a shame Adams does not remember the summer of 69 better. If he did, he would remember how Israel fought and won a battle for its survival just two years earlier, why it needed to hold on to the disputed territories, and how Gaza was under the control of Egypt.

As it turns out, Adams is just another celebrity for whom facts and logic are not music to his ears.

Update: In the past, Adams has claimed to be committed to the OneVoice initiative, which seems anti-Hamas. He also claimed he would return to Israel for a concert, after his planned concert in 2007 was cancelled due to violence.

    It should be noted that Bryan Adams, has actually lived in Israel when he was young. His father was formerly the Canadian Ambassador to Israel, and he studied at the American International School (at that time in Kfar Shmaryahu).

    It seems that time didn’t teach him much, except how to make bad music.

      I stand by my comment. Other than Leonard Cohen who is ok.

        lol ok Bryan’s being a dweeb but maybe he’ll come around with some education, like I think Neil Young did with the Oil Sands. The Band; Tragically Hip; Blue Rodeo; Max Webster; Trooper; Shania Twain; April Wine; OLP; Steppenwolf; Oscar Peterson; Celine Dion (I know I know but no denying she can sing!); Paul Anka; Jann Arden; Diana Krall. And I’m just getting started, You Ain’t Seen Nuthin’ Yet! (BTO).

    I just took another look at the photo that links to this article from the main page.

    The palms of his hand appear to be painted red. Is he paying “homage” to the horrific Aziz Salha? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2000_Ramallah_lynching

    Adams hasn’t had a hit recording in 19 years, so he is another past-his-prime singer who is living on nostalgia.
