Musician Paul Young: “I Choose To Ignore [BDS], It’s Not Worthwhile To Start”

English pop legend Paul Young is set to play in Israel on May 21, his third time in 8 years. And in an interview with the Jerusalem Post, he admitted some BDS-holes had tried to pressure him.

Did not work.

“I choose to ignore that stuff, it’s not worthwhile to start,” he said. “I’m a musician and I go places and perform to people that want to listen to good music. Targeting musicians just isn’t fair, we don’t have very many more ways to earn a living anymore. And why should they focus on Israel? If I don’t happen to like [US President] Donald Trump’s politics, does that mean I shouldn’t play in the Unites States anymore?”

Class act.
