One Republic (Still) Hearts Israel

American pop rock band One Republic recently delivered two blows to the haters.

Firstly, they ignored boycott calls and played in Israel – which we knew would happen in advance after lead singer Ryan Tedder confirmed they stay out of politics.

(Actually, we knew well before this. They performed here last in 2015, and showed they really love it here and hate BDS).

Secondly, they did not just put in a great performance but again expressed how much they love it here and their desire to return.

These things might be small victories, but they are victories nonetheless.
