Culture minister: Elvis Costello unworthy of performing in Israel

Culture and Sports Minister Limor Livnat criticized singer Elvis Costello for calling off his concerts in Israel. According to the minister, "An artist boycotting his fans in Israel is unworthy of performing here."

 

Costello issued a statement on his official website on Monday night, in which he apologized to his fans and explained that he had decided to cancel his gigs in Israel in protest of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. (Roni Sofer)
