Perhaps Radiohead could consider playing in Syria, North East Nigeria, Yemen, South Sudan, Afghanistan - might not get out alive but at least their Twitter feed would be less hostile.
That's a ridiculous argument, there's no need to boycott any of those countries because no one would play there anyway.

And don't kid yourself with this "for some reason" bullshit. People who are calling for a cultural boycott of Israel are doing so for their treatment of Palestinians in the occupied territories and for systematically stealing their land. Nothing to do with anything else.

And as with everyone else you seem completely unable to answer a simple question - why are they not calling for a boycott of any other country? There is a fair bit of so-called Palestinian land in Jordan - why don't they also face a boycott? What about Russia's invasion of Crimea? How about the United Arab Emirates and Saudia Arabia bombing Yemen to smitherenes? There must be a reason why only Israel is targeted but no one seems to be able to explain it.

If someone made a case for boycotting any of the other countries you mention, and that case was as strong as the one we're talking about, I'd support that too. But it's silly to try and generalise. How many artists go to these places anyway?

Your attempt to paint Israel as some sort of victim here is just plain odd.

Palestine has been offered exactly what you're asking for (an independent state). Twice. They turned it down both times.

The last time Israel retreated and started 'giving back land' Palestine attacked Israel brutally.

We've moved on to how the ungrateful Palestinian scum aren't playing fair.
