Those that support the lies of the Palestinian terrorists are also against free speech and the right for an entertainer to make a living playing wherever he chooses. Tom Jones rocks Israel and www.criticaljazz.com supports his position. Palestinian propaganda uses doctored photos and other images to attempt to discredit Israel and their supporters. The government under Palestine which is a mythical country at best is a terrorist government better known as Hamas. They train suicide bombers to kill innocent men, women and children. Nothing is lower.
Amid reports that anti-Israel groups had pressured Jones to cancel his concerts in Israel, he said, “I was asked to come… The people wanted me to come.” He said entertainers “should be able to entertain in any country that wants to see them, regardless of politics.” Way to go Tom Jones!
British crooner Tom Jones may not be as young as he used to be, but on Saturday night he showed that you don’t have to be young to rock Tel Aviv.
Amid reports that anti-Israel groups had pressured Jones to cancel his concerts here, he said he came — on what is his second visit — because “I was asked to come… The people wanted me to come.” He said entertainers “should be able to entertain in any country that wants to see them, regardless of politics.”
Sir Tom is one of the most successful singers of his generation, with 36 Top 40 hits in the UK and over 100 million records sold.
A miner’s son with a powerful baritone, he’s also managed to reinvent himself several times over, hooking up with rising younger artists over the years including Prince and Wyclef Jean, sang on “House” TV star’s Hugh Laurie’s first “Let Them Talk” album, and performed at last year’s diamond jubilee concert for Queen Elizabeth II.
Tickets to the concert, which received excellent reviews, ranged from NIS 250 ($70) to NIS 1,800 ($500).
He’s set to play another set at Nokia Arena on Monday night
