Depeche Mode, Don't Take Any Part in the Israeli System of Apartheid

Don't Play Apartheid Israel

Mar 23, 2013 — Depeche Mode, shamefully, this is a bit of Israeli society, this is not unusual, but prevalent, please refrain from playing in apartheid Israel.
As of Friday there were almost 200 comments under the post offering suggestions of what the Israeli army should do – the vast majority fantasizing extreme sadistic violence and murder.

What makes this even more than usually disturbing is many of the Israeli commentators appear to be high school students themselves – perhaps only a year or two from mandatory army service when they will be empowered to carry out their fantasies.

Shlomo Levi thinks Palestinian children should be gassed to death.
