Upset by Bon Jovi’s decision to play in Israel in October, the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) announced a campaign to prevent the concert from taking place. But that didn’t stop United with Israel fans from posting encouraging messages on Bon Jovi’s Facebook page. Bon Jovi is still coming!
Roey Gilad, Israel’s Consul General in Chicago, was scheduled to appear at an interfaith dialogue event hosted by the Niagara Foundation to discuss whether religions can build peace in the Middle East.
But after appeals by the anti-Israel US Palestinian Community Network and American Muslims for Palestine, the Niagara Foundation announced that it was canceling the planned peace event with Gilad.
United with Israel’s Call to Action that was posted on July 9 pushed hundreds of United with Israel supporters to post words of encouragement and support on Bon Jovi’s official Facebook page. It must have worked because Bon Jovi is still coming to Israel!
