French trio Wanderer cancels Lebanon concert on threat from antisemitic terror group

Surrendering to Hezb’Allah? Terrorism wins. Again. Caving to Nazis – we know were that leads. We know what happens. Was nothing learned from the Jew-haters of the 20th century?

Why aren’t rational political and cultural elites, in short supply no doubt, demanding that the Muslim world purge itself of the Islamic Jew hatred endemic to its teachings and culture?

This is the age of the coward.

French trio Wanderer cancels Lebanon concert: festival

Al Monitor, July 31, 2017 (thanks to Lookmann):

French classical group Trio Wanderer cancelled its Sunday evening concert in Lebanon’s Baalbek International Festival, a day after activists lambasted it for playing in Israel last year.

A source at the festival confirmed to AFP on Saturday that Trio Wanderer would no longer be playing, but denied that it was because of political pressure. “The concert was cancelled because of personal reasons pertaining to Vincent Coq,” the group’s pianist, the source said on condition of anonymity.

Trio Wanderer was not immediately available for comment. The celebrated festival is one of the most popular cultural events and is held in Baalbek’s spectacular Roman ruins, drawing large crowds.

Lebanese Shiite movement Hezbollah,
an avid enemy of Israel, has a strong presence in the modern city by the same name. On Saturday, the Campaign to Boycott Supporters of Israel in Lebanon (CBSIL) published a letter addressed to the French trio on its website.

It said Trio Wanderer’s 2016 concert in the southern Israeli port city of Eilat “insulted the martyrs of Lebanon and of Baalbek”. “We demand that you follow the example of hundreds of musicians and international artists that have declared their support for the cultural boycott of the apartheid state,” the letter read. A boycott campaign over Israel’s five-decade occupation of Palestinian territory has been under way for years, spearheaded by the Boycott, Divest, and Sanction (BDS) movement. Earlier this year, Lebanon banned the screening of Hollywood blockbuster “Wonder Woman” because lead actress Gal Gadot had served in the Israeli military.

Lebanon and Israel are still technically in a state of war, and the Arab League maintains a Damascus-based office responsible for coordinating a regional boycott of the Jewish state.

    Lebanon is not a country. It is a collection of cantons much like the former Syria. Lebanon or what is now Iran west can’t even run garbage collection.

    So sad that Lebanon has devolved from the Paris of the Middle East to a province of the Mad Mullahs. Trump should arm the Christians and take back Lebanon for Christendom. Our Marines still lie unavenged.

      That fact alone is enough to bomb it back to the 7th century

    Le bwaark, le beawkkk, l’cluck cluck cluck. The french once again retreat in utter arrogance and delusion.
