Stevie Wonder cancels Israel military gig on UN recommendation
The famous US colored singer Stevie Wonder has called off a concert for a group that raises money for the Israeli military.
Stevie had been scheduled to perform on 6 December for friends of the Israel Defense Forces, which raises money for Israeli soldiers and their families.
Stevie said the United Nations recommended cancelling his performance because he is an official Messenger of Peace for the organization.
The United Nations overwhelmingly voted to recognize a Palestine state over vehement US and Israeli objections.
In a related story the British daily ‘The Independent’ strongly condemned Britain’s abstention, at the voting in the world body, as a cowardly act and a grave tactical error.
