Matisyahu Sings "Jerusalem" Amid BDS Protesters at Spanish Music Festival

Talk about courage. A young Jewish American reggae singer named Matisyahu was scheduled to perform at a Spanish reggae festival. The pro-Palestinian boycott, divest and sanctions crowd wanted him removed because he was pro-Israel and would not make the obligatory statements of support for Palestinians. Thus, his performance was held in front of a sea of waving Palestinian flags. Undaunted, he sang, "Jerusalem."

So who had the last laugh?

Reminds me of Paul Robeson singing Zog Nit Kaynmal in Moscow in 1949.
