An Open Letter to Mira Awad from PACBI

The Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel has this to say about Mira Awad, the Palestinian-Israeli artist performing with Noa at the Eurovision Song Contest:

An Open Letter to Mira Awad: Do not help Israel whitewash its atrocities in the Gaza Strip!

PACBI — Ramallah, Occupied Palestine, March 8, 2009

Palestinian artists and intellectuals in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip are disappointed by the news of your intention to represent Israel in the Eurovision Song Contest. The Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) is writing to urge you not to participate on behalf of Israel in this contest…

…Your performance in this contest will be telling Palestinians that their suffering – the product of colonialism and racism – doesn‘t matter. You will be giving a slap in the face to each and every Palestinian singer, musician, artist, filmmaker, writer, poet, as well as regular Palestinians, who have to struggle to overcome Israel’s deliberate efforts to silence their voice.” [read full...]

Mary Rizzo and Richard Silverstein have already outlined the hypocrisy of Awad’s partner in whitewashing, Noa.

    I am an Australian artist who would be proud to stand alongside my Palestinian brothers and sisters in their fight for liberation from apartheid and colonialism.

    Would you have sung with a German during the Nazi/Hitler regime or with a Russian during Stalin’s purges ?
    I’m sure you would not have wanted your name associated with crimes against humanity. Israel is committing crimes against humanity by killing Palestinians in large numbers…your own people???
    I would not even though I am Australian, I stand in solidarity with Palestinians as they are being brutalised and until Israel change their policy to Palestine, you should not support or lend your name or reputation to the state of Israel.
    Boycott Israel as many other performers are doing, to let them know we dismiss child killers, torturers and occupiers that steal land and freedom of the Palestinians.
