The battle for the soul of Alicia Keys – Part 1
Dear Friends of Palestine,
We would not ordinarily bother you for an online poll, but in this case there is more to the story.
World wide appeals from Alice Walker, Roger Waters and more than 500 organizations have not yet dissuaded entertainer Alicia Keys from performing in Israel, but the voice of her public might do the trick.
Please go to http://www.bet.com/news/global/2013/06/12/poll-should-alicia-keys-perform-in-isreal and vote NO in the poll in the lower right section of the screen. In the early stages, the poll was reading more than 80% NO, but Israel pays teams of web surfers to mobilize other Zionists to give false readings on such polls. It is even possible that multiple voting is allowed. We should at least try to show that the Israeli propaganda machine can be defeated.
Will Ms. Keys cancel her performance? It depends upon her sense of social justice but also upon how she thinks it will affect her career. There is no doubt that the poll will be a factor.
Thank you for trying.
