Idan Raichel calls himself a cultural ambassador for Israel. He is an outspoken and uncritical supporter of the Israeli army. The Idan Rachel Project is part of the Israeli government’s Brand Israel public relations campaign, using the arts and culture to cover up Israel’s brutal repression of the Palestinian people.

This action, part of the cultural boycott campaign, will show what culture for liberation and freedom can look like. It is part of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanction (BDS) movement, which puts pressure on Israel by sending the message that there will be no business as usual until Israel ends its occupation, colonization, and apartheid policies.
