Beyonce And Jennifer Lopez Urged To Boycott Israel

Reports that US singers Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez will perform in Israel this summer have triggered a pre-emptive campaign by activists, who are calling on the stars to boycott Israel in solidarity with the plight of Palestinians.

By Thursday, at least two petitions against Beyonce's rumoured concert date in Tel Aviv had been launched, while social media users attached the #canceltelavivhashtag to posts as they called on the pair to support a boycott.
