Jello Biafra in Al-Jazeera English on whether or not bands should boycott Israel
Last year Jello Biafra was gonna go over to Israel to see how bad it is and do a show for money. Then someone of Facebook found out and ordered him to honor the boycott. They may have also threatened him. He ended up swallowing the cost of the plane tickets he'd already bought, and he's not sure how he's going to pay for them, but he did still manage to get over there this past fall. He writes all about it today in Al-Jazeera English. It's lengthy and worth checking out. No Boutros.
