(NEWS) Jethro Tull: Won't Be Pressured Into Cancelling Planned Israel Show

"Band leader Ian Anderson says plans to donate proceeds of Ceasaria show to charities promoting coexistence between Jews, Arabs, and Christians.

We will not be pressured into cancelling our scheduled Israel concert, Ian Anderson, of the famed British rock group Jethro Tull said in a statement recently published in the band's official website, saying that the proceeds of the upcoming show would be transferred to charities advancing co-existence between Arabs, Jews, and Christians.

Anderson's statement comes in the wake of recent cancellations by major artists in the wake of Israel's raid of a Turkish Gaza-bound aid flotilla, which resulted in the death of nine flotilla participants."
