A powerful message to Neil Young from Salim Vally. Neil Young is scheduled to play apartheid Israel on July 17th, 2014. Facebook page asking him not to play is here: Neil Young, Tell Me Why You Would Play for Apartheid Israel Dr. Salim Vally is director of the Centre for Education Rights and Transformation at the University of Johannesburg. He is renowned in South Africa as an academic, educator and human rights activist, and member of the Palestine Solidarity Committee. Dear Neil Young, Your music and songs provided much needed succour during our struggle against apartheid in South Africa. I distinctly remember how we, school children in the notorious John Vorster Square prison in Johannesburg, after the Soweto uprising in 1976, changed the lyrics of your song four dead in Ohio-recalling the anti-Vietnam war demonstrations-to hundreds dead in Soweto. We called on the world to isolate the apartheid regime and most of humanity, including musicians, eventually heeded our call. Some though played at Sin City. Palestinians are confronted with, in the words of Archbishop Desmond Tutu, a system of discrimination worse than apartheid in South Africa. Palestinians inspired by our global campaign against apartheid South Africa call for similar action against apartheid in Israel. They ask for nothing more than the basic democratic and human rights that we in South Africa largely enjoy today. Rights that exist in no small measure because of global solidarity. The words of Mandela, We know too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians resonate with millions of South Africans and are deeply understood by those around the world who have faced adversity and oppression and who know the value of solidarity and our common humanity. Please dont disappoint Neil. Please dont play at apartheid Israels version of Sin City.

PARIS (AP) Twitter agreed to pull racist and anti-Semitic tweets under a pair of French hash tags after a Jewish group threatened to sue the social network for running afoul of national laws against hate speech, the organization said. The decision came a day after Twitter bowed to German law and blocked an account of a banned neo-Nazi group there. The freewheeling social network is increasingly running up against European anti-discrimination laws, many of which date to the aftermath of the Holocaust by governments that acknowledged the contribution of years of hate speech to the Nazi attempt to annihilate the Jews.
