Israeli court: NZ activists must pay for Lorde cancellation

An Israeli court has ordered two New Zealand women to pay over $12,000 in damages for allegedly helping persuade the pop singer Lorde to cancel a performance in Israel.

The suit was filed under a law that allows civil lawsuits against anyone who calls for a boycott against Israel. Thursday's ruling is believed to be the first time the 2011 law has been applied.

The two New Zealanders, Justine Sachs and Nadia Abu-Shanab, had appealed to the singer in an open letter to "join the artistic boycott of Israel". Lorde acknowledged the letter and cancelled her show days later.

(*an enemy of Israel is an enemy of Trump !
I know , I know , he said an enemy of Israel is an enemy of The United States of America , but I'm a liberal , and he said we were too intolerable for him to govern .
So enemy of Israel might actually be an enemy of Trump’s Base , but they seam to demonstrate a " There's Always Room For More" attitude in that direction .)
