Palestinians say no to Lana Del Rey’s “token gesture”

Campaigners are slamming Lana Del Rey for making a “token gesture” toward Palestinians even as she acknowledges the increasing pressure she is facing to cancel a gig in Israel next month.

Despite the calls from fans and fellow artists not to go ahead with her appearance at the Meteor Festival, the American pop singer insisted in a post on Instagram Tuesday that “We will be still playing our show in Israel.”

But in a sign she is feeling the heat, Del Rey added: “That being said, I understand the concern towards showing support to the Palestinians too.”

“So I just wanted to let you know when I’m in Israel I will be visiting Palestine too and I look forward to meeting both Palestinian and Israeli children and playing music for everyone. I want peace for both Israel and Palestine.”
