Gush Shalom Asks Boycott of Dead Sea Festival

The extreme-left Gush Shalom movement called on performing artists Thursday night to cancel their participation in the Dead Sea Love Festival during the intermediate days of Pesach, which begins next week.

An announcement by the movement says the festival will take place in "the settlement of Mitzpeh Shalom", next to a factory which uses natural resources "of occupied territory in violation of international law".
