For a band who recently played in support of Palestinian refugees, it's really strange tht @ChiliPeppers would perform in an apartheid state—

Refusing to boycott Israel has the Red Hot Chili Peppers in hot water with Palestinian activists. The band is scheduled to play Hayarkon Park in Tel Aviv, Sept. 10, 2012. The concert’s opening act, Lebanon’s Mashrou’ Leila, has canceled, and many are calling for the band to ditch the date. It seems even a liberal bunch like RHCP is not immune to the ire of the Left. After all, one can’t allow art — or economics — to betray politics.
we will not be opening for the red hot chili peppers on september 6 in beirut—

But not everyone wants the band to bail. Some are willing to put politics aside for good music.
