The usual voices of intolerance are protesting the Grammy Award-winning songwriter’s visit.

As Morissette defies the threats and boycotts, Israeli fans are showing their appreciation:

If only more entertainers had the courage to stand for Israel without apology or retreat.

Thank you, Alanis.

  • Danny Wheeler

    Don’t cave in, Mrs. Morissette! Call their bluff!

  • Finrod Felagund

    Good for Alanis. It’s rare to see entertainers stand up to Muslim hate.

  • TexasMeow

    Great for you Alanis! So glad you were brave enough to stand up for what is right. Those lame excuse giving other performers have no guts or back bone. Stand with Israel. Palestine needs to get rid of their infestation of terrorist rats!!!!

  • sqeptiq

    That’s good news. Folks in the Mid East could use more entertainment; there’s enough awfulness there.

  • Thanatos144

    its apartheid now???? These guys never stop lying.

    • orringtonmom (D)

      that was my thought, too.

    • KansasGirl

      Coming to America soon.

    • bhaack

      You nailed it. For liberals words mean nothing.

      • Howzah123

        Newspeak is alive and well in the liberal brain

  • NRPax

    Islam is such a peaceful religion that they’ll kill you for making them mad. But kudos to Alanis for playing there in spite of the threats.

  • syvyn11

    I’m sure she’s as liberal as the day is long, but credit for her to stand on her principals. Which is much more than I can say about her peers.

  • Coleridge1

    So pleased that Alanis is performing g in democratic Israel and has defied the intimidation of the women-stoning, Gay-killing, Christian-hating Islamists.

    • Yay Sayer

      BRAVO! Well said!


    look, I will literally stand right next to Alanis or any other performers who want to play Israel (ok, not Lady GooGoo?) #jihad #sharia #CounterJihad #SOT

  • Josephine (D)

    I’m not a fan of hers, but she is brave. I wish others would be.

  • JustLikeAnimals

    Wow. I have new-found respect for Morissette. Well done.

  • Well Done

    never more amused than when the azzhat left allow themselves to be disgraced by the most stupid and senseless propaganda. the only apartheid in the MidEast is in most every Moslem country, where non-moslems live under constant threat. If “palestinians” don’t like “apartheid”, why don’t they hei their useless backsides to Jordan or Egypt and enjoy the freedom there. get the heck off Israeli land, creeps.

  • Michelle Li Vigni

    I give her a lot of credit for standing up for Israel.

  • Lady 12

    Good for her! I now know to get one of her cd’s for Christmas, though in truth I haven’t got a clue who to give it to. It’s fantastic to see that some people in Hollywood have more than manufactured courage.

    (But couldn’t she have put some clothes on in that video? Or couldn’t Twitchy have at least picked a better video to show?) In any case, cudos to you, Ms. Morissette. You have a new fan.

    damn, people really hate the Jews. I love Alanis even more now that she is in Israel performing.

  • aPLWBinAK

    Normally not a fan of her Liberal self, but always try to give credit where due….she deserves credit on this. Go for it girl, give those goat molesters the finger and sing….

    • dmacleo

      I agree.

  • Raphael Gluck ツ

    thank you Israel

    thank you (Anti)terror…

    thank you thank you Zionists!

  • Maria

    I’m glad to see finally a celeb has a back bone that won’t snap like a twig!

  • sharoniscaring

    To bad others in Hollywood or entertainers don’t have guts!

  • nc

    Alanis, “You Oughta Know” that the libbies would turn on you for stepping out of line.

  • john j

    Good for her!

  • Garth Haycock

    Never in an eternity would I ever believe that I would some day say the words, “good for you, Alanis Morissette”.

  • anon

    The Israels just killed around 50 children in Gaza. Around 100 adults were killed. I don’t know what democracy has to do with it. They took a vote and then killed the children. Vegans don’t have a problem with that?

    • Lawrence Malcolm

      Yeah, It’s like the IDF intentionally targets schools and mosques – and it’s not like arabs hide behind women and children in battle anyway….

  • Brian Mouland

    Gutsy move like the sheep mentality of many others in the entertainment industry

  • Sean Holland

    I just dont understand why the left supports the Islamists over the israel. Is it because they have brain-damage???? Islamists are against everything that the left stand for.Israel supports most of the lefts wild policies…yet libs hate israel. Im confused.

  • TexasMeow

    I replied to ……….jennnsolo above in favor of Alanis and in favor of Israel. Got a response that “I was sleeping” and then not long after I was suspended from Twitter. I believe I was a victim of Twitter Bullies hitting my block/spam button. And of course trying to get any response from Twitter is a joke.

  • Lawrence Malcolm


  • Matt

    I’d love to know what about the Palestinians these supporters think are worthy of supporting. The rocket attacks on Israel? Using their own people as human shields? Their lifelong stated goal of destroying Israel? What about these people is worth supporting?

  • Lawrence Malcolm

    Wow! Just had my pro-jewish/Israel comment deleted! On Twitchy? Have the PC police finally nested themselves in here too?

  • Guest

    I stand with Israel.

  • John Lacharite

    Alanis who???

    • dontcare4uatall

      You know, the person thats more famous than you or I.

  • dontcare4uatall

    Dam talk about IRONIC,DON’T CHA’ THINK

  • Jason

    Yep. The Psalms 83 war is coming soon. In other news, Alanis and Liv Tyler are still tied for sexiest hair in my book. God bless everyone. Have a great day today.

  • Kowboy_Kazikli_Bey

    Sigh..whenever I take off my clothes and start singing in the street everyone runs away…then I’m arrested.

  • Grumpa Grumpus

    I’m not a fan, and I am unlikely to become one… but good for her!

  • Under Dog

    Surprised by this. Alanis is an uncommon woman. Good for her.

  • JonInVA

    Amazing that anybody thinks they have the right to take another’s life simply for leading their own lives how they wish. Wars and battles are one thing. But these Muslims and “peace” activists, with their never-ending threats of violence against regular fellow citizens is just beyond the beyond.

  • BeeKaaay

    Finally, Alanis does something respectable. Very good.

  • bret robertson

    ok i AM NOT A FAN by I will give props to her

  • BeautifulAmerica

    Great to hear this, Alanis. Fearless Spirit–like the people of Israel. God be with you and your child.
