No Wonder For IDF

Abby Zimet

Stevie Wonder has reportedly pulled out of his gig headlining a Dec. 5 fundraiser for the Israel Defense Forces after two petitions urged him to remember that "apartheid is apartheid." A longtime human rights advocate, Wonder was arrested for protesting South African apartheid and now serves as a U.N. Messenger of Peace.

"In the face of over 60 years of Israeli colonization of Palestinian land and the disenfranchisement of the Palestinian people, and in the wake of Israel's latest violent aggression against the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, we ask you NOT to support the IDF. Please remember that apartheid is apartheid."
