Matisyahu : Rototom publicly apologizes

"We recognize our mistake. We made the subject of intense pressures BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions). We reject anti-Semitism and all forms of religious discrimination. "Added the organizers.

"The Rototom publicly apologizes for having canceled the Matisyahu concert and festival announces reprogramming as originally planned," the organizers said in a statement.

Outraged by the exclusion of the Jewish artist, the World Jewish Congress on Monday asked the Spanish authorities to press for a musician’s participation be maintained, or that public funding is withdrawn. The State of Israel for its part denounced a whiff of anti-Semitism.

Spain, through the voice of its Foreign Ministry, reiterated its rejection of boycott campaigns against Israel and reaffirmed its support for the two-state solution.
