Israeli officials have decided to forbid Tunisian singer Saber R’bai from entering Palestine to hold a concert in the city of Ariha, which is under control of the Palestinian authority.
According to the London based Elaph, the singer was scheduled to hold a number of concerts in Palestinian cities.
No justifications or reasons were provided for why Saber was banned from entering and performing in Palestine.
This is totally unacceptable!
First of all, the cities in which Saber was to perform are Palestinian cities under Palestinian authority control, and they should be free to let whoever they want in or out. Another thing is that there can be no reason whatsoever to ban a great and peaceful artist like Saber from performing for the people of Palestine.
