I'm a bit surprised Morrissey has been so quiet about the Israel- Palestine war, since he has always express such love to Israel? I mean, is not like being cancelled is an issue for him.
"Each time you vote , you support the process"I'm glad he hasn't been tricked into making a comment.
You can like the people in a country without liking their appalling government.
In Gavin McIness' recent video about attending one of the Moz gigs in New York, he mentions a little story about a fan with an Israeli flag and Morrissey's reaction, though I'm not sure how much truth there is to it, since I've not seen any mention of this elsewhere.
he begins at around 7:33 in this clip:
"Each time you vote , you support the process"
Even though these people hate this government very much now, someone voted for it. I'll give you a hint, the people in this country.
Another thing is why he should comment on this war now, when this terrifying conflict has been going on for decades ?
These are exactly the kind of gruesome tossers I hope Morrissey keeps away from.
I very much doubt he would refuse a flag & then chuck his shirt at a guy because of Israel.
His label didn’t want to reissue I’m Throwing My Arms Around Paris for the Paris tragedy as he had proposed. Perhaps he can get “Israel” released as a single?
Was he on a label at the time? I think Boz was asking a prior company to rerelease it?
Yes, it’s already been mentioned. And you’re a moderator? please, do keep up!
Just like after the Paris attacks in 2015, where Morrissey wanted to re-release "I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris", now is the time for Morrissey (who received the keys to Tel Aviv in 2012) to show his support after the barbaric attacks on innocent civilians. I'm sure most of the Israeli...www.morrissey-solo.com
I'm suspicious of that Paris episode.
He's constantly referring to people telling him things - he heard people wanted to buy the single. Who did he hear it from? It seems someone has been keen to get him involved in Islamic terrorist discourse & as they're doing it dishonestly he doesn't say the things they want him to say - making it weird.
It is very tiresome.
Haven't you heard Israel? "I can't answer | for what armies do | they are not you | they are not you | they are not you...".
I would imagine like most sane people he is torn on the subject. Appalled by the terrible antisemitism. Appalled by the woke zealots who seem to have found common cause with Islamic jihadism in hating the West. But also appalled by the sight of a war machine bombing innocent civilians.I'm a bit surprised Morrissey has been so quiet about the Israel- Palestine war, since he has always express such love to Israel? I mean, is not like being cancelled is an issue for him.
If you really go into the lyrics, the core message is more or less the same. But of course it will be a bit different if the country is like a world police big brother or an underdog surrounded by enemies, and therefore I think Israel should rather be compared to Mexico than America Is Not The World. But every country and every song is different, so it's a bit like comparing apples and oranges and expecting them to taste the same.Except he doesn't apply that same logic to America. Compare Israel to America is not the world. One is a hymn of praise in spite of the armies, the other is a tortured, backhanded love letter blaming the armies and the worst elements. Something is wrong here.
