The growing tensions between Palestininans and Israelis have ignited sustained rounds of rocket fire from Gaza and retaliatory air strikes by Israel. Concerns over the safety of those planning to see Neil Young in concert in Tel Aviv Thursday (7/17) have resulted in that show being cancelled. Young announced through a spokesman, 'It is with heavy heart and deep sadness that we must cance our one and only Israeli concert due to tensions which have rendered the event unsafe at this time.' Young also announced that he will make a donation to a pair of organizations that seek to help Israeli and Palestinin youg people to reach a better understanding of one another by playing music together, the Louise Tillie Alpert Youth Music Centre of Israel and Heartbeat.
