Remember, it's anti-Zionism... not anti-Semitism.
Sean Paul, based on a glance at his Wiki page, appears to be part Afro-Carribean, Chinese and English. He also had a Jewish grandfather and was raised Catholic.
Algerians have zeroed in on the Jewish part of that mixture. It's another win for BDS.
Algerians have started a Facebook campaign to cancel a planned August 22 concert by Jamaican rapper Sean Paul.
The reason? Because his paternal grandfather was Jewish.
One of the activists wrote, "Does it make sense to think of greeting a singer with Jewish origins in Algeria after all the massacres committed by the Israelis in Palestine our brothers?"
Remember, it's anti-Zionism... not anti-Semitism. That's why they're going after a guy with a Jewish grandfather.
The comments on his Facebook page run the gamut from ugly to really ugly.
