Wolf Alice explain their Israel Boycott

Wolf Alice explain their Israel Boycott
Wolf Alice are part of an increasing number of artists taking part in the cultural boycott of Israel, and they explained to the Independent their reasons behind it:
 “Israelis started shooting and killing people in their tens and hundreds... We agreed years ago that we wouldn’t go there, but this was about agreeing that we would make it public. It’s been the worst period of violence since the bombings in Gaza in 2014, so it was just a big kick up the arse to say, look, we do support this.”
“If you say you're not gonna go to Israel, then lots of people ask you why you're going to other countries where you don't believe in their government's actions. People ask, ‘Why do you go to America? Does that mean you support Trump?’ And I can see why [they] think that's hypocritical, but you won’t do anything if you think like that. Everywhere’s f****d, and in terms of the cultural boycott of Israel, that’s what the Palestinian people have asked for.”
Murdering dozens of unarmed protestors with impunity upsets people. Who knew.
