News the HP Doesn't Cover: Rhianna in Israel

Remember when the Huffington Post was overjoyed to write about Elvis Costello's decision not to come to Israel?

Well apparently the singer Rhianna is touring Israel in preparation for a concert there. She has called her trip "an amazing, amazing experience." Metallica also performed in Israel earlier this month, and the Pixies and Elton John are scheduled to come. The Huffington Post has yet to cover any of them.


  1. There is NO cultural boycott of Israel. The only people HP doesn't inform of this fact are its own readers.

  2. To be honest, I don't think this is really news that must be reported. If Rihanna went to Australia or Japan or France, this would not be news. Israel is no different.

    The only time HP has a responsibility to mentioned artists who *are* playing in Israel is when they cover an artist who refuses to play in Israel.
