Israel State Twitter Seizes Upon Opportunity to use Alicia Keys' name

The Official twitter of the state of Israel  has seized upon the opportunity to use Alicia Keys' name in an deceiving effort to promote Israel as a center of entertainment and welcome tourist destination.

The immensely popular singer-songwriter and actress who has won many Grammys, is being asked to decline the invitation to sing in Israel to a segregated audience.  
Macy Gray tweeted her regret in agreeing to play Tel Aviv, Israel in 2011.  

Grammy-winning jazz singer Cassandra Wilson was scheduled to be the featured performer at the Holon International Women's Festival in 2012.  Just days before her sold out performances, she politely bowed out, saying “As a human rights activist I identify with the cultural boycott of Israel.”
