Germany: Pro-Israel charity irked at singing settler children

German organizers of a fund-raiser for an Israeli hospital took issue with the performance of an Israeli children’s choir because some of its members live in settlements, and asked the youths to keep quiet about where their homes are located.


In the run-up to the dinner, which took place at the beginning of the month, the choir was asked to provide information about its members as part of the security preparations.

A few days later German organizers contacted the Israeli coordinators and explained that there was a problem because some of the children were from West Bank settlements.

Planners considered various options including leaving the problematic singers at home, or canceling the performance altogether.
