Defy internet bullies
Madam -- Whilst I am no fan of Israel and its policies towards Palestinians, the decision by traditional group Dervish to pull out of a short tour there because of 'venom' directed towards them on a social media site is regrettable. These sites are now being used viciously by various 'anti' factions -- individuals or groups -- who think they have a god-given right to direct their personal insecurities, looniness and general nastiness under the protection of anonymity.
In this instance a musical group was their target but this is happening everywhere, whether it is fracking, pro-life issues, water charges, etc, etc.
The denizens with these dark digital nightmares are a very sad lot indeed.
