Coldplay is getting into some serious “Trouble” with its Jewish and pro-Israel fanbase. (See what we did there?)
In a message posted on its Facebook page yesterday, the British band urged fans to check out the “Freedom for Palestine” music video. “Some of our friends are involved in OneWorld’s new ‘Freedom for Palestine’ single,” the band wrote, posting a link to the video on OneWorld’s website.
“Freedom for Palestine,” performed by international music artists, starts with strong lyrics: “So many years of catastrophe/more than six million refugees/it could be you and your family/forced from your home and your history.” It also features depictions of Israeli army checkpoints and Israel’s controversial security fence, and goes on to urge “breaking down the wall” and “justice for all.”
