Alicia Keys’ visit to Israel for her July 4 concert in Tel Aviv elicited controversy. Many had wanted her to cancel her performance because they believe Israel is a racist, “apartheid state.” The notion that Israel is an apartheid state is completely absurd. In Israel, there are no laws that relegate any racial group to second-class citizenship. Israelis, whether they are white or black, Jewish, Christian, Muslim or anything else, have the right to vote and have freedom of speech, press, religion, etc. In fact, Israel is the only nation in the Middle East where Christians, Muslims and Jews have complete freedom of religion.
