Don't it warm the cockles?

So Bricup, the British Committee for the Universities of Palestine, is urging, yet again, that a rock star should not play Israel. This time the target is that well-known highly politicised singer (I jest), Sir Elton John, who has announced that he will give a concert in Tel Aviv this June.
I was immensely amused by Bricup's tactic in which it sought to persuade Elton not to go, and to convince him of Israel's innate unsuitability as a venue. He was recommended to read the Goldstone Report.
Now, I daresay Sir Elton and David Furnish have a lovely home. But somehow, I just can't see the pair of them cuddled up of an evening, poring over Judge Richard Goldstone's dissection of Israel's Gaza operation. Heat magazine or OK!, yes. Goldstone?
