Elton John is More of a Man than Most

Elton John not only played a sold-out, rollicking show in Tel Aviv, but he took the opportunity to educate other artists about the point of art and the work they should be doing:

"Musicians spread love and peace, and bring people together. That's what we do," he said. "We don't cherry-pick our conscience."

Then, he took a swipe at all the protestors and declared his support for Israel in no uncertain terms:

"Shalom, we are so happy to be back here! Ain't nothing gonna stop us from coming, baby," John said with a fist in the air.
