Lorde letter writers being sued, welcome to catch up

The two social justice bullies who cowed Lorde into cancelling her concert in Tel Aviv are now on the receiving end of a damages claim:

Two New Zealanders are being sued for allegedly convincing Lorde to cancel her performance in Israel.

Jewish New Zealander Justine Sachs and Palestinian New Zealander Nadia Abu-Shanab wrote an open letter to the Kiwi pop sensation asking for her to boycott her Israeli tour dates.

The two argued the concert would show support for Israel’s occupation of Palestine.

An Israeli legal rights group called Shurat HaDin said it is suing the two Kiwis.

Shurat HaDin said on Wednesday it filed the suit in a Jerusalem court on behalf of three Israeli concert ticket holders.

The lawsuit intends to give “real consequences to those who selectively target Israel and seek to impose an unjust and illegal boycott against the Jewish state”, the group said.

The three Israelis were seeking about $13,000 in damages.

Lorde announced late last year she was cancelling her planned June 2018 concert in Tel Aviv.

You want to run boycotts, interfere with other people’s rights, all in pursuit of your own virtue-signalling bullying and Twitter activism…welcome to catch up.

Let that be a lesson to others.

Meanwhile, Little Justine thinks it is no big deal. Sally grabbed this screenshot:

Isherman points out the sharp end of pain coming her way:

Shurat HaDin have won $200 million to victims families, $2 Billion against Terror organisations and $600 million in frozen terror assets. Nitsana Darshan-Leitner is no budget bin activist flea lawyer. They take on big fights, and win.

It is all fun and games until you get sued Justine. I’m not sure your student loan can cover these damages.

Sally adds:

Justine and Nadia can’t complain they didn’t cause Lorde cancelling as they were all over the media here and overseas claiming their letter in the media was the reason Lorde pulled out.

Life just got serious for Justine and Nadia. It is all shits and giggles until someone gets sued.
