The usual voices of intolerance are protesting the Grammy Award-winning songwriter’s visit.

Alanis Morissette, the Palestinian picket line is right in front of you, please don’t cross it. Don’t play apartheid Israel -BDS

Alanis Morissette and her young child have had their lives threatened by anti-Israel “peace” activists. Now, THAT is ironic.
