Just read something very disturbing, about Paul

McCartney's upcoming concert in Isreal. A bunch

of death threats, from some serious known "terrorist"

folks, if he makes the trip. I'd prefer he and his Casino

and Texan stay as far away from there, as possible,

at least for now. He, understandably, is not wanting

"terrorists" to dictate his agenda. However, being the

Iconic figure he is, to the world, it makes him a viable

target, unfortunately. So, I (personally) hope he'll

reconsider. It's Not worth your life, Paul!

He should come to minnesota instead.

TWANG

 

Yeah...LOL, anywhere but Israel! At least for the time being.

 

I admire his tenacity, and wanting to play there, but that

area is just to volitile, and crazy to risk any harm coming to

him. But, on the other hand, if he doesn't go, "they" win...

So, I don't know...!! I just don't feel good about it! Maybe

I worry too much? Who knows?

I say let 'em win on this one, I agree, the area is too volatile and crazy, and we've already seen one crazy take out John Lennon in our own backyard. I understand his position but that's just not a good area to make any type of statements these days!

Hey evryone,i have read the post here and im kind of mad and ofended about thing that people write here

saying that he should not come to israel and stuff becouse of the threats and the intensed situation in there

so for the ones who think that way.

i my self from israel i live here all my life i served in the israeli military and was honorably discharged some time ago

and we are not as the world think and see on the news we are not the bad guys and we can realy take care of guests . the consert will be more secured than any US airport or then any other big event in the US or other big and great countrys.in a big event like Pauls concert you would have praivet security the police and military securing the whole area you wont be able to bring in any sharp objects or any thing i know becouse i have been in lots of concerts.

for the matter of terrorists .. they can only try but they will get as far as to the first security guard or a soldier who is even not near the concert. thanks for your reading. sorry for the misstype

The way they take care of bizness in Isreal I wouldn't be that worried. Stan.

 

I'm sure security will be very tight, and organized. But even JFK said that no one can foil

an assassin that's willing to die, to accomplish their goal...and, look what happened to him.

The other thing that worries me, is that if an attemp was made, and Sir Paul wasn't touched, but

a bunch of his fans were injured or killed? I don't know...just doesn't seem "worth it," to me.

 

I agree, "terrorism" must be fought and defeted in every possible way. I just don't want to see

one of the worlds most beloved musicians lost, in the process. But, maybe that's just me?

 

Still, if he's determined to go through with it, I can just hope/pray that he will be successful, and

"safe!" "All you need is Love," is certainly a better mantra, than "kill all the infidels!" But hey, I'm

from the "Peace Love" generation, what do I know?!

I'm with you Crimson. If somebody wants to murder Paul, they will. They don't need to go to Isreal to do it. In fact, I would argue that it would be much more difficult to do something there than it would be here. And I really think islamic terrorists have more on their minds than assasinating Paul.

Not disparaging Israel, or the Jewish people. But, if it came

down to it, I'd rather you be "offended," than Sir Paul being dead!

Since it looks as if he's going ahead with this concert, I DO hope your estimations

of the security affored him WILL in fact, be more than adequate! I shudder to think

what the consequences would be, if they aren't.

 

You ARE, absolutely correct, about "security" in the USA! It's still a joke! It IS better,

than it has been, but...we're a bit new, to the things you guys have dealt with for thousands

of years...so, it may take awhile (unfortunately) to get up to speed. And, while it's true,

no country is safe from "insanity," your part of the world seems to experience more than it's

fair share. Therefore, I stand by my concerns, for Sir Paul's welfare. No offense intended.

Didn't he die once already, around 1966? I'm telling you, that bloke with the moustache on the inner sleeve of the Sgt Pepper album - it's a different fella.

 

Or maybe he regenerates. Kind of like Dr Who with a Hofner Bass instead of a Tardis.

Yeah, and he's never been in the Military...as he loses his shoes, and is always out of step, crossing Abby Road! Some people!

Charlie Brown asked (rhetorically, perhaps?)

"All you need is Love," is certainly a better mantra, than "kill all the infidels!" But hey, I'm

My brother, you know the higher Truth, spoken by the prophets of all religions (if not by their less evolved fundamentalist followers), and by the great teachers like Dr. King and Mohandas Gandhi, which someday humanity will grow into. As a species, we ain't there yet, but every little step any of us takes in that direction helps the cause!

Has there been any attempt at Paul's life so far? I know George was attacked at least once... I feel like there was a second time' date=' also, but I can't think of what it was.[/quote']

 

Good thing George had a "Mexican" wife...as someone once joked! She definitely saved

his life, "Mexican" or not! Anyway, this is not about "race" or ethnicity! I just don't want

anything to happen to "Paulie!" That's all! I, like a lot of folks, am pretty "precious" about

"The Beatles," as a group, and individually. Maybe that's crazy, or silly, or whatever...especially

at my age, but...it's a fact! And, having lost 2, already...I'd just as soon see the other 2 live out

long, healthy, violence free lives. That's all. But, who knows..."Crimson" may be right...he might

be safer there, than other places, given the threats and subsequent security, that will (no doubt)

be provided.

 

But, I DO respect their rights and wishes...even if I don't always agree with them. Same for anyone,

on this forum, too. So...No Offense, was intended, towards anyone.

You didn't catch my joke about sending William Campbell to Israel in his place.

CB, I don't mean you any disrepect, but don't get all carried away about this thing with "Sir Paul". Each of us as we go

through this life have decisions to make. Some of them are a part of destiny. If Paul has any faith in him, he will do what he feels he is called to do. His life, like the rest of ours, are in God's hands. If destiny wants him to be in Israel and it becomes the time for him to leave this life, as you may fear, there is nothing that can stop it. If not there, it will be somewhere else at some other time; whenever his appointed time is meant to come to its end. As the song he co-wrote with John Lennon, "All You Need Is Love" says, "Nowhere you can be that isn't where you are meant to be." Probably written by John because I believe he had keener insight, but that's another matter. As one of their other

songs say, "Let It Be."

William Campbell sometimes refered to as William Stuart Campbell or William Shears Campbell was the Paul McCartney look-a-like who took Paul's place in the Beatles when Paul was killed in a car accident in 1966 according to the mythology of the Paul is Dead story.
