BRICUP wote to Sir Simon Ratle and Placido Domingo asking them to refuse
to go to Israel to receive the $100,000 Wolf Prize.

Sadly they went and took the cheque and the box of chocolates; bouquet
of roses and diploma that went with it. They did not even take the opportunity,
which previoius recipients had, to use the ceremony as a chance to denounce
Israel’s crimes or donate the prize money to Palestinain organisations.
Then they could have kept the chocolates, roses and diploma and also
kept some of their integrity, but times must be tough for global musical
super stars and they needed the money more.
