In the run-up to Shakira's visit to Israel Tuesday, a Facebook group has been created urging the Columbian pop star to cancel her trip.

"Shakira: Say NO to apartheid and YES to Freedom for Palestine" has 804 "likes" and purports to be written by a joint team of Israelis and Palestinians. The signatories bear traditional Hebrew and Arabic names.

Shakira, a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, will visit Jerusalem on Tuesday to take part in the third annual Israeli Presidential Conference.
