Jewish reggae rapper Matisyahu knows where he's welcome.

Following last month's headline-making boycott effort of the American singer at Spain's Rototom Sunplash Festival, the subsequent backtrack and his eventual performance in front of a sea of Palestinian flags, Matisyahu high-tailed it for Israel where he made an impromptu appearance at the closing of Jerusalem's Season of Culture's Sacred Music Festival at the Tower of David Museum.
