The Rototom Sunsplash Reggae Festival in Spain apparently wants Matisyahu after all.

The Jerusalem Post has learned that over the last 24-hours the organizers of the festival have been in intense deliberations in order to re-invite the Jewish-American reggae-rapper back to the festival.

The organizers are expected to issue a statement to the press about the matter late Wednesday afternoon.

Talk about re-inviting Matisyahu comes after the organizers, and Spain, has come under massive criticism for demanding that Matisyahu - an identifying Jew who in the early years of his career performed in the traditional garb of a Chabad hassid – issue a statement supporting a Palestinian state. The singer, who is neither Israeli nor makes any specific political points in his performances, didn’t do so, and his show was cancelled.
