As cultural icons like rock musician Roger Waters and film director Ken Loach call on fellow artists to boycott Israel and question the country's right to exist - and Thom York strongly objects to them doing so - a unique panel meets in Los Angeles on Sunday to present how people inside the spheres of music, art, and entertainment view this complex issue. Should art be seen as a neutral path connecting people and cultures or could there be a moral justification for boycotting a company, or a city, or even a whole country?

Former Pink Floyd engineer Alan Parsons, Actor Mark Pellegrino, Entertainment Attorney Ken Hertz, bass player Guy Eretz and film producer David Zucker discuss these issues under the moderation of Lana Melman at the Wilshire Boulevard Temple.
