Grass-roots peace concert in Jericho called off over security concerns

A West Bank peace concert for supporters of a two-state solution to the conflict with Israel has been called off because of security concerns, the organizer said late Thursday. The concert was to have been held simultaneously in a football stadium in the West Bank town of Jericho and in a park in Tel Aviv on Oct. 18. The New York-based One Voice organization said the concerts were aimed at bolstering its campaign to collect one million signatures of ordinary Israelis and Palestinians demanding that their leaders sit down and finalize an agreement on a Palestinian state living at peace with Israel. The concerts were to have been free, but concertgoers would have been asked to sign the One Voice petition.
