During a concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall last week, with 17 musicians from the Palestine Strings, soloist Nigel Kennedy compared the situation in Israel to apartheid in South Africa. « Ladies and gentlemen, it’s a bit facile to say it but we all know from experiencing this night of music tonight that giving equality and getting rid of apartheid means there’s a chance for amazing things to happen, » Kennedy was quoted by ‘Al Arabiya’ as having said. The BBC will air this concert on August 23 without the political comments.
