[ # ] Israel apologizes to the Beatles!
January 28th, 2008 under Beatles

Israel is apologizing to the surviving Beatles for banning them 43 years ago and will invite them to play Israel's 60th anniversary in May according to EarthTimes. 

Here is what the Israeli UK Ambassador said is in the letter while he was in Liverpool this weekend.

"we would like to take this opportunity to rectify an historic missed opportunity which unfortunately took place in 1965 when you were invited to Israel.

"Unfortunately, the State of Israel cancelled your performance in the country due to lack of budget and because several politicians in the Knesset had believed at the time that your performance might corrupt the minds of the Israeli youth.

"There is no doubt that it was a great missed opportunity to prevent people like you, who shaped the minds of a generation, to come to Israel and perform before the young generation in Israel who admired you and continues to admire you."

The Ambassador will give the letter to John Lennon's sister today at the Beatles' museum and will send the letter to George Harrison's relatives and to Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.

Hopefully Paul and Ringo will follow John Lennon's words and Give Peace a Chance and do Israel's 60th Anniversary celebrations!
