Elton asked to stay at home

It's now a pretty well-rehearsed routine: Large celebrity gets invited to play Israel for large sums of money; celebrity accepts; human rights campaigners point out the moral grey area of going to have fun in Israel while it's behaving as it does; celebrity keeps head down, banks cheque.

Your partners for the latest waltz: Elton John and The British Committee for Universities of Palestine.
