Rocker Morrissey has risked dividing his fans by waving an Israeli flag during a concert in Tel Aviv.
The former The Smiths star was in the city for a gig on Saturday and during his visit he was presented with the Key to the City by Mayor Ron Huldai.
During the show at the Bitan 1 venue, he wrapped the Israeli flag around his head, and later revealed he was determined to perform in the troubled region.
Morrissey told local website, “There is no point punishing a nation for something that the leader of the country does or says. Look at Syria.”
