Yusuf’s cancelled Israel performance due to schedule conflict not security

Haaretz.com posted an article following up on the canceled performance in Israel. Yusuf Islam (formerly Cat Stevens) corrected that article’s conclusion, which was based on quotes from the director of the venue that had booked him, that his appearance was canceled due to security concerns.

“This is a storm in a jam jar …. I’d given apologies to the Peres Center some time ago, due to the date of the event coinciding with a scheduled trip to the United States,” Stevens said on Saturday.
