A video protesting Israel posted to YouTube that featured a song by Alicia Keys was removed from the video-sharing website earlier this week after the singer took legal action, citing copyright infringement, WAFA reported.

According to a YouTube notification cited by WAFA, the video, which featured Palestinian Arab women protesting against the Jewish presence in the West Bank, and echoed calls for Keys to cancel her July 4 concert in Tel Aviv, was removed due to a claim by “Alicia Keys c/o Ziffren Brittenheim LLP.”

Keys has repeatedly rejected calls to cancel her show in Tel Aviv on July 4th, saying, “I look forward to my first visit to Israel. Music is a universal language that is meant to unify audiences in peace and love, and that is the spirit of our show.”

    I hope by now everyone realizes how ruthless and inconsiderate the BSers are. Whether it is dividing communities with their push to get food coops to boycott(only one in 10 years of aggressive pushing and that was done in secret) or fracturing University communities with meaningless student activities. And now this YouTube video. BDS is a mildly veiled anti-Semitic cult that has no interest in peace and reconciliation. Thank you Alicia for talking about peace and love.

    A heroine in the spirit of Profiles in Courage. It’s good to know that there are still people who have an inner compass pointing true north.

    Bless you Ms. Keys, for your courageous stance against those who hate the state of Israel, and who stand with the terrorists that want to destroy her.

    You have made many new fans because of this righteous stand, who will always remember your courage and strength of will.

    Thank you.
