Jewish-American reggae singer Matisyahu was disinvited from a Spanish music festival because he would not publicly endorse Palestinian statehood.

The formerly hasidic star was scheduled to perform on August 22 at the Rototom Sunsplash Reggae Festival in eastern Spain. But he had his show cancelled after he refused to release a public statement backing a Palestinian state, according to The Times of Israel.
