NFL players pull out of Israel trip, don’t want to be ‘used’

Jerusalem Post, February 11, 2017:

According to Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, the trip is supposed to give the players a balanced picture of Israel.

Three of the NFL players who were scheduled to arrive in Israel on Monday as part of a campaign to showcase the country’s “true face” to the world, pulled out of the trip, explaining that they do not want to be “used” by the Israeli government.

Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett was the first to pull out of the tour, which was planned for 11 football stars in a joint initiative between the Ministry of Strategic Affairs and Public Diplomacy.
The trip will include visits to Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, the Dead Sea and Christian sites. According to Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, the trip is supposed to give the players a balanced picture of Israel.
