An Israeli court has ordered Justine Sachs and Nadia Abu-Shanab to pay damages to three Israeli teenagers after they wrote a letter urging Lorde to cancel her concert in Israel. It's believed to be the first effective use of a 2011 Israeli law allowing civil lawsuits of anyone who encourages a boycott of Israel. However, Sachs, who is Israeli, and Abu-Shanab, a Palestinian, are refusing to pay the court-ordered amount. Instead, they've decided to redirect the donations they've received to the Gaza Mental Health Foundation. “Our advice from New Zealand legal experts has been clear", they said in a statement, "Israel has no right to police the political opinions of people across the world."
