At last, the Beatles are kosher.
After forbidding the music of the Beatles for 43 years, Israel has announced a lift on the ban by inviting the two remaining members for a visit to the holy land. The Middle Eastern nation originally outlawed the Fab Four from performing during their run in the ’60s after concerns over whether their music would corrupt the country’s youth.
Recently the Israeli ambassador in London, Ron Prosor, asked Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr to visit the country this May in coordination with its 60th anniversary celebrations.
Israel's ambassador to London, Ron Prosor, is expected to give a letter of apology to John Lennon's sister Julia Baird at the Beatles Story museum in Liverpool.
