Should A Circus in Amman be Boycotted Because of Israel?

It seems even something as innocent as a circus can stir things up for some Pro-Palestinian activists; Is 'Dear' the English equivalent to Habibi? and the censorship of graffiti in Syria is coming to Lebanon as well.
Majd does not get excited about clowns and elephants because he does not like the fact that the a-political circus, or malignant freak show for all intents and purposes, is supposedly also going to Israel.
Many have reacted to his call for a boycott, labeling him grumpy, accurate or just plain ridiculous. Is he going too far by taking the fun away from kids because he links the occupation of Palestine with cotton candy and giggling clowns?
Is seems many of our bloggers have gotten up on the wrong side of the bed today. This female Jordanian blogger has a go at starting emails with 'Dears' but thankfully, offer several acceptable alternatives.
She seems frustrated. Perhaps a trip to the circus would calm things down?
Censored. Why now? Graffiti in Beirut post Arab revolutions.
No one is surprised that inSyria, stencils depicting Assad as Hitler have " not only being blacked out but also replaced by pro-regime writings besides them. After this being done, the graffiti become more credible and the censoring parties become obsolete in their act. "
The shocker for this Lebanese blogger is that the censorship is happening in Lebanon as well.
