Paul McCartney backs Israel animal rights group over fur ban

Singer and former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney has lent his support to Israeli animal rights activists fighting to pass a bill banning all fur trade in Israel. If the bill passes, Israel will be the first country to ban the export, import and sale of any kind of fur. Last week, the bill was reviewed by the Knesset Education Committee in preparation for a second and third reading.

The activists working on behalf of the bill received support Sunday from Sir Paul, who said on his Web site: "I, along with members of my family, have been long-standing opponents of the commercial fur trade. The reason for this is simple - fur is cruel and unnecessary .... To skin an animal alive - as many are - for a product nobody needs is beyond comprehension."

McCartney is a longtime vegetarian for reasons of conscience and has been active for animal rights for many years.

His statement was prompted by a personal appeal from the Israeli organization Let the Animals Live. McCartney said that if the bill is passed, Israel will set an example for the rest of the world: "By banning such a cruel industry Israel would provide a shining example in care and compassion that others would be sure to follow," wrote McCartney
