Israel in Doggie-do as Snoop cries off

Great news!! According to Ynet, Snoop Dogg has developed some logistical difficulties when it comes to playing Israel. Those logistical difficulties are proving to be so logistically difficult that he won't be playing Israel after all. But the logistical difficulties diminish by the time we get from the article's sub-heading and they become "contractual difficulties" in the main body of the article.

Another one bites the dust: Despite previous press announcements, famous rapper Snoop Dogg’s scheduled performance at the Rishon Lezion Amphitheater has been canceled, sources in the production told Ynet Wednesday.

A source in the production said that the concert has been called off due to "contractual difficulties" between the artist and the producers; and not because of low ticket sales. The production team was given the cancellation notice over the phone Tuesday.
The list of artists calling off their proposed gigs in Israel is growing. See here. Now what excuses can we find for McCartney, Morrisey, New York Dolls, etc?
