Gilad Atzmon is an Israeli-born British jazz saxophonist, novelist, political activist and writer.

Atzmon's album Exile was BBC jazz album of the year in 2003. Playing over 100 dates a year,[4] he has been called "surely the hardest-gigging man in British jazz." His albums, of which he has recorded nine to date, often explore the music of the Middle East and political themes. He has described himself as a "devoted political artist." He supports the Palestinian right of return and the one-state solution in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

His criticisms of Zionism, Jewish identity, and Judaism, as well as his controversial views on The Holocaust and Jewish history have led to allegations of antisemitism from both Zionists and anti-Zionists. A profile in The Guardian in 2009 which described Atzmon as "one of London's finest saxophonists" stated: "It is Atzmon's blunt anti-Zionism rather than his music that has given him an international profile, particularly in the Arab world, where his essays are widely read."

His new book The Wandering Who? is now availble at Amazon.com

Jeremy Corbyn and the Jews

The Brits are yearning for a radical change

By Gilad Atzmon

By Gilad Atzmon

The relationship between Jeremy Corbyn and British Jews can be summarized into a brief observation:

While Corbyn’s success represents a hugely popular shift within British political thinking, the orchestrated Jewish campaign against him is there to suggest that once again, Jews set themselves against the people they dwell upon.

The vastly growing popularity of Jeremy Corbyn amongst Brits can be easily explained. Following decades of cultural Marxist, divisive Identiterian politics and Zionist-Neocon domination within the British Left, Corbyn brings along a refreshing ideological alternative. Corbyn seems to re-unite the Brits. He cares for the weak. He opposes interventionist wars. He represents the return of the good old left as opposed to New Labour’s affinity with big money, choseness  and exceptionalism. He cares for the students and the youth. He thinks about the future and promises to undo the damage created by Blair and Cameron. But as Britain sees the rise of a hugely popular ideological movement, many Jewish institutions see Corbyn as an arch enemy. They would prefer to see him gone and have used nearly every trick in the book to discredit him.

In the last few days we have noticed a tidal wave of Jewish institutional opposition to Corbyn. First it was the Daily Mail that attempted to throw Zionist mud in the direction of the man who is destined to take over what is left out of the Labour party. Surprisingly, not a single British media outlet picked the Mail’s dirt for a few days. Eventually the notorious Zionist Jewish Chronicle had to take the gloves off just ahead of Sabbath and lead the battle against the emerging socialist leader.

In the weekend the Jewish Chronicle (JC) outlined its problems with Corbyn while claiming to “speak for the vast majority of British Jews… expressing deep foreboding at the prospect of Mr Corbyn’s election as Labour leader.”

Apparently, on behalf of ‘the vast majority of British Jews,’ The JC wanted to know whether it is true that Corbyn donated money to Dier Yassin Remembered (DYR), an organisation that was founded to commemorate the brutal massacre of an entire Palestinian village by right wing Jewish paramilitary fighters in 1948. I guess that the tens of thousands who joined the labour party in the last weeks just to support the first true British labour ideologist for generations were delighted to learn that their favourite candidate supported DYR and truly opposes Zionist barbarism.

On behalf of the “vast majority of British Jews” the JC demanded to be fully informed about the non-existent relationship between Corbyn and British DYR chairman Paul Eisen. The JC didn’t approve of the connection between Corbyn and pro-Palestinian Rev Stephen Sizer either. Corbyn was also asked to clarify his association with the Hamas, the Hezbollah and Palestinian cleric Raead Salah. I guess that the JC editorial would like to define the list of kosher ‘friends’ eligible for British elected politicians. Until this happens, the message that is delivered by the Brits is lucid: it is actually Corbyn’s firm stand on justice and his ability to befriend true freedom fighters and humanists which makes him into the most popular politician in Britain at the moment.

If someone in the JC fails to read the picture, I will outline it in the clearest form. British people are expressing a clear fatigue of corrupted party politics as much as they are tired of Zionist interventionist wars. They are begging for a change, they demand equality and the prospect of a better future and a leader with ethical integrity. Whether Corbyn can provide these qualities, time will tell. But the British yearning for a radical change has been formally established.

Disrespectfully and outrageously, in the open and on behalf of “the vast majority of British Jews”, the JC set an ultimatum to the most popular man in British politics.

“If Mr Corbyn is not to be regarded from the day of his election as an enemy of Britain’s Jewish community, he has a number of questions which he must answer in full and immediately.”

One would expect the JC editorial to learn something from Jewish history. Those British Jews who insist to speak ‘on behalf’ of their people should at least pretend to uphold some minimal respect to British good manners.

The JC, however, admitted that Corbyn ignored them for over a week – “No response has been forthcoming” from Corbyn or his office, the JC wrote.  Though I do not have any reason to believe that Corbyn has a cell of hatred in his body, I wouldn’t like to see him bowing to Jewish political pressure. What we need is a firm British leader dedicated to equality, justice, peace and British interests instead of just another Sabbos Goy and servant of the Lobby as well as big money.

    Initially I warmed to Corbyn a little. He is not part of our self-serving political elites, and like Farage he has been talking about things outside of the Westminster bubble. Unlike Yvette Cooper, Corbyn at least stands for something. But he is wrong and always has been.

    This is the same Corbyn who refused to expose or even acknowledge the Islington care home scandal when it was brought to his attention decades ago and who thought so highly of Milosevic. His policies are all about state control of the economy, unilateral disarmament, and making the Bank of England underwrite deficit financing. He wants the government to spend more and print more money.

    He stands for everything that failed in the past and has nothing new to say – the list of totalitarian “socialist” regimes is long and depressing and Corbyn believes politicians and bureaucrats can take care of business better than the market – an approach China long ago realised was doomed.

    While Corbyn’s success represents a hugely popular shift within British political thinking, the orchestrated Jewish campaign against him is there to suggest that once again, Jews set themselves against the people they dwell upon.

    These few lines describe the whole jews problem. The other problem is people pay too much attention to what these people say.

    No wonder people have decided to boycott what is jewish. A lot of other people have been asked if they want to be brittish or convert others to their liking, why can’t jews be asked the same question.

  7. John Kirby  August 18, 2015 at 5:55 pm

    Why would Jewish organizations turn against Mr Corbyn? because he has sympathy for the Palestinians, because their loyalties lie with Israel; their divided loyalty.

    Regarding Mr Corbyn’s policies; I am a conservative Republican, but I agree that certain assets should remain in public ownership, such as the railway lines, roads and water. Even the Romans had public utilities. But free enterpise, free markets, competition, freedom of choice, free speech and property rights brung prosperity; Socialism does not.

    Rise up you British! From all appearances, Corbyn is your man to drive out the hateful and reclaim Britain for your own. You may never have another chance!

    One of the question which Mr Corbyn was ordered to ‘must answer’ by the JC below speaks of
    ‘..convicted of blood libel..’
    Convicted by whom ?
    By the Sanhedrin.

    7. Why did you describe Raead Salah, a man convicted of the blood libel, as an ‘honoured citizen’?

  10. Aziz Khalfan  August 18, 2015 at 11:44 am

    Ingrates often forget their place with ease but there is no harm in reminding them.

    With regards to the JC, if it is their duty to advocate for Zionism instead of the UK Jews’ welfare then they better pack and go live in Israel proper.

    The bolshevik are having great victories around the world since the Prince of Peace take over the US in 2009. The Nazis are going underground to rebuilt their bases. It would be interesting to see Trump facing Sanders in the upcoming election in US. Would you be surprise that Corbyn’s rise in UK? I am not, everything is moving along according to the “Plan”.

  12. Heinrich R.  August 18, 2015 at 6:29 am

    To describe JC’s actions correcly and fairly, the English language lack words that could suffice. Hence the word ‘chutzpah’ has been borrowed and adopted from an alien culture, to describe what is foreign to british civilisation.
