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, 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."
This futile battle against a British academic institute depicts British Jewry as opponents of academic freedom, free speech and British values. I wonder how long it will take British Jews to understand the harm inflicted on them by the Board Of Deputies.
Gilad Atzmon discusses Israel and Palestine, after one of his gigs was cancelled due to ‘safety concerns’ after the venue was ‘blitzed with a lot of extremist and threatening messages’ from a pro-Israeli group.
The BBC is under attack yet again by some Jewish ‘community leaders’ and their caretakers within British politics. This time the British broadcast dared to invite a British MP to participate in the primetime TV show, Question Time.
Once again, ‘scandal in Germany.’ This time the ultra Zionist AJC (American Jewish Committee) is empowered to define the boundaries of an exchange in Germany about Palestine and the hope for peace in the Middle East.
Palestinian official says medical examination shows Minister Ziad Abu Ein died from being struck and inhaling tear gas; Israeli source: He died from a heart attack. I am not surprised by this emerging dispute.
I prefer to deal with hard core Zionists and Israeli Right wing ideologues rather than with the so-called ‘anti’ and their culture of deceit. At least with Zionists, I know exactly what I am up against.
Three years after the publication of The Wandering Who, I discussed with Bill Alford different aspects of Jewish power & controlled opposition. We elaborated on Identity politics & the tribal ideology that drive Zionism as well as the so-called ‘anti.’
- If anyone still had hope that there was something positive that Progressive Jews could add to the discourse, Blumenthal’s latest interview will end that idea. He exhibits the ultimate form of Jewish racism, goy hatred: in fact, far more insidious than hard-core right wing Zionism.
Max Blumenthal, a Jewish pro Palestinian decided to take the battle against Gregor Gysi, the German Left Party’s leader, who framed him as an anti semite, to the toilet. An expose of tribal panic, victimhood and obnoxious intrusiveness.
