Gilad Atzmon on George Galloway’s Sputnik


I am particularly happy about this interview with MP George Galloway.

sputnikphotoThis is an intensive discussion on Jewish ID politics, Palestine, progressive false terminology, the ‘Left,’ whatever is left, Pink Floyd, Jazz, saxophone and beyond…

I guess that in spite of the relentless Jewish smear campaign against me and my writing, my reading of Jewish Identity has miraculously prevailed.

I am honoured to have been invited to RT’s Sputnik. I was particularly cheered up when I realised that George and Gayatri  provided me a platform to express my thoughts freely.

Last but not least, George was kind labelling me the ‘world’s best sax player.’ I am indeed a successful musician but I am not the world’s best. However, I certainly plan to become the best, I am practicing my sax on a daily basis.


Author Details
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 the 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 available at
