Zion Declares War on British Jazz

Back in the day, my detractors at least attempted to encounter my arguments and debate me. They didn’t get too far. Since the publication of my new book Being in Time: a Post-Political Manifesto, they have changed their tactics: they insist on obliterating my international jazz career.

Earlier today, a book shop  in Oxford that regularly hosts my concerts posted the attached letter (see below) to my Facebook page. The Oxford venue received the letter from the ultra-Zionist Campaign Against Antisemitsm (CAA). The CAA letter  is blatantly and intentionally defamatory and duplicitous.

The CAA and other Zionist institutions have been busy subjecting every British jazz venue that features my music to intense harassment. It is no secret that Zionism has been destroying Palestine, its people and its culture for decades. However, eradicating British culture and British jazz in particular may be taking this carnage one step too far.

A number of the British promoters, venues and festivals who received a copy of this defamatory letter against me attempted to investigate the CAA’s accusations and have found the allegations to be baseless, delusional and duplicitous. By way of illustration, the band I am touring with at the moment is led by a NY Jewish musician and the bass player is an ex- Israeli: not exactly a ‘Neo-Nazi’ quartet.

My best selling book, The Wandering Who, which has been translated into 14 languages and was endorsed by a huge list of academics and humanists worldwide, is denounced in the CAA’s letter as “probably the most anti-Semitic book published in this country in recent years.” But the CAA possesses the legal means to stop the distribution of ‘antisemitic literature.’  In my case they face a real problem; my writings may be controversial, but they are ethically driven, call for a humanist introspective examination, and are well within the boundaries of the law in every country including Israel.

It is noticeable that the CAA’s letter doesn’t provide links to my words. This is not a coincidence. My work is careful and measured. I never refer critically to Jews as a people, race, biology or a collective. I instead scrutinise the meaning of Jewish identity politics and ideology. I do believe that in a free society every ideology and politics must be subject to criticism.

This is the only link the CAA provides to my work: http://linkis.com/bit.ly/nrHBo . Read my words and decide for yourself whether you agree or not.

I define Jewish power as the power to silence criticism of Jewish power. At the moment the CAA and other Jewish organisations are mounting a campaign to suppress any form of legitimate criticism of Israel, Zionism and Jewish political lobbying in the West. Perhaps inadvertently, the CAA has affirmed my definition of Jewish power. They are desperate to suppress any possible criticism related to Jewish politics and ideology. Roger Waters, Vicar Stephen Sizer, David Icke, Ken Livingstone and many others have been subjected to similar vile campaigns that are determined to eliminate basic freedom of speech in the UK.

I do accept that the CAA and other Zionist organisations insist upon remaking Britain into their banana republic- a place deprived of freedom of expression, a country where dissenters are subject to constant threats and harassment. I suppose I could go along with the CAA’s vision of Britain so long as the CAA and its Zionist allies can also improve the weather and make the price of tropical fruits drop significantly.

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 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

  1. “Director of Investigations and Enforcement” has the ring of a thug to it, or the tug of a ring of Jewish enforcers. Either way, as a former student who injured my right thumb during a soccer 5-a-side in the Jericho quarter just off Walton Street in Oxford I strongly suggest Mr. Silverman be admonished for his effrontery by an email or six by VT readers telling him what we think of anti-semitism. The trick is not use expletives or if you find that a struggle, no more than twenty for the sake of goy decency. You can contact Mr. Silverman – a Jimmy Stewart lookalike at –

  2. It’s probably just a problem with typesetting the article and the newsletter. Mine has around 1/4 of the right hand side covered with Vt advertisements.
    This is nothing new. You criticize anything Jewish or Israeli and you get attacked by a swarm of killer bees. They allow no criticism for their actions.

    • I have emailed VT about the comment section being interfered with by advertisements before. Still waiting because I like this site and you can learn a lot from commenters.
