Will The Guardian Print The Letter?

leave a comment »

I received this letter as an unsolicited email and I hope that the music editor of the Guardian has the guts to print it?

We shall see, but let’s hope the media can avoid the temptation to lionise anti-Jewish racists, like Gilad Atzmon, in the future.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2009/mar/06/gilad-atzmon-israel-jazz-interview

Sir, John Lewis assures Guardian readers that Gilad Atzmon is getting a lot of attention because he has criticized Israeli actions in Gaza and elsewhere whereas, in fact, Atzmon (“a Jew himself”) writes about “Jewish identity”. The implication, clearly, is that Atzmon is attacked for ctiticizing Israeli policies.

I must therefore assume that John Lewis has not actually read what Gilad Atzmon says about “Jewish identity”. And yet what Atzomon has said about Jews is highlye relevant. I will not attempt to document his every utterance on the subject but confine myself to a few selected items. Atzmon has claimed that:

* Jews are “chameleons” who “are responsible for both Bolshevism and hard capitalism”; and that Jews “are trying to control the world.”
* There are “many questions concerning the validity of the widely accepted Holocaust narrative”. (Indeed, he has stated that he is quite happy that he circulated Holocaust denial propaganda.)
* Jews were responsible for “killing Jesus”.

It is therefore perhaps not a surprise that Atzmon considers the burning of synagogues “a rational act”.

I would thus suggest that it is at least possible that Atzmon’s “BlackBerry is constantly buzzing” because of Atzmon’s oft-proclaimed anti-Semitism and not due to his criticism of any specific Israeli policy.

Regards,

Inna Tysoe”


Update:
Z Word hard hitting headline says it all: Music for Antisemites. I am glad that others are picking up on the Guardian’s hagiography of Aztmon.
