Protesters Now Attacking Israeli Musicians

The malicious campaign run by the coalition of leftist academics, internationalists and Islamists against Israel continues unabated.

We know that in the U.S. and elsewhere, speeches by current or former Israeli officials are disrupted, and there have been organized boycotts of Israeli academics.

Now they even are going after musicians:

A lunchtime concert in central London by a renowned classical quartet became a platform for protests against Israel in the latest manifestation of how culture has become enmeshed in the bitter politics of the Middle East.

Within the first 10 minutes of the performance by the Jerusalem Quartet at the Wigmore Hall a woman stood up to "sing out" her condemnation of Israeli policy, setting the pattern for interruptions by people strategically positioned among the audience.

The result was that BBC Radio 3's live recording of the concert had to be broken off under extraordinary scenes with the musicians engaged in a debate on stage with the protesters over the conduct of Israel in the Occupied Territories.

Only Israelis are singled out for such treatment base on nationality and religion, and there is a direct connection to anti-Semitic violence throughout Europe.

Unlike the fictional wave of right wing violence in this country, there is a real wave of anti-Semitic violence sweeping Europe.

  1. Sickening. This is starting to seem like Germany in the 1930's.

  2. Are the Hutaree part of that fictional wave of right-wing violence in this country? What about the gas line cut at the house of someone thought to be a Democratic congressman after the address was posted on a right-wing blog? The brick thrown through a Democratic representative's window after the health-care vote?

    The only thing fictional here is your fictional wave of right-wing violence. Stop defending delusional people or you're going to end up just like them. Let's see if you even have the courage to post this.

  3. So what does the EU do about it, nothing. Anti-semitism is a part of Europe and it has now joined forces with the Moslem community. It is interesting how for decades after WW2 they hid their anti-semitism in the guise of anti-israel rhethoric. Of course we all knew their ideology to be biased but could not absolutely prove it until now. The rise of virulent and violent anti-semitism is not unexpected, but for many they didn't think it would happen so fast and with such compliance by the European governments themselves. (Why that is I do not know, considering the amount of Nazis collaborators throughout Europe. Remember the European governments today are peopld by these collaboratos grandchildren)
    Look at the latest stupidity by the Bristish government in shutting down their embassy in Israel. Did they shut down in any nation that calls for and celebrates the murder of Jews, of course not. The EU is not different today than under Hitler and no differnt today then during the crusader period of persecution.
    The only difference here is that Jews are not afraid to speak up and truthfully the more debate you have, the more the reality of Israel's cause will be heard and the reality of the false accusations will be understood. But then of course, that surmizes that those protestors actually want an answer from Israel and the Jews instead of just spewing their ignorant hateful bile. But hopefully the other citizens of the EU are not too afraid or myrred in their own ignorance to listen to what is truly being said by thinking persons in response to the on going hatefest. Unfortunately I have yet to see it publicly maybe its time that those who love true freedom and relish the way of the democracy took to the streets as well instead of hiding in their homes with their heads down hoping it will all blow over. They were wrong about Hitler being a passing fad, and I fear they are wrong about this hatefest being a passing fad as well.

  4. That's an unnerving story. Those who don't remember history may be doomed to repeat it, but so are those of us who do.

  5. wow, I thought this was a good post until in the end when you mention "the fictional wave of right wing violence". Do you truely believe it's fictional? Maybe an academic like yourself doesn't see it. Come out to the Northwest and then tell us about facts or fictions...
