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. 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.

  4. 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...
