Gilad Atzmon: The Penny Has Dropped

Ynet reported yesterday , that in a BBC global poll gauging  attitudes towards various countries worldwide, Israel came pretty much at the bottom —  There were just three countries less popular than the Jewish State – Pakistan, North Korea and Iran.

The Israelis must find it hard to accept that their  state is one of the least popular countries in the world.   Seemingly,  Zionism — that presented itself as a  promise to bring about  a civilised and lovable Jewish state —  has totally failed.

In spite of relentless Hasbara efforts and the Jewish lobbies around the world, the penny has dropped — People out there see Israel for what it is : Just 21% of those polled wordlwide expressed a positive opinion of Israel.

I guess that the message is clear — the solidarity with the Palestinians is about to become a tidal wave. Palestinian solidarity is the true meaning of humanism.

We are now a mass movement that is becoming increasingly aware of itself as such.

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
