Les « caprices » de Benjamin Netanyahu

The decision was taken on the grounds of “health and safety” with the university claiming it did not have enough resources to mitigate the “risks.”

6 March 2015 — Gilad Atzmon

What is common to both Gaza and Manchester? 

This week, at least, Zionist aggression  is one answer.

The Royal Northern College of Music (RNMC) stated yesterday that it could no longer ensure “the safety of all involved” after extreme intimidation by a foreign Zionist lobby that demanded they cancel my Orient House Ensemble’s music performance.

I Support Israel’s National Bill By Gilad Atzmon

25 November 2014 — Gilad Atzmon

Mazal Tov: a controversial bill that officially defines Israel as the “Nation-State of the Jewish People” was approved by the Israeli cabinet last Sunday.

Finally Israel has acknowledged its true Jewish nature. Instead of pretending to be a ‘Jewish Democracy” – a contradiction in terms, the Jewish State admits that it is a theocracy guided by Jewish racial supremacist ideology.

[Sometimes the imperialists let a little too much truth slip –NP]

On the Times of Israel article “When Genocide is Permissible”

(Vox full text of deleted article)

The English-language Israeli publication Times of Israel today published, and then quickly deleted, a blog post by the writer Yochanan Gordon with the extremely inflammatory headline “When Genocide is Permissible.” The post does not explicitly endorse the genocide of Palestinians, but it asks if doing so would be morally justified after building up the case it would be and presenting only evidence in the affirmative.
