No one exemplifies the sickening attitude of the Jerusalemite better than Mondoweiss, a Jewish progressive outlet openly dedicated to the concealment of Jewish power and the political impact of Jewish culture. Mondweiss’ editorial staff seems utterly confused by Miko Peled’s momentary endorsement of universal freedom of speech.
It is clear that in the new narrative, citizenship is biologically and not geographically determined. It seems odd that so many in the West who claim to oppose racism, so easily accept a race-based system of ethnic cleansing.
Finally, the 2012 documentary Gilad and all that Jazz made it to youtube. You can now enjoy this great film by Golriz Kolahi. You can meet Gilad's bitterest adversaries and judge for yourself whether they have something to offer. You can listen to Gilad's music, meet the OHE, the Blockheads, Robert Wyatt, his family and obviously learn about Gilad's thoughts.
I’ve been an admirer of Coltrane’s music since re-discovering his work when I was in College twelve years ago, and with The Spirit of Trane, it’s one of the most emotional, beautiful, and touching tributes to the master that Gilad and the Orient House ensemble brings here. As he once said again about music, “I think music is an instrument. It can create the initial thought patterns that can change the thinking of people.”
Lesher proclaims that he won’t tolerate attacks on his"religious life just because they come wrapped in a Palestinian flag.” This seems to be a legitimate demand. I wouldn’t like to see anyone interfering with Lesher or anyone else’s religious life. Interestingly, none of the quotes in Lesher’s article posited any form of interference or threat to Lesher’s ‘religious life.’

Conflation is usually understood as the merging of two or more distinct sets of information, texts, ideas, etc. into one. Does this concept apply to Zionism and Judaism? Are Zionism and Judaism distinct terms? Are Jews and Zionism categorically different from each other?
The following article was published on this site in May 2013. In recent weeks we have witnessed some anti Zionist rabbinical Jews outraged by the attempt to equate Judaism and Zionism. I plan to write on the topic extensively but a brief look at this 1942 rabbinical affirmation of Zionism is rather revealing:
How did America manage to dismiss the prophecy of Henry Ford and Richard Herrnstein? In this talk Gilad Atzmon attempts to identify the core elements that led to the current dystopia: ID Politics, tyranny of correctness, New Left's biologism, Cultural Marxism and more.
Of course I have never joined the Labour Party as it is a treacherous political institution. But it does make me giggle to witness the Labour Party expel, one after another, loathsome Jewish crypto Zionists. I am referring to those who for years have collaborated with the most notorious Hasbara merchants, and who accuse those who support the Palestinians of anti-Semitism for criticising Jewish political power and Jewish ID politics.

Being In Time: A Post-Political Manifesto' is Gilad Atzmon's latest pithy book - its title a nod to Heidegger, the John Coltrane of the philosophy world. It broadens the arguments of his previous 'The Wandering Who? A Study of Jewish Identity Politics' (which has sold internationally by the bucket load).
