An Israeli Conundrum

By Gilad Atzmon

Israeli News Channel (Channel 10) recently covered my appearance as a guest artist on Pink Floyd's latest album, The Endless River.  On the one hand they were very proud of my artistry, on the other, they admitted, he is not one of us anymore and he is not going to receive a “congratulations call from Bibi.”

The Israeli channel was  honest in  their reporting of  my criticism of Israel and Jewishness. They reported that I had renounced my Israeli citizenship,  They quoted my observation that  Gilad Shalit had been a “post guard in a concentration camp (Gaza)”. And when they referred to  my recent Press TV appearance  about Gaza they translated the word ‘genocide’  as "Shoah."  This is very revealing. While The Guardian Of Zion and the Soros funded BDS  network would never compare the Palestinian plight with the Holocaust, the Israelis understand  that the comparison is natural.

The message is clear.  Israel is more tolerant of its critics than its Diaspora Jewish opposition (the Anti Zionist Zionists). This is why Israel rather than the Jewish Diaspora Left has produced the sharpest criticism of Jewish power, Judaism and Jewishness (Israel Shahak, Yeshayahu Leibowitz, Israel Shamir, Shlomo Sand, and many more).
