Hope for an End to Intimidation, Harassment and Bullying

By Gilad Atzmon | February 2, 2020

On Thursday night, the Jewish charity, Campaign Against Antisemitsm (CAA) declared that it would  “be selecting a number of future dates on which to picket the 606 [jazz] club over its decision”  to present a jazz performance  by yours truly. With this threat, CAA crossed the  line. This time it wasn’t just going after me or my band, this time its threat encompassed an entire community of musicians and music lovers for whom the 606 club is a preeminent venue, and none of whom have anything to do with me or my ideas.

Such threats are anathema to the values of British and western culture: the way to counter ideas with which they don’t agree is to present their own position. The tactic of gross intimidation, of menacing an entire community over the legal speech of one member are more characteristic  of organised crime than of a British charity.

Yesterday I reported the CAA’s actions to the police.  They took my complaint very seriously and I was interviewed for two hours. I had the strong impression that the matter was already known to the police.

 During the time the police interviewed me, I received a message that the CAA is under investigation by the Charities Commission.

I was advised that  every musician, music venue, promoter or audience member who is or has been subject to any intimidation or harassment by the CAA  should contact the police immediately.

 No one should be harassed, especially by a charity, and I want to believe that the threats to British politicians, artists, intellectuals, journalists, venues and ordinary people are about to come to an end. Such a development will make life safer and more comfortable for Jews and Gentiles alike.

  2. These low-life Zionists absolutely never miss an opportunity to exploit an opportunity. Their psychosis, of course, is based on the paranoid fixation that, if even one log is allowed to be dislodged and permit a trickle of truth to flow through the dam, the entire structure will willy nilly fail and a veritable flood will engulf the Zionist enterprise. May that happen to a “final solution”; the Palestinians — history’s ultimate victim — would be pleased and relieved.

    Gilad Atzmon is a great musician and great human being. Godspeed to him, his community, his professional colleagues….
