Devout Muslims and their leftist lapdogs are norming systematic Jew-hatred worldwide under the euphemistically labeled BDS movement — a nazi-esque movement to alienate, isolate and destroy the Jewish state. Worse still, it is funded by wealthy liberal American Jews, as I have documented here at the Geller Report in numerous exposes. And now it has the Democrat Party leadership on its side, as well as leftist pressure groups such as the ACLU. It’s unconscionable how the left is lining up systematically against Israel while ignoring the actual human rights abuses committed by numerous other countries. It reveals the Jew-hatred that is at the bottom of all this.
“Protest against Israel Philharmonic Orchestra in New York,” by Nitsan Keidar, Arutz Sheva, February 4, 2019 (thanks to Wendy):
On Sunday, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra performed at the prestigious Carnegie Hall in New York, in the presence of the Consul General of Israel in New York Dani Dayan. The concert was part of a tour that began last weekend and ends on Saturday.
The US tour was conducted with the assistance of the American Friends of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and the Consulate General of Israel in New York. More than 100 members of the orchestra arrived in the US, led by conductor Yoel Levy, who replaced Maestro Zubin Mehta who fell ill. The soloist at the New York concert was famed violinist Itzhak Perlman.
A few days before the concert, a protest against the orchestra began on social networks, led by Adalah, a group of activists affiliated with the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. The organization calls for a cultural boycott of Israel and claims that “Israel’s science, culture and academia are trying to cover up its terrible crimes against humanity.”
On Sunday, a demonstration attended by dozens of activists was held outside the hall where the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra was playing. The protesters were demonstrating against the performance of the orchestra and against Israeli culture in general. The protesters held up signs reading, among other things: “Israeli cultural institutions should be boycotted, such as the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra which participates in the Israeli apartheid regime”, “The State of Israel harms Palestinian culture: closes theaters, does not allow cultural events to take place, and prohibits Palestinian artists from traveling”, “Israel systematically negates the basic rights of Palestinians, whether they live under Israeli military occupation, as unequal citizens in Israel or as refugees, and their right to return to their homeland”….
