Islington Council has decided to prevent me from performing with the Blockheads at our annual London Christmas concert on 21 December. This ludicrous decision by the Council was in response to pressure from a single pro-Israel campaigner who said he would not attend the concert if I were on stage.

The Blockheads have twice written to the Council demanding its decision be reversed. I have played with the Blockheads for 25 years, we’ve performed more than a thousand concerts, including at least two in Islington, without incident. I appealed to the Council to reconsider, submitting two detailed letters that countered each claim made against me. In return the council shifted its claimed rationale for banning me and answered my appeals with a blitz of misquotes from my work and claims about me that were at best insulting and at worst slanderous, all of which were suspiciously similar to Zionist sources.

Of course, I have never uttered nor been charged with hate speech. Despite my spotless record, the Council decided to ban me, in defiance of my free speech rights and interfering with my obligation to earn a living. Bearing in mind the bizarre reasoning the Council used to ban me from playing the saxophone, I am left wondering if I may still use a public toilet in Islington Council controlled territory or just drive through the borough on my way to a concert at the Vortex Jazz Club on the other side of town.

The war against me has clearly stepped up: pro Israel pressure groups have been hard at work trying to bankrupt me by preventing me from pursuing my music and literary careers. I guess that this means I must be doing something right.

And this isn’t all bad news. In the course of this battle, the Council managed to provide me with some precious materials. In the coming days we will examine them closely and see what they reveal about the level of Zionist occupation within British local authorities and the Islington Council in particular.

When I landed in Britain in 1994, Britain was a wonderful free and tolerant space. Sadly, Britain has gradually been reduced to an authoritarian society. As Jeremy Corbyn and his many supporters discovered, unless you adhere to certain pro Israel politics, your right to speak your mind or even to make a living is endangered. I guess that Orwell’s 1984 was not just a work of fiction but a prophetic text and a prescient description of present day England.

  1. Fighting The “Good Fight”–What Is Involved, Why And How–Hurray For Gilad

    Gilad: u along w. all Christians, and other humanity too, are engaged in a deadly struggle w. the foremost SATANIC force which controls the nation’s CURRENCY (not real money) and banking.

    So what is “satanism”?–it’s extreme SUBJECTIVISM, reality held to be mere creation of mentality/consciousness, making the subject to be God, the creator–satanism, literally–very simple, eh?–it’s SOOOOO simple that people (perhaps even urself) too easily overlook it and the sublimity of it all.

    For note Christ = TRUTH (Gosp. JOHN 14:6), truth requiring criterion of OBJECTIVE (Aristotelian) reality. And don’t forget JOHN 8:44 where Christ “cops the case” of Jew SUBJECTIVISM,

    “You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”

    In other text renderings, the word “character” is left out, and it simply reads, “…he speaks of his own…,” which surely seems to otherwise nearly explicitly denote SUBJECTIVISM.

    And observe further, such SUBJECTIVISM is the very meaning and essence of “midrash” (interpretation), “Oral Law Tradition,” and Talmud (see,, and for best expo).

    It’s simply notorious that Jews, collectively, consider themselves co-equal w. God, even in at least one case in the Talmud, over-ruling God’s judgment, “my sons have defeated me.”

    So what, u may ask, exactly is it Jews use to so totally dominate the gentiles? Well, note many gentiles, numbering far more than Jews, themselves adopt subjectivism, hence satanism, in many cases rather un-wittingly. But Jews are most committed, dedicated, and COLLECTIVISTICALLY engaged in the “group-think” application of such extreme subjectivism, far more organized, cohesive, and incisively led than the often half-baked gentiles who are not nearly as well organized or even dedicated, Jews therefore DOMINATING and leading the satanists/subjectivists among gentiles, even though far out-numbered.

    Thus we see the psychologic/philosophic/abstract aspect of the culture. The practical side is that Jews see to it they dominate the central-banking and fiat-currency systems so that they further apply their rule and domination–this is what u are presently feeling and experiencing as anyone does who becomes as public and hence obnoxious to the Jew/satanic establishment as u have.

    Thus u must not withdraw or recede; rather, u must double-down and apply and exert to the utmost the Christian understanding and teaching–it’s relatively easily done–simply compare urself to Christ (hence TRUTH) and his persecution and say why and how–it will be effective for many people.

    Specifically, note the “Judeo-Christian” (JC–see and for expo) heretics and traitors, as especially in USA who support terror-state of Israel–it’s these sort of gross heretics, pretending to Christianity which so much enables the satanic element and Israeli terror-state.

    For example, these JCs say Christ was “Jew”–which is un-true, “Jew” defined as follower of Pharisees and Talmud, Christ being Galilean descended fm Judeans, not Jew.

    Perhaps most of all, note the great equivocation problem w. word, “faith,” which properly only means LOYALTY, not “beleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeevin’,” which beleeeeeeeeeevin’ doesn’t make anything true. One can beleeeeeeeeeeeev and beleeeeeeeeeeeeeeev, but the facts and reality remain what they are. Pretending that “beleeeeeeeeeeeeeeevin’” makes something true is just satanism and subjectivism itself, making oneself God, the creator.

    Christianity is about TRUTH first and most; NOT about mere “love,” for “love” is something to be done for something else–like truth and honesty, reality and objectivity.

    Good luck, Gilad; God is with u, as u’re absolutely right–if u weren’t doing something right, those satanists wouldn’t be afflicting u so–like they afflicted Christ. But if u expose them, it will likely cause them to draw back, even though nothing is guaranteed. At least u’ll know u’re fighting the “good fight,” the only fight, that MUST be fought. God-speed.

    Banned from playing a music concert…for having strong opinions about Israel. …in Britain! It’s a very sad state of affairs. This sort of thing is becoming too blatant, there will eventually need to be some pushback.

    Foresight Requires Anticipation Of Inevitable Economic Collapse

    If nothing else, note the economic and money/banking system must eventually implode and collapse, people impoverished, stricken–question is WHAT then will they do? For it will then be an opportunity for gentiles. That’s why it’s essential to foresee that eventuality and prepare, laying grounds, setting things up for the people’s understanding and guidance. In Jew S A, we should enact States-rights and nullification, and institute gold/silver as the only money.

    Britain has never supported untrammeled speech like USA. Although the Lord Chamberlain gave up central state censorship of the stage in the nineteen sixties, local councils exercise control by withholding public performance licences. This was used against bands like the Sex Pistols and films like Life of Brian in nineteen seventies.

    Kafka’s paranoia about power has become the manual for Jewish governance.

  7. ” I guess that Orwell’s 1984 was not just a work of fiction but a prophetic text and a prescient description of present day England.”
    No! Jews are the heroic freedom fighters in Orwell’s 1984.
    “In 1949, one year after the publication of Maurice Bardèche’s Nuremberg or the Promised Land, another prophetic book was published, George Orwell’s novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. In it Orwell describes a scary future in which there is a single party dictatorship, living conditions are drab, food is scarce, people’s thoughts are openly controlled by Big Brother, their words and actions are monitored through “telescreens” which they cannot turn off, they are given no choice over what they view on these screens, there is only one channel on the “telescreens” and one film (always a war film) in the theatres, in one such film refugees trying to escape are shot to the delight of the audience. Some of these refugees are Jewish, “the Enemy of the People” is a Jew, Emmanuel Goldstein, who is condemned for “advocating freedom of speech, freedom of the Press, freedom of assembly, freedom of thought,” people are openly taught to hate him and his followers during “Two Minutes Hate” and “Hate Week”; sex is discouraged through a “Junior Anti-Sex League,” the Inner Party is called the “Inner Party,” thoughtcrime is called “thoughtcrime,” Thought Police are called “Thought Police,” the media propagate obvious, self-contradictory lies such as: “War Is Peace,” “Freedom Is Slavery,” “Ignorance Is Strength,” people are told that democracy is “impossible” (although the Party is said to be its “guardian”), capitalism is viewed as a barbarity that has “vanished.”
    The world described in 1984 little resembles that of the Occident today. We live in multi-party democracies. Our mainstream media tell us not only that democracy is possible and a very good thing, but that its triumph everywhere is virtually inevitable—an inevitability which we should make every effort to encourage. Living conditions are generally good, food is abundant. Capitalism is alive and well and is promoted as an economic panacea. Our politicians advocate the same things as does Emmanuel Goldstein. Our media propagate obvious lies such as: “Diversity is our strength,” but they at least avoid flagrant self-contradictions (some kinds of diversity may indeed be a source of strength, although certainly not the radical ethnic diversity that our media promote). Refugees do not flee our societies, but rather risk their lives trying to get into them. We are not taught to hate, but to tolerate. Sex is not generally discouraged, even among the young. With our multi-channel televisions and the internet we are free to see, hear, read, and discuss almost anything, if not everywhere. Freedom reigns.
    Yet to some that freedom seems, if not illusory, useless. It is useless because people’s thoughts and actions are monitored and controlled not by anything outside themselves but by their own warped consciences—consciences deliberately warped by our mainstream media, consciences closely resembling Bardèche’s “universal conscience.”

    Islington is Zionist occupied? Lol. When it isn’t the transgender flag, the UN flag or the EU flag, the Palestinian flag is flown over the town hall.

    Though not the English one until very recently after much campaigning for St George’s day. That was considered too racist for an English town hall.

    Islington is the Corbyn heartland. He’s the long serving MP of half of it and his even more boastfully anti-British follower Emily Thornberry is the MP of the other half.

    Who at the council decided to ban you?

    Also, I think I’ll get a ticket or two if you’re reinstated. Or even if not. It looks like a good event.

    Best to provide a link too!

    They want to silence all dissent, regardless from what quarter it comes from. The genocide of the native British people is underway. We saw this as well in the Marxist USSR in which 65 million people were exterminated, any people who dared to speak out and stop what the Marxist Supremacists, those who silence all human rights activists and dissenters. For those that don’t know about what has happened to human rights activists in the old Marxist USSR before: and

    Indeed, one of many ironies. Along with their obsessive race consciousness, the like of which we haven’t seen since, well, since Godwin’s Law was last invoked.

    pressure from a single pro-Israel campaigner who said he would not attend the concert if I were on stage

    The desperation and panic of Jews / Zionists and their left is palpable, hence these outrageous attacks on human rights.
    Their power has been enabled by the fake & easily debunked ‘holocaust’ nonsense.

    Disagree with a Zionist? ‘You’re a ‘Nazi’. And if you’re a ‘Nazi’, ‘you are supporter of the extermination of Jews’. What crock and now they sense that things are changing because they are.
    Get off your knees and speak up about the biggest scam the world has ever seen. The time is right.

    An obvious question is why do some people want ‘6M Jews & 5M others’ to be dead?
    Revisionist research brings good news, those ‘11,000,000’ were definitely not murdered.
    One would think that Jews especially would be elated to hear the good news.
    Instead, arrests are made for engaging in free speech that brings forth very positive, life affirming information.
    Orwell would be laughing out loud.

    This is unfortunate news Mr. Atzmon, sorry to hear about your predicament. If I recall correctly, you asked for some donations not too long ago, in light of your legal battles; if I had any money myself, I’d help you out, but unfortunately I don’t and I can’t. If I do manage to save some money up, I’ll send some your way.

    Sorry I can’t help out more. Good luck, and Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones.

    The expression of opinion is not a crime, it is a fundamental human right. The denial of freedom of expression is the road to totalitarianism.

  15. Badger says:

    Why have the Israelis/Israel supporters got it in for you? What have you been up to? It sounds very strange to me.

    Islington Council is Labour and the Labour Party is pretty antisemitic, with Corbyn as the raving slobbering jackbooted Jew hating Marxist MP for Islington who leads that benighted party. It doesn’t make sense. Don’t they know who they are talking to?

    Maybe you should deny the Holocaust, that should get you back into their good books.
