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.

    I wish you all the best Gilad.

    The “campaign against antisemitism” is a campaign against free speech. This is true for virtually all Jewish campains against antisemitism.

    When was the last time that jews ever campaigned against anti-goyism? Well, it never happened, because hating goyim must be tolerated, whereas hating jews must be outlawed. This appears to be the prevailing view among jews.

    The British people will hopefully wake up to this fact.

    They can’t present their position because their position is that Jews are the Chosen and the evil world’s innocent victims and therefore the world must revolve around them forever.

    That position won’t fly with most of the world.

    Jews like those you are referencing avoid debate at all cost…the few times they are challenged on Israel or anything Jewish their only argument is ‘the holocaust’ and their ‘eternal persecution’ by inherently evil non Jews.

  3. This is very good news indeed.
    The truth will also prevail over falsehood!
    These bullies must be stopped.

  4. There was a fundamental question about the right to protest and of free opinion.

    1- I think that if someone is invited for an event and you have something against this person, you may write to the promoters of the event and tell your opinion.

    2- If there is a public discussion and you are allowed to attend it, you may tell your opinion even if others don’t like it and don’t feel confortable about it. This may happen in an university or in other places where ideas are discussed.

    3- You are allowed to protest in public against politics and politicians because politicians act in the name of the public, because they act publicly in ways that affect a large number of people.

    4- More controversially, you may protest against actions that affect a large number of people.

    But you are not allowed to harass private people doing their jobs even if you don’t like them. To picket some place is a way of intimidation of anyone aproaching this place and this is a case for the police.

  8. More good news for Fran.

    Not every politicians can be bought like a cheap prostitute, bribed, intimidated, bullied, smeared or Zionised thankfully.

    Two of Ireland’s largest political parties have committed to banning goods from Israel’s settlements in the occupied West Bank if they form a government.

    Fianna Fáil and Sinn Féin are tied in first place, according to the latest opinion poll conducted ahead of the 8 February general election.

    Both of their manifestos indicate that they wish to see the Occupied Territories Bill placed on the statute books. That legislation would prohibit imports from colonies built in contravention of international law – such as those Israel has constructed in the West Bank and Golan Heights.

    The Fianna Fáil manifesto says the party would “progress the Occupied Territories Bill” in government.

    Sinn Féin has made a more explicit promise to “ban goods from Israel’s illegal colonial settlements in Palestine from entering the Irish market by implementing the Occupied Territories Bill.”

    The legislation has already won support from a majority in the Oireachtas, Ireland’s parliament. Yet the outgoing minority government – which is led by the right-wing Fine Gael party – has invoked an arcane procedure to block the bill, claiming that it clashes with Ireland’s obligations as a European Union member.

    “Mood for change”
    Niall Collins, a former foreign affairs spokesperson for Fianna Fáil, emphasized that his party supports the Occupied Territories Bill.

    “We didn’t have to put it into our manifesto,” he told The Electronic Intifada. “But we insisted on doing so.”

    The “next step in the process,” Collins said, would be the bill’s inclusion in the legislative program that Fianna Fáil agrees with another party – or parties – when forming a coalition.

    “Personally, I am determined to see this through,” Collins said. “It has to be in the new program for government. There is a mood for change. There are lots of issues relating to health, housing and homelessness here in Ireland. But our position on Palestine has stood to us also and it is coming up on the doorsteps. People are showing a keen awareness of this issue.”

    Roger Waters and Pink Floyd are not charities nor is the BDS campaign. The CAA is a charity. Charities are supposed to be apolitical. Since it violated its tax status by being political, CAA should lose its status as a charity.

    To best of my memory from reading many of Gilad’s writings he has never expressed any ‘ hatred of Jews’. Nor has he ‘denied’ the holocaust’ ….as in Jews being rounded up and imprisoned……he has questioned aspects of the Jewish version of some events as have most objective historians and researchers.
    He has critiqued the holocaust ‘ culture’ but that does not rise to the level ‘anti semitism’.

    Applying double standards by requiring of it a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation.

    Singling out Israel for poor treatment of its citizens when compared to the rest of the countries in the ME would seem to fit that definition.

    YOUR FIRST LIE IN YOUR BOLLOCKS. I NEVER SAID THAT THE ROTHCHILDS OWNS THE WORLD THOUGH THERE IS PLENTY OF EVIDENCE TO BE SEEN ON THE SUBJECT.
    Number two the Rothchulds are no longer a Banking dynasty.

    In order to prove that the House of Rothschild was the hidden hand behind the founding of the Bank of International Settlements [BIS] in Basle, Switzerland – purportedly the central bank for the central banks, pictured above – the following facts need to be sustained with compelling evidence:

    1. The men who founded BIS were working for or with the House of Rothschild when they founded the bank.

    2. The governors of the central banks which became members of the BIS board of directors were working for or with the House of Rothschild in their financial policy-making.

    3. The House of Rothschild has benefited, whether directly or indirectly, from any aspect of the business conducted by BIS.

    https://www.thebernician.net/rothschild-the-hidden-sovereign-power-behind-bis/

    Rothschild-owned or controlled Central Banks
    Central banks are illegally created private banks that are owned by the Rothschild banking family.

    The family has been around for more than 230 years and has slithered its way into each country on this planet, threatened every world leader and their governments and cabinets with physical and economic death and destruction, and then emplaced their own people in these central banks to control and manage each country’s pocketbook.

    Worse, the Rothschilds also control the machinations of each government at the macro level, not concerning themselves with the daily vicissitudes of our individual personal lives. Except when we get too far out of line.

    My thoughts exactly…

    These Chains Will Be Broken: Palestinian Stories of Struggle and Defiance in Israeli Prisons.

    Hundreds of thousands of Palestinians have experienced life in Israel’s prisons since 1967, as did many more in previous decades during the course of the ongoing Israeli military occupation. Yet rarely has the story of their experiences in Israeli jails been told by the prisoners themselves. Typically the Western media portrays them as ‘terrorists’ while well-meaning third-party human rights advocates paint them as hapless victims. They are neither. This book permits the reader to access the reality of Palestinian imprisonment as told by Palestinian prisoners themselves — stories of appalling suffering and determination to reclaim their freedom. The stories in this book are not meant to serve as an account of Israeli torture methods. Instead, each story highlights a distinct experience — each so personal, so profound — in order to underline the humanity of those who are constantly dehumanized by Israeli hasbara and the mainstream corporate media’s biased accounts.. While highlighting Israel’s brutality, readers come to grips with the resilience and grit of Palestinians and their ability to rise above Israel’s cruelty and be emblems of power for their people. Palestinian prisoners are an essential element in the collective resistance against Israeli colonialism, apartheid and military occupation. Rather than being viewed as unfortunate victims, their steadfastness exemplifies the ongoing fight of the Palestinian people as a whole. Despite Palestinian factionalism and lack of a unified political movement, Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli prisons serve as one of the remaining platforms for unity. Regardless of affiliation, they are treated by their captors in the same debasing manner, often in total disregard for human rights conventions. These heroes of resistance, as viewed by Palestinians, often transcend factional divides. Despite numerous obstacles, they resist their jailers as a collective, enduring their pain and fostering their will together. In reality, all Palestinians living under Israeli occupation and siege are also prisoners. The Gaza Strip is often referred to as the “world’s largest open-air prison.” It is in this context that this book becomes an essential read.

    ‘Hundreds of thousands of Palestinians have experienced life in Israel’s prisons since 1967, as did many more in previous decades during the course of the ongoing Israeli military occupation. ‘

    I think another aspect of this is that no one ever seems to think what the impact has been and is going to be on Palestinian society of seventy years of dispossession, humiliation, harassment, and indeed, outright imprisonment.

    When the Palestinians finally do win their land back, all this collective history isn’t just going to go away. They’re going to be marked by it for generations.

I know this from personal experience, and I also know that Israel isn’t shy about sharing whatever information they take from it with the toughs at your local synagogue, your business adversaries, etc.
    Huawei phones are banned because unlike Google (who will share your info with anyone willing to pay for it) or Apple (who makes the same available to Jews only, and at no charge), they have no backdoor.

    Something else that can be attributed to Fran’s friends the Rothschilds

    The least known Jewish contribution to the Native American genocide is the deliberate starvation caused by the near-extinction of the American buffalo. Investment banks owned by the Jewish Rothschild crime family had invested heavily in the railway lines built across the country. By making the US government hire unemployed former black slaves as ‘Buffalo soldiers’ to slaughter herd after herd of buffaloes they killed two birds with one stone. They prevented those herds from damaging the tracks of the railway lines and they freed land for millions of new settlers by forcing the surviving Natives to surrender and accept imprisonment in concentration camp style reservations.

    Anti-Zionism today survives only in hard left and Muslim circles, it is very much a minority movement that has no mainstream support anywhere.

    US Harvard law students walk out en mass as Israeli ambassador begins to justify Jewish settlements. Israel may have occupied the United States White House and other seats of power in the world but it is hardly winning hearts and minds among ordinary people in the West.

    Watch the video below. It shows Harvard University law students walk out en mass as the Israeli ambassador begins to give a talk about the “legitimacy” of the Jewish settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories. https://www.redressonline.com/2020/02/watch-us-harvard-law-students-walk-out-en-mass-as-israeli-ambassador-begins-to-justify-jewish-settlements/

    Good read. Another one that takes Zionism both Christian and Jewish to task is Facing West: The Metaphysics of Indian-hating and Empire-building by Richard Drinnon.

    ‘Anti-Zionism is basically obsolete these days, even most on the nationalist right who would have traditionally been anti-Zionist have largely moved to a position of subtle pro-Zionism. On Unz and other right-leaning sites I see far more pro-Israel rhetoric than anti-Israel rhetoric…

    ? This is simply dishonest. I don’t know what to say. How can somebody so blandly say something that is so obviously not true?

    I mean, Fran agrees — but she’s an idiot. How about whoever typed this? How can they so calmly ignore the truth?

    You are correct. Anti Zionism has left the mainstream and belongs to lunatics like “BDS forever”. Heavy duty conspiracy nuts, who believe the Rothschilds killed the American buffalo. You cannot make this shit up. Totally unhinged.

    The Palestinian victim story hit it’s zenith a while back, and people have moved on. It the Palestinian heyday. Yasir Arafat bet with Bill Clinton more than any other leader. Islam will never support a Jewish state.

    The plight of the Palestinians is awful but it is mostly because of it’s leaders, who are as rich as the Rothschilds (lol) stealing billions from their population.
    The peace process is nothing more than a cottage industry. It is not just the dysfunction of the leadership. Like Fatah vs Hamas. It is the dishonestly and childishness of the Islamist no recognizing the Jewish holy sites, or the hegemony of other religions. They are irrational and childish and impossible to deal with when trying to reconcile conflict and problems. The world now understand there is nothing that will satisfy the Palestinians and the Islamist then the ethnic cleansing of the Jews from Israel, and it be replaced with an Islamic theocracy.

    Europe has also had a real backlash from Islamic immigration. Eastern Europe. Poland, Hungry, are much more interested and simpatico with the functioning of Israel with trade and economic interest than the irreconcilable dysfunction of the Islamic countries in the Middle East.

    Anti Zionism is a left wing fantasy meets Neo Nazis.

    “A Zionist Israeli conspiracy within the DNC is counting the votes and subverting the election.”

    Dear Gilad – have very much enjoyed your articles and your determination to stand your ground against the smear campaign that you have been subjected to over the years. Disappointed to hear that you decided to pull out of the 606 event and suspect that you have been at bit reticent in outlining the exact nature of the threats of the CAA against you and possibly others.

    Concessional tax status as a charity should be stripped from CAA if it can be established that it is engaging in threatening behaviour meant to intimidate and deny others their right to freedom of speech and to earn their living. It remains to be seen if the UK bureaucracy is up to the task.

    I have no problem with people picketing peacefully but not on the taxpayer dollar. Once it gets to the stage of harassment and possible violence , then its rightfully a matter for the police. But definitely its time for a bit of pushback against the hasbara mob.

    Clearly, Eliza is a rabid anti-semite. She probably has a poster of Hitler in her bedroom and treats The Protocols of the Elders of Zion as her bible.

    Ron…ban her!!!

    This below video should be forwarded to all Christian churches and organisations.

    One can only imagine the outrage that would be felt by congregations when discovering the truth and deception.

    Those Shabbos Goyim including John Haggee and the rest of those so called Christians who whored themselves out might not be sitting so pretty anymore.

    BDS, I’m totally behind you but one small correction please. There was no Turkey during the Irish famine, nor was the Sultan an ethnic turk. It was the multi-ethnic Ottomans that came to Ireland’s aid and thank God they did and shamed the world!!
