The malicious campaign run by the coalition of leftist academics, internationalists and Islamists against Israel continues unabated.
We know that in the U.S. and elsewhere, speeches by current or former Israeli officials are disrupted, and there have been organized boycotts of Israeli academics.
Now they even are going after musicians:
A lunchtime concert in central London by a renowned classical quartet became a platform for protests against Israel in the latest manifestation of how culture has become enmeshed in the bitter politics of the Middle East.
Within the first 10 minutes of the performance by the Jerusalem Quartet at the Wigmore Hall a woman stood up to “sing out” her condemnation of Israeli policy, setting the pattern for interruptions by people strategically positioned among the audience.
The result was that BBC Radio 3’s live recording of the concert had to be broken off under extraordinary scenes with the musicians engaged in a debate on stage with the protesters over the conduct of Israel in the Occupied Territories.
Only Israelis are singled out for such treatment base on nationality and religion, and there is a direct connection to anti-Semitic violence throughout Europe.
Unlike the fictional wave of right wing violence in this country, there is a real wave of anti-Semitic violence sweeping Europe.
