Gilad Atzmon

Atzmon is a Jewish (ex-Israeli) Jazz musician who unfortunately supports Israel Shamir and has distributed Paul Eisen's articles. He has spoken and played music at the SWP's annual Marxism event and in 2005 he was invited to promote his book, "My one and only love", at Bookmarks, the SWP's London bookshop: this event was picketed by Jews Against Zionism. While I have never suggested that Atzmon is a nazi, he clearly has very poor taste in friends and politics. What can one make of someone who calls himself a "proud self-hating Jew"? I found his "Protocols of the Elders Of London" highly offensive, not least because it slagged off some of my closest Jewish comrades while cosying up to the highly dubious Israel Shamir.
