Being in Time: A Post-Political Manifesto, they have changed their tactics: they are now determined to obliterate my international jazz career.
Earlier today, a book shop in Oxford that regularly hosts my concerts posted the letter below to my Facebook page. The Oxford venue received the letter from the ultra-Zionist Campaign Against Antisemitsm (CAA). The CAA letter is blatantly and intentionally defamatory and duplicitous.
A number of the British promoters, venues and festivals who received a copy of this defamatory letter against me attempted to investigate the CAA’s accusations and have found the allegations to be baseless, delusional and duplicitous. By way of illustration, the band with which I am touring at the moment is led by a New York Jewish musician and the bass player is an ex-Israeli: not exactly a “neo-Nazi” quartet.
My best selling book, The Wandering Who? which has been translated into 14 languages and was endorsed by a huge list of academics and humanists worldwide, is denounced in the CAA’s letter as “probably the most anti-Semitic book published in this country in recent years”. But the CAA possesses the legal means to stop the distribution of “antisemitic literature”. In my case, they face a real problem: my writings may be controversial, but they are ethically driven, call for a humanist introspective examination, and are well within the boundaries of the law in every country, including Israel.
This is the only link the CAA provides to my work (here). Read my words and decide for yourself whether you agree or not.
I define Jewish power as the power to silence criticism of Jewish power. At the moment the CAA and other Jewish organisations are mounting a campaign to suppress any form of legitimate criticism of Israel, Zionism and Jewish political lobbying in the West. Perhaps inadvertently, the CAA has affirmed my definition of Jewish power. They are desperate to suppress any possible criticism related to Jewish politics and ideology. Roger Waters, Vicar Stephen Sizer, David Icke, Ken Livingstone and many others have been subjected to similar vile campaigns that are determined to eliminate basic freedom of speech in the UK.
I believe that the CAA and other Zionist organisations are determined to make Britain into their banana republic – a place deprived of freedom of expression, a country where dissenters are subjected to constant threats and harassment. I suppose I could go along with the CAA’s vision of Britain so long as the CAA and its Zionist allies can also improve the weather and make the price of tropical fruits drop significantly.
