Gilad Atzmon

Gilad Atzmon is an anti-racist,  Jewish Israeli jazz musician, composer, novelist, commentator and anti-Zionist activist. The moral power of his straightforward anti-racist position is reflected in the extraordinary hostility towards him from Zionists (see Wikipedia: ).
Gilad Atzmon on racism: “Following the growing outrage of some Zionists as well as crypto Zionists at my critical writings, I find it important to mention that in none of my political texts or interviews have I ever used any kind of racially orientated arguments. My criticism of Zionism and Jewish identity is merely ideological and philosophical.
For me racism is categorically wrong and it is that very realisation that made me into a devoted opponent of Israel and of Zionism.
Anyhow, in case you in find an idea or a thought in my writings that may contain a trace of racism please contact me immediately. I will then either clarify my position or amend my text.” [1].
