People like Nick Griffin and Gilad Atzmon have no place on our campuses. They may pose as champions of free speech, but their presence only serves to whip up hatred and divide student communities. - Dan Sheldon, Union of Jewish Students (UJS) Campaigns Director, U.K.
We feel that it is very irresponsible of the Friends of Palestine to invite this man to speak, and completely unacceptable that they did not respond to our objections. We have invited all members of the society to join us in our protest, as well as all rational students who oppose racism and hatred. We hope our protest will help prevent future events like this from being permitted at Exeter University. - Ben Salamon, President of Exeter J-Soc
Gilad Atzmonis an Israeli-born writer ( author of The Wandering Who ) and jazz musician who examines issues surrounding Jewish identity, the so-called "Jewish State of Israel", and Zionism. Recently, Atzmon was invited to speak at Exeter University in England where he was met by a group of Jewish students who protested against his speaking at the university. On his arrival, Atzmon asked to speak to the group of protesters. He began by asking if any of them had read his work. Amazingly, as the video below shows, not one of the university students engaged in the protest could say that they had read his books or essays. Why would Jewish university students protest against an Israeli author whose work they had not even read?
The anti-Atzmon protesters at Exeter University are not protesting against Gilad Atzmon because they know anything about his writings. The Jewish students are not even thinking for themselves. They are simply protesting because they belong to a Jewish student organization and were told to protest and given signs to hold. These students belong to a Jewish student cell, known as a J-Soc, which is part of the Union of Jewish Students (UJS)/Hillel, a subsidiary organization of the B'nai B'rith, the international order of Zionist Jewish Freemasons.
The UJS/Hillel is the organization behind the anti-Atzmon protest at Exeter...
It is important to understand that the B'nai B'rith, the real-life Elders of Zion, is the secret organization of Jewish Freemasons behind the student protests against Gilad Atzmon and other voices critical of Zionism and Israeli policy. The B'nai B'rith is the Zionist parent organization of Hillel on college campuses around the world. But it should be noted that the B'nai B'rith is a secret organization of Jewish Freemasons and certainly can not claim to represent all Jews or even all Zionists.
UJS Hillel works closely with the UK’s Union of Jewish Students (UJS), providing UJS both financial and administrative support. Together, UJS Hillel and UJS ensure that every Jewish student has access to a warm and welcoming space to explore their Jewish identity and programs to inspire meanginful Jewish experiences.
Gilad Atzmon, an Israeli intellectual who was born in Jerusalem and raised in the Jewish state, is clearly a voice that is not welcome in that "warm and welcoming space" that UJS Hillel seeks to provide every Jewish student exploring their Jewish identity in Britain. This is because Atzmon examines the racist and chauvinistic attitudes that Zionism is based on.
The Anti-Defamation League(ADL) is another important subsidiary of the B'nai B'rith. While Hillel focuses on promoting Israel and censoring anti-Zionist voices on college campuses, the ADL carries out the same agenda in the media and society. The ADL actually indoctrinates local police departments across America and uses defamation tactics to smear citizens who speak out against Israeli policies. I have been vilified and persecuted by such ADL tactics since 2001.
The parent organization behind Hillel and the ADL, the International Order of the B'nai B'rith, is a secret organization of Jewish Freemasons founded in New York City in 1843. This is the core group of powerful Zionists that operates behind the scenes for its own benefit. This is the hidden hand that ordered Jewish students to protest against Gilad Atzmon at Exeter. This is also the same powerful secret cabal that through its control of the media and politicians is demanding tougher sanctions and military action against Iran. In these heady times it is essential for Jews and non-Jews to perceive the hidden power that is beating the drums of war and which is behind the censoring of anti-Zionist voices at college campuses.
