I was invited to speak about my new book Being in Time - A Post Political Manifesto at Reading International Festival on October 22 2017. Zionist organisations were outraged. They mounted pressure on the venue and the council. They demanded the event cancelled. They mobilised a Rabbi to terrorise the resilient peace loving solidarity campaigners. Nothing worked. But one Labour Councillor was willing to do the Sabbos Goy job. Rachel Eden didn't bother to check who I am or what I stand for. She wants to be an MP, and she needs the paymasters at the LFI to approve her loyalty. I wish her luck,
On Fri 27 OCT - Sat 28 OCT Gilad Atzmon & The OHE
Will be presenting The Spirit of Trane and Bird with Strings (back to back) to celebrate two of the most important jazz musicians of all time – John Coltrane and Charlie Parker.
Tickets for the early shows are now running low, you better hurry up...
Yet again, I have managed to unite them all, the Zionists, the so called ‘anti,’ you name it. For the last few days the Berkshire Orthodox Chief Rabbi has been working hard to cancel my book launch at Reading International Festival. Next, Jonathan Arkush, the chairman of the BOD, a body that claims to ‘represent British Jews,’ who also hates my guts begged others to cancel my Reading talk.
Zionism promised to make the Jews people like all other people. It vowed to 'civilise' the Diaspora Jews by means of 'homecoming' making them productive and ethical, Watch this Israeli superb documentary film and judge for yourself whether Zionism has fulfilled its promise to the Jews
I learned from the Jewish Chronicle today that Berkshire Jews are “horrified” because yours truly has “challenged Holocaust denial legislation.” What caused the present outbreak of Pre Traumatic Stress? Apparently, my Sunday book launch at the Reading International Festival.
Duke Ellington's exquisite "In A Sentimental Mood," the first track on their memorable team-up album for Impulse! is here given a luscious treatment with the subtle addition of strings. "Invitation," the Coltrane version of which was found on Standard Coltrane a 1962 Prestige release but actually recorded in 1958. Like that version it's given a slow ballad treatment with Atzmon on sultry tenor augmented by the string quartet.
No one exemplifies the sickening attitude of the Jerusalemite better than Mondoweiss, a Jewish progressive outlet openly dedicated to the concealment of Jewish power and the political impact of Jewish culture. Mondweiss’ editorial staff seems utterly confused by Miko Peled’s momentary endorsement of universal freedom of speech.
It is clear that in the new narrative, citizenship is biologically and not geographically determined. It seems odd that so many in the West who claim to oppose racism, so easily accept a race-based system of ethnic cleansing.
Finally, the 2012 documentary Gilad and all that Jazz made it to youtube. You can now enjoy this great film by Golriz Kolahi. You can meet Gilad's bitterest adversaries and judge for yourself whether they have something to offer. You can listen to Gilad's music, meet the OHE, the Blockheads, Robert Wyatt, his family and obviously learn about Gilad's thoughts.

Being In Time: A Post-Political Manifesto' is Gilad Atzmon's latest pithy book - its title a nod to Heidegger, the John Coltrane of the philosophy world. It broadens the arguments of his previous 'The Wandering Who? A Study of Jewish Identity Politics' (which has sold internationally by the bucket load).
