Gilad Atzmon writes the following on the Al Jazeera website:
"To regard Hitler as the ultimate evil is nothing but surrendering to the Zio-centric discourse. To regard Hitler as the wickedest man and the Third Reich as the embodiment of evilness is to let Israel off the hook. To compare Olmert to Hitler is to provide Israel and Olmert with a metaphorical moral shield. It maintains Hitler at the lead and allows Olmert to stay in the tail."
"It is about time to get out of the closet and to say it all loudly. Israel and Zionism endanger our world. It isnít just Lebanon, Palestine and the Arabs who suffer. It is now Britain and America that are dragged into an idiotic war. It is the entire West that is asked to rescue what the Israelis left out of Lebanon. We all have to de-Zionise ourselves before it is too late. We have to admit that Israel is the ultimate evil rather than Nazi Germany."

There is no doubt anymore. No ambiguity left. Gilad Atzmon is an anti-Jewish racist.
The Socialist Workers Party must now stop for good its flirtation with this antisemite - and it should admit that it made an extremely serious error when it gave him the benefit of the doubt.
Jazz fans now know what this man is and what he stands for.
Universities should no longer invite him onto our campuses.
Gilad Atzmon is a Racist
