Gilad Atzmon on U.S. Tour

Gilad Atz­mon, an anti-Semite whose record and activ­ity has pre­vi­ously been reported on this blog here and here, is cur­rently tour­ing the United States to pro­mote his new book, “The Wan­der­ing Who?” The book is an explo­ration of Jew­ish iden­tity pol­i­tics (a topic fre­quently used by Atz­mon to pro­mote his anti-Semitic views) and the “tribal” aspects of Jew­ish discourse.

Fol­low­ing his first tour-related appear­ance in the U.S., a visit to the Islamic Cul­tural Cen­ter in down­town Oak­land last Sat­ur­day, Atz­mon is sched­uled to stop in seven states and the Dis­trict of Colum­bia between now and March 16.Some of Atzmon’s appear­ances will take place on uni­ver­sity cam­puses, includ­ing the Uni­ver­sity of La Verne in Cal­i­for­nia, Uni­ver­sity of Col­orado, Boul­der (which is an Israeli Apartheid Weekevent) and the Uni­ver­sity of Wis­con­sin, Madi­son. A fourth cam­pus stop at North­east­ern Illi­nois Uni­ver­sity is being spon­sored by sev­eral uni­ver­sity departments.

In numer­ous posts on his Twit­ter feed crit­i­ciz­ing the Jew­ish com­mu­nity (and ADL) for label­ing him an anti-Semite, Atz­mon defends his posi­tions and notes that he is just opposed to “Jew­ish supremacy.”
