I was approached by Atzmon via Face Book some time back. He had an agenda, to slander certain Palestinian BDS leaders for supposedly selling out the right of return in exchange for “shekles from Soros.” I asked him for proof. None has been forthcoming but abuse of the kind Jonathan describes, that he could serve up.
By the way, Atzmon is a blowhard ignoramus. Shakespeare’s Shylock was not a merchant. He was a banker who lent money to a Christian merchant.
His ignorance or dishonesty or both shows through in his praise for David Duke. Atzmon believes that Duke knows more about Jewish identity than even he, the erudite Gilad Atzmon does. This would lead to a conclusion that Atzmon is a Jew despite his claim of being not a Jew, but a Palestinian. Of course Atzmon plays off his Jewish name, his Israeli accent and his yiddischer punim. These give him credibility in some eyes when he goes after Jews as such.
If you’ve been taken in by Atzmon or by the David Duke charm offensive you should gather up your patience and give this link a read,not a cursory glance. It’s got screenshot to back up my words.
