In concert and talk.
A benefit for the Bay Area’s flotilla passengers who will be onboard The Audacity of Hope. You’ll meet them as they get ready to go on the “Freedom Flotilla – Stay Human” to break Israel’s illegal naval blockade, an awesomely courageous revolutionary liberatory, even world-history-making action.

Please join Gilad, his pianist Daniel Raynaud, and the passengers.

Gilad Atzmon is an unambiguous and explicit antisemite. These are the kinds of things that Atzmon likes to say:
“They try to call me an anti-Semite, I’m not an anti-Semite. I’ve got nothing against the Semite people, I don’t have anything against people – I’m anti-Jewish, not anti-Jews.
“I think Jewish ideology is driving our planet into a catastrophe and we must stop.”
“The Nazis were indeed . . . evil. They did things that were disastrously inhuman and unacceptable. But this doesn’t mean the Jewish ideology is correct, because in fact Jewish ideology and Nazi ideology were very similar.”
