Gilad is a great musician, but also an antisemite. I don't think "anti zionists"/boycotters are antisemites. Gilad is different. In his own (strange) way he is promoting Jew hatred. Anyone can google for his comments and see who are his fans. I can assure you that regular visitors to his website are also fans of the likes of David Duke, Israel Shamir... and other racists. He also have a huge following among Muslim antisemites. There's nothing "leftie" about him. Saying that, I'm glad Haaretz published this interview. I don't believe in silencing people and don't find it helpful to fight bigots. In his website he states that the "Israeli paper didn't censor me" which just shows you the delusional and paranoid world the guy is living in. As for the music, I'm a life long Wyatt fan, so I will buy the CD (like i'm doing with every wyatt release for the past 25 years) and wishes the "gentle soul" (Atzmon) a fruitful musical career, although I'm disgusted by the individual.
