Pall Oskar, a popular pop singer in Iceland, compared Jews to the Nazis.

At Spain’s national Goya Awards, the filmaker of “Gaza”, which won best short documentary, Julio Perez del Campo, dedicated it to “those taken by Zionist terrorism” and called for resistance against “Israeli apartheid”.

France’s Eurovision Song Contest hopeful, Bilal Hassani, accused Israel of a “crime against humanity”(he later denied being hostile to Israel). 


Julie Burchill last week asked the right question: Why do liberal luvvies hate Israel so much? 
In the UK, a group of artists - Roger Waters, Peter Gabriel, Vivienne Westwood, Mike Leigh and others - appealed to the BBC to boycott the Eurovision 2019 because it is to be held in Tel Aviv.

And I mentioned only the cases which came out during the last week. These confirm the presence in the West of a new kind of virulent anti-Zionist: smiling, wealthy, humanitarian, thirdworldist and leftist entertainers. 

Writing in the Daily Telegraph, Julie Burchill last week asked the right question: Why do liberal luvvies hate Israel so much? “Maybe because Israel is so small its opponents have some weird notion that it can be easily broken, which would also explain how they seem less inclined to go after the massive monoliths of China, Russia and the Muslim Middle East and their vast abuses of human rights, in typical coward-bully fashion”, Burchill wrote.

A new anti-Jewish poison circulates in the wealthy and chattering European classes. In Cannes, the famous Danish director Lars von Trier called Israel "a finger in the ...”.

Thus, in the heart of civilized Europe, with the complacency and collaboration of eminent cultural, artistic and intellectual personalities - Burchill’s “clapped-out Equity branch of the Israel-hating hordes” - the exclusion of the Jews is being openly praised.
