By now, American people must be accustomed to the humiliating fact that their
foreign affairs are shaped by the Israeli lobby. Americans must have also
learned to cope with the idea that despite the poverty and deprivation in
Detroit, Newark, Baltimore and Oakland their government is sending billions of
dollars of military aid to the Jewish State. I guess the Americans must be
used to the fact that their presidential campaigns are now totally funded by
Jewish oligarchs such as Saban, Soros and Adelson. Whether America likes it or
not, it has been reduced into an Israeli colony.
Thus, the sickening idea that The Times Of Israel, an ultra right wing news
outlet, terrorizes a church or tells a NYC Jazz club who not to book shouldn't
be a big surprise.
Last week I was informed that a NYC Jazz club has been continuously and
relentlessly harassed by one Simon Hardy Butler, a matzo ball* looking guy who
voluntarily decided to take care of my music PR in the big apple.
''I'm writing this email to call attention to the fact that musician Gilad
Atzmon isa virulent anti-Semite'' Hardy Butler wrote to the Jazz club.
But Hardy Butler didn't provide a single evidence of me being an 'anti semite'.
Why should he? In the solipsistic Times of Israel's universe Goyim are there
to obey. Let me share the good news with you already, the 'Goyim' didn't
capitulate this time.
''I urge you to cancel his show. This individual should not be given any sort
of attention--let alone positive reinforcement for his musical endeavors,''
wrote Hardy Butler, whomI believe, never been in a jazz concert in his entire
My concert wasn't cancelled. If Hardy Butler had a few more gray cells in his
brain (instead of matzo flakes) he would notice that out of the 6 artists
listed on the night 3 were Jews and Ex-Israelis (not including myself of
course). Not only the night wasn't an 'anti Semitic' or a 'neo Nazi' gathering
(as he claimed), it was probably qualified for a pro-Palestinian BDS boycott.
When I started to search for some background on my new Hasbara stalker. I
gathered that the boy is probably an attention seeking mental case. Hardy
Butler is a failure online food critic with zero credentials to his name. In
his posts and letters to venues he admits being a Hasbara social media troll
who spends his time attempting to block anti Zionists, which suggests that you
want to trace his FB profile and block him. However, his Twitter page is the
closet thing I have ever seen to a cyber desert. Hardy Butler publishes tons
of tweets yet not one person interacts with the dumping boy, and I really mean
not one, not even his Jewish mother.
But then, to my great surprise, I found out that back in October Hardy Butler
pestered St. Peters Church, a Lutheran congregation in the center of
Manhattan. Again he demanded that they drop my name from their program. You
must admit that this Hasbara latke** activist has some balls (that aren't
As we all know, Martin Luther had a serious issue with Jews. He wrote The Jews
and Their Lies, an openly anti Jewish text. Yet, this fact didn't stop Simon
Hardy Butler calling the Lutheran Church and lie through his teeth. As if this
is not enough, Hardy Butler also lied about himself. He claimed to ''represent
Baruch College'' while also being ''Facebook employee.'' How do I know? A
person in The Church reported to me once he realised who Simon Hardy Butler
was and what he represented.
Let's get this straight, Simon Hardy Butler, an anonymous Zionist Jew, an
imposter with zero credentials, clout or record in anything attempted to
intimidate a Church. I guess that Hasbara confidence knows no limit. I wonder,
does this Hardy Butler or his bosses at The Times Of Israel believe that such
an approach is going to make Jews loved and respected. Is this how they plan
to combat anti-Semitism?
What Simon Hardy Butler doesn't know is that the Church took him seriously. It
decided to look into my work. But what they found there totally contradicted
what Hardy Butler told them about me. They discovered a straight forward call
for justice that is consistent with the Christian universal values. When the
story broke out earlier this week, the music programmer at the Church sent me
a message to call him once I land in NYC. He was embarrassed by his initial
own naiveté he wanted to put the record straight and expressed an apology for
the statement the church produced under immense Zionist pressure. I guess that
Hardy Butler may be upset to find out that my next appearance at the Church
will be announced soon.
Despite Hardy Simon's relentless efforts I obviously played at the Church in
October and will play there again. The concert was a great success, the hall
was full. After the concert many members of the audience came to talk to me.
Many of them identified themselves as Jews, they praised our music but some
also mentioned how much they appreciate my work in the course of justice.
I guess that Simon Hardy Butler and The Times Of Israel are going to stalk me
for a while. They are welcome. Foolishly, they managed to make a relatively
small Brooklyn jazz gig into a light news item. I, on my part, have always
argued that music, art and Jazz are the ultimate form a social commitment. How
strange it is to find out that it is the Times of Israel that helps me to get
this crucial message across.
When I entered the Brooklyn venue a few days ago I saw a man sitting alone
with his back to the wall. I recognized the face, it was Simon Hardy Butler.
being a man of peace, I wanted him to feel comfortable, I went over to him to
shake his hand. This is what humans do, I mean out of the ghetto. The boy
flipped out. As I was approaching him in a friendly manner, he ran away as if
I was trying to push him into the sea. In my writing I delve continuously on
Pre Traumatic Stress Syndrome. I am here to announce that our weekly Pre TSD
award goes to this miserable Hardy Butler.
I learned yesterday that before entering the venue, Hardy Butler was
questioned by a security guy and was stripped of his luggage. I guess that in
my gigs, Hasbara trolls are treated as ISIS terrorists.
Next week we will dig into Simon's self promotion video as a food aficionado.
