Gilad Atzmon is an Israeli-born British jazz saxophonist, novelist, political activist and writer. Atzmon's album Exile was BBC jazz album of the year in 2003. Playing over 100 dates a year,[4] he has been called "surely the hardest-gigging man in British jazz." His albums, of which he has recorded nine to date, often explore the music of the Middle East and political themes. He has described himself as a "devoted political artist." He supports the Palestinian right of return and the one-state solution in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. His criticisms of Zionism, Jewish identity, and Judaism, as well as his controversial views on The Holocaust and Jewish history, have led to allegations of antisemitism from both Zionists and anti-Zionists. A profile in The Guardian in 2009 which described Atzmon as "one of London's finest saxophonists" stated: "It is Atzmon's blunt anti-Zionism rather than the music that has given him an international profile, particularly in the Arab world, where his essays are widely read." His new book The Wandering Who? is now available at Amazon.com

76 years ago, war, conflict, murder, death, and struggle were put forth by the United Nations on this day in 1947. A complete and utter failure, the world still suffers the consequences of that vote as more than 6 million Indigenous people in Palestine live in refugee camps, squalor, and suffer the indignities of being oppressed by another racist bigoted violent European colonizer.
