Gilad Atzmon: Goyim’s Organs Are Needed
Sunday, 08 August 2010 18:09
 by Gilad Atzmon

Gilad Atzmon (Hebrew: גלעד עצמון‎, born June 9, 1963) is a jazz musician, author and anti-Zionist activist who was born in Israel and currently lives in London.
"Anti-Semite is an empty signifier, no one actually can be an Anti-Semite and this includes me of course. In short, you are either a racist - which I am not - or have an ideological disagreement with Zionism... which I have."
He was born a secular Israeli Jew in Tel Aviv, and trained at the Rubin Academy of Music in Jerusalem. His service in the Israeli military convinced him Israel had become a militarized state controlled by religious extremists. In 1994, Atzmon emigrated from Israel to London, where he studied philosophy. Atzmon is an anti-Zionist who critiques Jewish identity issues and supports the Palestinian Right of Return as well as the establishment of a single state in Israel/Palestine. He is a signatory to the "Palestinians are the Priority Petition" which states “full and unconditional support of the Palestinian people is a condition sine qua non for activists to adopt.
Haaretz reported yesterday that an Israeli man was “arrested on Friday for allegedly running an organ trafficking network in the Ukraine”

According to the report, the network operated for over three years and recruited donors via the internet. Most of the donors were young women who agreed to sell a kidney for $10,000.

The organs were sold to Israelis for $200,000 and more.  Ukrainian police estimated that the network made a gross sum of $40 million.

This year we learned about some extensive Israeli organ harvesting and trafficking, a New York rabbis  running an organ trafficking network. This week we read about Israeli body organ dealers in Ukraine.

Someone should take the challenge and explain to us all why is it that ever so often we learn about Israelis and Rabbis buying and selling human organs.

Gilad Atzmon: Goyim’s Organs Are Needed ???
GILAD IS AN ASS
NOT FOR HIS CRITICISM OF RABBI'S ENGAGING IN
ORGAN SALES, THIS IS INDEED IMMORAL
AND THERE ARE SEVERAL ORTHODOX RABBI'S WHO
PUBLICLY ENCOURAGE ORGAN DONATION, {Noting its impt to ''save a life''}
a tenant of Judiasm,

GILAD IS AN ASS FOR HIS PROFILE
AND ABANDONMENT OF ISRAEL, WITH WORDS ANTI-ISRAELI
POSTS, AND POLITICAL ACTIVISM THAT ENDANGERS ISRAELI SECURITY

GILAD , ABOVE ALL DO NO HARM YOU STUPID SHIT!
IF ANYONE NEEDS ANY ORGANS, HARVEST THEM FROM THIS FUCKER!
HIS BRAIN IS ALMOST UNUSED DESPITE HIS ''PHYLOSOPHY''

MUST HAVE SMOKED TOO MUCH ''WEED'' IN THE JAZZ CLUBS, EH?

Israeli , I don't know what you want from Gilad, as he is a kind and human person, that brings big pride to Israel as a first class Israeli Musician.
All the blogs and Newspaper first raise up his origin, an Israeli.
Makes me feel proud, so he opens his mouth from time to time, so.............. but look at the bright side.
He is a warm Israeli, always writes about his Jewish heritage and even if he writes sometimes hard words, basicly, he never ever turns his face on Israel and his Jewish identity as many other do.
Show me one place where he did not declare first, I am an Israeli and Jewish.

I am sure one day he will be back and join his family and become a jewish scholar.
