Review of Gilad Atzmon and the Orient House Ensemble’s “The Whistle Blower”

by Trevor LaBonte, The Ugly Truth

Musician/author Gilad Atzmon and The Orient House Ensemble have returned with their eighth album to date, a delightful offering entitled “The Whistle Blower.”

ATZMON’S BACKGROUND:

Atzmon is a former Israeli, former Jew, who underwent a spiritual awakening as a result of hearing the great bebop masters. He was taught his whole life as an Israeli Jew that Jewish artists and thinkers are superior to all else, but he knew he had been lied to, by virtue of the fact that Charlie Parker and many other great jazz artists were black and not Jewish.

Atzmon cut all ties with the Jewish state over twenty years ago, expatriated to London and completed a Master’s degree in Philosophy there. His solidarity to the Palestinian cause is evidenced by his choice to name his band after the Palestine Liberation Organizations former headquarters in Jerusalem, called, “Orient House.”

His criticisms of his own former Jewish ideological collective are brutally honest and hard-hitting. Let it suffice to say that his mission to liberate the discourse has led him far, far from the world of “political correctness,” yet he somehow balances all this with a successful career in jazz.

Rise and Trevolt Entry 3: Redundancy and Oxymorons of World Jewry’s New World Order

Why don’t we have a Christian Voice For Peace, or a Muslim Voice for Peace? The terms are redundant because every true Christian or true Muslim is automatically not just a voice but a force for peace.

And no Christian or Muslim in his right mind would ever believe that Jesus – a man who opposed the the Zionists of his day – would have supported a genocidal, usurping Jewish state.

But the term “Jewish Voice for Peace” is the opposite of redundant. It is an oxymoron. Continue reading Rise and Trevolt Entry 3: Redundancy and Oxymorons of World Jewry’s New World Order

Rise and Trevolt Entry 2: Miko Peled and Robert Martin – two more discourse-policing gatekeepers of Zion

by Trevor LaBonte (Mouqawamah Music Exclusive)

RISE AND TREVOLT ENTRY 2

No need to mince words here: Robert Martin and Miko Peled are bonafide gatekeepers of the Palestine “Solidarity” Movement. They also display textbook gatekeeper behavior when they spread lies and hate about people who bring up issues which they deem irrelevant to what late Palestinian intellectual  Edward Said called the “Question of Palestine”. Really, 9/11 is not relevant to “Israel”? Because Israel COMMITTED 9/11. Really, the holohoax is not relevant? Because it is the premiere foundational myth of “Israel”. Really, Judaism is not relevant? Because all of the murderous Zionist entity’s laws and policies come straight from Judaism.
