London Philharmonic Orchestra player suspended for anti-Israel outburstmain
Today’s Jewish Chronicle breaks the news that a player in the LPO has been suspenced by the orchestra after she launched a diatribe against three Israel Philharmonic musicians during a pre-Proms event last week.
The player has not been named, and I see no reason here to add to her punishment, already severe.
In the same issue of the JC, I amplify my own position on the single-issue sympathy tourists – Jews who, after one carefully guided visit to the West Bank adopt the view that Israel is the root of all evil. Read it here.
