UK’s so-called “Crown Corporation”, the British Broadcasting Corporation’s Jewish Governor, Baroness Ruth Deech, has called for an apology from internationally-famed violinist Nigel Kennedy for calling Israel “an apartheid state”. She said Kennedy’s remarks were “offensive and untrue”. She also claimed that there is no apartheid in Israel or the Israeli occupied PA territoris (Gaza, West Bank and East Jerusalem).
BBC has announced to censor Kennedy’s following statement in future broadcasting.
“It’s a bit facile to say it, but we all know from the experience of this night of music, that giving equality and getting rid of apartheid gives a beautiful chance for amazing things to happen.”
On August 8, 2013, 17 members of Palestine Youth Orchestra (PYO) performed at the ‘BBC Proms’ at the Albert Hall in collaboration with Nigel Kennedy. Watch the concert video below.
The PYO was founded in 2004 and is currently headed by former music director of English National Opera, Sian Edwards (born 1959).
Nigel Kennedy, who is a famous student of Yahudi Menuhin, performed at the Festival of Jewish Culture along with Europe’s top Jewish music band, the Kroke Band, early this year. At present, the Yahudi Menuhin School is being investigated for child abuse.
Jewish author, Ben White, in his book, Israeli Apartheid: A Beginner’s Guide, proves beyond any doubt that the Zionist entity is an apartheid state according to Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.
In April 2002, South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu accused the Zionist entity of practising apartheid in its policies towards the Palestinians. The Nobel peace laureate said he was “very deeply distressed” by a visit to the Holy Land, adding that “it reminded me so much of what happened to us black people in South Africa“.
In 2003, Ehud Olmert amitted apartheid being practiced in Israel, by saying: “More and more Palestinians are uninterested in a negotiated, two-state solution, because they want to change the essence of the conflict from an Algerian paradigm to a South African one. From a struggle against `occupation,’ in their parlance, to a struggle for one-man-one-vote. That is, of course, a much cleaner struggle, a much more popular struggle – and ultimately a much more powerful one.”
In December 2006, former US president Jimmy Carter was hounded by the Jewish Lobby for saying: “Israel’s apartheid policies are worse than South Africa,” reported by Haaretz on December 11, 2006.
