“The Demonstrators Turned The Entire Audience Pro-Israel”

The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra was in London last night at Royal Albert Hall for the summer ‘Proms’ classical music festival–one stop on its 75th anniversary tour.

It turns out that Britain’s so-called ‘Palestine Solidarity Campaign’, which had urged music lovers to boycott the concert, had sent about twelve protestors inside the Hall before the concert began. As soon as the orchestra began playing Bruch’s violin concerto, the protestors stood and began heckling Zubin Mehta (the Philharmonic’s world-renowned conductor) and the orchestra members themselves, forcing the BBC to eventually suspend its radiocast of the event.

But within the auditorium, the protestors achieved exactly the opposite results they had hoped for. The orchestra kept playing, the crowd began vociferously booing them (the protestors), and eventually security personnel removed them from the Hall to the cheers of all.

A UK Minister who happened to be attending the concert tweeted:

“The demonstrators turned the entire audience pro-Israel.”

Experiences like these are being replicated throughout the world. Palestine Solidarity Committees and members of the Boycott, Divest, and Sanction (BDS) movement are alienating people everywhere.  Of course, they win a few converts here and there–but mostly among those who were already disposed to being anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli.

However, by dictatorially trying to tell people what they can listen to, what they can read, what clothes they can buy, what food they can eat, and what people they can socialize with, they succeed in rallying support for Israel.

Your humble servant would like to finish by retweeting:

“The demonstrators turned the entire audience pro-Israel.”
