By Gilad Atzmon
Alan Dershowitz, used to be my arch detractor. He chased, harassed and intimidated professors who endorsed my work. He campaigned against venues that hosted my music. Not that long ago Dershowitz saw me as Israel’s most dangerous enemy. He even, at one stage, complained about my "obscure" sax playing.
He did it all in vain. Dershowitz has been bitterly defeated on each and every battle he picked against me. Not a single scholar surrendered to his pressure, not even one withdrew his or her endorsement of my work. They practically just laughed to his face. Not a single institution bowed to his pressure either as he himself admits. Dershowitz has now learned the lesson. The ethnic cleanser enthusiast has raised a white flag.
Simon Hardy Butler, a NYC morbid character who writes for the Times of Israel (when he isn't making ‘culinary videos’ that no one watches except his mother) was stupid enough to report this week that Dershowitz ran away when he was asked to interfere against my appearance at Theater 80 on Sunday 30 April.
“What do you suggest I do” was Dershowitz’ answer to the Zionist call for action against the“notorious anti-Semite Gilad Atzmon.”
Simon Butler, himself a dubious pathological case, wasn’t impressed. He suggested to Dershowitz to write an editorial in a major New York publication, such as the New York Daily News. “He has done this sort of thing before. Why not do it again …” But Dershowitz declined. Unfortunately, he had enough.
The truth of the matter is that Dershowitz was an elementary part of my marketing strategy. We worked very well together. He was my favourite enemy. The man is known to be a compulsive liar and easy to rebut. His constant frenzy is amusing on the verge of proper entertainment. Out of the Jewish media ghetto Dershowitz is largely perceived as a clown. The ardent Zionist has managed to sell thousands of copies of The Wandering Who? The more he engaged in my destruction the more he made himself into the archetypical ‘wandering who’. Dershowitz was my best publicity asset. He will be missed. I actually lament his defeat.
