Thousands Protest Klinghoffer Snuff Opera – Metropolitan Opera – Vids & pics

A PROTEST Rally was led by the Coalition Against Kinghoffer Opera outside the Metropolitan Opera

Opening Night of the Metropolitan Season. September 22, 2014 – NYC –

The Metropolitan’s Season will  include this Anti-American, Anti-Jewish, Anti-Israel, Pro-Terrorist SNUFF Opera, ” The MURDER of Leon Klinghoffer”

548More appropriate title should be. ” The MURDER of Leon Klinghoffer“…  Leon Klinghoffer didn’t just die… SHAME ON PETER GELB

Thousands came out to protest the Snuff opera. They gathered on both sides of the Avenue and managed to have a presence on the Plaza as well.

Even though  attempts were made to confine the massive gathering to one location across from the opera…the protest peacefully but with determination spread out ( before, during AND AFTER)

The Official Protest ended at 6 PM. but many stayed on with signs and flyers to greet those attending the Opening Night of the opera season.

Demanding this Snuff Opera be removed from the season.

Important questions were asked of the media as well, “WHO is FUNDING this Terrorist Opera?”

Wrapping up with a few more observations on the protest.

First from Lori Lowenthal Marcus at the Jewish Press here

And finally, from writer, Jack Kemp:

“One of the lines in this anti-semitic opera is: “wherever poor people are gathered they can find Jews getting fat. America is one big Jew.”  So who is this “exploiter Jew,” the one that Peter Gelb, the director of the Metropolitan Opera and himself a Jew whose father was a New York Times Managing Editor, allows to be denigrated on his stage?
.
Leon Klinghoffer was born a poor Jew from the Lower East Side, a man who invented an electric mini-grill you could also wash in your sink, an early predecessor of the current George Forman Grill. I recall one of these mini-grills in my home as a child in the 1950s. From this, Mr. Klinghoffer was able to create jobs for a number of people in manufacturing and sales and to support his family.
.
Marty Peretz, writing in the New York Observer,  states that:
“John Adams can work his clunky, chunky music to his heart’s content. And so I suppose can Alice Goodman work her poetry. Ms. Goodman was born a Jew. She is now an Anglican priest, serving the Church of England, first as chaplain at Trinity College, Cambridge, latterly at a group of parishes near the university. The truth is that it is not Mr. Adams’ music that is at the core of the controversy. It is Ms. Goodman’s words. She is no free spirit in this church, which has been fighting with the Jewish nation and the British Jewish community for decades. ”
This so-called opera is actually a sophisticated attack by wealthy, cosmopolitan Jews on a self-made New York Jew with limited education who had the audacity to make something of his life.” [End Jack Kemp]
.
Never Again Means  NEVER AGAIN!

Join the Coalition on October 20. Opening night of the actual opera: “The Death MURDER of Leon Klinghoffer”

  2. Great article exposing this disgrace. Good on the protestors. Thing is how symbolic it is, of so much in comtemporary anti-Semitism and the role of so-called Jews in formenting it all. Amy Goodman, the ex-Jew who converted to the Anglican faith, with that Church’s long history of Jew-hatred. She was even at Trinity College at Cambridge, Cambridge where upper crust Jew-baiting has never been out of fashion. And then there is Gelb, so appropriate that his father was senior editor at the anti-Semitic – that is anti-Israel – NY Times.

    Yes just where is the funding for this opera coming from, that is the question.

  3. Peter Gelb, Alice Goodman and their cohorts should hang their heads in shame! They really are a huge waste of space.
