Scum disrupt concert at Royal Albert Hall

Israel Radio reports that the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra had to stop its concert twice on Thursday evening due to disruptions by 'Palestinian'-supporting scum (the word used by a friend in London in an email to describe them). The BBC took the concert off the air. Police removed the disrupting persons from the concert hall.

London's Daily Telegraph adds:
A BBC spokeswoman confirmed the live broadcast had been taken off air on Radio 3 "as a result of sustained audience disruption".

The BBC Proms team earlier posted on Twitter, the microblogging site: ''We're sorry that the concert was taken off air following hall disturbance.

"Glad both pieces were heard by the audience in the RAH.''

Some audience members tweeted that the protesters were shouted at to stop.


A BBC spokeswoman said: "We regret that as a result of sustained audience disruption within the concert hall which affected the ability to hear the music, tonight’s Israel Philharmonic Orchestra Prom was taken off air.

"The invitation to the Orchestra was a purely musical one, offering the opportunity to hear this fine Orchestra in conductor Zubin Metha’s 75th year, so we are disappointed that BBC Radio 3 audiences were not able to enjoy the full performance. BBC Radio 3 broadcast recordings of the same music, however the performance continued in the hall.

"We will broadcast part of the concert next Wednesday 7 September at 2.30pm."

The Brits need to enforce their laws. Arrest these thugs on the spot and detain them in jail so that they can't PREVENT scheduled events.

Who on earth will want to plan a trip to London to see the sights and enjoy symphonies, etc. if the U.K. govt is going to allow mayhem. What a waste of time and travel budget that would be! And you just know that it's not long until people get hurt in these things.

So, in summary, we'll all just have to travel to Tel Aviv and the rest of Israel, which are apparently the only places in that whole part of the globe where you can forget your troubles and enjoy a symphony in peace...

BTW, BBC will rebroadcast "part of the concert"... they will cut out of the audio the part (the thugs) that does not fit their narrative of victimhood and pity. Surely that's why the cut away from the action during the original broadcast - outright thuggery makes their team look bad. What a lowlife operation.

BBC itself bears large part of the responsibility for having created and maintained the atmosphere of anti-Israel hysteria in the UK.

Enjoy a concert in peace? Not if you are Daniel Baremboim conducting Wagner in Tel Aviv. Typically defensive Israeli comment. Reminds me of living in South Africa during Apartheid when the ruling Afrikaners took the same blinkered aggressive position and never understood boycotts and protests either.

Well, William, if you don't like classical, you'll like this guy Mosh Ben Ari. I got to see him live once and just recently realized that he has concerts all over. He's really good. On iTunes he has a live album that is fabulous. My favorite of the live ones is Derech. And he is literally in the process of rolling out a new album called (in English) Look Into my Eyes. I don't see it on iTunes yet.

BTW, you have no idea what a compliment you've paid saying that I posted a "Typically defensive Israeli comment." Did you hear that, Shy Guy?

I head you, Sunlight, but I don't know what it has to do with me.

Saw the BBC news report about this earlier today and they did their best to make the anti-Israel scum look like reasonable people with a legitimate grievance, as opposed to the obsessive Jew-haters that they are.

I can confirm that the people who disrupted the concert inside were boo'd by the rest of the audience and slow-clapped on their way out.
