British Theater Caves In to Anti-Zionist Pressure, "Muzzles" Israel Celebration

Forgive me for borrowing from the MuzzleWatch crowd's language for the headline. I wanted to see how it feels to use "caves," "Zionist," "pressure" and "muzzle" in the same sentence. (I admit, the bombastic self-righteous outrage feels kind of good!)

Anyhow, here's the story: Ynet reports today that

London's Bloomsbury Theatre decided Tuesday to cancel a planned Independence Day show organized by the Zionist Federation of Britain and Ireland.

The Bloomsbury was set to host a show celebrating Israel's 61st Independence Day, including a set preformed by a military choir, but announced it would be cancelling it as a result of appeals by various groups campaigning for the rights of Palestinians filed following the Israeli offensive in Gaza.

According to a report by the Guardian, the event has been moved to a new, undisclosed venue. "A number of groups had contacted the Bloomsbury to protest the show," said a theatre spokeswoman. "Obviously, we couldn't have them perform here."


And will MuzzleWatch protest this shameful censorship? Obviously not.
