I happen to be a big Gil Scott Heron fan so when I heard that he was going to debut in Tel Aviv nothing could please me more than the knowledge that the godfather of hip-hop would be doing his thing in the Holy Land.
Not everyone however shares my joy.
In the Guardian’s coverage of Gil Scott Heron’s upcoming performance in the South Bank Centre in London, the accompanying thread was completely hijacked by anti-Jewish BDS supporters (some of whom included the likes of Theobald Jews such as Yael Oren Kahn (a/k/a No2Genocide) of the Islington Friends of Yibna and Ruth Tenne of Jews for Justice for Palestinians).
Below are a selection of undeleted comments from the thread each and every one of which is off topic.
Note the time stamp on these posts some of which are more than three days old.
So in case you’re wondering what the influence of that despicable Georgina Henry is going to be in her new position in the culture section of the Guardian – look no further than the above.
