    Tel Aviv University Cancels Wagner Concert After Angry Protests

    Tel Aviv University announced Monday that it would not permit a scheduled Wagner concert to take place on its campus, after it had evoked angry protests.

    In a letter to Attorney Yonathan Livni, who had submitted the request to hire the campus' Smolarz Auditorium for the event on June 18, the university denied the request, accusing him of deliberately concealing the intention to perform Richard Wagner's works. The university also claimed that Livni did not mention the name of the organization he represented.
    "This is emotional torture for Holocaust survivors and the wider public in the state of Israel," he wrote.

    So, they do not want a dose of Germanic culture?

    Probably because it would be extremely ironic for Israelis to perform music from an anti-Jewish composer

    Probably they just needed a large audience for whining?

    Staging a concert like that at Israel would cause protests. They that beforehand. But now they "sell" this news to the world, especially to Germany. What an obvious trick to make it to the news.

    BTW; did the survivers tell the rest of the world that the Nazis tortured them in the camps with music composed by Wagner?

    I've already reacted to this by burning my Amy Winehouse and Lady Gaga CDs and would urge all other Skadites to do the same!

    Wagner must have came back to life and played his music in Auschwitz to the deaths of Jews or something.

    Hitler liked a fair few things. Are they all banned in Israel? Is vegetarianism banned?

    Good for Wagner to not be besmirched by the audience of these "people" I'd say
    Ein Leben ist nichts, deine Sprosse sind alles
    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist
    und endet meine Frist, weiss ich dass du noch da bist
    Gefürchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit
