Sad to say, but Atzmon has now written to Indymedia UK saying he doesn’t want any of his stuff up there anymore! It appears we are of one mind, albeit for different reasons. Below is what our old holocaust denial friend had to say.
If one reads between the lines what he is trying to say, in his normal convoluted way, is that since IM UK hasn’t been able to give him a clean bill of health, because there is no single voice or hierarchy, he has become fed up and is therefore going to throw his toys out of the pram.
IM UK should seize the opportunity to get rid of his anti-Semitic nonsense from their wires.
It would seem that with the collapse of the ‘petition’ supposedly written by and for Palestinians but in actual fact run by Mary Rizzo and Atzmon (who did all the deletions of embarrassing signatories like The Radical Press) coupled with their setback on the Cork PSC website and the removal of any traces of Atzmon from British trade union web sites, that Atzmon is sulking in his tent!

Dear IM UK Moderators.
I welcome your decision not to surrender to the endless pressure of Mr Greenstein and his ilk. However, for the last 3 months I have been following your editorial conducts and your decision-making procedures. I am now convinced that I cannot allow you to circulate any of my writings. I do believe in hierarchic editorial clear cut decisions and as sad as it may be, i do not approve any form of ideological collectivism. I believe in freedom of the spirit and freedom of speech. Thus, I would ask you to remove all my writings on your site within 48 hours and to make sure that you never publish any of my thoughts or writings without my consent. All the Best Gilad Atzmon
