A concert by Israeli artists in Edinburgh met with a planned protest by Palestinian sympathizers, but I was gratified to read that they were essentially drowned out by cheers for the Israeli classical music quartet: http://thescotsman.scotsman.com/arts?articleid=4442409. That said, it is telling that alone in the world, Israeli artists are subject to this type of persecution. You don't see it directed at anyone from Sudan, or Russia, or China, or any other country in the world, for that matter. Nope, it's only Israel. So, the next time someone tells you that they're not anti-Semitic, just anti-Zionist. give that little fact a thought.
