(SALEM) - Gilad Atzmon of Salem-News.com is on tour in the United States with a number of scheduled appearances.

Those who care about Palestine and Israel should view the event as a must attend.

Beyond his reporting and authorship, Gilad is one of the top saxophonists in the world today, his words and music are intoxicating, please attend whichever appearances you can.

Wikipedia writes, "Gilad Atzmon is an Israeli-born British jazz saxophonist, novelist, political activist and writer. Atzmon's album Exile was BBC jazz album of the year in 2003."

Last week we published the article, Gilad Atzmon: a Rare Appearance in Portland, which offers background and insight into who Gilad Atzmon is, and the message he conveys about religious identity politics.

Gilad confronts readers and critics with hard questions and truths about religious identity politics.

In a world where all people want dignity and fairness, Gilad calls people out for placing their religion and culture before the humanity of others.

There is so much more to say about Gilad Atzmon and this rare, awesome opportunity for people in Oregon and SW Washington.

Please donate when you are there, it isn't easy to trek the globe for the sake of saving humanity.
