Prevent The Met From Airing An Anti-Semitic Opera!

Prevent The Met From Airing An Anti-Semitic Opera!

Dear Friend,

The Metropolitan Opera Company, the world's largest, is planning to air a performance of "The Death of Klinghoffer" this September.

This overtly anti-Semitic rendition actually justifies the Palestinian terrorism that led to the death of a 69 year-old wheelchair bound man pushed off the deck into the sea.

The lead character says: "Whenever poor men are gathered, they can find Jews getting fat.  You know how to cheat the simple, exploit the virgin, pollute where you have exploited, defame those you cheated, and break your own laws with idolatry."

He says "America is one big Jew."

Please sign this petition to your legislators urging that the Met not air this opera.  The Met depends on public funding.

And, please send a personal email, in your own words to Peter Gelb, Met Opera President, at pgelb@metopera.com.

Your signature will count!  We will send an email in your name to your Senators and Congressman telling him or her of your position!

Please get your friends and family to sign this petition too.

We'll add your email address to our Alerts list to keep you posted on progress and let you know if we need to take further action.

Thank you,

Dick Morris

The Met should be ashamed of itself. Would they dare to do Muslims bashing? History did not teach people anything. Does Met want to see new Holocaust?

In America we have a right to be fools, hateful, ignorant and anti-Semitic. But we also have the freedom to responsibly not participate in hate and ignorance of any sort. Good taste and common sense would dictate that good people play no role in hate, no matter what cloak of sophistication and pseudo-cutting edge "theater" it may be billed as. May God protect us all from artists who abuse their freedom. Theatrical, artistic and academic people were attracted to Hitler and the communists. It seems they have not learned their lesson.

Shocking. This is not art or freedom of expression. It is inflammatory and hate inspired.

Take the death of a jew by a terrorist and make it into an opera is a shame on people like you who think they are being liberal on others feelings and backs.
