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

This country is out of control and something needs to be done to stop it. What an idiotic statement to make, I have Jewish friends that work just as hard as I do and struggle like every other American. I'll tell you what if our country continues supporting Terrorist and not putting our foot down I'm out of here. I am 100% American but I am so disappointed and disgusted with what is happening in this country.

In the name of peace, freedom and all mankind, this show not only needs to be removed from the line up, but discussed how this affects and will affect anti-semetic and racist views.

This opera egregiously equates the "moral equivalence" of terrorists attacking an innocent, disable 70+ year old to a nation state trying to protect its citizens and borders.

I am a Christian who loves the Jewish community and herigage. It is heartbreaking to see the increasing hostility against Jews and Christians. I pray that we will be able to stand together to fight this.
