NY Met Opera Spits on Jewish, American Terror Victim and Murders Him Again and Again

This "opera" is a disgusting spectacle, a vile piece of antisemitic spew couched in artistic licence.

Read this piece from Leon Klinghoffer's daughters. 

And people should stop even referring to "Klinghoffer".

He was a man, a father, a husband and a Jew, not some random last name without a soul. 

"On Oct. 8, 1985, our 69-year-old wheelchair-bound father, Leon Klinghoffer, was shot in the head by Palestinian hijackers on the Achille Lauro cruise ship. The terrorists brutally and unceremoniously threw his body and wheelchair overboard into the Mediterranean. His body washed up on the Syrian shore a few days later"

"We have always been strong supporters of the arts, and believe they can play an important role in examining and understanding significant world events. “Klinghoffer” does no such thing. It presents false moral equivalencies without context and offers no real insight into the historical reality and the senseless murder of an American Jew. The opera rationalizes, romanticizes and legitimizes the terrorist murder of our father."
