Proms: Palestinian Protest At Royal Albert Hall Forces BBC To Abandon Live Broadcast The BBC was forced to suspend a live Proms broadcast on Radio 3 on Thursday night when a performance by the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra was disrupted by protests.
By Andrew Hough, and Andy Bloxham 02 Sep 2011
Up to 30 pro-Palestinian demonstrators were ejected from the Royal Albert Hall after attempting to drown out the orchestra. They shouted anti-Israel statements throughout the concert, leading to clashes with members of the audience who wanted to hear the music. Witnesses reported seeing a fight break out.
Different groups of protesters stood up to chant at the start of each of the four pieces of the evening, meaning that fresh people had to be ejected each time. Radio 3 broadcast the first piece, which lasted about seven minutes, including the protests.
When the protesters started again at the start of the second, the broadcast was halted and a recording of a different orchestra playing the same music was played instead. RELATED ARTICLES BBC Proms radio broadcast pulled after Israel protest 01 Sep 2011 The BBC tried to resume the broadcast at the start of the second part of the concert - Prom 62 - but further protests led to it being abandoned. But audience members told The Daily Telegraph the protests did not deter the orchestra, which last played at the Proms in 2003. I t is thought it was the first time Radio 3 had been forced interrupt a broadcast of the summer-long festival of music because of protests. It remained unclear on Thursday night who organised the protest.

The religion of peace.
Folks over there take the Proms seriously, they
won’t take kindly to this.
Really? How were they different?
Try using the past tense.The barbarians have taken over.
The BBC will just blame the jews or Israel for it
People need to start beating the sh** out of the thugs who pull this crap.
I hate Pro-Palestinian Nazis.
Political Correctness has made ball-less wonders of so many...it is heartbreaking and maddening at the same time.
For the love of God, are there no people left that will stand up and say “ENOUGH already with your BULLSHIT”?????
They are cowed and dhimmified
I'm betting the protestors were non-Muslim leftist loons.
Now that’s a plan that will work. Indeed, the only plan that will work.
Sounds like a larger crowd of protesters came, knowing they would be kicked out, so they sent in a new squad for each segment of the performance. Or the whole group came, a new piece of it sacrificing itself for each new protest.
Britain will probably simply slap the offenders on the wrist.
They are chickenshit!!!
Lots of tolerance being displayed there. I wonder if Tony Blair’s SiL Lauren Booth was there with those boobs! She last made the news several days ago calling for the “Destruction of Israel - liberate Al Quds” there in London! We should have learned way back at the Munich 1968 Olympics, these people are not civilized and have no desire to be.
INvite a damned Rugby team to these events! I can gauran-damn-tee you, they will “settle the issue!”
I can imagine a scene like in slapstick cartoons, where unruly concertgoers get horns stuck over their heads, impaled in bass drums, run over by the grand piano, etc.
At least we don’t have to worry about having to
hear the Palestinian Philharmonic any time soon.
No arrests were made. That wouldn’t be politically correct.
