Eagles of Death Metal Were Vocally Anti-BDS; Concert Hall Probably Targeted Due to Jewish Owners, Pro-Israel Stance


The Bataclan Theatre is an historic concert hall that is currently Jewish owned and has played host to a number of pro-Israel events (for more, see below).

The band playing at the time of the attack, the Eagles of Death Metal–an ironically named California garage rock duo that plays with a rotating cast of other musicians–had toured Israel many times and had become known for its opposition to the BDS (boycott, divestment, sanctions) movement. The bass player, Matt McJunkins sent this tweet from the Bataclan stage, shortly before the concert began:

    WOW! I can’t wait to see how this plays out in the arena of French public opinion.

    The media and political elites have everything under control. Were as in the US right now you have a healthy debate about whether to allow refugees in, here in Canada the elites tightly control the message. All media outlets and political parties are mouthing the same agenda on how we should bring the refugees in, and we have nothing to fear in “Happy Ways” Canada. The Sunday Star is in full mode promoting the invasion. Even though more news is coming out today that the attackers were part of an organized group bringing terrorists in by way of the refugee invasion. But what do facts matter to the liberal elites that control the country. It would appear someone hasn’t told the Star that the federal and provincial elections are over, as they have lots of rants about evil Harper and the conservatives.

      Here in the US “healthy debate” means the liberal propaganda machine has lost the ability to control the message. So figure at least 70% opposed.

        Its disgusting how the media and politicians label anyone who is worried about islam as far right. So in other words, if you are worried about the safety of your family, country, or self, you are some kind of Nazi. And don’t expect any sympathy from the large mainline liberal churches. One only has to check their websites every month to see they are only interested in global warming, whiny indians and homosexual sex.

        It is likely this horror show will generate a spike in Trump’s popularity.

    “The Bataclan theater, targeted in Friday night’s Paris terror attacks, was Jewish-owned for decades, but was sold two months ago, its former owners said.Pascal Laloux, one of the theater’s former owners, said Saturday that the theater was “sold in September after 40 years.”

    “We’re devastated because we knew everyone who worked there,” he told Israel’s Channel 2 news.

    His brother Joel, the co-owner, told Channel 2 that they sold the theater on September 11, and he recently immigrated to Israel.”
