    Some context and a source would be nice, rather than just posting an unsourced claim and expecting everyone to be appalled.

    Whether she had her arrangements "withdrawn" seems to be a matter of dispute, with her as the only source. She's clearly an absolute lunatic, so that's hardly reliable.

    What is certainly the case is that she's a horrendous human being. Look at this post on her blog, for example. She quotes an article saying "Jews invented, crammed down our throats" what it calls the "Holocaust Lie". Apparently Jews have invented a "Holocaust money-making machine" that has apparently brought them "tremendous advantages". Her entire blog is littered with this sort of thing.

    The backdrop is that several acts from Israel have been hounded out of the Edinburgh Festival in recent years by Palestinian flag-waving thugs, for the crime of coming from a country they hate. We're not even talking political comedians here, but dancers. There's a shameful element of this sort of antisemitism in central Scotland that's been quietly simmering away.
