The London Philharmonic Orchestra has suspended one of its violinists after she delivered an anti-Israel diatribe at a pre-Proms event. The incident happened at a Proms Plus Intro session at the Royal College of Music ahead of the BBC Proms concert by the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (IPO), which was repeatedly disrupted by pro-Palestinian demonstrators.

During the pre-concert event, members of the IPO were interviewed by the BBC. At the end of the session, according to the report, 'the woman said she was representing her LPO colleagues and launched into what was described by audience members as both a 'rant' and 'anti-Israel diatribe'.'
