The UNQUENCHABLE anti-Semitism that spews from the mouth, pen and/or performances of Roger Waters is sometimes astounding.
Last month Waters performed in Belgium. During his concert he dazzled his audience dressed in a quasi Nazi uniform and adorned his stage with a giant, floating pig bearing the Star of David on it.
Sure Rog, you’re no anti-Semite!
Now the man has continued his Himmler-like mission against the Jewish Nation and the Jewish Nation State by calling on the Rock and Roll world to boycott Israel.
Mr. Waters has chosen to do this right after more than 700 people were killed by the Egyptian Army in one weekend. But Roger isn’t calling for a boycott of Egypt.
Nor is he calling for a boycott of Syria where the apartheid Alawite regime of Bashar Assad has been responsible for the death of over 100,000 Syrian citizens in two and a half years of civil war.
Mr. Waters is not calling for a boycott of the Hamas-led government of Gaza that preaches genocide by calling for the destruction of Israel, an 80 percent Jewish country!
Nor has Roger called to boycott Hamas for openly committing crimes against humanity by shooting rockets intentionally into Israeli civilian centers and by using its own Gazan population as human shields.
None of this bothers Roger Waters, cause the people committing these heinous crimes aren’t Jews or the Jewish Nation!
It is plain and simple: Roger Waters has an addiction; he is addicted to hating Israel. He is bent on causing the Jewish Nation and the Jewish Nation State harm through lies and innuendo of the worst kind.
Roger Waters is so fixated on trying to cause harm to Israel that he is willing to overlook facts that prove clearly Israel is a state that stands for liberty, freedom and democracy! He ignores the fact that Israel’s minorities (Israeli Arabs, Druze and Circassians) have greater freedoms than minorities in the United States or his own United Kingdom.
Waters overlooks the fact that Israeli Arabs can vote in all Israeli elections, are members of the Knesset, go to Israeli universities and are doctors, nurses and so on.
He forgets that the Druze of Israel, making up about 150,000 citizens are fervently pro-Israeli, serve in the Israel Defense Forces and have a very high representation in the Knesset. The Circassian Muslims also have the same love and dedication to Israel as the Druze.
Waters chooses to overlook Israel taking in wounded Syrian citizens daily and providing them emergency health care at the expense of Israeli citizens. These are citizens of an enemy country!
ROGER IGNORES THE FACT THAT THE ONLY SAFE PLACE FOR THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD TO PROTEST IN THE MIDDLE-EAST LAST WEEK WAS TEL-AVIV!
I ask the Rock and Roll world -- and the rest of the world for that matter -- to say ENOUGH to Roger Waters, Alice Walker, Stephen Hawkings and the rest of these so-called liberal intellectuals and celebrities committing the worst type of anti-Semitism for their own personal benefit!
Others should follow the example of super-model Bar Raphaeli who said to Roger, “Fine, make your boycott complete: stop using photographs of me in your concerts!”
You go, girl!
