Pink Floyd's Roger Waters is latest performer to attack Israel

He may claim he's attacking the government, but that's still a pretty weak cover for what is an assault on the Israeli public:
The 70-year-old musician faces accusations of antisemitism after he said Israel’s “oppression” of the Palestinian people was akin to the Holocaust.

Speaking last week to the online US magazine Counter Punch, Waters said: “The parallels with what went on in the 1930s in Germany are so crushingly obvious.

“There were many people that pretended that the oppression of the Jews was not going on. From 1933 until 1946. So this is not a new scenario. Except that this time it’s the Palestinian people being murdered.”

Waters, who supports a cultural boycott of Israel, described the country’s Rabbis as “bizarre” and said they treated Palestinians and other Middle Eastern Arabs as “sub-human”.

Religious leaders hit back at Waters for what they described as an “antisemitic diatribe”. In a New York Observer article entitled “The Anti-Semitic Stench of Pink Floyd”, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach said: “Mr Waters, the Nazis were a genocidal regime that murdered six million Jews. That you would have the audacity to compare Jews to monsters who murdered them shows you have no decency, you have no heart, you have no soul."
Nope. He's no different than a lot of people of his standing in Britain. And what rabbis is he talking about anyway? My guess is he doesn't think anti-Zionist rabbis of Haredi background like Neturei Karta are bizarre, and only those with more open, favorable views on other races are.

Dr. Reuven Berko describes Waters perfectly:
Waters is unfazed by the horrors of the world: Millions of Syrian refugees are fleeing President Bashar Assad's forces, thousands of people are butchered in Iraq, Afghanistan and Yemen and millions of Africans die a myriad of strange deaths and drown by the dozens en route to Europe's shores, while others are shot to death as they infiltrate the borders of social welfare states. But Waters is obsessed with only one thing -- the Israel-Jewish "apartheid."

It seems that Waters and his ilk are driven by a secret desire to see the Jews placed within the confinements of "The Wall" -- but not the imaginary one that sprang to the feverish mind of a band whose psychological disorders were the soundtrack of our youth, but the one of the ghetto. This humanitarian used the image of a black pig with a red Star of David painted on it as part of his 2013 summer tour of Europe.

Waters and his ilk are unwilling to hear how the security fence saves Israeli lives from Palestinian terror, which is why it is imperative that Israel retains control of the Jordan Valley.

Those who hate us refuse to understand that Israel is the best possible example of a people united, regardless of the color of their skin, and that nothing can be further from us than apartheid.

For many, like this despicable man, the Palestinians and their claims are the hatchet with which they can realize their burning hatred for the Jews. None of them can be accused of loving the Palestinians, of course -- they just hate us more.
That sums it up well. And Pink Floyd's music was the equivalent of a Volkswagen; no need to spend money on their lumpy albums.
