Roger Waters of Pink Floyd thinks Jews have too much power in America. If you are still a Pink Floyd fan–even after his anti-Israel activism and pro-Palestinian, pro-Islamic terrorism diatribes, as detailed on this site–then his new bigotry, not just against Israel, but specifically against Jews, might not bother you since we know that most Israel-haters are really just Jew-haters with a more “high-brow” pretense. Likewise, it’s no surprise that this aging friend of the jihad is now an admitted Jew-hater.
Jew-hater Roger Waters @ the Fence that Keeps (Some) Islamic Terrorists Out of Israel
Sohrab Ahmari, an Iranian-American, pro-Israel, conservative assistant editor for the Wall Street Journal (he does excellent work, except for his support of the Arab Spring BS) attended a mock trial against Israel (the “Russell Tribunal on Palestine”–the first Russell Tribunal was an anti-American tirade on the Vietnam War) put on by a motley gang of irrelevant, far left whack jobs, including Waters, Alice Walker (whose anti-Israel, pro-Muslim crap I’ve detailed on this site), crazy Cynthia McKinney a/k/a Jihad Cindy (more about her here), nutjob Noam Chomsky, and murderous Marxist Angela Davis. Ahmari attended the event and wrote about it in yesterday’s Journal in an excellent op-ed piece. Here are a few excerpts, including the anti-Semitic “gem” from Waters:
Mr. Waters of Pink Floyd fame spoke up. “Sitting here as we are New York City,” he said, “it’s hard to ignore the elephant in the room—this elephant being the unfathomable influence in the corridors of power of the Israeli and Jewish lobbies.”
Catching up with Mr. Waters later, I asked why the tribunal wasn’t hearing an Israeli perspective. “That’s not what it’s for,” he said. . . .
I asked Mr. Waters if he thought perhaps there ought to be a Russell Tribunal on Syria to hold the Assad regime to account for killing some 30,000 Syrian citizens? “I’m not part of the hierarchy of the Russell Tribunal,” Mr. Waters said, sounding annoyed at the question. “I’ve been invited to take part in the Russell Tribunal on Palestine as a juror, so there’s no way I can answer that question because I just do not know.”
If you buy a single download of a Pink Floyd song from iTunes, if you buy a Roger Waters concert ticket, if you spend a single penny on this aging cretin from the drug-induced ’70s, you are supporting his neo-Nazi bigotry against Jews in America. Hey, at least he’s honest about his hatred for Jews, since as we all know, the rest of those at this event and elsewhere in the anti-Israel crowd of thugs around the world are also vicious Jew-haters, but just won’t admit to it.
But, wait, there’s more psychobabble, this time from Angela Davis, whom Ahmari also interviewed.
I then asked Ms. Davis whether she opposes specific Israeli policies or, like many other attendees at the tribunal, is against the existence of the Jewish state. “We are considering this new notion called sociocide,” she said. “It’s close to genocide. It’s the breaking down of a particular society. It may not be genocide in the sense that all the people are killed or the biological-reproductive capacity of the people is assaulted, but rather the structures of society are so dismantled that it is impossible for the Palestinians to continue to exist as a people.”
HUH? Translation, please.
By the way, the mock trial found Israel guilty of all kinds of crimes against the Palestinians. Are you surprised?
Contrary to his most famous hit, it looks like Roger Waters needs an education and some thought control after all. His views are nothing more than the insane rantings of an anti-Semite.
That Was Then . . .
This Is Now . . .
