Roger Waters of Pink Floyd has a track-record of embarrassing himself when he makes posturing statements against Israel. He recently posted a short video, in which he attempts to speak about the boycott bill issue. It takes him to new depths.
Waters says the issue will ‘probably not be reported anywhere else in the world for various reasons’. He doesn’t explain what these reasons are, nor how these thousands of mainstream news stories about the issue from around the world have slipped through the net.
He describes BDS as ‘a loving political tool’. Well absolutely, what could be more loving than singling out Jewish businesses within the Jewish state, and trying to drive them out of business? That’s the very definition of love.
He quotes MK Zahava Gal-On, but refers to her as a ‘he’.
Attempting to declare his fulsome support to the campaign against the boycott bill, he says: ‘So I fully and entirely endorse…erm…what are they called?’
PS – To end on a happier note, check this video of Robbie Williams kissing and waving an Israeli flag at Wembley Stadium the other day. I’ve always adored Robbie and his music. Good on you, Rob!
