During the next “The Wall Live” tour, Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters will target Israel’s West Bank security fence.
On Wednesday the Anti-Defamation League slammed Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters for using what the organization said was anti-Semitic imagery.
Waters will during performances of “Goodbye Blue Sky” on “The Wall Live” tour will target Israel’s West Bank security fence. He has for a long time been using imagery long associated with stereotypes about Jews and money, the ADL said. An animated scene projects images of planes dropping bombs in the shape of Jewish Stars of David followed by dollar signs, the organization said.
ADL National Director Abraham Foxman in a statement called the juxtaposition “outrageous.”
“While [Rogers] insists that his intent was to criticize Israel’s West Bank security fence, the use of such imagery in a concert setting seems to leave the message open to interpretation. But the meaning could easily be misunderstood as a comment about Jews and money,” Foxman said in the statement.
“We wish that Waters had chosen some other way to convey his political views without playing into and dredging up the worst age-old anti-Semitic stereotype about Jews and their supposed obsession with making money,” Foxman adde.

Pink Floyd’s attack on Israel is a complete falsehood.
The so-called wall is not a wall. 95 per cent of it is a security fence that was set up to stop Islamic suicide bombers to enter into Jewish dominant areas of Israel and kill innocent Jews.
The part of the security fence that is a wall, is set up around Jerusalem. Her there is a need for a wall, to stop sniper fire on cars and busses.
To reducible the state of Israel for setting up this security fence, is injustice. Because no person in the whole World was able to come up with a better idea of how to stop Islamic terrorists to create havoc inside Israel.
And the best part of it: The security fence brought an end to Islamic human suicide bombs exploding inside Israel.
I guess that is why Pink Floyd is so offended by this Israeli success. It exposed the evil motive of peoples heart.
