As many of you know, Israel is under assault. However, the perpetrators are not only Hamas, Hezbollah and Iran, but rather artists and musicians who are engaged in a Boycott/Divestment/Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel. Popular musicians--including Elvis Costello, The Pixies, Carlos Santana, The Gorillaz and Roger Waters-- are refusing to perform in Israel, in order to punish the tiny Jewish state.
Former Pink Floyd front man Roger Waters has officially joined the the campaign of Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions against Israel, and is urging fellow artists to do the same. In a letter posted on the website of the Alternative information Center, Waters said he would continue to wage a boycott campaign against Israel until it ends its occupation of the West Bank and dismantles the security fence, grants full equality to Arab citizens of Israel and allows all Palestinian refugees to return to their homes in Israel.
The Anti-Defamation League slammed Pink Floyd's Roger Waters for using what the organization says is anti-Semitic imagery.
