Ronson Rips Roger

Sir Gerald Ronson – British business tycoon, philanthropist and proud Jew – has ripped Roger Waters for being antisemitic (hat tip: Ambrosine).

gerald ronsonThe hostilities between Roger Waters and the Jewish community has intensified with Sir Gerald Ronson accusing the co-founder of the rock band Pink Floyd of being anti-Semitic.

At a dinner of the Community Security Trust at the Grosvenor House Hotel attended by Ed Miliband, Dominic Grieve, Ed Balls and Ephraim Mirvis, the Chief Rabbi, Sir Gerald, the charity’s chairman, made withering reference to the rock star, pictured. “You may remember Roger Waters from the rock band Pink Floyd,” he said. “Nowadays, at his concerts, he has a giant inflatable pig with a huge Star of David scrawled across it.”

To scornful laughter from his audience, he added: “But, he insists that he is only anti-Israel, and is not, of course, anti-Semitic.” Sir Gerald was referring to an inflatable pig, stamped with the Star of David, that Waters, a vociferous champion of Palestine, floated during a concert in Brussels last year.

As loud as the protests about the stunt were, he later compared the Israeli government to the Nazis.

    If he weren’t such a Jew hater I might feel a bit sorry for Roger Waters. To be that old and so embittered – must really suck!

    ANTI ZIONISM IS ANTI SEMITISM

    Did you hear that, was it not loud enough? No? Ok let me repeat it , ANTI ZIONISM IS ANTI SEMITISM

    If you think otherwise you are either deluding YOURSELF or bare faced lying.

    Ask yourself this simple question: have YOU ever met an anti Zionist who is not an antisemite? If you think you have then think again, delve deeper – because beneath the skin of every anti Zionist is a Jewhater just waiting to surface.

    Anti Zionism is a code that dare not reveal its true nature. Think guilt ridden post colonial, post Christian middle class ‘intellectuals’ like Roger Waters, or Stephen Hawkins, ken Loach or Vanessa Redgrave, or organisations such as The Church of Scotland, Methodists, Quakers, The Trades Unions, The Co-op, and any number of ultra left wing Trotskyites from the SNP, the ‘Greens’, the Lib Dems or the Labour Party- gay and straight.

    What do they have in common?

    Well, they hate capitalism. ( yes despite many being multi millionaires lol) Tick. Jews are capitalists right? But they say nothing about British, American, German, Japanese, Russian, Christian, Hindu, Muslim, Atheist, Agnostic, Arab etc, capitalism. It’s only Jewish capitalism that exercises them.

    They hate colonisation. Tick. But only when Jews are deemed the colonisers. They say nothing about British, Turkish, Indonesian, Russian, Moroccan, Chinese, Indian/ Pakistani, Arab, Muslim etc colonialism.

    They hate inequality and lack of free speech;they say they support women, gay and religious rights. Tick. Funny that the ONLY country in the entire Middle East (made up of 23 Muslim-Arab countries, if you include Palestine) which offers genuine protection and equality under the Law, and free speech for all irrespective of gender, sexuality, religion or race IS ISRAEL; this in contrast to the multiple apartheid, racist, Christian and Jew hate, misogynistic, homophobic, grossly undemocratic Muslim and Arab states in the ME, North Africa, Asia etc.

    Clearly they single out the one Jewish state on the planet for their demonisation, boycotts, filthy lies, and slander reminiscent indeed of 1930s Germany. Clearly they are driven by anti Semitism, for which ‘anti Zionism’ is a mere cloak of deceit/’respectability’ lol. Time to call a spade a spade everyone: ANTI ZIONISM IS ANTI SEMITISM.
