Almost two years ago I posted the following:
Roger Waters has made it crystal clear he hates Israel and will try to persuade all acts to boycott us. Needless the say, the chance of a Pink Floyd concert here is not very likely.
But not to worry Israeli Pink Floyd fans! It seems like a loophole has been found – the UK Pink Floyd Experience tribute band!
They ended up playing here in 2017, with no reaction from Herr Waters.
Fast forward almost two years, and the UK Pink Floyd Experience planned on returning to Israel in January 2019. But this time, Waters reacted:
All of it is a lie, of course, but note this part in particular
The people you intend to entertain are executing their neighbor’s children, shooting them down in cold blood every day.
He is accusing all Israelis of being bloodthirsty murderers. Blood libel, much?
And unfortunately, Waters post worked. Well, more specifically, the unprecedented levels of harassment experienced by the UK Pink Floyd Experience at the hands of Waters’ minions.
A post in the Facebook account of the band says that all performances in Israel are canceled.
The reason for the cancellation is the pressure exerted by Roger Waters, the leader of the original Pink Floyd band…
“Roger Waters, has embarked on an unprecedented campaign to prevent the Pink Floyd UK Experience from reaching Israel, and unfortunately we can not stop the erosion that reached its peak with the publicizing of the phone numbers of the band members who were forced to disconnect their devices.The situation became so extreme that the band even took down its Facebook page.”
It looks like the bullies – led by Jew hater Roger Waters – have won this time.
