Out of all the lies in the interview, this is one of the biggest doozies. Waters is constantly doing and saying antisemitic things; he even apologized for using an antisemitic trope a little over three months ago!

Naturally, this is the last thing I would ever want to do, particularly within a justice movement which I care about so passionately.
