Roger Waters Repeats One of His Most Pernicious Lies About Jewish Israelis
Antisemite Roger Waters recently spoke on an online program to support Israel-hating students at McGill University in Canada. The entire video is available here, and I will likely have more to post about it in future. But for now, I want to focus on one part: Waters explaining how in 2006, he performed at a peace farm called Neve Shalom, and was shocked at the reaction of the audience (which he claims was all Jewish and Israeli) to his call for them to make peace with the palestinian Arabs. He states this was a huge revelation for him, which helped him shape his views on the conflict.
As I have explained before, this is a huge lie. And I have the receipts in the form of audio from the concert, which I have juxtaposed with Water’s allegation for your convenience:
Waters continues to deny he is an antisemite. This pernicious lie about Jewish Israelis is yet another indication he is one of the worst of them.
