How to take a brilliant career and stain it forever.
Westerners who choose to enter into the field of politics surrounding the Arabs’ war against Israel, and side with the Arabs, have been bamboozled by the flood of propaganda against the Jewish state of Israel. They know nothing about international law, and believe without blinking of an eye every bleeding heart sob story about supposed Israeli discrimination against the Arab, in spite of all the evidence to the contrary.
Every noticeable human shared trait of inconsistency, imperfection and public failure, is magnified by a thousand, and shown as proof that Israel is an evil state, though no one can point to any other democratic state involved in similar circumstances that has provided a better record of observing human/civil rights during a time of war.
Roger Waters’ activism against the state of Israel is regrettable, instead of being a voice for co-existence and moderation, he champions the side that drags their ‘offenders’ through the streets leaving a bloody trail for all to follow, and who victimize their minorities into the silence of dhimmitude.
NOTE: Personally, I just wish that Waters would shut the hell up, and if that means no longer playing the music I’ve enjoyed over the years, so be it.

Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters calls on musicians to boycott Israel
Roger Waters, the former frontman of Pink Floyd, has called on fellow rock stars to boycott Israel in an open letter that has drawn accusations of hypocrisy from officials.
The letter – first posted on the Electronic Intifada, a pro-Palestinian website – says musicians must tackle Israel over what Mr Waters calls its “crimes” of “apartheid” and “ethnic cleansing” because of an alleged unwillingness of Western government and the UN Security Council to do so.
“I write to you now, my brothers and sisters in the family of Rock and Roll, to ask you to join with me, and thousands of other artists around the world, to declare a cultural boycott on Israel,” he wrote.
“Please join me and all our brothers and sisters in global civil society in proclaiming our rejection of apartheid in Israel and occupied Palestine, by pledging not to perform or exhibit in Israel or accept any award or funding from any institution linked to the government of Israel, until such time as Israel complies with international law and universal principles of human rights.”
This is the mindset that Water’s supports by default:
Mother steps on the neck of her son, just executed for supposedly ‘working with the Jews’.
The lynching of two IDF soldiers who strayed into Ramallah, arrested by Palestinian police who allowed them to be ripped to shreds and their entrails paraded through the street.
