By Floating a Pig Balloon Stamped With Star of David at His Concert, Roger Waters Has Moved to the Front of the Line of Anti-Semites – July 24, 2013

The Simon Wiesenthal Center is denouncing former Pink Floyd singer Roger Waters for his recent performance in Belgium that, according to an Israeli concertgoer’s account to YNET News, featured a giant pig balloon emblazoned with a Jewish Star of David floating above the audience. ….

“Waters has been a supporter of the anti-Israel BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) movement. Forget Israel/Palestine. Waters deployed a classic disgusting medieval anti-Semitic caricature widely used by both Nazi and Soviet propaganda to incite hatred against Jews,” charged Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, a leading Jewish Human Rights NGO that combats bigotry and anti-Semitism worldwide.

“We call on other figures in the entertainment community to condemn this grotesque display of Jew-hatred and await the condemnation from those BDS campaigners who claim their goal is to help bring peace and reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians,” Cooper concluded.

The Wiesenthal Center commends the Elder of Ziyon blog (www.elderofziyon.blogspot.com) for posting video from the concert.

“Anti-Semitic display at Roger Waters concert” – Ynetnews – Eldad Beck – Published: 07.24.13

Pig-shaped balloon with Star of David alongside fascist symbols released during British musician’s concert in Belgium. ‘I really love his music,’ says Israeli viewer, ‘but this time he crossed the line’

On Saturday night, Israelis were among those who attended a British musician and former Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters’ concert in Belgium. Even as Waters is a known activist pushing for the boycott of Israel, Israelis were still amazed to see that the show included a blatantly anti-Semitic display.
