Roger Waters to Israel: Tear Down the Wall

Does Israel's Apartheid Wall keep out Palestinians or keep in the festering hatred, paranoia and madness of Israeli's?

Roger Waters to Israel: Tear Down the Wall

Scott Thill June 2, 2009

Thirty years ago, Pink Floyd released The Wall, a sprawling concept album about war, artistry and alienation mostly written by the band’s co-founder and bass player, Roger Waters. Hours ago in a Palestinian refugee camp, the 65-year-old Waters promised to hold a concert on the spot if a West Bank barrier erected by Israel was, like its musical counterpart, torn down.

In an interview with the Associated Press, Waters claimed that Israel’s wall was an “awful thing” amounting to a land grab and openly hoped that “it was destroyed soon.” The day before, Waters told an auditorium full of film students and journalists at the Sam Spiegel Film School in Jerusalem that the West Bank checkpoint he passed through to visit Jenin was “an obscenity for other people in the world.”

Waters has had success in the past tearing down geopolitical enclosures like the West Bank barrier. In July 1990, he launched a performance of The Wall at Potsdamer Platz to commemorate the fall of the Berlin Wall.

  2. Israel is NO Friend to America or the World..!!

    Congressional members with dual American / Israeli Citizenships are TRAITORS, they should be lined up against a wall and SHOT…!!

    Israel / Zionist Jews are the Blood Sucking Parasites of the World.
    They are nothing more then Leeches, feeding on Humanity and sucking the life out of Mankind.
    The sooner this World is rid of them the better we all will be.

  3. OK.. here is a BIG one. Forget the suck Geldorf... but honestly... BIG musicians... like a seriously BIG open air concert at one of the passes... the remainders of Floyd, Neil Young, Peter Gabriel, international musicians... a huge down the wall concert...

    focusing all eyes on this... throwing a lil clout out...

    Getting in to visit Gaza and the people...

    I was gonna suggest Bono but he is so sold out...

    mmm Robert Clay... Robert Plant... Jimmy Page... Aerosmith... whoever... what a gas that would be

    and what on earth would Israel do to so many big names all together at one place at one time?

    that could be a powerful thing to be quite honest. Ah well, I can dream....

  6. you are a hateful bigot just flapping your gums. that type of general, un-provoked hatred and cruelty is just the stuff Nazi Germany was made of and I am outraged that this type of anti-semitism is still alive and kicking. None of you have all the facts and information to state such one sided, vicious remarks. Do your research, first and foremost, and THEN leave a vile remark.
    And then go fuck yourself.
