Open Letter War Between ADL Abe Foxman and Pink Floyds Roger Waters

ADL Open Letter to Roger Waters


Your Animosity Towards Israel Colored by Anti-Semitism

New York, NY, August 22, 2013 … The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today issued an open letter to Roger Waters, a founding member of Pink Floyd, strongly criticizing his outrageous July 25 letter to the Rock and Roll community which endorsed the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement and called on fellow musicians to join him in refusing to perform in Israel.
ADL pointed out that Water’s views on Israel are colored by offensive and dangerous undercurrents of anti-Jewish sentiment.
The following is the text of the open letter to Mr. Waters from Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director:
Dear Mr. Waters,
Your recent statements about Israel and advocacy for BDS have garnered significant condemnation, with some going as far as to label you an anti-Semite. This is not the first time you have encountered such allegations.
Over the past few years, you have incorporated Jewish imagery into your concert performances, painting a Star of David on your famous floating pig alongside other symbols, including a dollar sign and the sickle and hammer. You repeatedly rejected accusations of a malicious subtext to the use of the Star of David, assuring fans that you were in no way equating Jews with money or communism. We took you at your word, and defended your actions as artistic expression void of anti-Semitic intent.
In recent months, however, your relentless attacks against Israel and calls for a boycott of the Jewish State have caused us to reexamine your attitude towards Jews.
In your July 25th letter to your “Colleagues in Rock and Roll” you offered full-throated unambiguous support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, writing that their goal is “to bring international attention to these Israeli polices [of ‘occupation of the West Bank and violations of international law and Palestinian human rights’] and hopefully, to help bring them to an end,” and imploring other musicians to join you in refusing to perform in Israel.  > > > MORE
