Roger Waters Critics Call for Boycott Over Pink Floyd Singer’s ‘Brazen Anti-Semitism’

The Wrap reports:
Roger Waters has urged his fellow musical artists to stop performing in Israel — and now the former Pink Floyd singer has been threatened with a boycott himself for his views on Israel.

Waters, who released his most recent solo album “Is This the Life We Really Want?” and is currently on the road with his Us + Them tour, has been targeted with a boycott by a group that accuses Waters of “espousing anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.”

In its petition, the group, which calls itself We Don’t Need No Roger Waters — a play on the lyrics to Waters’ “Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2)” — calls Waters “a leader of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign within the cultural arena.”
There's more:
The petition was launched as No.1 NY Times Bestselling Author and award-winning filmmaker Ian Halperin prepares to release his Roger Waters documentary “Wish You Weren’t Here,” scheduled for release this summer.
Roger Waters: winning hearts and minds.
