USA: Roger Waters calls out fellow musicians for refusing Israel cultural boycott

Pink Floyd co-founder and bassist Roger Waters called out fellow musicians for not adhering to the cultural boycott on Israel as part of the BDS movement for Palestinian rights in an interview in Washington DC, Wednesday. Waters said Radiohead singer Thom Yorke was «wrong» for saying that playing in the country does not endorse the government. Waters went on to claim that any artist who chooses... Еще to play in Israeli is «making a public statement that they do endorse the policies of the government whatever they say, because that is what will be reported in Israel and that is what gets reported around the world.» Answering a question on why he doesn’t appear often on mainstream media or on popular late night TV shows, Rogers said «We're not quite sure but it comes from above. So you can figure it out for yourself, it's not rocket science.» The comments came after Radiohead refused to cancel a gig scheduled in Tel Aviv last month after supporters of the BDS movement asked the band to join the cultural boycott. Yorke explained the decision in a tweet, saying “playing in a country isn’t the same as endorsing its government.” He also tweeted «we’ve played in Israel for over 20 years through a succession of governments, some more liberal than others. As we have in America.»
