Legendary Pink Floyd performer Roger Waters will be playing in Tel Aviv this July!
Here’s the tweet that Israel’s Ministry of Strategic Affairs put up.
Waters is known to be a major BDS advocate and a brazen anti-semite. On numerous occasions, he has taken to social media and other news outlets to apply pressure on other famous artists to not perform in Israel.
Sure this was a lighthearted joke, but not for the man himself.
Waters immediately took Twitter and Facebook
APRIL FOOLS DAY POST BY THE ISRAELI MINISTRY OF STRATEGIC AFFAIRS:
"ROGER WATERS TO PLAY IN TEL AVIV 16th JULY 2019.”
HO! FUCKING HO!
EXCEPT THIS IS NO LAUGHING MATTER.
THE MURDER OF UNARMED CHILDREN AND PARAMEDICS AND JOURNALISTS…

“HO! F******* HO!”
“THIS IS NO LAUGHING MATTER. THE MURDER OF UNARMED CHILDREN AND PARAMEDICS AND JOURNALISTS AND OTHER PEACEFUL PROTESTERS BY COWARDS IN UNIFORM WITH HIGH POWERED SNIPER RIFLES FROM BEHIND FORTIFIED POSITIONS IS NOT A MATTER FOR JEST.”
He added: “YOU DISGUST ME, AND YOU DISGUST THE WHOLE OF THE REST OF THE CIVILIZED WORLD,” attaching a photo of a Palestinian doctor covered in blood who he claimed, “WORKED ALL DAY TO SAVE SOME OF THE LIVES YOU HAVE TRIED TO DESTROY”.
