Roger Waters, formerly of Pink Floyd, endorsed the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanction (BDS) movement in 2011.

Since then, his rhetoric has gotten more and more extreme, including comparing Israelis to Nazis. He uses a giant balloon of a pig at his concerts, featuring a Jewish Star of David on its side.

Israeli homes built on land captured in the 1967 war is the perennial go-to blame game for Palestinians’ hard line at negotiations.  But it’s just a negotiating ploy as to which Western leaders are all to eager to engage.
