English musician Roger Waters, co-founder of Pink Floyd, is a vocal advocate for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel, championing the movement as a way to “oppose Israel’s occupation of the West Bank, and violations of international law and Palestinian human rights.”
Ahead of the release of his film, “The Wall,” which documents a concert production of Pink Floyd’s 1979 album of the same name, Waters told HuffPost Live’s Alyona Minkovski that he’s been “attacked" in the press over his views.
“It is perfectly legitimate to criticize any government’s policies,” Waters said. “But that doesn't mean you’re criticizing the people who live that or that you’re criticizing a particular religious sect. I’m not criticizing Jewish people or Judaism.”
“I don’t have an anti-Semitic bone in my body,” he continued.
