An American evangelical Christian leader is calling for a boycott of ex-Pink Floyd rock star Roger Waters’ Miami concert on Thursday.

“Roger Waters is a flagrant antisemite,” Laurie Cardoza-Moore — president of the pro-Israel group Proclaiming Justice to the Nations — said on Wednesday. “All Christians, Jews and people of conscience should publicly condemn him.”

“Everybody should do what they can to voice their concern that this antisemite is spewing his despicable brand of hatred in the Sunshine State,” she continued. “Contact your local lawmakers, picket the concert, speak out on social media, but whatever you do, do not remain silent.”

In recent years, Waters, 73, has spoken out against Israel’s West Bank security barrier and become a vocal proponent of the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement.

Also on Wednesday, the Greater Miami Jewish Federation placed on ad on the Miami Herald homepage with a message for Waters, whose concert will take place at the American Airlines Arena. “Anti-Semitism and hatred are not welcome in Miami,” it said.

    Waters is a vile anti-Semite. I have the distinct impression that the no-talent creep would love to shove Jews into ovens.

    Permanent laspse of reason,,, not funny only because Roger Waters was no longer apart of pink Floyd when that album can out,, it was written by David Gilmore.know your Floyd bro and leave Gilmore out of this discussion. You stand corrected my friend.

    Waters has degenerated into an angry, hate-filled, deluded crackpot, now reviled and shunned. He has successfully destroyed his name and reputation and can now revel in knowing he warrants inclusion within that special group of the unhinged.

    We are all entitled to our views, and if you get a venue to do it even better. You are are not level headed enough to say Roger Waters is spewing hatred. His views may be Anti-Semitic to the general Jewish population, but like I said, hadredis not Roger Waters thing.
