Former Pink Floyd bassist Roger Waters intimated this week that a pro-Israel conspiracy controls what can be said about the Jewish state in the US media.

In a Russia Today (RT) interview, Waters was asked to comment on why his fervently anti-Israel views supposedly do not appear in the American media, leading Waters to recount an incident that allegedly occurred behind the scenes on PBS’ “Charlie Rose” talk show.

He claimed that he asked a producer of the show why he could not comment on Israel and was told, “We’re not quite sure, but it comes from above.”

Waters followed this with the cryptic comment, “So, you can figure it out for yourself. It’s not rocket science.”

One of the most outspoken supporters of the anti-Israel boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movement, Waters routinely attempts to persuade — some say bully — artists into canceling or refusing to play concerts in Israel.

Most recently, Waters led a massive public relations campaign against the band Radiohead, which defied Waters and his followers and played a concert in Tel Aviv last month to an enthusiastic crowd.

Waters told RT that Radiohead deserved criticism from “anybody with progressive ideas about human rights.”

    Why does my prior comment need approving???It contained no cursing or violence.Thought control at its greatest huh.

    Waters rightly knows the Jews own the media/wealth in America and the West.The truth will eventually come out about the control they have exerted over us and used to defile and destroy White Christian peoples.They revel in ruining our White children and turning them from God.Jews, you are truly of your father Satan.I call on Jesus and God to deliver us and protect us.He will not let us down.Waters may God bless and give you his protection in your noble,selfless endeavor.

    I suspect the Lord will drawback his protective hand from the life of Mr. Waters as well as others.Just as a good parent will allow various degrees of sufferings in their child’s life, Roger Waters needs to know and experience the consequences for his actions. Blessings or cursing’s are the two options for all of us.
