Mira Awad

Musician

Israeli-Arab pop singer and former Eurovision song contest winner Mira Awad has always believed that music brings people of different backgrounds closer together – which is why she took aim at British rocker Roger Waters in June 2020, over the former Pink Floyd vocalist’s backing for the anti-Israel boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement. Awad urged Waters to have the “courage” and “the balls” to visit Israel, perform in the country, and share his thoughts while there, rather than opposing dialogue between Palestinians and Israelis from his base in London. “The boycott movement – you’re cutting the conversation,” Awad charged. “I’m trying to work a conversation and you’re cutting the conversation.” (Photo: Wikimedia / Creative Commons License)
