Roger Waters and The Star of David

just an old guy with a guitar
















It’s not his new band but rather a new bit of contrived controversy.  Waters uses the religious symbol in his stage show and according to the rags- the Jews are pissed.  I find this ridiculous, simply because its being made newsworthy when its got to be about 4 people who are really just pissed off they cant get concert tickets.  Am I trivializing the topic?  Yes.  It’s ridiculous.

The controversy began with the use of the Star of David, which appears on Israel’s flag and is a symbol of its government, in the show as one of the animated symbols dropped from a fighter jet during the song “Goodbye Blue Sky.” Other symbols included a crucifix, crescent moon, and the U.S. dollar sign.

“‘Goodbye Blue Sky’ is all about and how I feel about the fields of the earth being bathed in blood because we’re so determined to bombard our fellow man with our bit of ideology, or our bit of this, or our religion, and some took issue with that,” Waters says.

Waters really shouldnt have commented at all considering how lame that response was.  Wait there is more.

“His shows deliver messages, breaking down wall, etc. He uses symbolism, and that’s one issue,” Foxman told The Associated Press last week. “It’s artistic exuberance and crossing the lines of whatever, but he’s not an anti-Semite.”

“Since then, because of the complaints from some of the Jewish community, we’ve added a crucifix and star-crescent,” Waters says.

But what has proved the greater concern for Foxman is Waters’ support of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, which calls for economic, political and cultural pressure on Israel to protest its policies against the Palestinians.

How about this, how about everyone shut the fuck up and listen to the music.  If you don’t agree with his imagery stay home and listen to the album.  Roger Waters is nothing more than a musician, he is not a political professional nor an advocate.  Hes a high school drop out with a guitar- treat him as such.
