Pink Floyd star Roger Waters says celebrities are 'scared shitless' to criticise Israel

Pink Floyd star Roger Waters has publicly stated his support for the BDS movement, saying that celebrities are “scared s***less” to speak out about the issue of Palestinian rights due to fear that their careers will be destroyed. 

Waters says he has been constantly labelled as a ‘Nazi’ and ‘anti-Semite’ since speaking out against Israel.

Independent.co.uk reports:

“The only response to BDS is that it is anti-Semitic,” Waters told The Independent, in his first major UK interview about his commitment to Israeli activism. “I know this because I have been accused of being a Nazi and an anti-Semite for the past 10 years.

“My industry has been particularly recalcitrant in even raising a voice [against Israel]. There’s me and Elvis Costello, Brian Eno, Manic Street Preachers, one or two others, but there’s nobody in the United States where I live. I’ve talked to a lot of them, and they are scared s***less.

“If they say something in public they will no longer have a career. They will be destroyed. I’m hoping to encourage some of them to stop being frightened and to stand up and be counted, because we need them. We need them desperately in this conversation in the same way we needed musicians to join protesters over Vietnam.”
