Rock musicians have always rallied around unpopular social and political causes. Trying to free some murderer or stop forest logging or making sure girls get coupons for abortions with their grade school lunches. Roger Waters picked support of the Palestinians and a boycott of all things Israel. He’s asking other musicians to join him in not performing in Israel. Waters says he was inspired by Stevie Wonder’s announcement that he was going to boycott Florida after the Zimmerman acquittal. You know, even though pretty much every legal scholar had to admit that jury verdict was correct under Florida law. His political viewpoint is actually pretty common among European elites who hate Israel for being successful and Jewy. But it’s pissed off Israeli model Bar Refaeli who wants her images removed from Waters’ visual media displays during his concerts.
I’m not completely fluent in Hebrew, but that translates roughly into, Fuck You, Roger Waters, though it’s right to left so it could be Roger Waters, fuck you.
