German broadcasters cancel support of Roger Waters’ tour after 'anti-Semitism' complaints

Anti-Semitism is such a ridiculous phrase. If there are Semites, people who speak Semitic languages, then the Arabs are Semites. "Israelis" speak hebrew because it became the state language only in modern times to trick people into believing they are the real Jews. Hebrew is not their native language, Yiddish is.



 Palestinians“are an occupied people, and there is an organized resistance against the occupying army,” Waters says.

'Two regional state-funded German stations will no longer promote and cover local concerts of Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters, known for his anti-Israel views, after public complaints and a petition.

Malca Goldstein-Wolf, a Jewish resident of Cologne, wrote to WDR, the regional subsidiary of national broadcaster ARD, critiquing Waters’ support of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign, which aims to isolate Israel through economic and political means over its treatment of Palestinians.

"Will WDR actually support the new 'Do not buy from Jews'? [a Nazi-era slogan] And use state money to do so?" wrote Goldstein-Wolf, who also started an online petition that gathered 1,500 votes.

First receiving coverage in local Jewish papers, the campaign was picked up by the national media and she told Bild that there had been a move towards “accepting the hatred of Jews” in German society.

After engaging in correspondence with Goldstein-Wolf, WDR director Tom Buhrow relented, and said that station was cutting its official partnership.

"I sense that not many words and arguments will convince you, but only clear action," Buhrow wrote in an email, which has been published in the German media.'

 The Cologne concert, which is slated for June 11 next year, is part of the musician’s “Us+Them” world tour, during which he will play in a handful of German cities, including Berlin and Hamburg. Bayerischer Rundfunk, the Bavarian ARD subsidiary, said on Sunday night that it will similarly halt its promotion of Waters’ gig in Munich.

Why BDS against the Rothschild Zionist colonial project?
