Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters Sparks Fury By Comparing Israel To The Nazis.
The parallels between Israel and Germany in the 1930s are ‘crushingly obvious’.
He’s right. The Israeli state is engaged in brutal subjugation of the Palestinians in exactly the same way as the Nazis treated the Jews.
It’s not on the same scale. Netanyahu isn’t herding millions into gas chambers but the effect is the same on each individual. The level of immorality is the same and the vile, zionist state of Israel will persist in infamy for the rest of history just as the Nazis. As will those who comprise the despicable US Israel lobby, members of which are complict in the genocide. Palestinians may not die from Zyklon B, instead it is white phosphorous, tanks and F16s against civilians and guerilla resistance.
Of course, just as in Germany in the 1930s, there will be many innocents who oppose their own government’s actions. Clearly, many Israelis are good people but there are also worryingly large numbers who are apathetic or ambivalent at a time when courage in the face of evil is a moral duty.
I first wrote similar words on this website in 2009 since when I have been been systematically harassed and abused, not just by zionists but by the sort of scum who will twist any strongly-held opinion to their own, dishonest ends. My articles have been edited to portray me as an anti-semite and shared across the world to demonise me. I have had hate websites and Facebook pages set up about me. My children and elderly parents have been harassed and abused. In 2012, the hatred and continuing abuse severly affected my health. It still continues to this day although I have learned better how to cope with it.
Inevitably, when I became a public figure and was elected as leader of CLEAR, my articles were used against me. Even those who had recognised my support for Palestine, as soon as they saw they could distort my opinions to their advantage, blatantly reversed their position, embarked on a construction of lies and untruths against me.
When, in due course, in the High Court, the depth of their dishonesty becomes clear, it is their own words that will condemn them to all who believed their lies.
But such men are pygmies compared to those who have the courage to speak the truth in the face of evil. Just like the monsters who drive the Israeli machine of oppression, judgment will be visited on them in the end.
I shall have to dig out my old Floyd LPs. It is rewarding to find support in old friends.
