Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters in antisemitism row over The Wall tour

Anti-Defamation League's claim that use of Stars of David and dollar signs on stage is antisemitic fiercely rejected

Pink Floyd's Roger Waters is under fire from the Anti-Defamation League for the use of a Jewish symbol in his new stage show. During each performance of Goodbye Blue Sky, Stars of David and dollar signs are among the symbols dropped like bombs from aeroplanes.

"Of course, Waters has every right to express his political views about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through his music and stagecraft," said the League's director, Abe Foxman. "However, the images he has chosen, when put together in the same sequence, cross a line into antisemitism… We wish Waters had chosen some other way to convey his political views without playing into and dredging up the worst age-old antisemitic stereotype about Jews and their supposed obsession with making money."
