Wall Tour Sparks Controversy

What is shaping up to be one of the most successful tours of 2010 (story) is drawing criticism from some Jewish organizations and the Anti Defamation League (ADL).  The groups are complaining about images being projected during the Roger Waters tour featuring music from The Wall, the double concept album Pink Floyd put out in 1979.  The segment plays during Goodbye Blue Sky and includes bombs shaped like the star of David and dollar symbols being dropped, symbolism said to be a statement against the security fence Israel has erected.  The ADL's national director has branded the images as 'outrageous', basing his objection on concern that Waters is, '...playing into and dredging up the worst age-old antisemetic stereotype about Jews and their supposed obsession with making money'.
