Roger Waters Defends Himself

Under attack from the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and other Israeli support groups for using images during the Wall tour that some consider anti-Semitic (story), Roger Waters has responded by calling the allegation he is anti-Semitic something that could not be further from the truth, telling the Independent, 'You can attack Israeli policy without being anti-Jewish.  He equates the criticism of the ADL to claiming someone is anti-Christian for opposing US policy. The ADL issued a statement that says the organization's opposition to the imagery being projected during concerts is based the use of the star of David and dollar signs with bombs dropping, and has nothing to do with the former Pink Floyd member's '...right to express his political views about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through his music and stagecraft.'
