Former Pink Floyd bassist and lead singer Roger Waters is well known for his public stand against Israel and its harsh policies on Palestinians. He has condemned many musicians for performing in the country. With the finals of the Eurovision Song Contest happening in Tel Aviv, he took to Twitter to go on a bizarre rant.
Roger Waters was criticised by former Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan.
She also wrote that she doesn’t understand why artists boycott an entire country when they are performing for people and not governments.
Though he seems to be over the top in his criticism of Israel, Roger Waters has definitely helped raise awareness about the policies of the country with regard to Palestinians. He has used his power as a celebrity to make people more aware of the situation and has brought communities together to good effect.
