Israel-Palestine issue is glaring example of how some people have rights and some people don’t - Roger Waters to RT

Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters, facing a campaign to deplatform him from SXSW after a pro-Israel group got his ads pulled from Major League Baseball, told RT the accusations of antisemitism are a distraction from human rights.
The musician and activist slammed campaign by the pro-Israel activist group B’nai B’rith to smear him as an anti-Semite and have him removed from the South by Southwest (SXSW) music festival in Austin, Texas, where he is scheduled to give the keynote speech to an audience of hundreds of thousands of people.

In an interview with RT, Waters explained that spurious antisemitism accusations are part of a deliberate and massive campaign to distract from Israeli human rights abuses.


“It muddies the waters over one very specific issue, which is the issue of the settler-colonial occupation of the land of Palestine by Israeli armed forces…human rights should be something that is fundamental, that applies to all people equally,” Waters said. “Clearly the Israel-Palestine issue is a glaring example of somewhere where some people have rights and some people don’t.”

"The reason brought up so often is so that we will not address the fundamental issue of whether what I say is true or not."
