Roger Waters: Boycott
against Israel is ´way to go´

Jerusalem Post [Israel], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 3/22/2013 4:45:21 AM

Former Pink Floyd bass player Roger Waters has asked fellow musicians to boycott Israel and asserted that the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel was "the most effective way to go." In an interview with The Electronic Intifada, Waters accused Israel of being an "apartheid regime," and said sanctions like those imposed in the past on South Africa are the only way to handle the situation in the Palestinian territories. Waters also told The Electronic Intifada that he is planning on publishing an open letter addressed to his musician colleagues worldwide,

Maybe we ought to boycott Waters. Boycotts are a two-way street. Who cares about Pink Floyd music anyway.

Don´t associate Rogers missed deeds with the rest of Pink Floyd. Don´t forget that when Roger Waters no longer wanted to have a Pink Floyd he sued the other 3 members, To prevent them from using the name Pink Floyd. Thankfully, he lost.

Their music is like no other, and, in my opinion have done some of their best work since Roger has been an ex member.

Waters should know. After all he came up with ´The Wall´ which was the most pretentious overdone rock show ever. Ask anyone who loved ´The Wall´ and they will admit to having been stoned or drunk at the show.

#14 - Saw "The Wall" show a year ago. Was the same band that played the Republican Convention! Problem with "The Wall" is that Kamen´s orchestral parts accompany what´s basically an expensive movie. No live players for the better part of 20 minutes. It really doesn´t translate well.

Buy Pink Floyd to study Parsons and Ezrin. Wish there was a way to cut out Waters´ses profit he obviously does not appreciate it.

We tend to elevate our major athletes, sometimes it seems even to the same level, or above, where we place our nation’s military. It’s an easy mistake to make these days. Almost everyone has played sports, while a very small percentage of us have ventured to foreign lands in the name of freedom. Also, games are fun! War … not so much. If we make the additional mistake of equating compensation with value, then there is a large discrepancy in our valuation of athletes over members of military. Athletes are compensated lavishly, while soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines risk their lives

Internet data watchers Hold Security published a post this week revealing that they have found "360 million stolen and abused credentials and 1.25 billion records containing only email addresses." These figures, they added, "are not meant to scare you." Too late. The security firm explains that they made the discovery in the first weeks of February, and that the data was likely stolen in a number of separate breaches, including one massive theft of 105 million records. Hold Security said that it is investigating independent breaches, and that the disclosure is meant as a "call to action." Hold Security´s chief information security

A single mom with five kids living in Brooklyn with no income on record and struggling to make ends meet sounds like an eligible candidate for government subsidy programs. She signs up for the SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) and Medicaid for herself and her children and gets government assistance to help cover her rent. But in reality, she’s married, her husband has an all-cash business, which allows her to rake in thousands of dollars a month via welfare programs and remain undetected by the government. Todd Spodek says this scenario is common, and that people try to milk entitlement programs all

Spike Lee missed the point

There was an important kernel of truth buried in director Spike Lee´s recent tirade against gentrification. New York City, like other big cities, has experienced a decades-long economic squeeze in which the cost of housing has soared while wage levels dropped, leaving middle-class families feeling pinched, punished and pushed out. Lee´s 10-minute, obscenity-laced rant about changes in his old Brooklyn neighborhood, Fort Greene, was deliberately offensive and, at times, incendiary (you can listen to it -- uncut -- here). He accused white newcomers to the area of being rude and disrespectful of local culture.

DONETSK, Ukraine - In the afternoon, when the shift ends at the coal mine and the miners walk out into the cold and past the old concrete statue of Lenin, they often head to a tiny corner store a block away. There they´ll stand in the parking lot for a while, drinking little bottles of the vodka called "Truthful." They know what is happening in Kiev, the capital city that can seem so far away. They´ve seen pictures of the democracy protesters shot dead in Kiev´s streets, and the TV reports on the mansions of ousted President Viktor Yanukovych, the one-time thug and pro-Russia politician who grew up in this far-eastern city.

SMOULDERING fires, streets covered in soot, a smell of burned tyres; young men in military rags wandering around purposelessly. A heavy atmosphere of apprehension, anger and disbelief still sits on Independence Square, the gathering place in Kiev that has lent its name, Maidan, to the political protest movement born there, and thereby to the broader popular sentiment that supports it. Despite the toppling of Ukraine’s president, Viktor Yanukovych, there is no sense of triumph among the quiet tears and loud words. But there is an abiding power. That is why the country’s new cabinet presented itself for Maidan’s “approval” on the

A talking parrot has helped Indian police crack an intriguing murder mystery and led the cops to arrest the killer. In the western Indian city of Agra in Uttar Pradesh state, a 45-year-old woman and her pet dog were found murdered at her residence on 20 February. The victim, Neelam Sharma, was the wife of Vijay Sharma, the editor of a Hindi daily. The city police had been baffled by the murder mystery till Neelam´s husband got a clue from the parrot, which showed a change in behaviour whenever a relative, Vijay´s nephew Ashutosh, visited the house after the incident.

The health insurance industry fighting proposed cuts to Medicare Advantage payments argued they will raise seniors´ out-of-pocket costs next year. America´s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), a trade group, blasted the reductions with a report Thursday finding that beneficiaries could pay as much as $900 more in 2015 if the cuts take effect.The report by consulting firm Oliver Wyman concluded that Medicare Advantage (MA) plans could see a 5.9 percent total cut to their payments next year as a result of changes proposed by federal health officials.

In April 2009, my husband was shot six times in front of me in the middle of a busy restaurant by a man who was stalking me. I have a permit to carry a handgun but because of the law at that time in my home state of Tennessee, I had to leave the gun that I normally carried for self defense, locked in my car that night.

Simferopol, Ukraine -- Armed men in uniforms stood guard outside the main airport in Ukraine´s southern region of Crimea on Friday, but reports conflicted on whether they had taken control of the facility. Ukraine´s Interior Minister Arsen Avakov accused Russian forces of staging an "armed invasion" in the Black Sea peninsula, claiming they had blocked one military air base and entered an airport overnight. Avakov, writing on his Facebook page, said Russia´s actions in Crimea were "an armed invasion and occupation," and "a direct military provocation on sovereign Ukrainian territory." But it´s still not clear who the armed men are.

If you listen to the chattering class in Washington, D.C., Hillary Clinton is a virtual certainty for the 2016 Democratic nomination, and the front runner in the next presidential race. But in private, rumors persist that the former Secretary of State may not even be capable of making it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton, these skeptics often say, will not run for president again because of health concerns. These ubiquitous rumors of her health have been fueled in part by the supermarket tabloids. The National Enquirer wrote in 2012 that Clinton had brain cancer, something a spokesman dismissed then as “absolute

The “greatest buried treasure ever unearthed in the United States” is about to be hit by the tax collector. According to Kathleen Pender, a columnist at the San Francisco Chronicle, the couple who found in cans buried on their property more than 1,400 rare gold coins worth more than $10 million will probably owe close to half of that sum in federal and state income tax, whether or not they sell the coins.

Kerry Kennedy has been found not guilty of drugged driving — and gave herself a hearty round of applause after jurors were dismissed from court by a Westchester County judge. The jury handed down the verdict after just 30 minutes of deliberation Friday morning. The six-member panel had deliberated about 45 minutes Thursday night after being handed the case. Kennedy — who had faced up to a year in jail if convicted — hugged both her lawyers as the verdict was read, and then began clapping after the jurors left the courtroom.

President Barack Obama is warning Russia "there will be costs" for any military maneuvers it launches in Ukraine, a move U.S. and Ukrainian officials say they believe to be already underway. Officials say Obama may retaliate by canceling a trip to Russia this summer for an international summit and could also cut off trade discussions with Moscow. But it´s unclear whether those moves will have any impact on Russia´s calculus in Ukraine, which is at the center of what many see as a tug of war between East and West.

President Barack Obama fired a few verbs across the front armor of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s tanks, in a rushed statement just after 5 p.m. on Friday. The statement was made as Russian forces — including attack helicopters — appeared in peripheral parts of the Ukraine that are largely populated by ethnic Russians. There’s no evidence that Obama wants to get involved in what may become a war between the Ukraine and Russia. He did not threaten any significant retaliation if Russian force attack nor did he offer military aid to the Ukraine. He announced that Vice President Joe Biden — but not

Chu, if you haven’t heard of him, is the “Jeopardy” contestant nonchalantly bulldozing America’s collective nostalgic vision for how game shows should work, who cruised to his eighth straight victory on Thursday night. The insurance compliance technician from Ohio who is also a “stand-up comedian, Shakespearean actor, improviser, tour guide, genius and, most importantly, voiceover artist,” according to his Web site — has used his renegade style

Benghazi: Former CIA acting Director Mike Morell might be recalled for testimony to determine if he misled Congress and doctored the White House response to a terrorist attack to ensure President Obama´s re-election. The administration´s tangled web of Benghazi lies might be unraveling some more. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich., has told Fox News that Morell, a former deputy director and twice acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency, will likely be recalled to testify. The recall comes after new charges surfaced that Morell misled Congress about what he knew regarding the 2012 Benghazi attack and when he knew it.
