Roger Waters under fire for seemingly anti-Semitic stunt: Floating a pig balloon stamped with the Star of David at Belgium concert

By Hollie McKay

Some concert goers were left feeling uncomfortably numb at a Roger Waters performance in Belgium last week when a black balloon in the shape of a wild pig – bearing a Jewish Star of David as well as symbols of dictatorial regimes from around the world – floated above the audience.

“I came to the concert because I really like his music, without any connection to his political stance toward Israel,” Alon Onfus Asif, an Israeli living in Belgium, told YNetNews.com. “And I had a lot of fun, until I noticed the Star of David, on the inflatable pig. That was the only religious-national symbol which appeared among other symbols for fascism, dictatorships and oppression of people. Waters crossed the line and gave expression to an anti-Semitic message, beyond all his messages of anti-militancy.”

The Elder of Ziyon blog also posted crowd-shot footage of the soaring inflatable animal, and according to The Simon Wiesenthal Center, a leading Jewish Human Rights organization, Waters’ latest stunt has moved him to the front of the line when it comes to anti-Semitic entertainers.

"Waters has been a supporter of the anti-Israel so-called BDS [Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions] movement,” Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, said in a statement. “Waters deployed a classic, disgusting medieval anti-Semitic caricature widely used by both Nazi and Soviet propaganda to incite hatred against Jews.” . . .
