Former Pink Floyd front man Roger Waters compared the Israeli treatment of the Palestinians to Nazi Germany on Saturday and decried the “powerful” Jewish lobby in the US.
In an interview with CounterPunch magazine, Waters — a longtime supporter of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement — remarked, regarding the Palestinians, that the “parallels with what went on in the ’30s in Germany are so crushingly obvious.
“There were many people that pretended that the oppression of the Jews was not going on. From 1933 until 1946,” Waters said. “So this is not a new scenario. Except that this time it’s the Palestinian people being murdered.”
