    Laurie Cardoza-Moore, president of the Tennessee-based Proclaiming Justice to the Nations is calling on all Jews, Christians and people of conscience to protest Roger Waters’ concert this Sunday at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. Once known for his role in the British rock band Pink Floyd, Waters has become a global ambassador of the movement to Boycott, Divest and Sanction (BDS) the State of Israel. The British musician has paraded on stage in a mock Nazi uniform and hoisted an inflatable pig emblazoned with a Star of David above his stage in concert. This in addition to spreading lies about...
  • Trump's Border Wall Hits Snag Among Some Republicans

    President Donald Trump's call for $1.5 billion this year to help build a wall along the border with Mexico could be in jeopardy as fellow Republicans in Congress weigh delaying a decision on the request. Republican Senator Roy Blunt, a member of his party's leadership, told reporters on Tuesday that money for the wall likely would not be coupled with a spending bill that must pass by April 28 to avoid shutting down federal agencies whose funding expires then. Blunt said the must-do funding "comes together better" without Trump's additional request for the border wall and military programs and could...

    It may not be the reunion fans were hoping for, but Pink Floyd have come together to support a pro-Palestinian activist group. The Women’s Boat to Gaza is part of the Freedom Flotilla Coalition. It contains 13 women, including the 1976 Nobel peace laureate from Northern Ireland, Mairead Maguire, and it journeyed from Barcelona to Gaza in September in order to bring attention to the Israeli’s naval blockade of the Gaza Strip. The organization posted on its website that they lost contact with the boat on October 5th, and presume that the Israeli Occupation Navy has surrounded it in international...

    'The artists of the country are the people you need to communicate with and make a relationship with and learn from and build upon. So I absolutely don't believe in the boycott, and here I am.' Oscar-winning actress Helen Mirren said Wednesday she was a "believer" in Israel and rejected efforts to boycott it. Mirren showered Israeli artists with praise and said she opposed both the efforts by pro-Palestinian groups to boycott them and the decision of some international artists to shun Israel. "I think that art is an incredibly important way of communication," she said at a press event...

    Presidential candidate John Kasich vows to reunite Pink FloydUS PRESIDENTIAL candidate John Kasich has a new campaign pledge up his sleeve - to reunite Pink Floyd if he is elected to the Oval Office. Republican Kasich, who is the governor of Ohio, faces competition for the spot in his party from Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. However, he is hoping that a plan to get Pink Floyd back together might give him the edge. Kasich said that seeing Pink Floyd's The Wall tour in Pittsburgh was his favourite gig of all time and praised Roger Waters as an "incredible...

    Is the power of the White House enough to get Pink Floyd back together for one more concert? The obvious answer to that question is "almost definitely not," but that isn't going to stop Republican presidential hopeful John Kasich from doing his level best to reunite the dormant group if he ends up winning the 2016 election. Kasich made his unexpected campaign pledge during a Feb. 1 interview with CNN... "...if I'm president," he decreed, "I am going to...try to reunite Pink Floyd..." First on Kasich's wish list for the reunion set: "Money," from 1973's Dark Side of the Moon.

    Jerusalem Post ^ | 11/05/2015 | SHMULEY BOTEACH
    In a lengthy interview with Rolling Stone magazine this week, former Pink Floyd front man and Israel-hating obsessive Roger Waters demonstrated his all-consuming preoccupation with the Jews. He speaks about watching Jewish Life Television late at night and reading about "old local Jewish ladies" who organize protests against him. Like most anti-Semites, he peddles central Jewish coordination theories, asserting that pro-Israel efforts, such as this very column, are organized by the prime minister of Israel's office. "Hasbara, the arm of the Prime Minister's Office that we all know starts with Netanyahu in Tel Aviv. It’s very organized, and I see...

    France’s highest court of appeals has upheld a decision that found BDS advocates guilty of inciting hate and/or discrimination, the Representative Council of French Jewish Institutions has reported. Last week the Court of Cassation ruled on a case involving two attempts to boycott Israeli products in the Carrefour supermarket, one in 2009 and one in 2010. The boycotters were wearing shirts with the slogan “Long Live Palestine, Boycott Israel,” handed out pamphlets stating that the sale of Israeli goods supports “war crimes” in Gaza, and yelled slogans such as, “Israel assassinates, Carrefour is complicit.” …

    “The world hates the Jews. In or out?” – David Mamet Politics is downstream from culture. So when a cultural icon like Roger Waters sits down with supplicant Gideon Levy from Haaretz, to “set the record straight” that he really and truly isn’t an Anti-Semite, and that BDS really and truly isn’t an anti-Semitic movement, it is incumbent upon all Jews to refute Waters’ libelous statements. Well, Roger Waters is an Anti-Semite. He literally spouts one falsehood after another, and when I challenged him on his Facebook page, his only response was, “Brainwashed to the best”. That’s always the case...

    Pink Floyd officially breaks up after announcing a new album, The Endless River, to be released later this year. Guitarist David Gilmour stated that the legendary band is done for good, according to Death And Taxes. Pink Floyd had originally split 20 years ago, but continued with some of the few surviving members who was still associated with the group. Breaking up wasn’t quite a new beginning for the band, even though they are releasing a new album from tracked culled from the sessions that produced 1994’s The Division Bell.

    JERUSALEM, Israel -- What does the Presbyterian Church USA and Pink Floyd's Roger Waters have in common? They both support boycotting Israel, a sweeping movement that's trying to delegitimize the Jewish state. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says a great struggle and international campaign is being waged against his country to "blacken its name." "It is not connected to our actions; it is connected to our very existence," Netanyahu said. "It does not matter what we do; it matters what we symbolize and what we are." Just this week, the CEO of French mobile phone giant Orange said he'd cut...

    <p>It was 20 years ago this year, Pink Floyd began to disappear. But now it seems the classic British band is about to materialize again.</p> <p>Polly Samson, the wife of the band's lead singer-guitarist David Gilmour, has announced via Twitter that a Pink Floyd album called “The Endless River” will be released come October. But Samson says it’s “based on 1994 sessions,” which would seem to indicate these will be old tracks goosed with new overdubs. Pink Floyd released what seemed to be its final album, “The Division Bell,” in April 1994 (an album that just received the deluxe reissue treatment).</p>

    Recently, two surviving founders of Pink Floyd sent the rock band equivalent of a diplomatic cable — an open letter published in Salon — to the Rolling Stones. They asked Mick Jagger and his crew to cancel their first-ever concert in Israel to demonstrate solidarity with the Palestinian people and their struggle against occupation. But Pink Floyd hit a wall. The Stones not only went on with the show Wednesday night in Tel Aviv but delayed their opening by 45 minutes to allow devout Jews time to reach the concert after the end of the Jewish holiday of Shavuot, during...
