Howard Stern called out Roger Waters for his anti-Semitism, pointing out that it is the Jews Waters is irked by, and not Israel.
Radio show star Howard Stern had strong words for Roger Waters and his anti-Israel bias, and specifically for his latest attack on Jon Bon Jovi who performed in Israel this week.
Waters, a prominent anti-Israel activist and supporter of the BDS (Boycott, Divest, Sanctions) movement, wrote a vicious open letter to Jon Bon Jovi assailing him for his first-time performance in Tel Aviv this Saturday and accused him of all the wrong-doings in the world, telling him he stood “shoulder to shoulder with the settler who burned the baby.”
A passionate Stern attacked the Pink Floyd singer on his Tuesday radio show and accused him of anti-Semitism. “He’s gotta shut up, Roger Waters,” Stern said.
“What is with Roger Waters and the Jews?” the show host asked.
“Why does Roger Waters live in America, a country that was founded on white people coming in and obliterating the native population? How does he stand it? Why don’t we all leave?” said Stern, a vocal supporter of Israel.
“There are so many Arab countries and so much land around Israel that if you threw a pin in a pool, that’s what Israel is,” he said. “Picture a desert with no natural resources, no water, no oil. It was a sh*thole that nomads would essentially walk over. So they figured, where’s the one place they can stick Jews where no one will be offended.”
“Where do you want the Jews to go Roger?” Stern asked again. “Where do you want them to go? You want them to just go back to the concentration camp? What is it you want, f*ck head?”
“Where’s the one place they can stick Jews where no one will be offended? Because the Jews are getting killed all over the world,” Stern expanded. “Give them a little homeland on a desert where there’s no water, where essentially no one could live. And no one did live there despite the bullsh*t.”
“And the Palestinians are these Arabs that could live in Egypt, that could live in Saudi Arabia, but guess what? Those countries don’t want them either. So they have a country, and Israel has a tiny little country and it bugs the sh*t out of Roger Waters. He can’t f*cking deal with it. He’s writing letters to Bon Jovi.”
Waters has yet to respond.
He is a well-known campaigner against Israel and has voiced support for the Hamas terror organization. He regularly exerts public pressure on performers who are slated to perform in Israel and demands that they refrain from doing so, claiming it would generate pressure on Israel “Apartheid” and “criminal” government.
Conversely, Bon Jovi had only positive words for Israel and the Israelis. In an interview with Israel’s Yediot Aharonot this week, Bon Jovi said he “always heard what a wonderful place Israel is – the birthplace of all religions. I have been everywhere and Israel was a place that I’ve always wanted to visit, but it never worked out. This time I insisted that Israel must be on our list and it happened.”
