Roger Waters has delivered his latest unhinged rant against Israel that crossed over into anti-Semitism to a worrying level.

Former Pink Floyd bassist called Jewish philanthropist and casino mogul Sheldon Adelson a “puppet master” who believes only Jews are the “completely human”. He called Zionism “an ugly stain” and accused Israel of teaching US police forces to “murder blacks”.

This all took place in a June 20 interview with a Hamas-affiliated television network and it is quite remarkable how many anti-Semitic tropes Waters was able to fit into his short interview.

According to a video published by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), Waters told Shehab News Agency, “Sheldon Adelson, who is the puppet master pulling the strings of Donald Trump, Mike Pompeo and what’s his name … the ambassador [to Israel], Greenberg [sic] I think his name is. Sheldon Adelson is the puppet master pulling all of the strings. And Sheldon Adelson is a right-wing fascist, racist bigot who doesn’t understand the first thing about the idea that human beings might have rights.”

The United States Ambassador to Israel is David Friedman. Waters went on to accuse Adelson of believing that Jews are superior to all other human beings.

“He has this strange – he thinks – biblical construct in his head, that somehow everything will be all right in the world if there is a Greater Israel, which takes up the whole historic Palestine and the Kingdom of Jordan — puts it all together and calls it Israel and gives it only to the Chosen People,” Waters said. “He is crazy.”

The musician then accused the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) of creating the knee-to-neck technique Officer Derek Chauvin used on George Floyd on May 25; Floyd later died after claiming he couldn’t breathe.

“That is an Israeli technique, taught to the militarized police forces of the U.S.A. by Israeli experts, who the Americans have been flying over to the United States to teach them how to murder the Blacks because they have seen how efficient the Israelis have been at murdering Palestinians in the occupied territories by using those techniques,” Waters said. “And they are proud of it. They are proud of it. The Israelis are proud of it.”

The full transcript of what Waters said is as follows:

Roger Waters: “Sheldon Adelson, who is the puppet master pulling the strings of Donald Trump, Mike Pompeo, and what’s his name… The Ambassador [to Israel], Greenberg [sic] I think his name is. Sheldon Adelson is the puppet master pulling all of the strings. And Sheldon Adelson is a right-wing fascist racist bigot who doesn’t understand the first thing about the idea that human beings might have rights. Sheldon Adelson believes that only Jews – only Jewish people – are completely human. That they are attached in some way…”

Interviewer: “God’s Chosen People…”

Waters: “[He believes that] everybody else on Earth is there to serve them. Sheldon Adelson believe this. I’m not saying Jewish people believe this. I am saying that he does, and he is pulling the strings. So he has this strange – he thinks – Biblical construct in his head, that somehow everything will be all right in the world if there is a Greater Israel, which takes up the whole historic Palestine and the Kingdom of Jordan — puts it all together and calls it Israel and gives it only to the Chosen People… He is crazy. This is a crazy, crazy, crazy guy. Unfortunately. This crazy, crazy, crazy guy is also incredibly rich and has the tiny little – I nearly said the P-word that is used to describe the male genitals – prick of Donald Trump in his pocket.

“The murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis last week was done with a technique invented by the IDF, by the occupation forces. The Israelis invented [the technique of] ‘let’s kill people by kneeling on their necks and cutting off the blood supply of the carotid artery to the brain.’

“That is an Israeli technique, taught to the militarized police forces of the U.S.A. by Israeli experts, who the Americans have been flying over to the United States, to teach them how to murder the blacks because they have seen how efficient the Israelis have been at murdering Palestinians in the occupied territories by using those techniques. And they are proud of it. They are proud of it. The Israelis are proud of it. They go: ‘Look how good we are at this, you can learn…’

“Zionism is an ugly stain, and it needs to be gently removed by us.”
