Former Pink Floyd Frontman Blasts Israel Wall

Here we have another celebrity getting involved in something that he obviously knows little about. My advice to Roger Waters to do some research on Hamas. A good place to start would be with their charter.

"Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it." (The Martyr, Imam Hassan al-Banna, of blessed memory).

"The Islamic Resistance Movement believes that the land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf consecrated for future Muslim generations until Judgement Day. It, or any part of it, should not be squandered: it, or any part of it, should not be given up. "

"There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors."

UN Documents Separation Wall Crimes

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM – The United Nations has premier a documentary on the plight of Palestinians living in the shadow of Israel's separation wall built on their lands in the occupied West Bank.

"The reason for walls is always fear, whether the personal walls that we build around ourselves or walls like this that frightened governments build around themselves," says former Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters, the film narrator.

"They are always expressions of a deep-seated insecurity

The 15-minute documentary, “Walled Horizons”, opens with a wide shot of Waters walking along a towering concrete segment of the controversial barrier beneath the painted silhouette of a giant lying on its back.

The filmmakers interview a Palestinian farmer who has lost several hectares of land to the Israeli wall and a family caught in the 'seam line' between the wall and the 1967 Green Line separating Israel from the West Bank.

The documentary concludes with a shot of scores of Palestinians packed into a fenced-in corridor waiting to pass through an Israeli checkpoint.

The 700km-long Israeli separation barrier is a mix of electronic fences, concrete walls, trenches, and closed military roads.

According to UN figures, Israel has so far completed 413 kilometers of the barrier.

"It fills me with horror, the thought of living in a giant prison," said Waters as he spray-paints "We don't need no thought control" on the wall.

Waters is an English rock musician best known as the bassist player and one of the main songwriters and lead singers in the Pink Floyd from 1964 to 1985.

He is known with his progressive rock music, philosophical lyrics, and humanitarian interests.
