Roger Waters and Piers Morgan clash over anti-Semitism claims and Israel Palestine conflict after being called “world’s dumbest rockstar”

Roger Waters and Piers Morgan ended up butting heads over Israel, Palestine and anti-Semitism in an episode of Piers Morgan Uncensored. Waters has made his support for Palestine very public but has also been frequently accused of anti-Semitism, which he has strenuously denied on the basis that he takes issue with the state of Israel, not Judaism as a whole.He has previously accused Israel of “abusing the term anti-Semitism to intimidate people like me into silence”, and back in November he speculated that the “fishy” attacks perpetrated by Hamas on October 7 could have been a “false flag operation”.Waters was also the subject of a documentary, The Dark Side Of Roger Waters, which was produced by the Campaign Against Anti-Semitism.

Let’s all boo war.

Why Ireland’s Galway Film Fleadh Has Made Palestine Its Country of Focus: ‘Solidarity’ and the ‘Quality of the Work’

Alex Ritman The 2024 Galway Film Fleadh on Ireland’s tranquil and picturesque west coast is set to open with one of the noisiest films of the year, “Kneecap.” A comedy biopic about the real-life Belfast rap group of the same name, the feature became a breakout hit in Sundance (where it was picked up by Sony Pictures Classics) and has since been gathering steam from various other festivals ahead of its August release. The band — who all play themselves in the film — have been amassing fame and notoriety along the way, releasing a new album last month, going on sell-out tours and recently playing Glastonbury to what was described as a “headline-worthy crowd.” Unashamedly and refreshingly outspoken, the trio rap and talk openly about their desire for a united Ireland, the history of British oppression in the country and the power of the local language in battling colonialism (“Kneecap” is predominantly in Irish and should qualify for the international feature Oscar).

They began with ‘Bold O’Donogue’ and ‘Love Will Never Conquer Me’, before ‘The Rich Man and The Poor Man’, during which they thrilled the crowd with the lyric: “The rich are fucking cuntions”.The band then went on to express support for Palestine amid the ongoing Israel-Gaza war before the start of the anti-war track ‘Lots of Little Soldiers’.They were witty too: “What, did you think you were coming to see professionals?” quipped Charles Hendy as his bandmates had to quickly retune between tracks.Peter Hooton, frontman of 1990s indie dance band The Farm, was among those in attendance as The Wallopers worked their way through renditions of folk classics, tweeting: “Absolutely packed at the Park stage for the brilliant @MaryWallopers.”Absolutely packed at the Park stage for the brilliant @marywallopers @glastonbury pic.twitter.com/KMww5P43Oe— TheFarm/PeterHooton (@TheFarm_Peter) June 28, 2024It looks as though the band may have found themselves some new fans with their set, one telling them on Twitter/X that they’d “never heard of you before today but absolutely loving it, pure happiness,” while another described them as “unreal”.Earlier this week (June 24) the Mary Wallopers shared their latest EP, ‘Home Boys Home’, and announced a UK tour for 2025.
