Here's A Wall You Forgot, Mr. Waters!



Lou Minetti points out the collossal hypocrisy of Roger Waters' self-important demands that Israel tear down the security barrier that has saved hundreds of innocent Jews from dying at terrorists hands:

I notice that Roger has never protested the wall pictured below. Or more precisely, the double-layered electrified fence topped with razor wire and patrolled by armed soldiers.


This is a barrier the Spanish government has erected in Morocco, a sovereign country, in order to prevent African immigrants from entering Spain. But where are the shouts about an "apartheid wall"? Why don't I hear the cries of "racism!" leveled against Spain, like those that are thrown at the U.S. whenever the erection of a similar wall to run along the Mexican border is debated?

Minetti:

Spain continues to occupy African territory. It seems odd that Roger finds nothing wrong when Europeans build such a barrier in a foreign land to keep out unarmed people who want nothing except a job and a better life, but hates it when Jews build a wall in their own land to protect themselves from suicide bombers.

More European anti-Semitism, and anti-Americanism...why do we even give this crumbling continent - the home of fascism, communism, and the Holocaust - the time of day anymore?
