(A7/WIN) At a Berlin concert Roger Waters compared Anne Frank to Shireen Abu Aqleh, an Al Jazeera journalist shot while in an active combat zone.

According to spectators, he also dressed up as an SS soldier and pretended to fire a rifle.

MK Danny Danon (Likud) condemned the comparison, saying, “At a Berlin concert, Roger Waters compared Anne Frank to Shireen Abu Aqleh, a journalist shot while in an active combat zone. Waters seeks to compare Israel to the Nazis. He is disgracefully one of the biggest Jew haters of our time. And he is a worse musician than David Gilmour.”

Israel’s Foreign Ministry responded, “Good morning to everyone but Roger Waters, who spent the evening in Berlin (yes, Berlin) desecrating the memory of Anne Frank and the six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust.”

StopAntisemitism org responded, “This vile Jew-hater also compared the murder of Holocaust victim Anne Frank to the accidental killing of a reporter covering the Israel/Palestinian conflict. How did Germany allow this to happen in 2023?!”

At the Berlin concert, Waters was also seen dressed in an SS uniform and “firing” a dummy rifle. While it is illegal in Germany to display any Nazi symbols, several people defended Waters’ costume on Twitter by saying that the performer was simply “reenacting a scene” from a 1982 movie based on an album by the Pink Floyd band Waters fronted for years ago, World Iarael News Reported.

Waters, who is an extreme leftist and a BDS advocate, has made the comparison before, as the slides are part of his anti-establishment audio-visual show whose theme is that democracies like the U.S. and Israel are violent and suppressive., WIN Pointed Out

Waters performed as part of his German tour, “This is Not a Drill.” Prior to his performance, people demonstrated in front of the Olympiahalle.

Reuters noted that previously, local politicians had demanded that the performance be canceled due to accusations of anti-Semitism against Waters.
