Fink Ploy

Like all too many artists, Roger Waters of Pink Floyd has partaken in the anti-Israel bigotry common in Europe and has been calling for sanctions against the state.  Now word has got out that in his concerts he includes the Star of David displayed alongside dictatorial symbols.

Here's the part of the article that interested me:

[Waters] had planned to publish a letter calling on musicians not to perform in Israel, but recently said he was reconsidering his position in order not to hurt people he knew who would be affected by the issue. By this he hinted at the possibility that artists who boycotted Israel might be hurt by pro-Israel organizations.

So Roger wants to punish Israel because he doesn't like its politics, but he may not because he fears people who disagree with him might have the nerve to take action.  How dare they.
