TEL AVIV – Women’s March leader Linda Sarsour was ripped on social media after posting a selfie with Roger Waters on a private jet with an accompanying text extolling the Pink Floyd frontman’s “empathy” and “personal risk” in standing up for the Palestinians.
Kind, compassionate, humble, active listener — that’s Roger Waters. I spent the entire day with him yesterday and we had great conversations about injustice, empathy, morals. He listened intently as I shared with him my story, what I believe, what hurts, what we must do to make this world a better place. We won’t always agree on everything but Roger Waters has taken great political and personal risk to stand up for the Palestinian people. When he speaks of what he experienced visiting Palestine and continuing to see the circumstances of Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank – tears well up in his eyes. He treated me as an equal and I am forever humbled to have experienced him as a human being who is much more than a rock star or entertainer — but a man full of empathy struggling to live a life worth living. #pinkfloyd #Palestine#rogerwaters #bds
