Roger Waters Among 10 Most Antisemitic of 2018: Wiesenthal Center

Pittsburgh Massacre, Farrakhan and US Campus Incidents Make the Top 3

The Simon Wiesenthal Center, whose stated mission is to confront antisemitism, hate and terrorism, published its annual list of top antisemites and antisemitic incidents.

Topping the list was the October 27 massacre at the Tree Of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh where a 47 year old white supremacist Robert Bowers killed 11 worshipers and wounded 6 others as they were praying on Shabbat.

Louis Farrakhan, who in October of this year, compared Jews to termites in a speech to the Nation of Islam took second place and the epidemic of antisemitic incidents, vandalism and rhetoric in American campuses took third.

Roger Waters who is the celebrity voice of the BDS campaign to boycott the Jewish state made 10th spot this year. His attempts to redefine antisemitism for the victim are obscene and earns him a spot on the list.

The Mayor of Munich, Dieter Reiter said about Waters, “Waters has made increasingly unacceptable and anti-Semitic comments, I want to make it unequivocally clear that Waters’ anti-Semitic rabble-rousing is not welcome in Munich and will not go unchallenged.”

AirBnb whose decision to delist only Jewish-owned properties from its platform also made the list.
