It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

Set The Controls For The Heart of Your Butt

This is what happens when a musician who has made some good records, and has developed a loyal audience, decides to save the world. Here's a bit of advice: get your facts first before you fart.

For the record I have been a fan of Pink Floyd since I went to the Dark Side of the Moon back in the '70s. I have also been a fan of Roger Waters as a solo artist. But for years we have been subjected to his bleeding heart and blind idealism when it comes to things like the Arab/Israeli conflict.

Anyone familiar with Waters is aware of his obsession with his father's death in World War II, and walls being knocked down, most notably the one in Berlin and, most recently, the barrier erected by Israel that has virtually eliminated homicide bombings launched from the West Bank.

He has been to both sides of the "wall" (most of it is really a series of fences), and regularly comments on how brutal the Israelis are, and that everyone should have freedom of movement (which I agree with, but with freedom comes responsibility). From his previous statements on the issues, not to mention some of his inanely obtuse lyrics, such as,

"The Germans kill the Jews and the Jews kill the Arabs and the Arabs kill the hostages..." [from his "Amused to Death" album]

it's plain to see that Roger's brain only accepts information in one side of his brain, or one side of the fence.

One might want to give Waters the benefit of the doubt regarding his simplistic and uninformed views on the subject, but he managed to wash that all away at an event in Israel this past week in which his curt answers reveal his being infected with LIV: Liberal Ignoramus Virus.

Waters is in the process of helping to revive a rundown movie theater in Jenin. A worthy project to be sure. Who doesn't like a good movie? But when asked whether he was worried that the theater might end up in extremist hands and show hateful propaganda films he said that the man who was expected to run the theater::

"would rather die than let it be taken over by extreme religious or political forces."

Yeah, and there's a chance that he will. Your concern is underwhelming, Roger.

When asked whether he was aware of the final status plan Prime Minister Ehud Olmert offered Mahmoud Abbas (97% of the West Bank and part of East Jerusalem as the capital) Waters said, "I am not aware of this."

Guess what Roger? You're an idiot. You're probably also not aware that honor killings and the execution of homosexuals is a common occurrence there too. But what the fuck do you care? There's a must come down. Israel is wrong. The Arabs are right. How fucking noble.

You didn't comment on the context in which the barrier was built, nor did you comment on the fact that, though it has divided communities, and Arab and Jewish friends, it has essentially eliminated homicide bombing deaths in Israel, attacks which are a violation of human rights and international law, which you are always foaming at the mouth about. But apparently you don't see a need to apply those things to the Jews, like so many other liberal hypocrites. Jews have no need to protect themselves in the face of the world's lack of desire to defend Jewish human rights, or apply international law equally in the conflict. Thanks for the notice buttwipe.

No doubt you will say that two wrongs don't make a right. If the world community had stopped the first wrong, the killing of Israeli civilians by the Arab martyr homicide death cult, there would be no barrier, moron.

When you aren't even aware of the basic and essential facts on the ground; that Abbas was offered his state and this conflict could have been resolved, it's time for you to shut the fuck up and go home. We have enough ignorant idiots blowing it out their asses as it is. A mentally healthy individual would have shut up after showing his ignorance regarding the Olmert deal, or at least would have tried to gain more information before commenting further, but not you. It's because you suffer from Liberal Ignoramus Virus. Dumbass, heal thyself with truth.

Set the controls for the heart of your butt.

Oh no! Not Pink Floyd!

Unfortunately, there are so many people who don't look at all the facts or keep up with the real news, not the news we get on CNN/MSNBC.

Keep on getting this info out, Shtuey. Thanks. ;-)

Yes, even Roger has succumbed. He's been there for a while now, but since there's a wall now it's like a moth to the flame.

If he can get the Arabs to stop trying to kill us I'll help him knock the fucker down myself. But mostly it sounds like he thinks we deserve what we get.

Thanks buttface.
