(JNS.org) Pink Floyd frontman and anti-Israel activist Roger Waters, continuing his campaign to encourage artists to boycott Israel, urged the Rolling Stones to cancel a planned performance in Tel Aviv this summer.

Waters and Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason wrote in a recently published an article in the online arts and culture magazine Salon, “With the recent news that the Rolling Stones will be playing their first-ever concert in Israel, and at what is a critical time in the global struggle for Palestinian freedom and equal rights, we, the two surviving founders of Pink Floyd, have united in support of Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS)… To the bands that intend to play Israel in 2014, we urge you to reconsider.”
