Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters loves to condemn Israel, and often pushes for boycotts of fellow musicians who dare to perform in the Jewish state. So, many people are wondering why he’s now conspicuously silent on the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

It wouldn’t necessarily be an issue that he doesn’t address the Russia-Ukraine conflict, except for the fact that just over a week ago Waters gave an interview in which he mocked anyone who believed Russia would really invade its neighbor.

“Everyone with an IQ understands that this is nonsense,” Waters said in response to what he called the “warmongering” of Western leaders and media alarmed by the Russian troop buildup on Ukraine’s borders.

Now that the invasion has indeed happened, Rogers has gone quiet on the topic. And hundreds of people commenting on his social media pages are wondering why.

Israeli media suggested this is going to come back to bite Waters, who now looks not only hypocritical, but down-right antisemitic. Why so eagerly condemn Israel over every perceived wrongdoing, while completely ignoring the most egregious act of military belligerency since World War II?
