Bar Refaeli to Roger Waters

Take My Pretty Face Out of Your Israel-Hating Concerts

breaking news

Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli is NOT a fan of Pink Floyd, demanding its lead singer Roger Waters remove her photo from his concerts after he called for a boycott against the Holy Land.

FYI, Waters is a vocal supporter of a campaign called Boycott Divestment and Sanctions against Israel (BDS) and even floats a pig-shaped balloon with the Star of David at his shows.

Ironically, Waters' performances also include background video that uses a glamor shot of Bar Refaeli -- and the Israeli smokeshow doesn't like it one bit.

Bar tweeted Wednesday in Hebrew, "Roger Waters, you should remove my picture from videos at your concerts. If you’re going to boycott, then go all the way."

Funny timing, considering Israel and Palestine recently re-engaged in peace talks for the first time in five years.

Ha you're funny giving away land, if you mean stealing it from Palestine than you are correct. What do they call what you just did ummm double speak? Once again ignore the facts and call names. Typical zionist tactics.

So why doesn't Waters take his show to some Islamofascist state, where I'm sure he has lots of fans.

Maybe Bar should take a look at Drudge for the latest pics of those murdered in Syria and see what's being done there to protect her beloved Israel!! Maybe she can add "her pretty face" to that!!! Stupid bi$ch!!

Funny to see TMZ presenting the "Boycott Divestment and Sanctions" against Israel policies as some "israel-hating" material, nice propaganda as always.

reading the comments here makes me sad.
some talk bad about israel, without knowing a bit of what they are talking about. try to check all sides or come visit before you come with racist comments. others protect israel by calling the ignorant stuiped etc. instead of explaining peacfully... just make everything more hateful.
pink floyd IS one of the best bands ever, i have even tattooed them on my body admireing them that much. their music is still and always will be amazing to me but i am no longer a fan of them.
how disapointing is it to find out that someone you admire, you'd figure that someone who creates those kinds of music and texts has to be intellegent and a pretty speicial person- is racist? small minded?
he has put a symboll not only of israel but of a whole religion all over the world as a pig! am i a pig?! ive never hurt a fly. i live in israel and have palastinian friends and non of us understand this stuiped hate around us, arabs and jews. how primitive do you have to be to judge people because of their country without even living there and knowing the story? not everyone is for hate and war... but the star of david is the symbol of everyone. thats how historical mistakes repeat themself instead of teaching us.
SO dissapointing! and so many fans in israel are very sad by this stuiped move.

Maybe Roger Waters would prefer the audience in Gaza or Syria or Iran or Egypt or Lybia, since he hates Jewish people so much. He doesn't know what unjust means until you are dragged through the streets by a rope from the back of a motorcycle because you disagree with your government.

How many Jewish people in the governments of Egypt or Iran? Oh, none. Those states are suspiciously exempt from this phony BSD campaign.

This is a first...The israel propaganda machine hasnt totally dominated this conversation! Good work fellow freedom lovers. Could this be a sign that there bs propaganda has started to weaken? Or better yet its not working any more because the truth is clear as day. Lets hope this trend of enlightenment continues.

May I respectfully draw attention to the following please. Please accept my apologies if it is long. God bless you all.
* The UN view of the Palestinian Territories can be seen at
the following URL: http://unispal.un.org/pdfs/OCH....
* The West Bank and East Jerusalem is occupied Palestine (bilaterally recognised by 132 nations in the world including India, China, Russia, Brazil, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Iceland).
* Palestine is officially a non-member State and recognised by the UN. 138 nations supported Pales-tine last November in its successful bid for statehood. France, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Greece, Cyprus and Malta were among many European nations to support Palestine. Their vote for Palestine was important as were those cast by India, China, Russia, Brazil, Japan, Mexico and New Zealand who supported Palestine too. The Secretary General of the UN and Vatican Church wel-comed the re-birth of Palestine.
* However, Palestine (West Bank and East Jerusalem) is still illegally held and sadly Israel's Prime Minister Mr Netanyahu has ignored the ruling of the International Court of Justice (subsequently sup-ported by the UN and EU) with respect to the "separation barrier". This "wall" is 3 times the length of the Berlin Wall.
* UNESCO’s recognition of Palestine in 2011 was supported by France, Spain, Ireland, Belgium, Norway, Greece and other European nations.
* Please also see UNSC Resolution 478 concerning Jerusalem. The 4th Geneva Convention is appli-cable to all the Palestinian Territories.
* International law and UN Resolutions (over which there are over 150) are ignored by Israel's Prime Minister and Foreign Minister.
* UN Resolutions specify Israel's illegal hold of the Palestinian Territories to be a violation of the 4th Geneva Convention and as such is a War Crime under international law. More so now, that settle-ments are being placed in another nation.
Yours sincerely

1980 - BINDING
The Security Council, recalling its resolution 476 (1980);
reaffirming again that the acquisition of territory by force is inadmissible;
deeply concerned over the enactment of a "basic law" in the Israeli
Knesset proclaiming a change in the character and status of the Holy City of
Jerusalem, with its implications for peace and security; noting that Israel has
not complied with resolution 476 (1980); reaffirming its determination to
examine practical ways and means, in accordance with the relevant provisions of
the Charter of the United Nations, to secure the full implementation of its
resolution 476 (1980), in the event of non-compliance by Israel ; Censures in
the strongest terms the enactment by Israel of the "basic law" on
Jerusalem and the refusal to comply with relevant Security Council resolutions;
http://unispal.un.org/UNISPAL....
*** Resolution 694 (1991) - BINDING
Adopted by the Security Council at its 2989th meeting on 24
May 1991
The Security Council,
Reaffirming its resolution 681 (1990),
Having learned with deep concern and consternation that Israel has, in violation of its obligations un-der the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949, and acting in opposition to relevant Security Council resolutions, and to the detriment of efforts to achieve a comprehensive, just and lasting peace in the Middle East, deported four Palestinian civilians on 18 May 1991,
1. Declares that the action of the Israeli authorities of deporting four Palestinians on 18 May is in vio-lation of the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949, which is applicable to all the Palestinian territories
occupied by Israel since 1967, including Jerusalem;
2. Deplores this action and reiterates that Israel, the occupying Power, refrain from deporting any Palestinian civilian from the occupied territories and ensure the save and immediate return of all those
deported;
3. Decides to keep the situation under review.

*** Resolution 672 (1990) - BINDING
Adopted by the Security Council at its 2948th meeting on 12 October 1990
The Security Council,
Recalling its resolutions 476 (1980) and 478 (1980),
Reaffirming that a just and lasting solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict must be based on its resolutions 242 (1967) and 338 (1973) through an active negotiating process which takes into account the right
to security for all States in the region, including Israel, as well as the legitimate political rights of the Palestinian people,
Taking into consideration the statement of the Secretary-General relative to the purpose of the mis-sion he is sending to the region and conveyed to the Council by the President on 12 October 1990,
1. Expresses alarm at the violence which took place on 8 October at the Al Haram al Shareef and other Holy Places of Jerusalem resulting in over twenty Palestinian deaths and to the in-jury of more than one hundred and fifty people, including Palestinian civilians and innocent worshippers;
2. Condemns especially the acts of violence committed by the Israeli security forces resulting in inju-ries and loss of human life;
3. Calls upon Israel, the occupying Power, to abide scrupulously by its legal obligations and responsibilities under the Fourth Geneva Convention, which is applicable to all the territories occupied by
Israel since 1967;
4. Requests, in connection with the decision of the Secretary-General to send a mission to the region, which the Council welcomes, that he submit a report to it before the end of October 1990 containing his
findings and conclusions and that he use as appropriate all the resources of the United Nations in the region in carrying out the mission.
24th April 2012 – UK Foreign Secretary William Hague said:
“I strongly condemn the Israeli government’s decision yesterday to turn three illegal outposts in the West Bank into settlements. I urged the Israeli government in my statement on 5 April to remove - not
legalise - outposts across the West Bank”.
Furthermore, I would like to refer you to specific serious concerns raised by the International Court of Justice (2004) - with relevance to the ‘security barrier’ - which was viewed with alarm by the interna-tional community. Incidentally the reference to the illegality of settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem was also reinforced when the International Court of Justice also found the following (in-deed the EU supported the UN vote pertaining to the ‘security barrier’):
* That the separation barrier is intended to assist the settlements, the establishment of which violates Article 49 of the Convention. Also, the court pointed out that the restrictions placed on the local population located between the barrier and the Green Line are liable to lead to abandonment of the land, which also constitutes a violation of Article 49. In addition, the opinion stated that taking control of private land to build the barrier injured private property owners, and thus violated Articles 46 and 52 of the Hague Regulations of 1907 and of Article 53 of the Fourth Geneva Convention.
