My Mideast Punchlines: Parsons has a nose for detecting BDS bullsh*t….

Musician Alan Parsons gave his former Pink Floyd colleague Roger Waters a sharp slap in the face this week over BDS, letting Waters know that he will share his music with anyone who wants to hear it. And perform in Israel, he jolly well did.

In the process, Parsons drew attention to the immoral nature of the pro-Palestinian BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement, which is bent on punishing the people of Israel, not the government whose policies Waters claims it opposes. Waters, whose passion for BDS borders on religious extremism, has personally intervened numerous times when artists such as Neil Young have scheduled performances in Israel.

Small FistParsons’ nose for the hypocrisy of his former colleague is to be applauded. The hapless Roger has consistently muddied the waters when it comes to Israel. No doubt he now considers Parsons a fink (American slang for snitch) in a funk. Live with it, dodger, old boy. Deep down, you must know that BDS stands for Bullshit, Defecation and Scatology.  Well, it is a movement, ain’t it?
