Supermodel Bar Rafaeli Puts ‘Dumb’ Roger Waters in his Place

Roger ‘Pink Floyd’ Waters learns not to start up with Israelis, especially a woman. And especially supermodel Bar Rafaeli. She exposed his hypocrisy of boycotting Israel but using her photo for his concerts.

Bar Rafaeli wins $113,000 in a lawsuit against Samsung for violating her privacy.

Israeli supermodel Bar Rafaeli is not all bad. She dodged the IDF and romanced tie with a non-Jew, but she draws the line at Roger Waters’ using her photo for his Boycott Israel campaign.

Bar Rafaeli put Waters on the spot Wednesday after he once again appealed to artists to boycott Israel, even though he once used a picture of Rafaeli to promote one of his concerts.

Waters’ latest letter to entertainers, part of which can be read here, asked them “to declare a cultural boycott on Israel…and support all our brothers and sisters in Palestine and Israel who are struggling to end all forms of Israeli oppression.”

Among other things, Waters has accused Israel of “apartheid” and “ethnic cleansing,” but click here to see a bit of his own ethnic cleansing.

Bar Rafaeli tweeted, “Crazy thing … Went to the Roger Waters show in Paris, and saw a pic of myself on the wall!!! #respect!!! I’m honored” but after reading his letter, she let off steam.

“Roger Waters, you better take my picture off of the video art at your shows. If you’re boycotting – go all the way,” Rafaeli tweeted in Hebrew on Wednesday.

She called him “ comfortably dumb” on his boycott Israel campaign.

Rafaeli’s challenge, that if he really wants to boycott Israel he can boycott her pictures also, echoes the pathetic lack of commitment of previous Israeli boycotters, who forget that their computers, mobile phones, generic medicines and a ton of other products are Israeli-made or designed.

Bar Rafaeli is probably the last person one would expect to challenge the Boycott Israel movement and is another example of Israel’s always having a secret defense weapon.

She  has not been a favorite of the national religious crowd. She dodged the IDF draft requirement for women, reportedly by marrying, which granted her an exemption, and then divorcing him.

After a threat to boycott her “Fox” fashion chain, Rafaeli agreed to visit injured IDF soldiers on visits to Israel and encourage enlistment in the army.

“I don’t regret not enlisting, because it paid off big time,” she later wrote. “That’s just the way it is; celebrities have other needs. I hope my case has influenced the army.”

She also offended Israelis, and not just the orthodox, for her former romantic relationship with non-Jewish American actor Leonardo DiCaprio.

One nationalist Israeli organization asker her in a letter not to marry a non-Jew the sake of “future generations of Jews.”

Four years ago, Haredim in Israel censured her for putting “poison” in Israeli society by allowing a Tel Aviv billboard campaign to feature  a picture of her semi-naked. The billboards later were removed.

She may be secular and not a fan of serving in the IDF, but under almost every Sabra there is a Zionist heart.

Waters got it in his head to promote the Boycott Israel movement after having ignored boycott advocates and arriving in Israel in 2005 to perform. Leftists gave him their side of the story at the security fence near Bethlehem, and he canceled his show in Tel Aviv and moved it to an Arab-Jewish community.

Rolling Stone reported earlier this year that he was re-considering  his position on the boycott campaign.

“I am thinking all of this through extremely carefully and I’m thinking it all through extremely carefully because I care more about the outcome, because I care about the people involved, than I do about the moment,” Waters said.

He didn’t think very much and penned his latest letter this past week, showing Rafaeli he really is ”dumb” about the boycott.

    Denying oppression , aparthied and occupation of Palestine is like denying

  3. Benny Gamal says:

    PINK FLOYD IS A TERRIBLY SELF-IMPORTANT AND VASTLY OVERRATED ROCK BAND… IT WAS PRAISEWORTHY WHEN ITS FOUNDER, SID BARRET, WAS STILL IN THE BAND AND FUNCTIONAL. AFTER THE OTHER WEASELS KICKED HIM OUT FOR BEING A TRAGIC VICTIM OF BAD MULTIPLE LSD TRIPS, THE REMAINING MEMBERS OF PINK FLOYD AT LEAST SHOWED A LITTLE CLASS BY DEDICATING THE "WISH YOU WERE HERE" ALBUM TO HIM AND PENNED A WONDERFUL SONG CALLED "SHINE ON YOU CRAZY DIAMOND," AS A TRIBUTE TO HIM.
    FURTHERMORE, THEY HONORABLY INCLUDED HIM IN ALL ROYALTIES THAT THE BAND EARNED AND WERE DUE MR. SID BARRET. THIS IS HONORABLE.
    BUT… THE CURRENT ROGER WATERS LED "PINK FLOYD" IS A SELF-IMPORTANT MOCKERY OF WHAT THE BAND ONCE WAS… AN, MR. WATERS IS A BOMBASTIC MORON WHO HIS EX-BANDMATE, DAVID GILMOUR, DETESTS AND REFUSES TO SHARE THE STAGE WITH.
    MAY G-D ALMIGHTY MAKE THIS "TALKING MULE" – MR. WATERS – SPOUT…MAH TOVU OHALECHA YAKOV…OH HOW GREAT ARE YOU ENCAMPMENTS ISRAEL!

    AND…THANK YOU MY DEAR FRIEND, MS. BAR RAFAELLI, WHO HAS BEEN JUDGED TO HARSHLY TO DATE BY MAN.

    AM ISRAEL CHAI!

    SINCERELY,
    BENNY GAMAL… HA KOHEIN HASHAMAIN.

    So Benny who is better of a Rock Band than Pink Floyd in your Opinion?

  5. Alan Kardon says:

    Is it possible when Pink Floyd did THE WALL one of the bricks hit Roger in the head? He surely is not playing with a full deck.

  6. aryehsax says:

    Try and get a Israeli Arab to move out of Israel. Give freedom to the West Bank, but look at what happened  in Gaza. Waters would like to live with releasing Rattlesnakes in his home, don’t think so.

  7. I too am a musician, with an international audience, and you do not speak for me and I do not in any manner agree with you or your boycott of Israel or the Jewish community Mr. Waters, especially over the reasons stated. Attempting to involve others in a cause that is not only divisive but untrue is not a wise use of your time or influence. Although you might not, I truly believe the words spoken to Abraham that those that bless Israel will be blessed and those that curse Israel will be cursed. The level of mis-information about Israel and the Jews is staggering and in most cases pathetically misguided at best. I encourage you to discover the truth of this matter (and there are countless documented sources that refute the ignorant bias against Israel) and for the record, I, as well as so many of my musician friends, stand with Israel.

  8. James Johnston Ferguson says:

    I prefer Bar!

  9. Vasile Pop says:

    Benny dear, David joined Rojer (and Nick) not long ago in London. And viceversa. And I find odd that everybody noticed the Star of David on the inflatable pig NOW. You know, he already did 200+ concerts with the same pig :) And it has also a Cross, a muslim sign, etc. Just because none of these parts is innocent.
