Roger Waters has expressed strong disapproval of Bono’s tribute to the victims of the October 7 attack at the Supernova music festival in Israel, carried out by Hamas. During one of U2’s residency shows in Las Vegas, Bono’s tribute was described by Waters as “disgusting,” and he referred to Bono as “an enormous disappointment.”

Bono’s remarks before performing “Pride (In the Name of Love)” reflected on the recent events in Israel and Gaza, with a focus on peace and non-violence. However, Waters criticized Bono’s choice to incorporate imagery related to the conflict, calling it one of the “most disgusting things” he’s ever seen.

In a subsequent interview with Al Jazeera, Waters reiterated his disdain for Bono’s actions, suggesting that those who know him should confront him about it. He also implied that Bono and others should educate themselves further on the situation before making public statements.

Additionally, Waters has been labeled as anti-Semitic in a new documentary titled “The Dark Side of Roger Waters,” produced by the Campaign Against Anti-Semitism. However, despite facing accusations of anti-Semitism, Waters stands firm in his belief that his criticisms are aimed solely at Israeli policies and not the Jewish faith. He emphasizes the importance of distinguishing between criticism of a government’s actions and discrimination against an entire religious or ethnic group. Waters continues to advocate for peace and justice in the region, calling for open dialogue and a deeper understanding of the complexities of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
