As he once sang in a classic Pink Floyd song, “the lunatic is in my head,” the iconic rock band’s former singer and bassist Roger Waters offered up his twisted take on the war between Israel and the Hamas terror organization in Gaza.
The 80-year-old musician and activist who has been accused of anti-Semitism over his criticism of Israel, especially when it comes to siding with the Palestinians, suggested that the Jewish democracy is lying about the atrocities that were inflicted on its citizens during the cowardly October 7 attack by barbaric savages who butchered the elderly, women, children and babies in their own homes.
Sitting down with investigative reporter Glenn Greenwald on a recent edition of “System Update,” his show on the Rumble platform, the misanthropic rocker added to his extensive catalog of anti-Israel remarks with a conspiracy theory that could have been issued directly from the Hamas propaganda ministry, and for all anyone really knows, maybe it was.
Just when you thought Roger Waters cannot sink lower:
“We don’t yet know what happened on October 7th. Maybe there were some individual cases of civilians getting killed, but Israel is making up stories.”

“There’s something very fishy about that,” Waters said of the sneak attack, insinuating that it was a false flag, a sentiment that has been expressed by other Jew-haters.
Asked by Greenwald whether he believed that the slaughter of civilians was justified, Waters replied, by blaming Israel. “Was it justified for them to resist the occupation? Yeah. But again, it’s what you said, it’s the Geneva Conventions. They are absolutely, legally, and morally bound to resist the occupation since 1967. It’s an obligation,” he said.
“The thing was thrown out of all proportion by the Israelis making up stories about beheading babies,” he claimed.
“What we do know is, whether it was a false flag operation or not, or whatever, or whatever happened, and whatever story we’re going to get to … and we don’t know if we’re ever going to get much of the real story. It’s very, it’s always hard to tell what actually happened,” Waters added.
The ex-Pink Floyd singer didn’t bring up the deaths of over 260 concertgoers at an outdoor music festival who were massacred by the Hamas savages.
One of the legendary British band’s founding members when it was formed in London in the 1960s, Waters shared vocal duties with guitarist David Gilmour and served as the ideological driving force behind the group’s lyrics for such classic albums as 1973’s “Dark Side of the Moon” which is widely acknowledged as being among the greatest rock albums of all time, its 1975 follow-up “Wish You Were Here,” and 1979’s “The Wall” which was a semi-autobiographical tale of a mentally ill rock star that featured several hit songs including “Another Brick in the Wall,” “Run Like Hell,” and “Comfortably Numb.”
Waters notoriously spit on a fan during a 1977 show at Montreal’s Olympic Stadium, the incident would be one of the inspirations for “The Wall” which during Pink Floyd’s limited tour to promote it, featured a massive white brick barrier that was slowly constructed between the band and the audience.
The group which was well known for its fantastic light shows and props such as a giant inflatable pig – which Waters has used during his more recent solo tours for anti-Trump messages – split up in the mid-80s amid personality clashes, creative differences, and legal battles.
With Gilmore and fellow members Richard Wright and Nick Mason retaining the use of the band’s name, they embarked on their own 1987 tour behind the album “A Momentary Lapse of Reason” while Waters went it alone, never again achieving the commercial success of Pink Floyd while putting out albums that were more politically themed such as 1992’s “Amused to Death” as well as relying heavily on material from “The Wall,” enduring work which is regarded as his magnum opus.
Earlier this year, Waters was investigated by German police over wearing a uniform that resembled that of a Nazi SS officer during a show in Berlin.
