Pink Floyd’s Roger Water has turned graffiti artist before is his forthcoming gig in an Arab-Jewish village in Israel.

Waters was protesting against the ‘security’ wall around the West Bank built by the Israeli government which it says is to stop suicide bombers and protect its citizens.

The Pink Floyd man sprayed the words “tear down the wall” in red spray paint and told the BBC: "It's a horrific edifice, this thing."

He added: "I've seen pictures of it, I've heard a lot about it but without being here you can't imagine how extraordinarily oppressive it is and how sad it is to see these people coming through these little holes."

Waters is playing the town of Neveh Shalom as part of his current world tour, the show was originally due to take place in Tel Aviv.

However, the bassist moved the show after pressure from dozens of Palestinian artists.

They urged him to stay away “at a time when Israel continues unabated with its colonial and apartheid designs to further dispossess, oppress and ultimately ethnically cleanse Palestinians from their homeland.”

The world wide opinion, that is what is keeping them from doing it, in one shot, but when you look at the partition plan, it is quite well started, about 40% of the land that was plan for palestinians by UN, are stolen by israel, 400 000 palestinians who can't even go back to their homeland anymore.
