Uber-left Rockstar Roger Waters gets trolled by Israeli officials for April Fool’s. He’s not taking it well.

Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters was incensed by an April Fool’s Day prank by Israel’s Strategic Affairs Ministry.

The British rock star, who actively promotes the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel, was anything but amused when the ministry punked him by announcing a fake summer show in Tel Aviv, The Jerusalem Post reported.

“Pink Floyd legend @rogerwaters is coming to Tel Aviv! Mark your calendars!” the April 1 tweet read.

Savvy Twitter users picked up on the joke and joined in on the prank.

But Waters found it to be “no laughing matter,” blasting the ministry for its gag. The 75-year-old musician exploded in all caps in response.

He linked to a Facebook post where he continued his rant against Israel, again in all caps.

“THE MURDER OF UNARMED CHILDREN AND PARAMEDICS AND JOURNALISTS AND OTHER PEACEFUL PROTESTERS BY COWARDS IN UNIFORM WITH HIGH POWERED SNIPER RIFLES FROM BEHIND FORTIFIED POSITIONS IS NOT A MATTER FOR JEST,” Waters posted.

According to Breitbart News:

The “peaceful protests” Waters refers to in his post are the so-called March of the Return riots organized by Hamas along the border with Gaza in which Palestinians have hurled rocks and Molotov cocktails at Israeli soldiers, burned tires, launched petrol and explosives-laden “terror kites” and other incendiary devices over the border into Israeli territory, infiltrated the security fence with weapons and used snipers to shoot Israeli soldiers.

 

Waters’ ongoing crusade against the Jewish State of Israel is not new, and he has long been a member of the BDS, a movement started in 2005 to press Israel over its occupation of territories that are sought by Palestinians. German public broadcasters cancelled plans to air his concerts last year citing “accusations of anti-Semitism against him.”

His social media rant over the April Fool’s Day prank earned him plenty of rebukes on Twitter where users urged him to just calm down, and even consider using his talent to promote peace instead of division and hatred.
