Neil Young now slammed for playing in Israel

Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters is slamming Neil Young and Scarlett Johansson – accusing them of neglecting human rights.

Neil Young Israel 1995Waters writes his criticism in personal letters and a public statement on Facebook.

He cites what he believes are several alleged human rights abuses by Israel, including political discrimination against Beduin communities in the South and citizens who are not Jewish, according to The Jerusalem Post.

Neil is scheduled to play at Hayarkon Park on July 17 in Israel.

The Pink Floyd musician says Johansson recently signed on as Israeli company Soda Stream’s spokeswoman amid controversy over the company’s factory in Mishor Adumim, in the West Bank.

    Jerusalem Post:

    First and foremost, Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Neil Young and his band Crazy Horse will fill Hayarkon Park in Tel Aviv with squalls of amplified grunge on July 17 in a show entitled “The Past, the Present and The Future with Neil Young and Crazy Horse.”

    Along with Bob Dylan, Paul Simon and Eric Clapton and a handful of others, Young is one of the only rock & rollers that launched a career in the 1960s and maintained their artistic pedigree, appeal and commercial viability into the present without turning into an “oldies” act.

    While there may be a laid-back version of “Heart of Gold” or “The Needle and the Damage Done,” the show will likely focus heavily on the prolonged jams and psychedelic excursions Young and Crazy Horse perfected on songs like “Down By The River” and “My My Hey Hey (Out of the Blue).”

    It will be Young’s second performance in Israel, following a 199[5] show at the Caesarea Amphitheater with Pearl Jam following their collaboration on the Young album Mirror Ball.

    Did someone mention boycott?tion boycott?
