So let’s not excuse terrorism with some Israeli policy.
— largely an autobiographical account of her childhood in the West Bank — was adapted into a film by her then-boyfriend, Julian Schnabel.
Months after splitting with wife number four Laurie Dunning, he seems to have found love again – with someone who seems to share his disdain for Israel.
Pink Floyd legend Roger Waters, a vocal critic of Israel, is dating Palestinian journalist and author Rula Jebreal after divorcing his fourth wife.
Waters, 72, and Jebreal, 43, have been dating for a few months, in the aftermath of Waters’ split with wife Laurie Durning, Page Six can exclusively reveal.
Jebreal and Waters were introduced around five years ago by Durning and Jebreal’s husband, biotech entrepreneur Arthur Altschul Jr., from whom she is now separated.
Notorious anti-Israel hater and Pink Floyd bassist Roger Waters is making headlines once again following revelations that, after divorcing his fourth wife and an ensuing affair, he is dating Palestinian activist Rula Jebreal, The pair — he is 72 and she is 42 — were introduced some five years ago by Waters’ then wife, Laurie Durning, who was friends with Jebreal’s now estranged husband, biotech entrepreneur Arthur Altschul Jr.
According to a source who spoke with , Jebreal asked to meet Waters because of his anti-Israel activism, including his support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
The couples became fast friends and would dine together many times.
However, after Waters split from his fourth wife, the source said “he began an affair with Rula. Roger and Rula have been together around three months and they discuss Palestine all the time, they are both so very passionate about it.” In March 2011, Waters came out in support of BDS and a cultural boycott of Israel after visiting the security barrier that separates Israel from the West Bank, becoming one of the anti-Israel movement’s most high-profile advocates.
He has since accused Israel of a host of crimes — including the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians, apartheid and illegally occupying and annexing Palestinian land — and has launched a crusade against artists — such as Jon Bon Jovi, the Rolling Stones, Robbie Williams and Neil Young — who announce performances in Israel or in support of Israel-related causes.
“I think that the kind of boycott that was implemented against the apartheid regime in South Africa back in the day is probably the most effective way to go because the situation is that the Israeli government runs an apartheid regime in Israel, the occupied territories and everywhere else it decides,” he added.
regarding radical Islam alongside pro-Israel activist Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, Jebreal bemoaned what she called Israel’s ethnocratic policies in favor of Jews and its subjugation of Palestinians. You are a Palestinian woman who has Israeli citizenship. No one tells you who to fall in love with, you don’t get shot by your uncle or by your brother because you fall in love with somebody your father doesn’t approve of. You live with the kind of human rights that Israel protects.
Boteach quickly rejected Jebreal’s accusations, stating: With all due respect…When you start bringing up that Israel’s policy, it’s terrible that [Palestinians] are being targeted, Israel has to stop the segregation. Israel has 1.5 million Arab citizens, there is no segregation and we all know that.
