Anti-Defamation League (ADL) National Director Abraham Foxman penned an open letter to British musician Roger Waters addressing the Pink Floyd co-founder's recent remarks on Israel and his repeated calls to boycott the Jewish state.

Foxman, in the letter published on The Huffington Post Friday, questions possible anti-Semitic underpinnings in the rocker's "flawed nature" of his campaign against Israel, which according to the ADL director, have "caused us to reexamine your attitude towards Jews."

In his reproach of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) advocate, Foxman writes: "Your single-minded obsession with trying to convince others to boycott the Jewish state, while ignoring the world's true human rights violators, must be driven by something other than a guilty conscience."

Waters earlier this week published his own open letter calling on his colleagues in the music industry to join him in a cultural boycott on Israel.
