NEW YORK - The Anti-Defamation League on Wednesday slammed Pink Floyd's Roger Waters for using what the organization said was anti-Semitic imagery.

Waters during performances of "Goodbye Blue Sky" on his 2010-11 "The Wall Live" tour, which targets Israel's West Bank security fence, is using imagery long associated with stereotypes about Jews and money, the ADL said.

An animated scene projects images of planes dropping bombs in the shape of Jewish Stars of David followed by dollar signs, the organization said.

ADL National Director Abraham Foxman in a statement called the juxtaposition "outrageous."
