Former Pink Floyd bass player Roger Waters has asked fellow musicians to boycott Israel and asserted that the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel was "the most effective way to go."

In an interview with The Electronic Intifada, Waters accused Israel of being an "apatheid regime," and said sanctions like those imposed in the past on South Africa are the only way to handle the situation in the Palestinian territories.

Waters also told The Electronic Intifada that he is planning on publishing an open letter addressed to his musician colleagues worldwide, asking them to join the BDS movement and refuse to perform in Israel, and at Israeli events worldwide.
