All Jews, Christians and people of conscience must protest the weekend’s Roger Waters concert in Nashville, a leading evangelical Christian said Thursday.

“Roger Waters is a global symbol of Jew hatred that should not be welcome in Nashville or anywhere else in the United States of America” said Laurie Cardoza-Moore, president of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations, a non-profit organization established to educate Christians about their biblical responsibility to stand with their Jewish brethren and Israel.

Known for his role in the British rock band Pink Floyd, Waters has become one of the global ambassador of the movement to boycott, divest and sanction the State of Israel.

The British musician has paraded on stage in a mock Nazi uniform and hoisted an inflatable pig emblazoned with a Star of David above his stage in concert. In addition to spreading lies about Israel and comparing the Jewish state to Nazi Germany.

Cardoza-Moore, whose organization is based out of Tennessee, said that there would be no way that he would be welcomed in the state.

“Roger Waters is the poster boy for BDS, it’s time to give him a taste of his own medicine and send a strong message that antisemites aren’t welcome in Tennessee,” she said.

Cardoza-Moore, who is also the World Council of Independent Christian Churches special envoy to the UN, said that BDS is being raised up by those interested in the destruction of the Jewish state.

“The BDS movement has been hailed by Hamas, they both seek the total destruction of the Jewish State,” she said.

“Furthermore, BDS are responsible for an increase in antisemitism and violent attacks on Jewish students on campuses in America and around the world. Tennessee was the first state to pass legislation to publicly condemn the BDS movement. The BDS global brand ambassador should not be able to peddle his lies and conspiracies onstage within the city of Nashville.” 

She said that in accordance with the State Department’s guidelines, the BDS movement’s activities are clearly antisemitic.

“They seek to delegitimize, demonize and apply a double standard toward Israel, while remaining silent on real atrocities taking place worldwide.”

In order to stop the trend, Cardoza-Moore produced a docu-tainment called “Boycott This” with conservative Christian comedian Brad Stine to show that the Jewish people are not a people who have hatred in their DNA.

“These are a people who are constantly creating to make the world a better place, to actually fulfill what it says in the Scriptures, that they would be a light to the nations. And [we want] to present that story to Christians,” she told The Jerusalem Post prior to the film's release last year.
