Two members of Pink Floyd, Roger Waters and Nick Mason, apparently disapprove of Rolling Stones' plans to play in Isreal in June.


The duo wrote in a column for Salon.com that playing in Israel is like playing in South Africa during apartheid days, the Washington Post reported.

They asserted that the Stones should support the 'Boycott, Divest and Sanction' movement that was started by Palestinians in 2005 to protest what they say is Israel's illegal "occupation" of Palestinian territories.

The two explained that the BDS movement is designed on the unbeaten peaceful movements that helped end Jim Crow in the American South and apartheid in South Africa.

Both the musicians asked fellow musicians to reconsider their plans of playing in Isreal in 2014 and also to think about what they would do if they are forced to live under military rule and discriminatory laws for decades.
