Israeli Model Demands Roger Waters Stop Using Her Photo Over Israel Boycott

If you're going to boycott Israel, you better go all the way, especially if you ask others to do so. At least that's how Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli feels after Roger Waters- of the Brit band Pink Floyd- called on fellow musicians and singers to boycott her country. Although he enthusiastically promotes the boycotting of Israel, it appears he has no problem using an Israeli beauty's photo as part of his video art during his concerts. Once flattered, she has now demanded that stop.

“Roger Waters, you better take my picture off of the video art at your shows. If you’re boycotting — go all the way,” Refaeli tweeted early Wednesday in Hebrew.
Initially posted on the pro-Palestinian site Electronic Intifada, Water's wrote:

“I write to you now, my brothers and sisters in the family of Rock and Roll, to ask you to join with me, and thousands of other artists around the world, to declare a cultural boycott on Israel.
Not everyone has jumped on the boycott bandwagon, in spite of pressure from the Boycott Israel movement. The Pet Shop Boys went ahead and played there, as did Alicia Keys, after being told by author Alice Walker that she was headed for hell if she did.
