Roger Waters' original plans for his Israel gigs upset some Palestinians; now, his actions while in the country have outraged right-wing Israelis. So, we guess, that makes his visit pretty balanced.

Waters spray-painted on the wall being built by the Israeli government to somehow overcome the threat of terror by inflicting a painful and obvious wrong on yet more Palestinians. Itamar Ben-Gvir and Baruch Marzel have filed official complaints calling for Waters to be charged with damaging IDF property (no, really) and want him detained in the country until police investigate.

So, apparently it's a wall strong enough to stop suicide bombers, and yet it gets damaged by paint? What exactly are they building this out of?
