Malca Goldstein-Wolf launched a petition to prevent WDR from using tax-payer money to fund a “Jew-hater”. She said Tom Buhrow, the chairman of the Cologne-based TV outlet, is allowing the spread of antisemitism by televising Waters, who is an energetic supporter of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign targeting Israel, and has used anti-Semitic imagery at his concerts.
Buhrow responded in a Facebook post to Goldstein-Wolf on Saturday, writing, “I sense that not many words and arguments will convince you, rather only clear action. The cooperation with the concert was ended.”
Goldstein-Wolf’s online mid-November petition titled “No support for the anti-Semite Roger Walters with public funds of the WDR” garnered nearly 1400 signatures.
