Roger Waters, composer, lyricist, singer and bassist for rock mega-group Pink Floyd, has also become a "hero to genocidal terrorists" in his later life, notes watchdog group Eye on the U.N.

The group has created a video (below) that shows Waters in testimony before the U.N., comparing Israel to Nazi Germany and lying about Hamas's policy toward the Jewish State.

For millions of people worldwide who hold Pink Floyd's music dear to their hearts – the video may be a cause for some serious reflection on whether being a musical genius says anything about a person's morals, historical judgment and political acumen.

Waters performed before an audience estimated at 50,000 in Israel in 2006.
