Members of the Jewish community in Germany on Sunday evening protested during the concert of musician Roger Waters at the Frankfurt Festhalle.

The members of the group tried to rush the stage while holding Israeli flags and singing "Am Yisrael Chai" (“the people of Israel live”), reported Kan 11 News.

The group was ultimately removed from the hall.

They were protesting the fact that the Pink Floyd co-founder compared Anne Frank to Shireen Abu Aqleh, an Al Jazeera journalist who was shot dead while covering clashes between IDF soldiers and Palestinian Arab terrorists in Jenin last year, during a concert in Berlin earlier this month.

Police in Berlin have opened a criminal investigation into suspected incitement by Waters following the May 17 concert at the Mercedes-Benz Arena, in which he also donned a Nazi-style uniform on stage.

The 79-year-old said on Saturday that aspects of his performance that have been questioned were "quite clearly" a statement against fascism, injustice and bigotry.

"Attempts to portray those elements as something else are disingenuous and politically motivated," he tweeted.

In February, Frankfurt’s city council stopped a Roger Waters concert from going ahead, citing Waters’ status as "one of the world's most well-known antisemites" as the reason for the cancellation.

Last month, an administrative court ruled that neither the city of Frankfurt nor the state of Hesse had the right to cancel the Waters concert.

Waters is notorious for his anti-Israel statements and actions. He has in the past compared Israel to Nazi Germany and released a giant balloon pig bearing the Star of David during a concert in Belgium. Concert-goers said the Jewish star was among several symbols representing various corporations and fascist movements.

He has also called Zionism an “ugly stain” that must be removed. In defense of his actions, Waters argues that BDS “isn’t about music – it’s about human rights.”
