Radiohead has attracted the support of R.E.M. lead vocalist Michael Stipe, who uploaded a post on Instagram on Monday supporting the band's decision to perform in Israel this later this week.

"I stand with Radiohead and their decision to perform", he wrote.

Responding to Stipe's message, a spokesperson for the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel, today told Artists for Palestine UK, "The continued dialogue Michael Stipe hopes for has literally been going on for decades, and it has done nothing to bring us any closer to securing our freedom, justice or equal human rights". In response, Yorke criticized Waters for throwing "shit at us in public" rather than engaging with the band behind the scenes.

"It's deeply disrespectful to assume that we're either being misinformed or that we're so retarded we can't make these decisions ourselves", said Yorke in a Rolling Stone interview. Anybody who's tempted to do that [gig], like our friends in Radiohead. if only they would actually educate themselves.

"I know Thom Yorke's been whining about how he feels insulted, people are suggesting he doesn't know what's going on". You ignored us all; you won't speak to anyone about anything.

"We've played in Israel for over 20 years through a succession of governments, some more liberal than others. We don't endorse (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu any more than Trump, but we still play in America". "So it's that kind of isolationism that is extremely unhelpful to everybody".
