“My respect for Dylan fell with this song. I always thought of him as a liberal protest singer with a strong sense of right and wrong. This song screws all that.”
Your first error is presuming that a “liberal” is always correct.

Your second is that Dylan erred on the wrong side.

Third, he is no bigot.

Fourth, putting out “TV channels run by Israel-backed magnates” not only is factually wrong but slides into a Judeaophobic frame of reference that most people would recongize as gutter anti-Semitism.

Fifth, the most “obvious guilt” is that of the Arabs who refuse still to acknowledge any Jewish national identity anywhere in what the world recognized as the historic Jewish homeland.

Oh, as for Roger Waters, is he still going out with that Palestinian woman who he stole from her Jewish husband? Is that being too liberal?
