Joan Rivers: If New Jersey Fired on NY, We Would Wipe Them Out

Jewish entertainers Joan Rivers and Howard Stern are lone pro-Israel voices from the entertainment world. Where is Streisand?

Jewish entertainers Joan Rivers and Howard Stern have spoken out loud and clear for Israel in the war on terror, but most of  the largely liberal and left-wing Hollywood Jewish community suddenly has gone underground.

They no longer are able to defend Gaza  but don’t have the small courage to break their bleeding heart image and actually say that Israel is righter than right in the war against Hamas. Not a peep has been heard from Barbara Streisand, who sang for then-President Shimon Peres last year and sang “Aveinu Malkenu.”

Joan Rivers and Howard Stern are exceptions.

Stern’s comments, which already have been widely publicized, cannot be reprinted here because he used more four-letter words than can be written in one article.

Rivers was caught on film by TMZ, which asked her what she thought about the war and the “killing of civilians” in Gaza.

Rivers, never at a loss for words, retorted, “Let me just tell you if New Jersey was firing rockets into New York we would wipe them out. If we heard they were digging tunnels from New Jersey to New York we would get rid of Jersey.

“So I don’t want to hear anymore, oh, we’ll do a partial truce. You cannot throw rockets, and expect people not to defend themselves.

“Don’t put your goddamn things in private homes. I’m sorry, don’t you dare put weapons stashes in private homes.”

She added that Hamas started the war and for clinchers told the interviewer, “You’re all insane. They started it. What are you all saying. They started it.”

Stern went bananas when a caller on his SiriusXM radio show tried to defend Hamas. “If you’re anti-Israel, then you’re anti-America,” Stern shorted before calling Israel is “the only friend we have who’s willing to fight and stand up for what’s right.”

When the caller opined that “Zionists run Israel,” which is as obvious as saying that American run America, Stern spewed out almost every expletive every invented.
