Joan Rivers Defends Israel in Epic Rant

Joan Rivers Defends Israel in Epic Rant

(Language Warning) When TMZ caught up with comedian Joan Rivers Thursday outside of LAX she unleashed an emotional rant on the Israeli and Palestinian conflict, screaming, “You are all insane, they [Palestinians] started it!” 

Rivers got animated at the paparazzi’s question about the mounting civilian casualties, saying, “Let me just tell you, if New Jersey were 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.”

Raising her voice, Rivers said, “Don’t put your God damn things in private homes, don’t put your weapon stashes in private homes.” 

Blasting the one-sided media coverage, Rivers said, “BBC should be ashamed of themselves, and CNN should be ashamed of themselves, and everybody stop it already!” 

Rivers then took a final shot at actress Selena Gomez’s “Pray for Gaza” Instagram post last week, saying, “Oh, Selena Gomez, yeah, that college grad. Well if Selena said that… let’s see if she can spell Palestinian.”
