Howard Stern Gives Impassioned Defense of Israel

Howard Stern Gives Impassioned Defense of Israel

"If you’re anti-Israel, then you’re anti-America. It’s the only democracy over there, it’s the only friend we have who’s willing to fight and stand up for what’s right."

2K

When a caller attempted to blame Israel for the war with Hamas last week, SiriusXM radio host Howard Stern told him to “F*** off!” and then launched into an impassioned defense of Israel, saying “If you’re anti-Israel, then you’re anti-America” and arguing that Israel is “the only friend we have who’s willing to fight and stand up for what’s right.”   

The tense exchange began when the caller predicted that Stern would turn his back on Israel when Comedy Central host John Oliver was in the studio.

Stern: I’m not gonna change my tune. Israel’s at no fault.

Caller: Israel’s is at fault, actually.

Stern: F*** off! 

The caller then claimed that “Zionists run Israel,” at which point Stern cut him off:

Stern:  Oh, f*** off... I don’t want to listen to any anti-Semitism today. Jews get enough s**t all over the world. They get s**t on all the time. Jews are the indigenous people of that area. I’m sick of the bulls**t. And the Arabs don’t even want those Palestinians, otherwise they’d let them matriculate into their country. 

Stern eventually ended the call, saying, “you sicken me,” but added that being anti-Israel worked against the interests of America:

Stern: If you’re anti-Israel, then you’re anti-America. It’s the only democracy over there, it’s the only friend we have who’s willing to fight and stand up for what’s right.

After admitting that he lost his cool and let the caller “get under my skin,” he said he’s tired of reading “this bulls**t,” citing Pink Floyd’s anti-Israel Roger Waters, who he said “ought to shut his mouth too.” Stern then said that the problem was people were forgetting the history of Israel:

Stern: People forget history. Jews were being executed and killed, and they went over to Israel, this little sh*thole, which was a desert—it had nothing going on.  

Stern compared the drastic difference of the median income of Israelis, $30 thousand, and Palestinians, $2 thousand, as an example of the success of Israel despite living in the same region. He then pointed to the Palestinians' real problem: "They elected terrorists to run their country." 

Stern: But the Palestinians are mad at the Israelis, instead of being mad at the f***ing terrorists running their so-called country—who are raping the country, taking all the aide the United States actually gives to them. That they’re not angry with; they’re angry with Israel. [...] They elected terrorists to run their country. That’s the difference. Who do you support? Get off your f***ing high horse.

Quoting PinkButterfly66:

Except, that 'little shithole' already belonged to somebody.  And rather than being good neighbors, Israel is a bully and won't be content until Palestine no longer exists.  

Hamas are a bunch of blood thirsty terrorists. One of the initial signs of the last days are the Jews returning to their homeland. If Hamas surrendered their weapons there would be peace. If Israel surrendered their weapons, they would cease to exist.

Still not a Stern fan although I stomach him on Americas Got Talent. But kudos to him for saying something that many in his similar situations wouldn't dare to mutter.

I thought you guys didn't like celebrities when they speak out on political matters? You tell them to stick to their acting or singing, whatever, and shut up. You don't want to hear anything from them.

Oh, it is only when they say something you agree with that you like them and listen to them . Great.

hypocrites.

Yes because Stern has great morals...

HAHAHAHAHA!!!

Also, being anti-Zionism does not make one anti-Semitic.

He is incorrect on a number of his claims.

I question the integrity of those who take Howard Stern's words as something good.

"I promise not to maim you too much,
I just want to hear you screaming my name....in pain or what not, doesn't matter to me."

So killing innocent children, women and babies are okay? I hope you don't have children because you sound like a heartless woman. I don't stand with anyone who kills children!! Ever. And anyone who does only confirms that humanity is disappearing from society. So sick and sad that people in America would actually think Israel is doing right!
