Joan Rivers

GOES OFF on Epic

Israel/Palestine Rant

7/25/2014 5:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

072514_joan_rivers_launchJoan Rivers jettisoned comedy for politics ... unleashing an impassioned defense of Israel that included an awesome New York/New Jersey analogy. 

Rivers was at LAX Thursday afternoon when our photog mentioned Israel and Palestine ... and that's all she wrote.  

You gotta see it. It comes from the heart and the gut.

As for Selena's tweet praying for Gaza ... well, see Joan attack.

Joshua 1:1-6 Joan is absolutely 100% correct. Obummer, BBC, CNN, MSNBC are afraid of the immigrant Muslim community. What happened to the pride we had in the USA?

Winston Churchill:

"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome."

Well... Joan Rivers is a Jew so we all Know what her intake looks like: bigoted, blatend islamophobic, prejudice, racist ****! And TMZ ain't no better for reporting this kind of instigating hatred! We all KNOW Jews hate Arabs and muslims. And how classic of TMZ to ask Joan Rivers this kind of stuff, like you couldn't pick a more racist old Jewish maggot! The media in America is controlled by 100% Jews, so all of this is expected! Harvey Levin is a poor excuse for a human being for this, like how dare you, you should be ashamed for this! OOOH IT'S ALWAYS ABOUT ISRAEL, ISRAEL AND ISRAEL, but somehow you purposely seem to forget about GAZA AND PALESTINE! I REBUKE YOU! JUST BECAUSE A BUNCH OF RADICAL TERRORISTS TARGET ISRAEL, DOESN'T MAKE IT SEEM OKE FOR POOR INNOCENT PEOPLE TO SUFFER TRUE IT! AND ISRAEL IS THE CAUSE OF ALL THAT! But on the positive note god always stands on the right side! And not on the negative side, witch in this case it's HAMAS AND THE ISRAELI MILITARY! SO DEAL WITH IT! America will be always anti muslims! And that is wrong! AND MIS JOAN RIVERS WILL DIE SOON WE HOPE AND PRAY! WE DON'T NEED THOSE KIND OF PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD! THIS WORLD IS ****ED UP AS IT IS!

Joan is right. It is wrong for news media to report biased news and I believe that is what is being done , and it is influencing the opinions of those that do not know the facts.

You're a piece of work, Joan Rivers. You're a disgusting fur hag and now a supporter of baby killers. Didn't driving your husband to commit suicide make you realize just how vile you are?

War is never the answer, it will only lead to more anger and revenge resulting in the loss of innocents. Those countries are damned by their own people...

Try staying in Gaza for a month then report back to us. Gaza is treated like Warsaw. Watch the movie "Exodus" Sal Mineo sets off a bomb that kills 300 English soldiers. Guess Ari was the hero in the movie .
