Joan Rivers

Palestinian Civilians 'Deserve to Be Dead'

... They Started It!

update_graphic_red_bar12:45 PM PT -- Joan says in a statement ... she was "totally taken out of context. What I said and stand behind is, war is hell and unfortunately civilians are victims of political conflicts. We, the United States, certainly know this as 69 years later we still feel the guilt of Hiroshima and Nagasaki."

She adds, "Along with every other sane person in this world, I am praying for peace."
Joan Rivers has zero sympathy for Palestinian civilians killed in the Gaza conflict because they had fair warning to get out, and didn't ... so they deserve to die.

Joan was at LAX yesterday when she doubled down on her now famous rant about Israel defending itself ... by screaming she doesn't want to hear about civilian casualties.

A sample of her rage: "They started it. We now don't count who's dead. You're dead, you deserve to be dead." 

You have to see the rest. You can't accuse Joan of not having an opinion.

Maybe Joan should look at the war images of the children whose heads have been blown off, limbs barely dangling from their lifeless bodies. Somehow I don't think those babies deserved that.

Yes They Did Start it. They have built Tunnels to sneak over and Bomb and destroy Isreal. Is Isreal suppose to just lay back and do Nothing? I Think NOT!

There is Something mentally wrong with that woman. Civilians never deserve to die, ever and Some people don't have the money to just get up and move or leave. They are stuck. She needs to shut her big fake mouth. Sick of seeing and hearing her.

Before anyone starts defending the Palestinians, get rid of Hamas and maybe things can get worked out. In Hama's charter they call for the extermination of ALL Jews. This is a stance that can not be negotiated. There is no middle ground. Hamas needs to be eliminated. The Palestinians have the ability to do so but will not act. Most Palestinians agree with Hamas. Hamas hides like rats among civilians and then cries fowl when civilians get killed. Israel and it's people have the right to live without worrying about a rocket landing on their heads. Only the ignorant are siding with the Palestinians and Hamas.

I am glad the world can see this.

Witness the Zionist mentality: a diseased, selfish, killing machine that's grown bloated on the decades of 'turn a blind eye' sanctioning from the rest of the world.

Joan Rivers makes the case for dementia. Uncouth and filthy rich, both Joan, her daughter, and everyone on her sad sack show are awful. These people shouldn't be rewarded for shameful behavior. I wish no one would renew Joan's terrible show. It amounts to legalized bullying. Likes Israel.

Why don't you leave this old ass lady alone? If it was your grandmother would you goat her like that?...YES you would, but it would be in a private setting and for the enjoyment of friends and family, not TENS OF THOUSANDS of people. She's a legend, and a grandmother, show her some respect.

So basically those innocent children who didn't choose their religion or their parents deserve to die? I don't agree with the muslim religion or islam but her opinion is hateful. If anyone said that about israel they would be accused of anti-semitism when the reality is, israel is not america so why should I care about thier issues? They can defend themselves, stop giving them billions of dollars and ignoring our soldiers and our poor.
