Watch Bill Maher defend Israel! Palestine-supporting celebs "would run screaming to Tel Aviv if they had to live in Gaza for one day" 😮

May 30th

It's Bill Maher so, you know, language warning:

"This is another thing I've heard last couple of weeks, words like ‘occupiers' and ‘colonizers' and 'apartheid,' which I don't think people understand the history there," Maher said. "The Jews have been in that area of the world since about 1,200 BC, way before the first Muslim or Arab walked the earth, 1,000 years before. I mean, Jerusalem is their capital. Okay, so if it's just about who got there first, it's not even close. There have been a continuous Jewish presence."

"The Jews were the ones who were occupied by everybody. The Romans took over at some point, and then the Persians and the Byzantines and then the Ottomans. So yes, there was colonization going on there. Beginning in the 20th, 19th century, they started to return to Palestine, which was never an Arab country. There was never a country called ‘Palestine' that was a distinct Arab country."

"And, you know, as far as Gaza goes, it's amazing to me that the progressives think that they're being progressive, by taking that side of it, the Bella Hadid's of the world, these influencers. I just want to say, in February of this year, a Hamas court ruled that an unmarried woman cannot travel in Gaza without the permission of a male guardian. Really? That's where the progressives are? Bella Hadid and her friends would run screaming to Tel Aviv, if they had to live in Gaza for one day."
