For one of the more stupid American’s to call Palestinians “STUPID” is both cowardly as it is nasty. The Irony is, when this horrible little old lady comes to the UK, she never spouts these views, had she done so she would have been booed out the building. I can’t get the irony with these really pathetic, sick, stupid, backwards Americans who say “Palestinians should be dead” and are “Stupid for not moving” MOVE TO WHERE? This is A-Typical American stupidity. She really is a very uneducated stupid old woman, her remarks are just awful. The woman’s IQ is about the same as a frogs, it’s people like her that make people who don’t know better to judge a people by the remarks of the famous. Over here in Europe most famous people have said “Free Palestine” You won’t get ANYONE in the UK say this on TV. Just wouldn’t happen. What a sad, stupid old fool. The girl in the background was given her a look. Joan then went on to say “They don’t even have pencils” I am lost to you America. Truly I am.
Joan Rivers is known for her scathing sharp tongue, and yet her take on the Isaeli-Gaza crisis is one of her most controversial views to date. When told by a TMZ reporter than almost 2,000 Palestinians have been killed in the conflict, she raised her hands in mock shock. “Oh my God! Tell that to the people in Hiroshima,” she says on film. “Good. Good. When you declare war, you declare war. They started it. We now don’t count who’s dead. You’re dead, you deserve to be dead. Don’t you dare make me feel bad about that.” “They were told to get out. They didn’t get out. You don’t get out, you are an idiot. At least the ones that were killed were the ones with low IQs.” She went onto describe Gaza’s Hamas government as “terrorists”.
The comedian – who has defended Israel previously – has since claimed her opinions were taken out of context (although they were made on film), publishing a statement on her official Facebook page, in which she says she is “praying for peace”. “I am both saddened and disappointed that my statement about the tragedy of civilian casualties was totally taken out of context,” she wrote.
