Emmy-award winning comedienne Roseanne Barr, herself of Jewish ancestry, has nonetheless blasted Israel for its recent attacks on Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip, calling Israel a “Nazi state” bent on torturing “the Jewish soul.”
“The destruction of the Jews in Israel has been assured with this inhuman attack on civilians in Gaza,” Barr writes on her blog. “Exactly as its Nazi mentors did to the Jews of Warsaw, Israel now bombs innocent civilians who have been imprisoned in concentration camps in Gaza!”
She continues, “The Zionists look German! The Palestinians look like the Jews of Poland! The Jewish people have destroyed themselves in Gaza.”
Her venom over the attacks, however, has not been reserved only for the Israeli state, but stings American Christians, too.
Her blog posts a picture of a bloodied and bandaged boy reportedly wounded in the recent days’ airstrikes with the caption, “This is what the pro-life, right wing, neo con, evangelical, Zionist, Bible-banging Americans really mean when they say: ‘America is a Christian nation,’ or when they say: ‘Israel must defend itself,’ or when they say: ‘The Bible is the Word of God.'”
Raised in a family of both Jewish and Mormon faiths, Barr now claims on her website, “I am a kabbalist, as was Jesus Christ.”
As WND reported earlier, Barr has long blamed “Zionists” for tension and violence in the Middle East.
Two years ago, Barr explained, “The Arabs do not invade other countries. The Israelis do. I am sick of Israel and I am sick of Zionists. They are propped up by evangelical Christians who cannot wait for the Arabs to kill them so that their genocidal war god whom they misname Jesus can come back.”
Do you really want to understand the conflict in the Middle East? You have to listen to what the terrorists say behind closed doors. Only one man has been listening to them – Aaron Klein, WND’s Jerusalem bureau chief and author of “Schmoozing With Terrorists.” Get it now from the people who published it – WND Books.
In blog posts from the last week, Barr maintained her pattern of blaming Israeli nationalism for not only the Middle East’s troubles, but America’s as well.
Starting with Rahm Emmanuel, whom Barr labels a “brutal person who supports the liquidation of the Gaza Ghetto,” Barr declares, “Remove Israel’s influence from American government! Their occupation of and brutality against their neighbors is the real reason we were attacked on 9-11!”
Her blog further urges Americans to boycott cosmetics company L’Oreal for “financing the Nazi attack on the people of Gaza”; demands the U.N. divide Jerusalem into Jewish, Muslim, and Christian parts ruled by tribunal from all three religions; and pleads with Israeli soldiers to disobey orders and “refuse to be Nazis.”
