Adam Sandler just took a huge stand against President Obama’s anti-Israel policies. The 49-year-old screen legend made some peers fume when he said he’s “disgusted” by celebrities who refuse to tour Israel.
Although our own “President” Barack Obama has shunned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and failed to adequately support the Jewish state, Adam Sandler wasn’t afraid to stand up for Israel. During an interview with Howard Stern, Sandler had some choice words for anti-Israel advocates which he expressed with personal conviction and a few f-bombs.
According to the Jewish Journal, Sandler let Howard Stern know his thoughts on Israel, stating that he is “very pro-Israel” and “disgusted they (liberal celebrities) single out Israel.”
He was ecstatic about Stern’s willingness to call out the Hollywood elites; in this case, Roger Waters, the former Pink Floyd front-man. Sandler told Stern:
“When you go off on Roger Waters, I f***ing love that you do that.”
“All those nice Israeli people are getting a ‘f*** you’ from Roger Waters,” Sandler said. “I’m not crazy religious, but I’m proud of being a Jew, and that’s what I am.”
He went on to say, “I get that from my father and mother. I’m very pro-Israel and when someone says s*** about Israel, and I know people say s*** about Israel and they f***ing won’t play there … and when you go off on Roger Waters. I love it you do that. I’m disgusted that they single out Israel that they say, ‘We can’t play Israel.’” Sandler said before commending Stern for calling out Waters for being a bigot.
“I’m disgusted by celebrities who smack of being anti-Semitic” he told Howard Stern. Referring again to Pink Floyd’s, Roger Waters who is also being challenged for his support of the Boycott, Divest, and the Sanction Israel movement.
Howard Stern has doubled up on his support for Israel even though he says it isn’t fashionable. Stern’s comment was in response to Waters calling him an “a**hole” in a Rolling Stone interview. Prior to Waters’ comment, Stern had accused him of anti-Semitism.
