Joan Rivers Defends Israel, Disses Selena Gomez in EPIC Rant!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

While most 81-year-old celebrities are retiring from public life or riding out the final years of their careers while carefully avoiding controversies that might tarnish their legacy, Joan Rivers has been ruffling more feathers than ever lately, and whether you love or hate her, you've gotta admit it's been entertaining.

Joan's recent tirades are too numerous to list here, but highlights include Rivers accusing Miley Cyrus of incest, and suggesting that Kim Kardashian has slept with millions of men.

But while she's consistently raised the bar for shocking rants throughout her career, Rivers may have outdone herself at LAX today when she stopped making fun of celebrities and started getting serious about the bloody conflict between Israelis and Palestinians:

The video above features Joan providing her unabashed two cents on the topic, and if you've tweeted #FreePalestine recently, you may want skip the clip so as to avoid smashing your laptop in a fit of rage.

"If New Jersey were firing rockets into New York, we would wipe them out," Rivers said, in reference to Hamas rocket attacks against Israel. "Palestinians, you cannot throw rockets and expect people not to defend themselves."

She goes on like that (the video really has to be seen to be believed), passionately defending Israel and coming off as oddly blasé about the many civilian casualties in Gaza.

If it all sounds like a bit too much reality for a Friday afternoon, we recommend skipping to the 1:23 mark to see Joan doing what she does best: eviscerating young starlets!

Told that Selena Gomez had posted pro-Palestinian messages on her Instagram page, Joan responded as only she can:

"Oh Selena Gomez! That college grad! Let's see if she can spell 'Palestinian!'"

Still nicer than Rivers' Kristen Stewart comments.

It's interesting to see the true colors of "educated, open minded, humanitarian" people when it matters most. Jews and non Jews alike should be supporting Israel. Because they are fighting terrorism. Not Palestinians. Terrorism. Do you see the difference. The USA recognizes Hamas as a terrorist organization. By supporting Hamas, you in turn are supporting terrorism. Which btw all Americans are, thanks to our government who is giving MILLIONS of our hard earned tax paying dollars to terrorists. Hamas isn't using this money on civilians. They did not build hospitals, schools, or any other functioning buildings used and needed in a civilized society. They took that money, OUR money and stole it. They starved their own children, deprived them of much needed medical care and used it to build tunnels. Now these tunnels are not delivering breakfast in bed to Israelis. These tunnels are being used to slaughter and massacre hundreds if not thousands of Israelis. Can you imagine if all that time and effort went into building universities?????? Ps 160 children were killed during the building of these tunnels. Where is your outcry? Israel is not only defending itself which any sane democracy would and should do, it's defending YOU. ME, US. You would be even more foolish than I presume you to be if you for one split second think Hamas isn't coming after you too. Here. In the USA. Or wherever you are. They want to dominate the world. They don't want a two state solution. They don't want peace. They want war. They live for death. Do you understand that logic? I don't. Let's not forget 9/11 and the 3000 + Americans killed. Let's not forget the dancing and celebrating in the streets by terrorists and even some Palestinians. You should all be supporting Israel and thanking her for saving and securing your butts sitting here. But if you're not going to do that, at least back off and let Israel do what it's supposed to do. Israel has tried and continues to try in every way possible to prevent civilian casualties. They send warnings. They beg women, children to leave their "home" (bomb ridden booby trapped "homes") prior to demolishing anything. Hamas in turn tells its civilians to stay put. It's called a human shield. It's also called a cowardly animal. The death toll you see in Gaza (I'm not blind, and yes perhaps the IDF has made some MISTAKES, not intentionally kidnapping, murdering, innocent civilians as Hamas does) is all thanx to their very own "government" Hamas. Have u seen a bomb shelter in Gaza? Have u seen any safe place for children to be placed? And don't you even dare go on a rampage of UN schools that housed missiles and launchers which the UN gave back to Hamas. It's fair to say that if you don't support Israel, you don't support America. Because Israel is the only democratic country in the Middle East. Where women are serving in the military, and gays aren't hanged, and Arabs can serve in the israeli parliament and when you are anti Israel it's definitely safe to say you're anti Jews. So congratulations on being a racist anti Semite. So much for your "tolerance and want for peace and human rights" blah blah blah ummm has anyone checked out what's going on in Syria? 700 people killed in ONE week. Purely for ethnic cleansing purposes. Christians being crucified for not being Muslim. Again.... They're coming after you too. So don't be so open minded that your brain and all it's contents fall out with it... Wake up. Support Israel because it's fighting terrorism and saving YOU!

Joan rivers has a point. If the US was being bombed it would have no choice but to retaliate. The casualties in Gaza are exactly what Hamas wants in order to garner sympathy. Israel is finding weapons in schools and hospitals and they urge Palestinians to leave before every bombing. Who's fault is it that they are not leaving and dying as a result? It is what they want or else they would evacuate.

EvACUATE???!! To where?? You seriously need to see a map. Have you seen Gaza???? It's blocked from all sides. It is like a giant prison. They have nowhere to go. "They urge palestinians to leave before every bombing" !!!! Really?? Leave where. Isalis do that to make fun of them. And for joan comapring palestine to new jersey is the most stupid comparision i've ever heard. You idiots israel stole palestenians lands and pushed them to gaza and blocked them. Hamas spokeman said that they know that the rockets they fire won't kill innocet israelli people. Israelis have technology and shelters. You can not compare them gazans who has never seen nothing else than gaza.

To the "guest" above me: Just like everyone else, you've given into the hype. Take your idiocy somewhere else and stop believing everything the media tells you.
