Watch: Bill Maher absolutely destroys the prevailing anti-Israel narrative, calling out the hypocrisy of Instagram celebs like Bella Hadid, “Bella Hadid and her friends would run screaming to Tel Aviv if they had to live in Gaza for one day.”
Has Bill missed the last 40 years of DNC Israel hatred?
every time the arabs go to war with the jews... they lose. What sort of moronic bunch just keeps doing what doesn’t work?
I am NOT jewish. I hate muslims trying to force me...
People like Obama, Kerry, Albright, Carter, Clinton, Europe, Scandinavia, Press, etc. always give them hope by wrapping it all up nicely calling it a Two-State solution.
This was offered in 1921, 1929, 1936-1939, 1946, 1947, 1993...and was ALWAYS REJECTED by the Arabs because they dream of military victory, not compromise.
A moronic bunch that allows incest. Arab countries allow incest.
If they can’t “push Israel into the sea”...then they’re quite happy using the PalestinianArabs to give Israel no peace.
That is an excellent refutation of her naïveté
Is bill maher a personality worth listening to? Weather vane opinions rendered. In this case, he plays the contrarian vs. the current assault against the Jewish state. Next week he will support something else. Controversy generates views/clicks.
At some time, in the distant future, when (most) of the Arabs pull their heads out from their rear ends, grow up, mature, figure things out then they might “compromise” with Israel. The word compromise does not exist in their minds because their heads are so far up there rectums that there is too much brown mater instead of Dura mater in the brain.
It is not Arabs, it is mooselimb terrorists.
If you believe that allah wants you to send your 6 year old kid as a bomb carrier into a town square, there is no solution other than my tag line.
Radical islam is a cancer and the carrier must to be destroyed.
Read the koran, and then tell me about how we can all,
True, Islam preaches SUBMISSION.
Maher is not only a nasty piece of work, he’s a malignant narcissist.
I’ll give credit where it is due Maher is right on a couple issues, most notably radical Islam.
“I’ll give credit where it is due Maher is right on a couple issues, most notably radical Islam.”
Exactly, of course.
...Hadid, whose dad is Palestinian, is among the most vocal pro-Palestinian voices ... Israel has accused the supermodel of anti-Semitism.
Bill Maher got into a fiery debate over the recent Israel-Gaza conflict on Friday night and took aim at the 'liberal media' over its news coverage before turning on progressives including supermodel Bella Hadid.
'One of the frustrations I had while I was off is that I was watching this war go on in Israel … and it was frustrating to me because there was no one on liberal media to defend Israel, really,' Maher, 65, began. He was referring to a recent COVID-19 diagnosis that forced him off the air last week.
'We've become this country now that we're kind of one-sided on this issue. And I'd also like to say off the bat I don't think kids understand, and when I say kids I mean the younger generations – you can't learn history from Instagram!' the 65-year-old Maher added. 'There's just not enough space.'

.... as New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof suggested Israel had committed 'possible war crimes' against Gaza.
'Well, Gaza fired 4,000 rockets into Israel. What would you say Israel should have done instead of what they did?' Maher asked.
'International lawyers are pretty clear that they have a right to defend themselves … but there is a sense that their response was probably a war crime because they did not sufficiently avoid civilian casualties,' Kristof explained.
'But they purposely put the rockets in civilian places. That's their strategy,' Maher responded.
Maher then went into a detailed explanation that countered a oft-repeated narrative that Israel 'stole' the land...
'The Jews have been in that area of the world since about 1200 B.C., way before the first Muslim or Arab walked the Earth. ... I mean, Jerusalem was their capital. So if it's who got there first, it's not even close,' Maher said.
'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 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.
'Doesn't it behoove the people who rejected the half a loaf and continue to attack … Hamas's charter says they just want to wipe out Israel. Their negotiation position is 'You all die,'' Maher said. 'The two-state solution has been on the table a number of times. There could be an Arab capital in East Jerusalem now if Yasser Arafat had accepted that in 2003. He did not...
The State of Israel's official Twitter account said Hadid was advocating for sending 'Jews into the sea'...
'I mean, they have rejected this and went to war time and time again,' Mayer continued, '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 Hadids of the world, these influencers.
'I just want to say in February of this year, a Hamas court ruled that a 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.'
Kristof once attempted to defend Hadid's position and said that he didn't 'perceive' her as defending Hamas but for Gazan children who were killed during the fighting.
But Maher referred the columnist to that slogan Hadid chanted while taking part in a pro-Palestine march in New York City earlier this month.
'From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.'
The phrase is normally associated with the wiping out of Israel.
Earlier in the week, Bella Hadid attended the same pro-Palestinian protest as the man arrested for allegedly beating a bystander in Times Square last week and calling him a 'filthy Jew' - and posted a picture of him on her Instagram....
In her post including a picture of Awawdeh .. Hadid wrote: 'The way my heart feels … To be around this many beautiful, smart, respectful, loving, kind and generous Palestinians all in one place... it feels whole! We are a rare breed!!'
Police say Awawdeh was among a gang of demonstrators who four days later punched a Jewish man to the pavement then pummeled him while he was down, yelling anti-Semitic epithets.
He is charged with assault as a hate crime, gang assault, menacing, aggravated harassment as a hate crime and criminal possession of a weapon.
Yep, Bill generally stays pretty consistent on his views and he’ll at least sometimes admit when he’s been wrong. For example, he’s admitted the whole Russiagate thing had no substance to it and that the reporting around it was very wrong.
A lot of his views are pretty left-wing, but he’s against cancel culture, mildly pro-gun (he’s at least anti-banning), calls out radical Islam for exactly what it is - including the double standard on the left where every micro-aggression is a capital offense in the US but enslaving women as property in Saudi Arabia is fine because it’s their “culture”, and a number of other things.
I watch his show on HBO because there’s some interesting political discussion that happens between the jokes and it’s often not just a left-wing echo chamber. The most annoying parts are the anti-Trump bits, but those are much fewer and further between than they used to be.
It’s far worse than that! When the muslim brotherhood took over egypt they soon changed 2 things to their “constitution”... 1st... they legalized slavery. 2nd... they legalized a man having sex with his dead wife a certain number of hours after her death. This was because their “so-called” “prophet” dove into a grave and screwed a dead womans body. Don’t get me started on the whole pedophile aspect of these people. They IDOLIZE a scumbag who screwed little girls! What a Guy! These are truly screwed up people.
