Jackie Mason Goes Off on Anti-Israel Celebrities

Paul Bond, The Hollywood Reporter, 07/31/2014

"They come from these kinds of anti-Semitic backgrounds where a Jew is the most disgusting thing in the world to them," the comedian says when asked about recent comments made by Penelope Cruz, Rihanna and Selena Gomez.

Jackie Mason, who spent three years as an ordained rabbi before launching his six-decade career as a comedian, will claim during a radio show to air Sunday that Hollywood is run by Jews but is nevertheless "anti-Semitic," "ignorant" and "stupid" when it comes to issues involving Israel.

Mason is a regular guest on Aaron Klein Investigative Radio on Salem Radio's AM 970 The Answer in New York. Host Aaron Klein describes himself politically as an "independent" while Mason has been an outspoken conservative of late. Klein is an American operating from Tel Aviv and his is often considered the only major U.S. radio talk show broadcast from the Middle East. Both he and Mason are staunch supporters of Israel.

In a pre-recorded segment, Klein in Israel asks the 83-year-old entertainer from his home in New York to comment on "Hollywood geniuses" like Selena Gomez, Penelope Cruz and Rihanna, who have criticized Israel for its response to Hamas in an ongoing conflict in Gaza.

"They come from these kinds of anti-Semitic, low-class backgrounds where a Jew is the most disgusting thing in the world to them," Mason answers, according to audio obtained by The Hollywood Reporter. "The ironic thing is that it's Jewish people who own these Hollywood studios … And they all hire these people and they depend on them for a living. Every penny they made is made from Jews and they hate every Jew just by nature."

Though Mason seems to go off on celebrities and Hollywood in general, Klein's question was specifically based on comments recently made by Rihanna, Gomez and especially Cruz, who signed with other Spanish film stars an open letter denouncing Israel for engaging in "genocide."

Gomez, on the other hand, merely tweeted and posted on her Instagram the sentiment, "It's about humanity. Pray for Gaza," then followed up by clarifying that she wasn't taking sides. Rihanna tweeted #FreePalestine, then deleted it eight minutes later after it had been re-tweeted about 7,000 times.

"Talk to an actor about anything that happened 10 minutes ago, they never heard about it. They don't watch television unless it's about themselves," Mason says during the radio show, which will air in New York on Sunday at 7 p.m. on AM 970 The Answer.

"They don't have a conversation unless it's about their next picture," Mason says. "If you say to them, 'There is a war going on,' they probably never heard about it … They don't even know missiles have been raining on Israel every day for no reason anyone can think of … what's happening to Jews, they deserve it. That's all they know."

Klein's show often focuses on Muslim extremism, and he has even interviewed some known terrorists. He's a frequent critic of President Barack Obama's Middle East policies and is a New York Times best-selling author and writes for World Net Daily. His books include, Schmoozing With Terrorists: From Hollywood to the Holy Land, Jihadists Reveal Their Global Plans — to a Jew!

Daily Ruckus • What do Penelope Cruz, Rihanna and Selena Gomez have in common? They are supporters of the imposter in the White House. They all are bunch of Jew hating garbage! I hope this motivates Israel to crush Hamas once and for all.

Terri O'Rourke • In this life it is not difficult to distinguish who is informed and who repeats what they hear. The informed can back up their opinion with facts and anecdotals while the others get emotional, or angry, or immediately change the subject.

Edward Selego • there is no "anti-semetic background" that this old man talks about. The world that all the people he accuses grew up in was dominated by jewish pro zionist media. Thanks to the internet and social media we are begging to see the world there some what of an objective lens. Lets start to meditate on whats best for the human race and not just one specific ethnicity.

BillyBoy80 • Israel is a fascist state but that doesn't stop people from supporting them from afar. A lot of Amerikkkans were perfectly happy supporting Nazi Germany too. Turns out they were on the wrong side of history. They will be again.

farm kid • my thoughts are the jews in Israel should have right to live in peace. having said that the "American jew" are the people that put "big ears" in the white house. how is that working out for you jews. what I do not understand is that the U.S.A. welcomed those jews when other counties were persecuting them, then they pull an Alinsky on us. is this the thankyou for saving them.

HarryBawlz • I doubt that anybody rises in Hollywood without vowing a certain amount of support for looney progressive causes. It's probably written right in their contracts to condemn Israel, support "gay rights", etc..

Warmac9999 • These relatively young stars are products of the emotional, fact deprived leftist education system. They find it much easier to spout social justice nonsense than actually use facts and logic. I would suggest they start by reading the 5000 year leap or America by D'Souza.

CELT1 • Those who turn their backs on Israel are turning their faces towards evil. Hamas is on a level of evil equivalent to or greater than Hitler. They must be defeated. Anyone who cannot see that is a fool.

Mike Lee • There is a massive difference between an Israeli and a Jew. If you have ever lived in Israel you would know this. When Russia let all the "Jews" go to immigrate to Israel, they hated it. No FREE food, No FREE anything and they were expected to work like every Israeli. There are Jews all around the world but the are NOT Israelis and the sooner you learn that the more clearly you will see what is going on in Gaza.

Call me TC • Mike Lee, So why did they all leave Russia? The weather?

BadWhisky • TO WHOM DOES THE LAND OF ISRAEL BELONG?? An Israeli Sense of Humor at United Nations set the record straight. An ingenious example of speech and politics occurred recently in the United Nations Assembly and made the world community smile. A representative from Israel began: 'Before beginning my talk I want to tell you something about Moses: When he struck the rock and it brought forth water, he thought, "What a good opportunity to have a bath!" Moses removed his clothes, put them aside on the rock and entered the water. When he got out and wanted to dress, his clothes had vanished. A Palestinian had stolen them! The Palestinian representative at the UN jumped up furiously and shouted, "What are you talking about? The Palestinians weren't there then." The Israeli representative smiled and said, "And now that we have made that clear, I will begin my speech."

Hank • BadWhisky, Outstanding! But I would bet the Palestinian representative missed the point....

The_Toxic_Avenger • BadWhisky, Excellent. Cheers Whisky.

paisa71 • If you lived in an internment camp carved out of a tiny strip of land where the original population of 600,000 was augmented by 1.2 million refugees that were pushed out of their homes and land, lived under military occupation for 50 out of the last 60 years, lived under an economic embargo for the last 10 years that goes as far as limiting the number of calories that are allowed in, weren't allowed to go into the Med to fish, were 1 million (55% of the population) is dependent on UNRWA food aid, had your offshore energy deposits stolen, seen children shot for throwing rocks at tanks and had no hope of you, your children or your children's children would be anything other than a refugee with no rights, then you too might find yourself digging tunnels and making rockets in your basement. Half the population of Gaza is children under 14 years of age. It's easy to say "they are terrorists" so that you can wash your hands of the heinousness of the truth, the fact that you are bombing children while carrying out collective punishment and lebensraum, both of which are war crimes. At least this time, unlike all previous times, Israel does not appear to be using white phosphorus against the civilian population. So kind of them not to burn children alive this time around. Oh, and the Israelis that gathered in Jerusalem two nights ago, who gleefully chanted "there's no school tomorrow, there's no children left"as they danced in celebration, y'all deserve the most heinous and cruel of fates to befall on you. There was a time that we called people that fought against oppression "freedom fighters." Just because it's the Israelis the ones that are doing the oppressing, it does not mean the people of Gaza are terrorists.

JT Streeter • paisa71, They can always go back to Jordan where they belong. There is no such race as Palestinians. Palestine is the name given to Israel by the Romans to insult the Jews. Muslim nations don't want the ignorant dirt bags of Gaza back they prefer to use them as a tool against Israel same as the International left does. Not just national socialists hate the Jews, all socialists hate the Jews. My advice to those Jordanian mudslimes is that if you don't want none don't start none. That goes for all of islamo-nazis and their apologists on the left

paisa71 • JT Streeter, You are a dolt. National Socialism is the name of the German fascists. Fascism is a far-right ideology. Socialism is a left-of-center ideology, not as extreme as the far-left communists. Some of the most influential of the socialists and communists were themselves Jews. Israel itself was built on the kibbutz system, which is a communist communal system. Perhaps you should google the characteristics of fascism. Does it surprise you that it reads like a conservative statement of values?

The_Toxic_Avenger • paisa71, The Nazi's were proponents of a socialistic political doctrine..No getting around that basic fact.

paisa71 • The_Toxic_Avenger, Just because the Nazis used the word "socialist" in their title, it doesn't mean they were real socialists. Do you think that the German Democratic Republic or the Democratic People's Republic of Korea were or are democracies because the word is in their name? Before the Nazis went after the Jews, they first went after the Communists and the Socialists. Did you google the characteristics of fascism?

The_Toxic_Avenger • paisa71, Nope. The Nazi's followed a socialist philosophy. Government ownership of industry. Huge government involvement in just about every aspect of day to day life..Socialism 101

paisa71 • The_Toxic_Avenger, I see that you refuse to learn what fascism really is so that you can maintain your ill-informed and propaganda-fed worldview.

The_Toxic_Avenger • paisa71, The Italian government led by Mussolini was Fascist. The Nazi's led by Hitler were Socialists..Even the Nazi's claimed they were socialists..Henry Ford was a huge proponent of Socialism and he thought the Nazi's had it right. He was a big fan.

paisa71 • The_Toxic_Avenger, The German fascists called themselves National Socialists but they were not real leftist socialists. They did this as a political ploy to get popular support to get power. Once there they still gave some lip service to "socialist" ideas but that was propaganda to keep leftist leaning Germans in the fold of the party. The agenda that they actually implemented and by which they should be judged was far from socialist. Dude, just look up the characteristics of fascism.

The_Toxic_Avenger • paisa71, You don't get to rewrite history. . [Only The Kike does in this Kike's world.] The Nazi's were Socialists. . Give it up already.

MJ • Jackie Mason is oh so correct. Furthermore, these Hollywood "Stars" are just pieces of trash anyway. They live their lives outside a moral structure of any kind.

matt crawford • MJ, exactly correct look at how they have nothing but praise for [the KIKE] Roman Polanski ,who drugged and raped a 13year old girl

Robert Morris • As Derzhavin noted, the Jews are nothing more than a band of clever robbers.

matt crawford • let the jewish state flatten gaza,problem solved

Robert Morris • The primary personality trait of the Jew seems to be that of a visceral hatred for Christians and Christianity.

Robert Morris • Keep in mind, regarding the recent Hobby Lobby SCOTUS decision - all three of the Jews on the Supreme Court attempted to deny religious liberty to Christians.

Robert Morris • As Maurice Samuel noted in "You Gentiles", Jews are destroyers who will remain destroyers forever.

Robert Morris • If Lois Lerner and Gyorgy Schwartz ["Soros"] aren't enough to open your eyes to the fact that the Jews are a hostile foreign tribe, you're likely to remain blind forever.

matt crawford • that is why the people who are paying attention could give a rats arse what the Hollywood filth think or say

matt crawford • islam is a death cult,and has been from the start

NotInMyLifetime • The Jew thinks he can breed out antisemitism in Europe by importing 3rd world ppl into the continent. They don't realize they are importing MORE antisemitism; on a concentrated level. \Europe was working its way through the holocaust and trying to make amends for antisemitism. "Multiculturalism", propagated by the Jew in Europe, has re-hydrated the hatred towards Jews by way of Muslim/African/Arab mentality flooding Europe. An absolute miscalculation on their part. BTW, I support Israel 100%.

Russell Jones • Jackie Mason is absolutely correct. He might also add that besides the Hollywood Jew haters he mentions, the Jews in Hollywood (as do most nationwide) tend to vote Democrat/Leftist and for Obama. Go figure?

Yu So Wong • Yeah, like Selena Gomez knows anything about missile attacks except the ones she suffered from the Justin Bieber.

MudFlapShoes • when you do all the math and suspend all disbelief there is nothing more funny than a satanist.

Tinderbox • Where were these celebrities when Hamas was raining rockets down on Israel for years on end?

Nathan Bedford Forrest • Everybody should back off, shut up and let Israel kill Palestinians until there are none.

The_Toxic_Avenger • Nathan Bedford Forrest, I'll bring the popcorn.

The_Toxic_Avenger • Israel should just go ahead and fumigate the entire Gaza strip.

weary_of_the_lies • it has only taken 80 years for history to start repeating itself. our country, the Soetoro administration, is making a huge mistake to turn its back on Israel. remember that Roosevelt ordered a ship load of Jews turned back from the United States only to be placed in the hands of the Nazi's. look where they placed the country of Israel, right smack in the middle of the heathens. surprised that they, the Jews, have lasted this long with the odds stacked enormously against them. long live the state of Israel and their people. as for the Jewish people, they need to wake up and determine who their "friends" are. it is certainly not the left. signed, a Christian

SantaFeSteve • Israel's survival is not at the top of Obama's priority list so American Jews voting Democratic is a lot like those Jews who helped keep the crematoriums neat. I am sure they also felt they were doing the right thing. It is a sad situation in the Middle East but it is one of those situations unfortunately where only one side can end up still standing.

grasshopperjct • All I have to say is GOD BLESS "JACKIE MASON". He sees the problem with Hollywood and the sorry people who make obscene amounts of money and are constantly awarding each other for just doing their jobs. (academy awards, Emmy's, golden globe, and on and on). The majority of these Hollywood mutts should be ashamed of themselves they are nothing but a bunch of greedy sorry clowns and then they bite the hand that feeds them ( the hand being the ASSmerican public).

Christine Golden • To paraphrase Mark Twain, "better to keep your mouth shut and be thought an anti-semitic bigot than to open it and remove all doubt."

NJ Conservative • The biggest threat to the future of the US is not Radical Islam, it is not China, it is not Russia. No, the biggest threat is Liberalism. Unless we find a way to squash the Liberal disease in this country we will no longer exist as a nation. I really never thought it could happen but it is happening and if something doesn't change soon we will no longer have a USA.

hollander • I am 58 years old, a Vietnam era vet, and have never understood hatred of the Jews. I guess I don't understand hate.

Nathan Bedford Forrest • hollander, You don't understand liberals. Which is the same thing.

The_Toxic_Avenger • If the Muslims eventually win, we won't hear anything more from Penelope Cruz, Rihanna, and Selena Gomez. Just a thought.

Barbfears • The_Toxic_Avenger, These "kids" have no clue what is in store for the world if the muslims win. Gays and women will be treated with stones, death and slavery.

The_Toxic_Avenger • Barbfears, It would be kind of ironic. Those condemning Israel the loudest would be the ones to suffer the most should Israel lose.

Sloppyjustins • What a stupid comment by Gomez. I would only plow her half as hard now.

The_Toxic_Avenger • I was going to f her brains out but apparently somebody beat me to it/

The_Toxic_Avenger • Depending on the part you play in it, torture can be fun.

The_Toxic_Avenger • I read a history book and I learned that there never was a Palestine nor a Palestinian people.

Joe blow • Mason brags about the fact that Jews own show business, including Hollywood. Any gentile--like Gary Oldman or Marlon Brando--whos says the same--obviously true--thing, would have to retract, grovel, and aponogize over and over. I don't feel very good about it, but the older I get, the more I hate these people.

JuzziMaeBeRizhi • Are people still falling for this crap? Since when are jews the allies of anyone? I'm American. I'm white. I don't support israel or hamas. Neither are my concern. You pathetic monkeys need to fight your own war and stop using the wealth of white industrious countries.

J_Biggs • JuzziMaeBeRizhi, I am an American, white, and a marine veteran. I would fight for Israel long before I would fight to defend you. No, I am not Jewish. I am German-Irish.

Nathan Bedford Forrest • J_Biggs, I'm a German-Irish veteran too. I'll join you.

Navyvetew1 • Bravo Zulu, Biggs

The_Toxic_Avenger • J-Biggs, I would have your back.

PrivacyInA9M80 • The amount of antisemitism on this message board is astounding.

Wego Axleguard • I support Israel and trust this time they eradicate the HAMAS. But, on point with this article and the Jews owning Hollywood. The Jews brought to main stream movies, books, songs and television, sex, drugs, gays, many things that most people AROUND the world find disgusting and vile. For what? Morality? Money! Always money.

Navyvetew1 • Its nothing to do with Jews, rather it is part of the liberal agenda.

HeyBaccala • CNN banned me for my Pro Israel stance

MefMaf • mexicans and blacks follow the script from the jew's playbook. they commit crimes and call you racist for pointing it out.

jiggabubro • Really who gives a fu ck about Israel, Middle East or any other nation. I mean really idiots. How about worrying about the southern invasion going on that is literally hitting home now with drug cartels and a sheeeeity administrations. Fu ck off with these Jew issues overseas. If Israel is so tough let them defend themselves but to cause genocide on innocent civilians just calls for retaliation from the Palestinians. What Israel has done to Palestinians is what Obama is doing to this nation. WORRY ABOUT FIGHTING FOR AMERICA!!!!!!

hun555 • the problem with your view is that this little country of 8 million could get us into deep fight for America...America first has to decide about the future of this tiny country...because they do not seem to be able...but yes America First...

RufusChoate jiggabubro •
It is the same enemy and if you don't understand that then we are already lost. Islam is the ally and best friend of the Left and the Left are our enemies.

X2314 • Hope Israel puts these animals down once and for all.

PrivacyInA9M80 • The only people the Spanish (to clarify, people from Spain) hate more than Jews are Africans.

X • Ignore the body count. Nothing is happening there.

fcabanski • I love Jackie. He's spot on in his analysis.

DoubleStandardsAhoy • If you are willing to overlook the fact that his positions are based on false assertions and projected from an ivory tower, sure. I'm not a fan of any of the celebrities whom he has a political disagreement with but to proclaim "They come from these kinds of anti-Semitic, low-class backgrounds where a Jew is the most disgusting thing in the world to them", is a fairly unreasonable statement. Pardon my skepticism but can he provide one shred of proof that Jews are the most disgusting thing in the world to the people in question? Or is he simply adopting the tactic used by a certain European National Socialist movement in the 30s and 40s which sought to dehumanize those who had a different opinion.

hun555 • of course...just and old well used do not like some of the Zionist are an did not agree with the were mentally pointed out the truth...they dug up something to make you look evil or a joke...nothing new...just a recycled bag of old tricks..

stargazeman • These HOllywood Jews are Liberals first---Jewish, second or third....its shows in their recent display about Israel...kind of like Pelosi saying Hammas is a humanitarian Group---we're kinda doomed here folks---Jews who own the media and entertainment are siding with Pelosi...

Navyvetew1 • You are right it is not a Jew thing, it is a liberal thing.

hun555 • yes Jewish people are largely liberal...that is why I like them...

jiggabubro • Liberals are just melting. Lol
