Actor and entertainer Adam Sandler slammed those artists who support a boycott of Israel in an interview this week on the Howard Stern show.
Israel National News reports that the unabashedly profane Sandler said,
“I’m disgusted they single out Israel. That [they say], ‘We can’t play Israel.’ All these f***ing nice Israeli people are getting a ‘f*** you’ from Roger Waters. I’m very pro-Israel and when someone says sh** about Israel, I know people say sh** about Israel and they f***ing won’t play there … and when you go off on Roger Waters I love that you do that.”
Pink Floyd band member Roger Waters – who attended a New Israel Fund conference this weekend in New York – is a supporter of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS) against Israel. Waters encourages entertainers to boycott Israel – and Stern in November said on air that Waters “comes off like an anti-Semite.” He urged his listeners not to be “fooled” by the musician and his anti-Israel sentiments.
Sandler is no fool. He said he is “proud of being a Jew and that’s what I am...I get that from my father and mother.”
