First Barbra Streisand, Now Roseanne Barr

From Page Six:

ROSEANNE Barr is on the side of the Palestinians in the conflict in the Gaza Strip. “Israel is a NAZI state,” she blogged with capital letters on her Web site. And on her Jan. 6 talk show on radio station KCAA-AM in San Bernardino, Calif., she blasted conservative columnist Jonah Goldberg’s “right-wing Israel uber alles crap.” Roseanne, who is Jewish, also denounced “warmongering American rabbis . . . who are enriching themselves on weapon sales.” She said that pro-Israel Christian evangelicals believe, “The faster every Jew in Israel dies, the faster the evangelicals mistakenly believe that their idea of Jesus will return.” At one point she proclaimed, “I hate everybody, I hope the whole world blows itself up!” She ended her show with her own peace plan; “Israel has enough money to pay each and every Palestinian to not shoot at them.” But 33 seconds later she had moved on, saying, “I gotta lose some weight, my hips ache.”

Me: I am pondering a proportionate response while I drink my coffee.
