Howard Stern: “If You’re Anti-Israel, You’re Anti-American” [Language Warning]
Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014
Howard Stern doesn’t always say things the way we want to hear them, but he never pulls punches and always speaks his mind. He demonstrated this again recently when he responded to a caller who predicted that Stern would “change his tune” when it comes to the Israel – Hamas conflict once he learned more about it.
“Israel is at no fault,” Stern said bluntly. “Jews are the indigenous people of that area.”
While the rest of the middle east seems to be dissolving into chaos, Israel has remained steadfast in her determination to protect her people, democracy, and human rights.
“If you’re anti-Israel, then you’re anti-America. They’re the only democracy over there, the only friend we have who’s willing to fight and stand up for what’s right,” Stern said, predicting that if a full-scale war develops in the region, America’s only military ally would be the Jewish state.
Although many would argue that the conflict is rooted in thousands of years of history, Stern believes he knows the root of the current hatred of the Palestinians for the Jews, which is based on the liberal bogeyman of income inequality:
“Did you know that the median income [in Israel]…is $30 thousand. And the Palestinian median income is $2 thousand,” he explained. “But the Palestinians are mad at the Israelis instead of being mad at the f******g terrorists running their so-called country, who are raping the country, taking all the aid the United States actually gives to them.”
Stern is most certainly correct about one thing: the Palestinians receive more U.S. aid per capita than almost any other people group in the world, but very little of those funds seem to be getting into the hands of those who need it most.

WARNING: Intense language… viewer discretion is advised.
We don’t often have cause to use these words, but well-said, Mr. Stern. We might quibble on the precise nature of the origin of the conflict between the Palestinians and the democratic nation of Israel, but we largely agree with the rest of Stern’s analysis.
Stern places the ultimate blame for the current plight of the Palestinians exactly where it should fall: on the Palestinians themselves. “They elected terrorists to run their country. That’s the difference. Who do you support?”
