This Hollywood Actor Just Passionately Defended Israel

Adam Sandler had some strong words for celebrities who boycott Israel, speaking on the Howard Stern Show on Tuesday. Sandler, who described himself as being "very pro-Israel" said that he didn't think it was fair for artists (particularly Pink Floyd's Roger Waters) to pressure others to not perform in the country.

During their conversation on Tuesday's Howard Stern Show, Sandler expressed his own revulsion for the British musician and the boycott Israel movement.

“I’m disgusted they single out Israel,” the filmmaker said, lashing out at the Pink Floyd frontman who frequently pressures artists to cancel performances planned for the Jewish state.

“I’m proud of being a Jew,” Sandler said, when Stern probed him about his Jewish heritage. “I get that from my father and mother."

“I’m very pro-Israel and when someone says [expletive] about Israel, and I know people say [expletive] about Israel and they...won’t play there…and when you go off on Roger Waters I love that you do that."

"I’m disgusted that they single out Israel that [they say], ‘We can’t play Israel.’ All these nice Israeli people are getting a ‘[screw] you’ from Roger Waters.”

It was suggested that the band attacked during the attack in Paris in November, Eagles of Death Metal, was targeted after they played in Israel despite a request from Waters to boycott.
