Howard Stern is known to say and do what very few radio hosts won’t. From interviewing porn stars, to rappers, singers, and pro sports legends, Stern has earned his place as one of radio’s most respected (and controversial!) icons.
His latest headline-garnering rant came thanks to an anti-Semitic caller who said Israel is “at fault” for the current conflict between the Jewish state and the terrorist group Hamas.
The caller suggested that Stern would “change his tune” and denounce Israel if the conflict continued. Stern, a long-time supporter of Israel, made his pro-Israel stance clear early and often, saying “I’m not gonna change my tune. Israel’s at no fault”
“Israel is at fault, actually,” the caller replied.
And then Stern took off the gloves.
“F**k off!” Stern shouted back. “Jews get enough shit all over the world. Jews are the indigenous people of that area,” he says. “The Arabs don’t even want those Palestinians. Nobody wants them.”
“If you’re anti-Israel you’re anti-America. [It’s] the only democracy over there, the only friend we have, who’s willing to fight and stand up for what’s right,” Stern yelled.
He continued to educate the caller and blamed the Palestinian people for embracing the terrorist group Hamas, a group Stern says cares more about rockets and missiles than the basic needs of Palestinian citizens.
“Instead of being mad at the fu*&ing terrorists raping their country … that they’re not angry with. They’re angry with Israel,” he said. “They elected terrorists to run their country.”
