The comedian has defended Israel, slamming the Western media for their description of the Israel-Gaza conflict.

The 81-year-old star was filmed while signing autographs, comparing the conflict to a New York-New Jersey analogy.

“Let me tell you, if New Jersey were firing rockets into New York, we would wipe them out,” she told the cameraman from TMZ.

“If we heard they were digging tunnels from New Jersey to New York, we would get rid of Jersey.”

“You cannot throw rockets and expect people not to defend themselves.”

The famously outspoken TV personality maintains that the fault lies with militants who are firing rockets from people’s homes.

Evidently angered she stated, “I’m sorry, don’t you dare put weapon stashes in private homes and then we say get out – of course we’re going to do it.”

Having labelled President Obama “gay” earlier this month, no one is safe from her silver tongue.
