American media personality Bill Maher thinks that maybe after the attacks in Brussels that killed 31 on Tuesday, Europe will have more sympathy for Israel. Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attacks at the Brussels airport and at a metro station in the city. 

Maher made the remarks on Friday on his HBO show Real Time.

"Europe has been real assholes about Israel. I mean in general," Maher said.

"The UN, as of 2015, the United Nations Human Rights Council had issued more official condemnations of Israel than the rest of the world's nations combined. I wonder now that Europe has been attacked four times now in a little over a year, and they say ISIS has 400 fighters that they are ready to introduce back into Europe, and they're trying to get a dirty bomb. Maybe Europe will have a little more sympathy for what Israel goes through."
