Celebrities boycotting Israel should be blacklisted in Hollywood, comedy legend Jackie Mason told "Aaron Klein Investigative Radio" on Sunday according to a report by Breitbart.
According to Mason, it is "disgusting" that celebrities who have profited from Jewish producers and directors, people who have advanced their careers with the help of Jewish people, would then turn around and boycott Israel.
"If not for the Jews who created the industry in Hollywood, all these people would never have a job and would never be working," Mason told Klein. "The Jews supported them all their lives. And the Jews made it possible for them to make a living.”
Mason asserted that without the help of the Jewish people, most of Hollywood's biggest celebrities would be working day jobs "making 40 dollars a week for the rest of their lives."
It is because of the Jews, Mason claimed, that they became successful and famous and the Jews are making them billions of dollars.
“If they had any decency they would want to go out of their way to help Jewish people and to save Jewish people because the State of Israel represents the people who made it possible for them to ever become a celebrity in the first place," Mason ascertained. "If not for them you would be starving to death today.”
The BDS movement is built on backwards logic, Mason said according to the report.
According to Mason, Palestinians are persecuting Israel and people are convincing themselves that they are the victims. A Palestinian in Israel can make a living and all the while they are looking for excuses to stab Israelis in the streets, said Mason.
"This is the most disgusting thing I ever heard of in my life," he added.
