The American actress and comedian Roseanne Barr told off an Israeli writer on Twitter on Sunday in response to his tweet dissuading Jews from France to immigrate to Israel following the ISIS attacks on Paris that killed 130 people.  

"Jews of France, stay in France. Don't flee Muslim facism (sic) into the arms of Jewish fasicm [sic]. Nothing for you in Israel," the writer Rogel Alpher tweeted to promote an opinion piece he wrote for Haaretz.

Barr answered Alpher's tweet with her own: "Stfu privileged fat skinhead," she wrote.
"To emigrate from France to Israel now is like emigrating from Palestine to Nazi Germany in 1933," Alpher wrote in his piece.  

"Jews of France, stay in France. There is no God, he did not appoint you as the chosen people and he did not promise you the land of Israel. You have no rights here. Israel has stopped being the Jewish state. It is a binational apartheid state in which Palestinians live under an occupation that denies them their basic human rights. The Zionist enterprise is dead. Committed suicide," Alpher wrote.
