American actress Roseanne Barr visited Jerusalem's Western Wall and the central Mahane Yehuda market on Sunday, as part of her trip to Israel organized by Jerusalem Post columnist Shmuely Boteach.

Barr will offer a presentation Sunday in Jerusalem and then offer a talk through Tel Aviv International Salon for Young Professionals on Monday evening. 
Two days later, on January 30, Barr is scheduled to address the Knesset, but it’s unlikely there will be more than a handful of people in the plenum as MKs who are running for reelection are scrambling on the hustings.
Barr was recently fired by ABC for making what the network and others regarded as a racist slur. But Barr claims that she was misunderstood. She attributes the reason for her dismissal to the fact that she is Jewish and a supporter of Israel.
"I feel that what happened to me, a large part of it is antisemitism," the Jewish actress told the Post in a phone interview in early January from her home in Hawaii. "I think it played a part - the fact that I was never allowed to explain what I meant - and what I meant was a commentary on Iran - so they purposely mischaracterized what I said and wouldn't let me explain."
Barr  had tweeted if “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj," referring to Valerie Jarrett,  who was a senior adviser to Barack Obama.
