Progressive comedian Sarah Silverman defended U.S. funding for Israel’s Iron Dome defense system and questioned why prominent Israel critics in the Democratic “Squad” never mention that the Palestinians are led by Hamas, a terrorist organization that hates and wants to kill Jews.
On a the latest episode of ” The Sarah Silverman Podcast, ” the comedian commented on the recent controversy in Congress over U.S. funding for the Iron Dome missile defense system in Israel. Progressive Democrats in the House of Representatives objected to nearly $1 billion in funding for the Iron Dome as part of a larger continuing resolution to fund the government and avert a shutdown. Democrats were forced to strip the Iron Dome funding from the continuing resolution and pass it as a standalone bill . Silverman questioned why lawmakers like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), who wanted to defund the Iron Dome, fail to mention that Israel’s defense system protects residents of the tiny country from rocket attacks fired by Hamas militants from the Gaza strip.
“None of them talk about Hamas. No one in the squad is bringing up Hamas, it’s so bizarre,” said Silverman. “Yes, the occupation is not right. There cannot be justice in a place where there are people who have no freedom of movement. But they elected Hamas!”
She continued: “Why do none of them even mention Hamas — a group that until just a few years ago had a mission statement that said ‘kill all Jews.’ A group that just congratulated the Taliban for taking over Afghanistan. No, Israel is not good for Palestine, but you are kidding yourself if you think Hamas is good for Palestine.”
Warning: Explicit Language
Silverman lamented that the situation is “not simple” before addressing the Squad directly.
“Please do not defund the Iron Dome. I know that it’s not — but just, just talking to the Squad here, you know, my family lives there,” she said, becoming emotional.
“It just seems to prove the point that I didn’t think existed, which is, people really only like Jews if they’re suffering. Dead Jews get a lot of honor.”

One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
