Joan Rivers is joining shock Jock Howard Stern in defending Israel.
TMZ asked Rivers about the Gaza fighting in an airport interview. Rivers went into an exasperated tirade, saying repeatedly that Hamas started the war, hides weapons in people’s private homes, schools and hospitals, and Israel has to defend its people.

“Palestinians, you cannot throw rockets and expect Israel not to defend themselves, ” Rivers said.
When TMZ asked about civilian casualties, Rivers responds “Don’t you dare put weapons stashes in private homes.”
The comedienne also attacked Selena Gomez for her pro-Palestinian tweet, slammed CNN, the BBC and the rest of the news media, who are pushing Palestinian casualty figures without the context of Hamas’ responsibility for starting the war by firing rockets at Israeli civilian centers.
