Kanye West has found himself in a bit of hot water in recent times due to his antisemitic remarks. Just last weekend, Kanye West threatened to go “death con 3” on Jewish people, who, according to him, were trying to oppress him.

The remarks resulted in the rapper getting locked out of his Instagram and Twitter accounts. Now, it seems that the former Israeli Prime Minister hasn’t taken too kindly to Kanye West’s remarks regarding Jewish people. On the latest episode of Real Time With Bill Maher, Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the remarks and was far from impressed with the rapper.

“Antisemitism is the longest hatred in history. It goes back 1000s of years. We’ve dealt with bigger problems than these stupidities. But you know, the communists blame the Jews for being capitalists. The capitalists blame the Jews for being communists. You have a problem? Blame the Jews. It’s old stuff.”

“It shouldn’t have any place in civilized discourse, and that’s the reason we established the Jewish state. So the Jewish people would have a defense against these absurdities, and sometimes they’re coupled with violence. We don’t let that happen again,” Israel’s former Prime Minister told Bill Maher.

During the same interview, Benjamin Netanyahu said that Israel is America’s best ally and refuted claims of massacring Palestinians. He also claimed that the Palestinians didn’t want peace when asked about a two-state solution.

Hey! I'm a passionate pro wrestling fan. Since I unintentionally changed the TV channel and watched a clip from Monday Night RAW in 2006, I have been enamored with the world of professional wrestling. I've been hooked ever since. I got into WWE content writing 5 years ago and I still get excited when I get to tell people that I get paid to watch pro wrestling.
