Joan Rivers: ‘Low IQ’ Palestinians ‘Deserve To Be Dead’

American actress and comedian Joan Rivers, who in recent weeks has been defending Israel’s Operation Protective Edge in interviews, said in defense of her earlier pro-Israel rants that she didn’t want to hear about civilian casualties in Gaza, because “they started it.”

Rivers, who said last month that “you cannot throw rockets and expect people not to defend themselves,” said this week that “you’re dead, you deserve to be be dead. Don’t you dare make me feel bad about that” on camera to a TMZ reporter who told her almost 2,000 Palestinians have been killed in the past month. (Israel says 750-1,000 of the dead are Hamas gunmen.)

The reporter, who spoke to Rivers at LAX airport earlier this week about her previous remarks, received another rant in response — more controversial than the last.
