Rabbi in­vites Roseanne to speak to Is­raelis

The Tribune (SLO) - - Espresso -

Con­tro­ver­sial sit­com star Roseanne Barr is get­ting an­other op­por­tu­nity to speak her mind, this time be­fore the Is­raeli par­lia­ment.

Rabbi Sh­mu­ley Boteach – founder of the World Val­ues Net­work and a per­sonal friend of Barr – an­nounced Mon­day that the ac­tress was em­bark­ing on a trip to Is­rael in Jan- uary and has been in­vited to ad­dress par­lia­ment by Deputy Speaker Yechiel Hi­lik Bar.

“I very much look for­ward to my trip as a lover of Is­rael,” Barr said via a news re­lease on Mon­day. “While I in­tend to fur­ther my own knowl­edge of Jew­ish and Is­raeli his­tory, I have im­por­tant work to do as a voice against the in­sid­i­ous and anti-Semitic BDS move­ment.” (Ac­cord­ing to its web­site, “The Boy­cott, Di­vest­ment, Sanc­tions (BDS) move­ment works to end in­ter­na­tional sup­port for Is­rael’s op­pres­sion of Pales­tini­ans and pres­sure Is­rael to com­ply with in­ter­na­tional law.”)
