While comedian Jon Stewart (né Jon Stewart Leibowitz) spent this summer on a lengthy hiatus from his “The Daily Show,” his production crew were busy preparing for his triumphant return next Tuesday.

In anticipation of the big day, a compilation of Stewart’s best Jewish moments, aptly titled “A Salute to Jewish People,” with the subheading “The Daily Show tapes before sundown, and therefore breaks no Passover laws,” aired this past week.

The montage features clips from interviews with Jewish comedian Sascha Baron Cohen’s alter-ego Borat, as well as other moments where Stewart’s Jewishness made for good comedic fodder or interludes.

  • How dare he make jokes when helpless ants are being crushed by Palestinian feet on breadlines across…YOU OWE US! YOU OWE US EVERYTHING YOU HAVE!!!!!! AND MORE!!!!

    More insanity from the orthodox bigots and fanatics who live in a world of fanaticism without any comprehension of humor.

    • Michael Abramowitz

      Orthodox Jews are often called fanatics or bigots because they see the world as it is and not in the PC mode that our news media would like it to be. With all the resources in the hands of Islam, and after the attack by Muslims on 9/11 which was greater than Pearl Harbor, you expect there to be no hatred and anger? America called their enemies by name in World War II and hated those who murdered our people in Pearl Harbor, a normal and natural instinct when your “family” is murdered. BUT TO PUT A BIT OF HUMOR IN TO THIS RESPONSE, IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT: The Orthodox
      are crazy, the Conservatives..hazy, and the Reform..lazy.

  • He is a sponsor of websites that accuse Jews with survivalist instincts of being Islamophobic. He is a traitor to the Jews.

      Oh, please. Get a sense of humor.

      You need a psychiatrist Mr. Weberman.

  • Sandy Brown

    Sasha Baren Cohen is the best. He makes me laugh. I like the one where he played the Dictator with all the women around him. Sounds familiar!

  • realj

    Jon Stewart just ridicules Jews and is unfunny. This was lame.

    • Elliot J. Stamler

      And Jackie Mason, the ultra-conservative, ultra right-wing Republican hater of every Democrat, of the president, etc. etc., doesn’t ridicule Jews. And yes Jackie Mason is hysterically funny…Jon Stewart is very witty and amusing…you people are really pills.

  • J.J. Surbeck

    That would be “né” (masculine), not “née” (feminine)- meaning born – unless there’s something John hasn’t told us about? 🙂

  • xynnek

    Make no mistake. Jon Stewart is a Palestinean sympathizer, who riducules observant Jews and has bashed Israel.

  • Harry M. Stuart

    How was that “Salute” funny? I guess, if you love Jon Stewart, it was.

    • ilene

      You need to learn to laugh at yourself.

      • Steve B

        It’s called a “sense of humor”…look into it!
