Comedy queen Joan Rivers passionately defended Israel on Thursday in a monumental tirade after a TMZ reporter asked for her opinion on the current Israel-Hamas war in Gaza.

Rivers took on the BBC, CNN and pop star Selena Gomez in her heated monologue and even used New Jersey as a metaphor for Gaza.

Rivers also called out Hamas for using civilian homes to hide rockets. “Don’t you dare put weapons stashes in private homes,” she said.

“They started it,” she added repeatedly.
