Jewish actress Mayim Bialik had words of praise for radio giant Howard Stern who once again blasted Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters for his vocal anti-Israel activism.

“@HowardStern, lets discuss our shared unfashionable views on israel. Name a time. Much respect,” Bialik tweeted on Sunday.

She was responding to comments made by Stern on his Sirius XM satellite show last week. “For some reason, it’s become very important to Roger to tell artists where to perform,” Stern said on November 3rd. “There’s so many countries with histories of abuse and slavery, but he’s very focused on Israel. To me, he comes off like an antisemite.”

According to Rolling Stone magazine, Stern noted that defending Israel “isn’t fashionable,” but urged his listeners to not be “fooled” by Waters and his anti-Israel sentiments. He said: “It is a tremendous distraction for Arab leaders to say, ‘Let’s get the Jews, let’s get Israel, it’s all their fault.’ As long as their poor people are focused on Israel they don’t wake up and realize who is stealing their money. Their lives aren’t getting any better from all this crap.”

Things turned sour between Stern and Waters after the radio host discovered that the former Pink Floyd bassist is a strong Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) proponent, and also pressures musicians not to perform in Israel. In October, during a radio broadcast, Stern slammed Waters for his stance on Israel saying, “What is with Roger Waters and the Jews? Israel has a tiny little country and it bugs the sh*t out of Roger Waters.”

Waters responded by calling Stern an “a**hole” in an interview with Rolling Stone this month. The rocker claimed his opinions have nothing to do with Israelis, Jews or Judaism, and that he would “never dream of attacking them.”

Last week on his show, Stern announced he would not respond to Waters with similar name-calling. “I’m not going to call him an a**hole,” Stern said. “It’s what he believes. I just think he’s wrong.”
