The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2021


Bill Maher


Late-night talk show host Bill Maher has risen to Israel’s defense many times in the past, and 2021 was no different. As Israel and Hamas clashed in May, Maher took on anti-Israel celebrity Bella Hadid, who had voiced support for a Palestinian state in place of Israel. “You know, as far as Gaza goes, it’s amazing to me that the progressives think that they’re being progressive by taking that side of it, the Bella Hadids of the world, these influencers,” Maher said on his show. He added: “I just want to say in February of this year, a Hamas court ruled that an unmarried woman cannot travel in Gaza without the permission of a male guardian. Really? That’s where the progressives are? Bella Hadid and her friends would run screaming to Tel Aviv if they had to live in Gaza for one day.” (Photo: Wikimedia / Creative Commons License)
