Roseanne in the Holy Land: No holds ‘Barr’-ed

After a spending a decade revamping the American television landscape with her hit sitcom Roseanne, in recent years Roseanne Barr has shifted tactics to shake up another much more contentious arena: the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

“BDS doesn’t want peace, nor do they want peace negotiations. They use code words like, ‘occupation’ and use it a lot [and] get all the mileage they can out of it,” Barr asserted in a forceful 20 minute speech against the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement delivered at the Yedioth Ahronoth and Ynet Conference held at the Jerusalem Convention Center on Monday.
