Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu slammed what he called an “outrageous” joke made recently by “Saturday Night Live” star Michael Che that many deemed “anti-Semitic.”

Netanyahu told “Fox & Friends” on Thursday that he thought the joke related to Israel’s coronavirus vaccine rollout was “so false.”

“Israel is reporting that they’ve vaccinated half of their population. I’m going to guess it’s the Jewish half,” Che said last month on the show’s “Weekend Update” segment.

“That’s outrageous,” Netanyahu said on Thursday, speaking from Jerusalem.

“In fact, I brought vaccines and went especially to the Arab communities, the Arab citizens of Israel and vaccinated as many as we can,” he added. “I must’ve gone to half a dozen Arab communities already, talked with the mayors there, brought the leaders, brought the doctors there, Arab doctors, this is just outrageous.”

Israel’s prime minister also discussed the COVID-19 vaccine rollout in the country with “Fox & Friends” on Thursday, saying the country is “rushing towards herd immunity.” Netanyahu added that Israel is “setting the model for the world,” regarding the country’s vaccination effort.

“We’re sharing our experiences with the U.S. [and] with every other country,” Netanyahu said.

  1. the holy Tzadik, the Amshinov Rabbi from Israel, is against the covid Vaccine
    in the Vaccine there are dangerous components that will harm your health, cause infertility and even death !!!!
    many people in I srael have died after getting the corona vaccine

  2. The “joke” was, if anything, anti-Zionist, not “antisemitic”.

    As opposed to Zionism which is, of course, anti-Jewish to its heretical and idolatrous core.

  3. Unfortunately, if this actor Chi guessed it was the Arab half of the population getting all the vaccinations it would be a worse joke––because we could never easily disprove national ill intent if that occurred.
