Porno star who converted to Judaism defends Israel

07/03/2019

“Israel was promised to the Jewish people [by] G-d,” Jenna Jameson wrote on Twitter. “Don’t Arabs have enough land? They target the one free-thinking democracy and want to turn it into a wasteland”…”Why does ‘Palestine’ want to drive all Jews into the sea? Why do they want to take over what the Jews have built and ethnically cleanse?”

Can any insights about the prospects of Middle East peace be gained from an actress whose credits include films like Zombie Strippers, Dirt Merchant, Erotic Aftershock and Teenage Delinquents?


Actually, yes.


One-time porn goddess Jenna Jameson, a recent convert to Judaism, is weighing in on such weighty matters in the wake of a firestorm of Twitter messages she has been receiving.


“The antisemitic comments don’t hurt me whatsoever; all they do is educate my followers and the public about how antisemitism runs rampant on social media,” said Jameson, who converted in 2016, in an interview published by The Algemeiner. “So by attacking my faith, you prove my plight. I welcome the hateful debates, because I am informed on the Torah due to my recent Orthodox conversion. I’ve been a warrior all my life. Now I am applying my strength to defending the Jewish people and Israel.”


Jameson, who is pregnant with her third child, has been outspoken in social media about her support for Israel and her condemnation of Palestinians – which she correctly points out does not actually exist.


“Israel was promised to the Jewish people [by] G-d,” she wrote on Twitter. “Don’t Arabs have enough land? They target the one free-thinking democracy and want to turn it into a wasteland”…”Why does ‘Palestine’ want to drive all Jews into the sea? Why do they want to take over what the Jews have built and ethnically cleanse?”


Married to an Israeli, Jameson has also spoken out strongly in favor of the Israel Defense Force. When a Twitter contact complained of Israeli soldiers killing so-called “innocent” Palestinians, the former X-rated actress wrote, “I don’t believe in Hamas launching rockets daily at Israel. They made their bed, now they can lie in it…Innocence is relative.”


She was eager to set the record straight on living conditions in the Jewish State, tweeting, “What’s ironic is the sheer number of Arabs thriving in Israel and how that is overlooked.”


She was also quick to make clear that she bears no hatred toward Muslims and Arabs. “I’m cool with [them]. I disagree with Islam. The Quran teaches to wage war on non-believers. And don’t get me started on what it says about Jews.”


“The harsh exchanges between Jameson and her critics began on Tuesday, when she posted a series of comments against the “tyranny” of Islam,” The Algemeiner reported. “After being called a “whore” and compared by a Palestinian to the late Al Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden and Zionists “who rape, kill and commit all the crimes,” she shot back: “I’m sorry you follow an ideology that promotes child rape, female genital mutilation, butchering non-believers and polygamy. The Torah does not teach hostile violent takeover of the world. It does not teach to kill men, rape their wives and enslave their children.”
