ROSEANNE BARR TO ADDRESS ISRAELI PARLIAMENT

Disgraced comedian Roseanne Barr is headed over to Israel to address the Parliament in January, ahead of the country’s next election. Barr calls it a way to "further my own knowledge of Jewish and Israeli history" and vowsto speak out "against the insidious and anti-Semitic BDS movement," the Palestinian effort to sanction Israel in protest of its occupation.

Barr’s spiritual guide Rabbi Shmuley Boteach’s World Values Network is sponsoring her journey.

Barr has been MIA for the most part following ABC’s axing of her namesake show. That of course, followed her famous tirade on Twitter, in which she referred to former Obama White House aide Valerie Jarrett as an ape. She later defended herself, saying she had no idea Jarrett was black.
