Jerry’s entourage followed closely as he strolled, surrounding the comedian throughout the trip.

It comes after Jerry defeated a pro-Palestinian supporter who interrupted the comedian during his performance in Sydney at the Qudos Bank Arena on Sunday night.

The incident, captured on video by the Australian Jewish Association, unfolded when an audience member interrupted Seinfeld with a provocative chant.

As Seinfeld performed for the crowd, the caller shouted, “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.”

The outburst sparked immediate reactions from the public, who demanded the protester “get out” and chanted “Jerry, Jerry” in solidarity with the 70-year-old comedian.

Security quickly intervened, escorting the heckler away as the audience erupted in boos.

Seinfeld, known for his sharp wit, didn’t miss a beat.

“We have a genius, ladies and gentlemen,” he joked sarcastically. ‘He solved the Middle East (crisis).’

The seasoned comedian then launched into a biting satire of the interlocutor’s approach.

“It’s the Jewish comedian, that’s who we have to get, they’re the ones who do everything,” Seinfeld joked.

“They’re going to start hitting you in about three seconds, so I’d try to bring out all your temper so we can all learn from you.”

Seinfeld’s response didn’t stop there, joking that the questioner came to the right place to make his point.

‘You’re really influencing everyone here; Now we are all on your side because you have made your point very well and in the right place. “You’ve come to the right place for a political conversation,” she said.

“Tomorrow we will read in the newspaper: ‘The Middle East is 100 percent resolved thanks to a man at Qudos Stadium arresting a Jewish comedian.'”

“They stopped him and everyone in the Middle East said, ‘Oh my God, let’s get along, we can do it.’

Seinfeld also addressed Australia’s own history with racial issues.

“Because I know there are problems here, with the indigenous aboriginals and the whites,” he said.

“They have problems here, so maybe to solve them, I’ll ruin Jim Jefferies at a show in New York.” If that works, this will work. You have to get 32,000 kilometers away from the problem and screw a comedian, that’s how world problems are solved.’

Seinfeld has made his support for Israel very clear, making him a prime target for Palestine supporters.

The comedian told the Times of Israel in December 2023, just over two months after the war in Gaza began, “I lived and worked on a kibbutz in Israel when I was 16 and I have loved our Jewish homeland ever since.”

He added that he “will always support Israel and the Jewish people.”

Following those comments, Seinfeld was approached in New York City after attending the State of the World Jewry address in February.

Journalist Bari Weiss gave the speech, and as Seinfeld left the event, protesters repeatedly shouted “free Palestine” and “you support genocide” at him.

And more recently, dozens of Duke University students walked out of their own graduation ceremony frustrated that Seinfeld was about to speak.
