Pronounced: Rogen made headlines after saying he was indoctrinated with ‘huge amounts of lies’ about the Israel-Palestine conflict in a WTF performance with Marc Maron podcast earlier this week
Rogen has also been linked to An American Pickle, an HBO Max movie about a 1920s man who lives in modern Brooklyn after being kept in a pickle barrel for a century.
Rogen made headlines after saying he was indoctrinated with “huge amounts of lies” about the conflict between Israel and Palestine in an appearance on the WTF with Marc Maron podcast earlier this week.
“As a Jewish person, I saw a lot of lies about Israel all my life,” Rogen told Maron. “They never told you,” Oh, there were people, by the way. “They make it look like you’re sitting there, like the door opens – they forget to tell the fact to every young Jewish person. ‘
Opinion: Rogen, who said he would never live in Israel, said he believes there is “an outdated process of thought” with Israel in their conflict with Palestine
Rogen, who said he would never live in Israel, said he believes there is “an outdated process of thought” with Israel in their conflict with Palestine.
“If it’s for religious reasons, I don’t agree because I think religion is stupid,” he said. “If it’s really about preserving Jewish people, there’s no point, because again, you’re not keeping something you’re all trying to keep in one place – especially if that place turns out to be quite volatile, you know? ‘
On the podcast, Rogen and Maron, who are also Jewish, spoke of their experiences with anti-Semitism.
“I remember my father telling me outright,” People hate Jews. Keep that in mind. They just do that, “said Rogen. “And honestly, it’s something I’m so happy with that I’ve been up to date since childhood.
“Because if it wasn’t, I’d be constantly shocked at how many bastards Jews hate.”
