I have long heard that comedy legend Barry Humphries, the man behind Dame Edna and other characters, is pro-Israel. No, I didn’t read that on the Internet (although I did read that he made Dame Edna Jewish), but rather heard it directly from people in the real world. Go figure.
With this in mind, when I saw this exchange with Jewish BDS-hole Miriam Margolyes on ABC Australia’s Q&A, I couldn’t help but see it as Humphries taking a dig at her for her anti-Israel ways.
Update: Daphne also sees this as indicative of Humphrie’s pro-Israel views.
