“Real Time” host Bill Maher spent part of Friday’s show slamming the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, calling it a “bulls— purity test.”

Maher kicked off the show’s panel segment by asking if it was “fair” to boycott, divest, and sanction Israel in wake of the clash between the Israeli government and pro-BDS U.S. Reps. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., over their planned visit to Israel.

The article goes on to state the following:

But since Maher’s panelists all sidestepped the question, he decided he would “answer it myself.”

“It’s a bulls— purity test, BDS is a bulls— purity test by people who want to appear ‘woke’ but actually slept through history class,” Maher said, drawing loud cheers from the audience. “It’s predicated on this notion … I think it’s very shallow thinking that the Jews in Israel are mostly white and Palestinians are mostly brown, so they must be innocent and correct and the Jews must be wrong. As if the occupation came right out of the blue, that this ‘completely peaceful people’ found themselves occupied. Forget about the intifadas and the suicide bombings and the rockets and how many wars.”
