Jerry Seinfeld Mocks Pro-Palestinian Heckler

Jerry Seinfeld had some fun at a pro-Palestinian heckler's expense at a show in Australia on Sunday.

Seinfeld was performing at Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney when a heckler began screaming about freeing "Palestine," according to published reports. But Seinfeld hit back.

"We have a genius, ladies and gentlemen. He solved the Middle East. He solved it," Seinfeld said according to video of the event. "It's the Jewish comedians, that's who we have to get. They're the ones doing everything."

Seinfeld, who has expressed his support for Israel during its war with Hamas, continued to mock the heckler as he was being removed by security.

"They're going to start punching you in three seconds, so I would try and get all your genius out so we all learn from you," Seinfeld said. "It's a comedy show, you moron. Get out of here. You're really influencing everyone here. We're all on your side now because you have made your point so well and in the right venue. You've come to the right place for political conversation."

The comedian's roast earned him applause from the audience.

"Tomorrow we will read in the paper: Middle East 100% solved thanks to man at the Qudos Arena stopping Jew comedian … You have to go 20,000 miles from the problem and screw up a comedian. That is how you solve world issues," Seinfeld said.

Last month, Seinfeld had a set in Virginia interrupted by a pro-Palestinian protester. The heckler said Seinfeld was a "genocide supporter" and was met with boos from the audience who cheered, "Jerry! Jerry!"

In December, he visited Tel Aviv to meet with the families of hostages and has remained vocal in his backing of Israel amid its conflict with Hamas.

Seinfeld's speech at Duke University's commencement ceremony last month sparked pro-Palestinian protests and led to some students walking out.
