Adam Sandler has sided with Howard Stern in his war of words against former Pink Floyd singer-songwriter Roger Waters. “I’m very pro-Israel,” the comedian told Stern earlier this week, via Jewish Journal. “When you go off on Roger Waters, I fucking love that you do that. I’m disgusted that they single out Israel. All those nice Israeli people are getting a ‘fuck you’ from Roger Waters. … I’m not a crazy religious, but I’m proud of being a Jew, and that’s what I am.”

Earlier this year, Stern ripped into Roger Waters for his extremely vocal support of a cultural boycott of Israel. “Where do you want the Jews to go, Roger?” he said. “You want them to go back to the concentration camps? What is it you want, fuckhead?” In an interview with Rolling Stone, Waters refused to respond in length. “I wouldn’t waste a single one of my precious breaths on that asshole,” he said. “And I just did. That was a waste of breath.”

Stern was willing to devote more than a few breaths to his response. “For some reason, it’s become very important to Roger to tell artists where to perform,” he said. “There’s so many countries with histories of abuse and slavery, but he’s very focused on Israel. To me, he comes off like an anti-Semite. … By the way, I checked in, luckily the guys in Foghat have no problem with Israel. It’s just one guy from Pink Floyd.”

The Sandler appearance on Howard Stern came just a couple hours after broadcaster announced that he had signed another five-year deal with Sirius. “If you are not listening to SiriusXM and The Howard Stern Show, then you are really more like a zombie,” he said, “a rotting corpse monster, living half a life, deadened and blackened inside.”
