American comedian Jerry Seinfeld visited an Israeli “counter-terror” security training academy in the occupied West Bank with his family last week, and Palestinian and human rights activists didn’t find it funny.
The star of the celebrated sitcom Seinfeld drew condemnation for posing with Israeli trainers at the Caliber 3 academy near the illegal settlement of Efrat, south of Bethlehem.
The academy posted photos of the comedian with his family on Facebook, saying that they came to the site “for shooting training with displays of combat, Krav Maga, assault dogs and lots of Zionism. It was great.”
In one photo, the comedian is seen holding a machine gun. The post was later deleted without explanation.
