Fox News host and commentator Jesse Watters launched into a tirade on “The Five” on Wednesday that stunned many. He said, “We are fed up,” as he addressed Arab Americans who had torn down posters depicting Israeli hostages.
There have been numerous stories of people supporting Palestine tearing down posters of people kidnapped by Hamas following the shock terror attack that killed 1,400 people.
Watters ended the show coldly as they discussed another case of poster tearing down Wednesday: “I want to say something about Arab Americans and about the Muslim world.”
He said that “we – and when I say we, I mean the West and Western technology” made them “rich” in the Middle East by extracting oil and financing their armed forces, and even went so far say: “We kill their terrorists.” .’
“But we did it. “We’re tired of it,” Watters declared, calling the Middle East “this stupid desert” that presidents since Biden have been trying to get out of.

“Just when we want to get out, because we have this great balance of power that we’re arranging, these crazy Muslim fanatics come in and massacre over a thousand of our allies and hold Jewish people hostage, hold Americans hostage,” he said.
“And so if you’re an Arab American in this country and you’ve torn down posters of Jewish hostages, American hostages, no! No no no.”
He ended his tirade by saying, “Someone’s going to get punched in the face.” If you tear down posters of the hostages like that.’
Watters was sharply criticized on social media by many liberals, including those who supported Israel’s response to the attacks.
“How can Jesse Watters’ mother continue to be loyal to this monster?” asked Norman Ornstein, referring to Watters’ joke with his Democratic mother on his primetime show on Fox News.
CNN’s Wajahat Ali, himself a Muslim American, wrote: “1.7 billion of us.” Sorry. It’s hard to kill us all. And why should you? “We make your life delicious.”
Some complained that Watters had been taken out of context, and one user on “That’s why no one trusts you.”
“The “…” provides a lot of lift there. “You’re talking about people taking fliers from kidnap victims,” another added, responding to a headline that made it seem like Watters was addressing all Arab Americans.

The confrontations are taking place on campuses across the country, with unrest particularly affecting the eight Ivy League universities.
According to the Anti-Defamation League, anti-Semitic incidents in the United States increased by nearly 400 percent in the days following the October 7 Hamas attacks.
At Yale, a student journalist who wrote an editorial about the October 7 attacks was shocked to find that the editors had removed parts of her text.
“Editor’s note, correction, Oct. 25: This column has been edited to remove unsubstantiated claims that Hamas raped women and beheaded men,” they wrote.
Body camera footage filmed by the Hamas terrorists themselves and recovered from their bodies shows them beheading a man.
NBC News, which was shown the footage, reported on October 27th that a group of Hamas terrorists are arguing over who gets to cut off the head of a Thai man who was killed while working in Israel. One of the attackers then struggles to cut off his head with a hoe.
On Sunday evening, threats were posted online to shoot Jewish students in the 104 West building, where their kosher dining hall is located.
According to the school’s student newspaper, The Cornell Daily Sun, other messages encouraged others to harm Jews.

New York State Police have increased security on the Cornell campus following the threats.
On Monday, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul called those who threatened Jewish students at Cornell University “terrorists” and warned that anyone who makes threats “will not be given refuge.”
Cornell student Patrick Dai was brought into federal court in shackles Wednesday morning after confessing to making vile threats against Jews after FBI agents traced his IP address to campus and his hometown.
