KISS Rocker Gene Simmons Slams Obama Over Israel Policy

(By Katie Pavlich, Townhall.com) - KISS Rocker Gene Simmons, who was born in Israel, is far from impressed with President Obama's calls for the Jewish State to go back to its 1967 borders, (Obama defended his position once again [last Sunday] during a speech given at the AIPAC Conference in Washington D.C.) which would give the terrorist organization Hamas more control over the area while leaving the tiny country indefensible. Simmons also tore apart the United Nations, calling it the "most pathetic body on the face of the earth," "garbage infested," and even defended a person's right to defend themselves.

Gene Simmons: "President Obama, and I voted for an idea. What I didn't realize what I was getting was an idealist. ... How about you (Obama) live there and try to defend an indefensible border 9 miles wide. On one side you've got hundreds of millions of people who hate your guts, on the other you've got the Mediterrean. ... He (Obama) has no *expletive* idea what the world is like because he doesn't have to live there."
