At the beginning of 2019, Australian-born comedian, Jim Jefferies, edited our interview to try paint me as an extremist who inspired the horrific attack on a Mosque in Christchurch.
Too bad for him, I secretly filmed the entire interview.
I’m sure you’ve seen the video, if not, enjoy:
But to make matters worse, Jim Jefferies never apologised for his actions; in fact, the defamatory segment is still available on cable TV and all his social media platforms.
Jefferies’ only response to what he had done was to block anyone who dared question his bad behaviour, including me.
So in April of this year, I decided to travel to the United States and confront Jim Jefferies, face-to-face, like a man, but the coward called the FBI, and I was detained and deported upon entry.
Then I heard his stand-up tour was heading to Israel, and I knew I had to meet him there. After all, I’m a citizen of Israel, and no one is deporting me anywhere.
When I arrived at the stadium, I sat in a public park area behind the backstage entrance about three hours before the show was starting and almost immediately security pounced.
To be honest, until this point I thought they were cops, they’d flashed some badge, so I played nice — I didn’t want to get locked up. But when this bloke mentioned calling the police, I realised he was Jim Jefferies’ security who was specially hired to get rid of me, but I wasn’t going to be bullied by him.
Finally, the moment we’ve been waiting for all night arrives. A van with blacked-out windows pulls up to the backstage entrance, security walk up to the car preparing to let the celebrity out. But something seemed off; security was lingering as if they’re waiting for some sort of signal.
In the peripheral, I noticed a car drive around the van and stop at a side door. And when security finally opens the van door, it was evident that no one was in it, so I quickly turned my attention to the car parked at the side door, only to see Jimmy rushing out of his vehicle and bolting straight into the building.
