Bassem Youssef says Israel is Homelander not Superman

Egyptian Comedian, Bassem Youssef is the talk of social media after siding with the Palestinian people in a recent interview with British TV personality, Piers Morgan.  

In the interview, Bassem Youssef described Israel as The Boys’ corrupted and evil superhero, Homelander, and said:

“You think Israel is Superman, but they’re really just Homelander. They’re shooting fish in a barrel and they’re annoyed at the splashes.”

Homelander is The Boys’ take on DC’s Superman with a twist since he possesses all of Superman’s abilities, but abuses them and corrupts other heroes around him.

He then added that Israel always victimizes itself and has never seen an occupier put their oppressor under siege for more than 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Bassem Youssef to Piers:

“Israel wants you to believe that they are the victim, dealing with Israel is so difficult, it’s like being in a relationship with a narcissistic psychopath, he fucks you up then makes you think it’s your fault!”
