Roseanne Barr — a pro-Trump, pro-Israel actress who was booted from her eponymous sitcom over racist tweets — has been invited to speak out against the boycott of Israel at the nation’s parliamentary body early next year, Haaretz reported. 

 The speech is part of Barr’s media blitz with celebrity Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, who came to the actress’ defense when she was berated for comparing former President Obama official Valerie Jarrett to “Planet of the Apes” and the “Muslim Brotherhood.”

Barr was reportedly invited to speak to the Israeli Knesset on Jan. 30 by Knesset Deputy Speaker Hilik Bar, according to Haaretz. She plans to discuss her opposition to the BDS movement — Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions — which is designed to economically pressure the Israeli government into easing its attacks on Palestine and acknowledging the human rights of those in the region.
