Recently, Sandler stated in an interview with Ynet News for his upcoming movie Pixels that he identifies with Israelis “a hundred percent.”

“I will always stand with Israel. I can’t tolerate people who criticize Israel without walking in their shoes. I hate the lies they spread and their lack of knowledge. I’m proud to stand up for the Israelis,” Sandler also stated, according to Stand With US.

In 2008, Sandler was the lead screenwriter and actor in the movie, “You Don’t Mess with the Zohan” Sandler plays the role of an Israeli Mossad agent, who becomes tired of killing “terrorists” and  travels to New York to become a hairdresser. According to Ynet news, the film attempts to satirize the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

“About eight years ago Mr. Sandler conceived of the Zohan character, an Israeli assassin who has been trained to hate and kill Arabs; exhausted by the ceaseless bloodshed, he fakes his own death and flees to New York to become a hairdresser. There he finds Jews and Arabs living together in grudging if not quite harmonious tolerance” Ynet News reported.

The film sparked public outrage in 2008 for its demonization of Palestinians. The Los Angeles Times described the movie as a “frustratingly uneven” satire on Arab-Israeli conflict. Additionally, NPR’s Bob Mondello said, “what’s more annoying than the crassness, really, is the directorial sloppiness that results in a virtually mirthless first half-hour and a slow build to chuckles thereafter.”
