Seth Rogen says he was ‘fed a huge amount of lies about Israel’

Seth Rogen claims that Hebrew school left him painfully misinformed about the state of Israel.

“As a Jewish person I was fed a huge amount of lies about Israel my entire life,” the 38-year-old actor said on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast.

“They never tell you that, ‘Oh, by the way, there were people there.’ They make it seem like it was just like sitting there, like the f..king door’s open.

“They forget to include the fact to every young Jewish person.”

The Canadian-born comedian whose parents met on a kibbutz in Israel attended a jewish elementary day school and a zionist youth group camp.

Rogen also said that his father warned him about anti-semitism.

“I remember my dad frankly telling me,  ‘People hate Jews. Just be aware of that. They just do,’” Rogen said.

The “Super Bad” star will soon be seen in “An American Pickle” in which he plays a struggling East European laborer and his great-grandson.
