I'm Pro-Israel, Declares Leno Ahead of Israel Visit


Iconic host Jay Leno, who is headed to Israel to emcee the first Genesis Prize award ceremony, said Friday he saw himself as “pro-Israel” and “pro-Jewish”, according to Fox News.

Leno, for whom it will be his first trip to Israel, said he didn't have "any problem" with his decision to perform in Israel, despite growing calls on famous artists by many pro-Palestinian Arab activists to boycott the Jewish state.
