Jon Stewart: Holy "Promised Land" is in Canada

Just a few days after making headlines in the US for suggesting during his late-night faux news program that the Palestinians should be given a state already, Jewish-American host/comedian Jon Stewart decided to delve deeper into the debate.

The background here is that all of this is happening in conjunction with the UN General Assembly debate on Palestinian Statehood.

Stewart’s show last week won two Emmy Awards, and in my humor-bone opinion, this is award-winning stuff as well:

Admittedly, the Middle East conflict is no laughing matter, but sometimes a few giggles can help.
