He said: “Joan Rivers brought laughter to millions around the world and was proud of her Jewish heritage and a vocal supporter of the State of Israel. We will miss her deeply and we send our heartfelt condolences to her family.”

Her daughter Melissa Rivers said:  “My mother’s greatest joy in life was to make people laugh. Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon.”

    Netanyahu saw a different Joan Rivers than the one I saw. I found her vulgar, vainglorious, narcissistic, with no perceived pride in her Jewish heritage, indeed no respect either (see her comments on Rabbis and her idea of a funeral not long before her death). She was self-serving and characterised all the worst American Hollywood traits. Perhaps those intimate with her could provide another side of her not publicly displayed. I didn’t find her funny either.
