Comedy legend Jerry Seinfeld delivered a blistering roast of an anti-Israel protester who tried to disrupt a show in Australia over the weekend.

In a video going viral during Seinfeld’s set in Sydney on Sunday, an “activist” decided to voice his grievances over the comedian’s unwavering support for Israel in its fight against Hamas.

“We have a genius, ladies and gentlemen. He solved the Middle East,” Seinfeld called out to the heckler. “They’re going to start punching you in about three seconds, so I would try to get all of your genius out so we can all learn from you.”

Feigning gratitude for the misguided input, Seinfeld’s sarcasm only intensified from there.

“You’re really influencing everyone here. We’re all on your side now because you’ve made your point so well and in the right venue. You’ve come to the right place for a political conversation,” he mocked.

“You have to go 20,000 miles from the problem and screw up a comedian. That is how you solve world issues.”

Unfortunately, this wasn’t the only instance of antisemites seeking to ambush the comedian for his outspoken love of Israel. Following a pro-Arab walkout during Seinfeld’s honorary graduation speech at UCLA last month, attempts to disrupt the Jewish comic’s life have been ongoing with his family receiving threats, according to the Daily Beast.

Yet, as always, Seinfeld has taken the relentless harassment from the anti-Israel boycott movement in stride.

“When we get protesters occasionally, I love to say to the audience, ‘You know, I love that these young people, they’re trying to get engaged with politics. We have to just correct their aim a little bit. They don’t seem to understand that as comedians, we really don’t control anything,'” Seinfeld told the audience after the heckler was removed by security.

    A huge cheer, from a JEWESS, born and bred in S Africa. I wish more PEOPLE would have the courage to stand against the ANTISEMETIC folk, folk including people who don’t have the foggiest idea what they are actually shouting about.
