Chelsea Handler is making waves in the Middle East, and it’s not for her unique brand of humor.

The Jewish comedian has been posting a slew of photos to social media cataloguing her visit to Israel, and most recently uploaded a picture of herself sitting topless on a camel.

“A Muslim allowed a topless Jew to sit on his camel. And we say we can’t live side by side? I say we try and we can and we will. And, You don’t even have to be topless. L’chaim,” Handler wrote in an Instagram post.

Handler has long been an advocate of less nudity censorship for women, and has posted similar images in the past.

At the Kotel, the comedienne wrote:

“From the window…to the wall. Jerusalem is for lovers. Are you there Oprah? It’s me, chesty.”

And a street sign she added:

“Homelanding in my homeland. With my jugs in my jacket. ‪#‎RESPECT‬”

Handler also met with past Israeli President and Prime Minister Shimon Peres, at his Peres Center for Peace.

From the president:

Shalom Chelsea Handler! Today the American comedian and television host visited the The Peres Center For Peace during her visit to Israel. As a welcoming gesture, former President Shimon Peres שמעון פרס gave her a private tour around our beautiful building. Another influential person who supports and shares our message of PEACE and HOPE!
