Jon Stewart is no stranger to broaching Middle East issues on his evening comedy series, The Daily Show.

Last week, the Jewish comedian targeted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, performing a bit about the leader’s upcoming address at Congress, which has been the subject of much international scrutiny.

In the segment, Stewart lays out the various political implications brought about by Netanyahu’s planned speech–the divisive reactions between Republicans and Democrats, and the Israeli elections just weeks later.

Stewart also gently mocks a new campaign video by the prime minister’s camp, in which a play on words is used to turn “babysitter” in “Bibi-sitter.”

“I guess Jews can’t be funny in every nation,” Stewart deadpans.
