“I’m not anti-Arab. I’m not anti-Israeli either. I really feel rather strongly about the Palestinian refugees. Sorry to get serious and political, but there’s an old American saying: ‘you can’t make an omlette without breaking eggs.’ Why is it always other people’s eggs they have to break? So my stand on the Middle East situation is very ambivalent, I’m afraid. I feel more for the people whose eggs are broken.”

Marty Feldman, circa ’73.
