Gene Simmons, KISS Star in Israel

Gene Simmons, alias Chaim Witz was born in Israel.  He left at the age of nine but has just returned for a visit after 52 years of living in the states.  His father had been a survivor of the Auschwit death camp. 

So many Hollywood stars are actively boycotting Israel, but this superstar called them "idiots."  His comment about Israel was that "there ain't no place like Israel on Earth.  It's amazing to be back here," said the 61 year old co-founder of KISS when he was in Jerusalem Tuesday at the the David Citadel Hotel.  He came with an entourage including his companion Shannon Tweed and their son Nick.  They were all in Jerusalem to film part of their "Gene Simmons Family Jewels." The group took over eight rooms in the hotel.

He commented that he had forgotten a lot of his Hebrew language but did manage to remember some of it.  After all these years he's finding that it has changed a lot. 

He was there not that far from the Egged bus bombing.
