Gene Simmons, lead vocalist for KISS, has something to say to U.S. President Barack Obama: "You have no f@cking idea."


The Israeli born Simmons, who's birth name is Chaim Witz, has taken offence to Obama's 1967 border proposal made last Friday. Echoing what Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu said in yesterday's speech to Congress, Simmons states that going back to the 1967 borders would leave Israel's borders indefensible.


Simmons and his family left Israel when he was 8 years old. In March 2011 he returned for his first visit to Israel since he left in 1957. He described his trip as a "life changing experience" and how he has always felt Israeli - "I'm Israel. I'm a stranger in America. I'm an outsider."


Since his trip, Simmons has become a much more vocal supporter of Israel, as can be seen in the video below:
