Stephen Colbert Presses Israeli Ambassador on Palestine (VIDEO)

Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren appeared on Comedy Central's 'The Colbert Report' (weeknights, 11:30PM ET on COM) Wednesday to discuss the Israeli blockade of Gaza and he faced some tough questions from Stephen Colbert.

The segment concludes with Colbert raising the controversy surrounding Helen Thomas' recent remarks on Israel (in which she said that the Israelis should get the heck out of Palestine and go back where they came from).

"If anything," Colbert said, "the Palestinians should go back to where they came from. Do you agree? Do you agree, sir? It's time to get them back to wherever that was?"

Oren's response: "I don't agree."
