pat_robertson.jpgPat Robertson made an appallingly offensive comment? Shocking, I know.

Right Wing Watch reports that Robertson had Daniel Lapin,a conservative activist and rabbi, on the 700 Club

"What is it about Jewish people that make them prosper financially? Well, you'll almost never find Jews tinkering with their cars on the weekends or mowing their lawns. That's what Daniel Lapin says and there's a very good reason for that, and it lies within the business secrets of the Bible."

Later, Robertson also opined that Jews are "polishing diamonds, not fixing cars."

Watch, after the jump.

h/t: Joe. My. God.
