Remember the days where Sesame Street was all about muppets and letters and numbers? Apparently those days are over, because the latest controversy from America’s most famous street comes from actress Sonia Manzano, who is better known on “Sesame Street as “Maria.”
Manzano took her thoughts about the Middle East to Twitter with two tweets about the recent developments:
Israelis retaliate the simple recognition ofPalestiniansby UN by deciding to build 3,000 more settlements. Bullies!

She also added:
Why do Israelis need to be “recognized” by Palestinians. Did Native Americans need to “recognize” their tormentors?

Manzano has appeared in “Shalom Sesame,” a Jewish-Israeli series where the characters and muppets visit Israel and learn about Jewish culture.
