Israeli Politician’s Wife Sorry For Racist Words About Obama

She said what??? It is true. In a shocking tweet to 74,400 of her Twitter followers, the wife of an Israeli minister tweeted this:

?Do u know what Obama Coffee is? Black and weak.”

In the shadow of emotional pain from the Charleston mass shooting and shaky Israeli relations, why would @JudyMozes send such a tweet?

Judy Nir-Mozes? husband, Israeli Vice Prime Minister and Interior Minister Silvan Shalom,?is an important member of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud Party. That is the one charged with strategic ties with the United States.

The Racist Words

Her tweet hit the online wall against racist criticism and blame. Hard. The disapproval was so strong, she deleted the offending tweet and apologized?first to the general public:

“I apologize, that was a stupid joke somebody told me.”

?And then she addressed President Obama directly so that her Twitter followers could see:

“President Obama I shouldnt [sic] have written the inappropriate joke I heard. I like people no matter about their race and religion.

“Sorry if I caused any offence to anyone. I hope I will stay married when my husband will land and hear what I did.?

Who Is Nir-Mozes?

You would think that Nir-Mozes would have more editing power over her tongue, since her family owns daily newspaper, Yediot Aharonot. She also has a weekly radio program and is on any number of TV shows.

Oh wait. This is beginning to sound familiar. I think we have another FOX news host dressed in Israeli clothing. She criticizes Israel?s political left. So of course she would criticize our president ? for attention.

But this time the attention was primarily negative. I hope it hurts.
