Of course in one sense Mozes is correct. Obama is weak. Not because he is Black but because he is a Zionist Democrat who goes along with Israeli racism. Whilst professing outrage at the mass murder in Charleston, he turns a blind eye and worse to Israel's daily slaughter of Palestinian lives.
Obama's crime in the eyes of the Israeli political establishment and most Israeli Jews is that he took the 'piss process' (as the peace process is known in Israel) a little too seriously. He didn't realise that it's only necessary to go through the motions. You don't actually have to believe in it. And therefore he is rightly seen as weak. Of course if the United States had any morality in its foreign policy then it would cut off aid to Israel as and until it disgorged the territories it has conquered and permitted the right of return of the refugees. But to expect the imperialist beast to take flight with the dove is asking a bit much.
And as Israel is the world's most racist society and also its most right-wing, it is to be expected that a Black President of the USA will be the target of Zionist racists. The fact that the government is stuffed with racists and that Mozes's hubbie is none other than Israel's racist Interior Minister and Deputy PM, Silvan Shalom, is to be expected. After all, as David Sheen points out, he is busy every day in incarcerating Black asylum seekers in Israel's concentration camp in the Negev desert.
So when Mozes professes concern that her hubbie might divorce her and get a get (a Jewish divorce) I think we can reassure her that in the quiet of her married bliss they can both go on sharing racist 'jokes' to their heart's content. Nothing to be worried about dear though it obviously sounds good to outsiders.
And Israel's former Ambassador to the US, Michael Oren, ascribes Obama's apparent partiality to Islam (don't notice he throws them $3 billion unlike Israel) to his father(s). If this is the level of Israel's diplomatic corps. it's no wonder that they are having difficulty tackling BDS. It's no use sending legions of trained Israeli students, full of hasbara, abroad if they spend their day making racist 'jokes'.
|What's a racist joke between friends? Her excuse? Someone sent it to her. Presumably she retweets all the racist crap she's sent.|
The internet is buzzing with the racist tweet by the wife of an Israeli minister.
Mozes is a journalist and radio host. She’s married to Silvan Shalom, Israel’s vice prime minister and minister of the interior. The Independent says Mozes has since removed the tweet and apologized.

I apologize, that was a stupid joke somebody told me.
She elaborated on twitter, saying her marriage is at risk:
|Mozes's twitter page|
President Obama I shouldnt have written the inappropriate joke I heard. I like people no matter about their race and religion.
|Silvan Shalom - Israel's racist Interior Minister - Just Loves Locking up Black People|
Sorry if I caused any offence to anyone. I hope I will stay married when my husband will land and hear what I did.
Mozes is no pisher; she has 74,000 followers on twitter. Notice that she tweets in Hebrew and English. The racist tweet was in English.

David Sheen writes,
Israel Interior Minister responsible for rounding non-Jewish black folks into camps, so no surprise his wife’s racist
More intolerance reported by Yousef Munayyer, from Michael Oren:
Former Israel Amb to the US says Obama efforts to reach out to Muslim world product of Obama being abandoned by two muslim fathers. WTF
The kooky quote is from Oren’s latest op-ed.
Obama’s attitudes toward Islam clearly stem from his personal interactions with Muslims… I could imagine how a child raised by a Christian mother might see himself as a natural bridge between her two Muslim husbands. I could also speculate how that child’s abandonment by those men could lead him, many years later, to seek acceptance by their co-religionists
Is there an emergency brake on this car? And who does Mozes hang out with that she hears this kind of thing?
Both statements are bizarre examples of Israeli leaders’ difficulty understanding an increasingly diverse world that is at odds with Zionism. So we see a growing siege mentality, an inability to connect, and extreme anger even at the President of Israel’s best ally. It’s hard to imagine this coming out of any politician’s mouth in the U.S., at that level. And it’s more evidence of Israel’s racist rightward reality, which is regularly reported on our site and regularly papered over in the New York Times. Max Blumenthal and Joseph Dana documented this 6 years ago and people said they were lying. And it’s likely just to get worse from here.
