Israelis Insulted By Obama ‘Sole Of Shoe’ Pic

Barack Hussein Obama has done it again. He’s managed to insult the Israelis without even trying — or was he trying?

From CBS News:

Israeli TV newscasters Tuesday night interpreted a photo taken Monday in the Oval Office of President Obama talking on the phone with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as an “insult” to Israel.

They saw the incident as somewhat akin to an incident last year, when the Iraqi reporter threw a shoe at President Bush in Baghdad.

It is considered an insult in the Arab world to show the sole of your shoe to someone. It is not a Jewish custom necessarily, but Israel feels enough a part of the Middle East after 60 years to be insulted too. [link]

I’m going to take a wild guess that it doesn’t take much to insult the Israelis where Obama is concerned. Remember that video I posted of a few drunken Israeli kids hurling racial epithets and insults at the president?

    Sandra that’s how the bulk of Israeli’s feel about Black people period. The only reason they bring immigrants and especially Africans to their stolen land is to bolster their numbers which still don’t out do the Palestinians.

    I’m not surprised the US has coddled them and based their entire foreign policy around Israel so if something doesn’t go their way don’t they have every right to protest and call him a nig#ger after all, didn’t we do the spoiling?

    We’re more mad about the fact that they maim, bust shots in babies head, and rain down illegal substances in the form of bombs on the Palestinian people and get away with it.
