ISRAELI TWITTER-GATE? Wife of Interior Minister under fire for alleged “racist” tweet she made about Obama


Judy Shalom Nir Mozes, a well known face on Israeli TV and the wife of the country’s interior minister Silvan Shalom, quickly deleted the offending tweet – but it was too late to avoid mounting criticism after it immediately made headlines in Israel. Apparently, Mozes has apologized: “I apologize, that was a stupid joke somebody told me.”
What she should have done was to post a follow-up tweet, saying “It isn’t the color of Obama’s skin that’s the problem, it’s the thinness of it.”
