Good catch, this news item, Red.
In general stories about mass murder do not glean attention like sex scandals do. I already smell something fishy in Israel. Do you think they learned from us Americans?
Envoy recalled over 'Asian comments'
ISRAEL has recalled its ambassador to Australia to investigate comments he reportedly made on Asians.
Ambassador Naftali Tamir was believed to have been in Singapore on his way to Australia after a short holiday in Israel, when he received instructions to return immediately.
In an interview with the widely circulated daily, Haaretz, last week, Mr Tamir allegedly said Israel and Australia needed to co-operate because they were like sisters in Asia. "We are in Asia without the characteristics of Asians. We don't have yellow skin and slanted eyes. Asia is basically the yellow race. Australia and Israel are not — we are basically the white race," he was quoted as saying.

With two consecutive presidents having such controversies it makes me wonder why the office still exists anyways. The decisions are made by the PM and the Knesset parliament. Why keep an irrelevant office who's occupants can't stay out of trouble.
