What's Happening In Your World

Israeli Army’s Social Media Director Poses as Obama in Blackface

The head of the IDF’s social media unit, lieutenant Sacha Dratwa, enjoys more than Twitter and Facebook. Apparently, he’s also into some good ‘ol fashioned Jim Crow styled blackface as well.

Yesterday, a photo began circulating of the social media guru with sand smeared on his face with the caption, “Obama style.” The photo was actually uploaded on September 29th, but the photo only began circulating after Gawker ran a story on Dratwa, increasing his international profile.

The Gawker story describes Dratwa:

Sacha Dratwa enjoys some very normal things: macchiatos, swimming, vodka,hanging out with friends. You can see it right on his Facebook profile. But unlike most Facebook folks, this guy runs Israel’s Internet propaganda war machine.

After social media guru’s  profile was published,  Al-Akhbar English was the first outlet to publish the “blackface” photo of Dratwa.

Dratwa’s behavior may come as a shock to some, but it shouldn’t. There have been indications in the past that a number of Israelis harbor racist views toward black and brown people.

In June of this year, Israel began a massive deportation of African migrants who said they were treated “like animals” during the process.

“They fired all the people, so they decided to leave,” Michael Bazia, 45, a Sudanese community leader in Arad, said. “They treat us like animals so we have no choice but to go back.”

Before the African migrants were rounded up, Israeli protesters had begun attacking them in the streets with rocks and sticks. One Israeli official even went so far as to call the immigrants a “cancer” to their society.

  1. Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.
    Any recommendations?

  2. (Daniel) Zionist terror organizations have been vilifying our President for a long time. This is no surprise. Free Palestine! End Israel's racist apartheid regime!

  3. Lol @ the comments from Mohammedans, especially Arab as if Arabs are such fighters of racial equality towards black people. Try to outrun your slave history and racism against blacks all you like, Mohammedans. Your concern overt this issues is phony. Jews are not ignorant to unaware of this racial aspect of history in America. This pix with the caption is racist and disgusting denials are pathetic. If one is racist own up to it instead of hiding cowardly. A poster mentioned this Israeli activist is from Russia, and apparently most Russians are xenophobic, and while that may be the case, they’re not excluded from criticism regarding offensive racism.

  4. Don't forget people, this is where your tax dollars are going.
    With respect…Wiremu

  5. So what do we have here? One Israeli guy put mud on his face like a few other millions who ever visited the Dead Sea (it's healthy) and wrote "Obama Style" (reference to "Gangnam Style", that annoying song you hear everywhere these days). Then we have a few dozens of people here and probably a few millions in other places, who reach conclusions from this picture and see it as a proof for their bigotry, and then start lashing out against the Jews that they are racist, control the world, enslave blacks and what not.
    And I ask you what is worst, one guy putting mud on his face, or a few dozens of racists and bigots inciting against an entire people?

  6. What black people should also in fact be concerned about is long term unemployment and the negative economic status of African Americans being far worse than what is being reported by white-owned mainstream media organizations and the fact that African Americans with and without higher education are deliberately not being hired for available jobs having nothing to do with their skills or education, are deliberately being discriminated against by the vast majority of America’s employers who are white and overwhelmingly white Jews who are primarily hiring other white Jews, white gentiles, and non-black minorities (Latinos and Asians) first and, in many cases more often than not, exclusively.

    The economic and social conditions in America for African Americans, for blacks in Africa, and poor people worldwide are going to get far, far worse than most can even begin to imagine and all are sitting ducks. Equally important is the fact of all white Jewish Americans’ highly useful black pawns including 1/2 white Barack Obama, 1/2 white Benjamin Jealous, high white-blooded Marc Morial, 1/2 white young turk master politician Newark, NJ Mayor wannabe Govenor Cory Booker, the 1/2 white Lt. Govenor of MD, the former 1/2 white D.C. Mayor Fenty thank-God-blacks-got-rid-of-him-but-way-too-late, and also other 1/2 white/black and non-biracial black politicians in America nor the Congressional Black Caucus. None of them are going to do anything at all tangible to stop or reverse the fast upcoming onslaught of deliberately escalated out of upper-income, middle-income and working-class into huge new black poverty populations joining pre-existing black poverty in America rife with anger that will become deep depression, despair, fury, poor health, sickness, riots, and ultimately blood in the streets, death, and mass incarcerations. The America government and big corporations have for a while been quitely and rapidly building more prisons in great anticipation of them being filled with hordes of angry and riotous new and pre-existing long term unemployed, revolutionary, radical and poor people. The USA government, which is filled with huge numbers of white Jews in high positions of power and authority is also quitely preparing long ago previously closed military bases and other human hold locations such as numerous “FEMA” internment camps.

    Why will black politicians nationwide not do anything? Because they really have no real power and can’t and if they actually seriously tried to do anything that would effectively and rapidly stimulate business development and jobs for African Americans and black immigrants, they and members of their families will very quickly be investigated, hounded, scandalized, bounced, unemployed, blacklisted, bombed, and nullified in every which way either banged six-feet into the ground or also fast into the upcoming deliberate sunami of escalated new and massively increased black poverty. Ditto for the white structures’ labeled and so-called “Black Elite” who are overwhelmingly in partnership with white Jewish Americans and willingly do their bidding to the detriment of the Black Race in America and elsewhere. So, black politicians perform just enough believable lip service and window-dressing to appear as though they are working hard, can, and will achieve valuable tangible, if not priority results, for the people. And, the “Black Elite” overwhelmingly don’t even think to dare try in any either any believeable fake nor any effective or measurable way at all.

    Black politicians and the so-called “Black Elite” are not in charge. They know it, those who are in charge know it, and the only ones who do not realize it are way too many millions of black people in America, Carribean, and Africa. Most black people also have no real idea of who is really running America and the world, all and who they own nationwide and worldwide, what it is they are deliberately working to make happen, why, how, and when regarding within a specific timeframe.

    Black people have no clue of what the long game plan really is nor understand that black politicians are overwhelmingly going along to get along hoping to be allowed to do what little they can and that they and their families will be spared and many are puppets of rich white Jews. Also, non-politician “Black Elite” are overwhelmingly and undeniably henchmen and henchwomen puppets of rich white Jews.

    Who runs the world and controls world commerce, affairs, and the leaders of all world nations? Principally supernatural powers of evil together with the human Bilderberg Group, The Vatican, U.S. Council of Foreign Relations, and Trilateral Commission followed by back-up from their boys/girls of USDOJ CIA/FBI, USDoD, NATO, World Bank, International Monetary Fund, Federal Reserve Bank, Wall Street, largest American and international corporations worldwide, and the richest people in the world.

    The vast majority of black people in America and Africa are not paying any attention to the strategic tactics completely detrimental to their prosperity and basic survival long underway and much that is quite visible right in front of them. There are two places in America of several in America and Europe that black people who can should visit and see to achieve if not full quick understanding of the long game plan in a nutshell certainly way more than a mere inkling of what it really is all about. The plan for both continued and escalated elimination and subjugation of black people in America, Carribean, and Africa is now and always been widescale.

    Black people in America, Carribean, and Africa are easily oppressed because they believe whatever the overwhelmingly white-controlled USA government, politicians, big business, education system, judicial system, banks, media organizations, television programs, movies, music, and advertisement industries want them to believe. Take a quick trip to visit, see, and thoroughly read “The Georgia Guidestones” in Elberton, Georgia. Next, go and visit the Denver Airport and spend time thoroughly viewing the massive wall art murals throughout and also see the symbols on the marble floors. Then, research and fully read about The Committee of 300, High Knights and Knights of Malta, Knights of Columbus, and Protocols of The Learned Elders of Zion.

    Also, understand that HIV/AIDs was in fact deliberately created by white Jewish American and European scientists and deliberately introduced by them into Africa and America specifically to genocidedly wipe out and reduce the Black Race population (Read Dr. Francis Cress Welsing’ book The Isis Papers), which I knew long before reading Dr. Welsing’ book. Also, understand that rich white American government and private sector leaders together with those in European countries and their huge corporations are again carving up and re-colonizing Africa following covert daily wiping out of millions of African people via HIV/AIDs coupled with U.S./NATO/Europe led deliberate destruction and destabilization of the African Union (uniting of all African state countries) movement by the leaders of 54 African countries to create a united Africa deliberately disturbed and shaken up via U.S./NATO/Europe paid instigation of false civil uprising in and bombing of oil rich Libya specifically to take out and murder Qadaffi who strongly fully supported, participated in, and financially supported the African Union and via paid instigation of tribal civil war genocide in Rawada and Sudan, paid economic and civil destabilization, paid subversions, and paid false civil uprisings in Somolia, Congo, Mali, Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, Bahrain, Syria and so on, paid support and installations of certain politicians as leaders of key African countries and not for the benefit of the people of those countries, and the installation of AFRICOM (U.S. and European military bases) in Africa.

    The same goes on in Black America in numerous ways ranging from via white America’s daily delivery of white supremacy subliminal and overt psychological warfare indoctrination of white domination and superiority beginning with public school education of black children daily taught about white American and European history of leaders, conquorers, european domination of black people as slaves and up from slavery to white America’s financial and political control of the public school education system regarding curriculums, what subjects / levels of courses taught, and education materials available, control of available employment and hiring, control of military and genocidal science chemical, viral, and bacterial biological warfare programs, control of judicial system, law enforcement, banks, media organizations, entertainment industry, advertising, food/health/medicine industries, control of illegal drugs and alcohol, and control of the prison industrial complex in tight partnership Europe/Vatican/Bilderberg Group.

    How can any black person on earth ignore and fail to realize that the mandated regular annual and daily deliberate and quite thoroughly partial history teaching of black peoples’ history exclusively as enslavement, subjugation, domination, elimination, and discrimation by whites institutionalized in public schools and white colleges and universities throughout America does not psychologically and negatively impact and affect the minds black children and adults of the Black Race long term, if not life-long?

    The omission of true historical knowledge about Africa and African Americans’ African ancestors’ true ancient history in Africa, Europe, America, and worldwide deliberately never taught to black students via America’s public and higher education systems is absolutely by deliberate design, psychological mind control, undeniably damaging, and needs urgent attention recognition and also immediate change by black parents and black public school educators nationwide. Whites have ensured no mandated general or thorough teaching provided within basic public school and college curriculums about the continent of Africa and her accurate ancient history to which European knowledge and development across the board is directly tied and ensured Africa is historically irrevelant and does not exist just as if her black people are also irrevelant and have not massively contributed to the great knowledge and wealth of European, American, and world civilization. Black children historically in America have and continue to be been taught in school all about the evolution and exploits of white America and Europe and nothing about Africa regarding any historical truth or thorough knowledge as if the huge continent of Africa does not exist.

    The lack of true and thorough historical knowledge of self and deliberate cover up and deceit about such of tremendous great importance is truly where the real problems of black children, adults, families, and lack of black unification really begins and from which all other negative, destructive psychological emotions, behaviors, actions flow. If the vast majority of black urban public school students in America when asked are able accurately name three or more states in America, name three or more countries in Europe, even name three or more countries in South America, name foods and meals indiginous to these continents, and they and their parents are both hard pressed and unable to name one let alone three countries in Africa and are also unable to name one foods or meals indiginous to the continent and certain countries of Africa, what does this tell you?

    It tells you that black students are deliberately not being taught the incredible wealth of true accurate knowledge about ancient, past, or present Africa nor about their African ancestors. But they are taught history of white European English-Americans, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and the Greeks, Romans, and so on to ensure they exclusively view the history of blacks and their ancestors principally only as former African slaves, up from slavery, and Africa as a backward jungle filled with ignorant black savages dominated and overtaken by whites superior to them.

    Any race of people not knowing their own true history or roots is a race of people easily degraded, indoctrinated, deceived, confused, self-hating, infiltrated, divided, diluted, forever largely overwhelmed, overtaken, and suspended in an idle twilight zone of ignorance to be easily daily conquored and destroyed en mass. They will fall for just about anything from and also entirely believe their oppressors, have weak and easily penenatrable moral convictions, be largely extremely fearful, will not stand up risking their lives to effectively fight against their oppressors, will remain under oppression, and will either self-destruct or join oppressors of black people in harming them en mass, targeted, or both.

    As for what Black American and Black Africa ought to do, but far too many millions likely will not to save and reverse en mass troubles and decline of every kind is to first return to and rapidly learn and live the Word of Almighty God in obedience and in daily pray to Him asking for His mercy, guidance, and protection. Second, to rapidly unite together in active moral, spiritual, social and economic solidarity to actively plan survival and prosperity by any means necessary and acceptable to Almighty God and also regularily and consistantly identify and ostracize all internal and external enemies of the Black Race. And third, to rapidly spread as much important knowledge and survival guidance and help if possible to as many other black people in America, Carribean, and in Africa as humanly possible. Last, black people need to and should also know as well that the only unbought, unbent, strongest, unafraid, and worthy spiritual and moral leader of black people in America always speaking truth to change that more black people listen to and overwhelmingly support en mass is Minister Louis Farrakhan.

    Peace!

    I am so relieved to read the many comments about this being about dead sea mud and just normal fun and games. For a moment I thought that Jews were criticizing a fellow Jew. Such a relief.

  8. Satanic Jews Who own us & have betrayed all of Humanity & Killed all the Prophets including Jesus(Isa) Go read Revelations Beware of the the one who calls himself a Jew,for He is not He is of the Synaguage of Satan! Jesus of Nazareth called them Devils too,He asked them were they ever in Bondage in Egypt & the Jews replied that we have never been Bound to no one! Jesus then told them you are of your Father the Devil & the Lust of his heart ye will Do! Prophet Isa (Jesus) was a Blackman & His Mother was an Blackwoman from Ancient Egypt remember he rode back into Jerusalem on an Ass coming from Egypt! So Mr Muhammad was not the only one to Recognize Satan when he saw Him lol and to you BlackAnglos we are the Children of Israel ! Because they own us me & You! Always have of denotes ownership LMAO wake-up & get some sense in ya Head!

  10. The picture was childish but the response was also childish and stupidly PC. Denying a physical feature of someone to parity them is not right. No one got upset about people making fun of Prince Charles big ears. President Obama is a black man and Former president Bush looked like a monkey.

  11. Agree with Eric26-if we stopped generalizing religions and stopped merging it with race-(the two are very separate things)
    then people wouldn’t fear publicizing and condemning all acts of racism by whoever without the fear of being labeled as one, simply for criticizing deplorable acts by someone of another background

  12. History says that Jews were throughtout all of Europe during Hitler and the Nazi sweep leading up to WW II. After being baked in ovens, tortured, raped and experimented on they were saved by the Allied Invasion. They were placed in Israel in 1948 by the UN saying that biblically that is where they belong. For any of them to be racist toward blacks when their holacaust was no more of a devastation than ours is absurd. They call Farrahkan anti-semetic, who has never tortured or killed anyone,then tell me what was Hitler and the German European white people?

  13. Guys, listen to yourselves. No race is “bad”. I’ve seen people insult Arab, Jewish and white people in the comments for absolutely no reason (there is never a reason to insult a race of people!).
    Hatred has no place in our society or in our hearts.

  14. The article on this guy is a complete non-story of his visit to the dead sea, however these videos aren’t(BELOW) and should be the reason behind this article, not jumping to conclusions about what he may have meant by Obama style-not all Jews are racist, just like any other groups in society, we should condemn individuals and not generalise…

    Then there are the good ones who do counter protest and make videos like these, there were plenty of Jews protesting against the war in Gaza in Tel-aviv, shame the good work ppl do never gets publicity.

    jews also ran most of the slave trade 80% of slave owners were jews

  16. Please correct the record: Al Akhbar English published the picture. Gawker omitted it entirely and wrote about all the other pictures on the Israeli army guy's profile. It's an outrage.

  17. This article misrepresents what happened: The Beirut-based Al Akhbar English published the photo in an article here: http://english.al-akhbar.com/blogs/barack-obama/israeli-army-social-media-guru-poses-obama-brownface. While "curiously, Gawker ran a story about Dratwa's public Facebook presence only yesterday featuring his photos – but omitted any reference to the brownface Obama one." The author of the Gawker piece ignored repeated questions on Twitter as to how he ran a story about the "mundane" Facebook profile of the Israeli army social media chief without mentioning the brownface picture (which was the 4th picture down on the guy's profile.) Gawker also removed comments on the article by Al Akhbar staff on their site asking why they ignored the picture.

  18. Israel does not have the same history as the US with race relations so you can't use that to define what's going on in the picture above. Israel doesn't have a history of using black face in any negative way. So to use our context in their country doesn't make sense. They don't have a history of prejudice towards black people and have a huge population of Ethiopian Jews that assimilated into the culture with no large scale prejudice, I can't speak for individuals. But they received the same programming and services, if not more so, than anyone else that is immigrating into their country. I doubt highly this was done as an offensive racist stance and instead is using our understanding of black face on to another culture.

  19. Hey idiots who think this is just a smear and that its all good because he's at the black sea, the cap that he posted says "obama style." It's racist. Stop defending him.

  20. Actually, this guy is an immigrant from Russia, not an Israeli born citizen, AFAIK.

    Israel had a huge immigration wave coming over in the 80s and 90s. Many of them are right-wing, extreem and very racist. Some of you might know Avigdor Liberman – one of the most hated politicians, and one of the most dangerous and corrupt politicians we’ve ever had.

    Russians seem to be racist not just toward black people, but anyone else not Russian. A very extreme case of inferiority complex, IMHO, as for most Israelis, being russian means you’re either a slut, or a gangster.

    This created a very explosive social condition, which changed the face of Israel (who used to be 50% easter european, and 50% north african and asians jews), and led to never seen before phenomenas like this one.

    As an Israeli, I’am ashamed, but the wording of this article are really far from reality, and uninformed.

  21. I guarantee you this author would face human rights abuses if he/she went to the palestinian territories but would be treated like a free and intelligent person if he/she went into israel, the people who criticize israel the most would likely be shot in the head by the average palestinian for having liberal views.

  22. the people who were deported entered the country illegally…this article makes it sound like it was a deportation targeting african migrants, it was a deportation targeting people who illegally entered the country.."a number of israelis harbor racist views"?, haha what's the number, very small number, the united states has racist people too but I wouldn't characterize the u.s. as a racist country, very sad when people overly criticize israel and the u.s. when those two countries support immigrants and respect human rights more than 99 percent of the countries in the world.

  23. thousands of africans emigrate to israel every year to find jobs and worship freely which they werent able to do in their native countries, they even serve in the military and get a first rate education in israeli universities, wtf is dr boyce talking about?

  24. The author really needs to get a education. Please note that this picture shows Dratwa at the Dead Sea, where _everybody_ smears mud on their faces and all over their bodies, for that matter. There is no significance to this activity except the desire for skin health benefits. In the rush to paint Dratwa as a racist, the author has sunk to below Sea Level.

    • some of these articles lack research and lack seriousness, i was honestly embarrassed when i was reading this article and not embarrassed by the israeli but embarrassed by the author and the author's message…i gaurantee you this author would face human rights abuses if he/she went to the palestinian territories but would be treated like a free and intelligent person if he/she went into israel, the ppl who criticize israel the most would likely be shot in the head by the average palestinian for having liberal views

    • Not everyone who goes to the Dead Sea is racist and writes "Obama style" next to a picture of them covered in mud. Don't try to cover up the racism of this pic. It's obvious and just makes you look oblivious!

    • I went to the dead sea and covered myself in mud. But not once did I take a picture and say 'Obama style' or reference any black characters. Nor did it ever occur to me, so please stop insinuating that's what people at the Dead Sea do, characterize themselves as black people.

  25. I am sorry to put it out to you folks but you are so pathetic it is just sad.

    What exactly is racist in having one, after putting mud on his face and body for skin care to note his own picture does remind of president Obama and then tweeting about it?

    Only persons who really care about skin color to a point where they think it should matter can see this harmless tweet as racist.

    >> There have been indications in the past that a number of Israelis harbor racist views toward black and brown people.

    Sure, they are some racist views harbored by some people in Israel as in just any other state in the world (there are also some murderers, thieves, housewives, doctors but no elves).

    Israel is a melting pot of people coming from many cultures and races sharing (for the most part) the common of being part of the Jewish People.

    Naturally, there are tensions between newcomers and the rest. It has to do with language, culture differences, education level and other issues. It takes at least a generation for newcomers to be fully absorbed. Be it newcomers from Poland, Romania, Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Russia, Ethiopia or any other location. Everyone makes jokes about the other and while an outsider will call them racist jokes (in the ‘politically correct’ regime) we in Israel enjoy them, including the ones on our own ‘origin’ – this is humor used to ease pain, not to cause one).

    Israel is a model for a non-racist country, similar to the US. Compare it with Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and others to get the idea.

    Last thing – sadly, there is one minor community in Israel where there is definitely racism and that is the Ultra Orthodox Jews living in their ghetos and mixing with no one – not many want to mix with them but the Sefaradic Ultra Orthodox Jews want to mix with them and they do feel real racist attitudes.

  26. You are taking it too far,
    Israel is a democratic an non-racist country, don't let some stupid people who are living in israel confuse you.
    And that israeli official is the most uneducated stupid minister, so I wouldn't reference it.

    • Not democratic for Palestinians, African migrants, Arab Jews, etc… Israel is an apartheid state. Desmond Tutu said it!

    • This is false, you should check the facts before falsely accusing:
      1. we have Arab Representative in knesset, and they have influence over decision making in israel
      2. See the difference between gaza and west bank, who lives better life? yes, its the west bank who is not occupied by a terrorist group
      3. Ask any arab jew, he will tell you that he prefers living in the free israel and not in a muslim country
      http://www.timesofisrael.com/arabs-prefer-living-in-israel-sampling-shows/
      4. Why do african migrants choose only to go to israel? and not any other countries? they have better life in israel than in their home countries.
      5. please check the definition of apartheid, you probably have no idea what does it mean.

      to conclude it, israel is the only democratic state in the middle east, any person can be anything.
      i have several good arab friends, who work in decent jobs, and are treated equally,
      think for yourself, will this still be true if i jew would live in a muslim country? yep, you know the answer.

    • Can an Arab become Prime Minister of Israel?

    • If he/she is elected, yes. There are currently 17 Arab members in the Israeli parliament.

  27. I do not consider this racist or offensive, in fact, I do not get offended by most things that cause Americans to run around like headless chickens shoving their political correctness left and right. What offends me is their pretentious sensitivity. And that's not sand, by the way.

  28. What is this Bull_shit? the guy only wrote "Obamma style face" to his photo….who you are working for guys? do you support the arabisation of the middle east just because some of you are got islamized? how can you forget so easily that the biggest slave labors in the history was arabians? you don't even know your own history SHAME ON YOU this guy is a great guy and you pooooooor liars and arabian propoganda agents.

    • He wrote "Obama style" the same way people did blackface in the Jim Crow era in the south. Even if his history in Israel doesn't match the history of other countries, it's still racist against blacks. Also, the "arabisation of the middle east" makes no sense. I can tell you're an uneducated racist because of your spelling and your lack of knowledge, like the Middle East is mostly made up of Arabs since forever. That's where Arabs come from. It's like saying the asianing of china. See how you sound like a moron in comparison?

      So shame on you, BS propaganda bigot that has no interest in spelling, grammar, or facts. Also, if you know him personally as a "great guy" why did you not condemn his photo when he first posted it?

  29. This looks remarkably like thousands of photos you see of Israelis and tourists enjoying the mud baths at the Dead Sea where one smears their whole body in mud full of minerals and nutrients. You can even make out people floating on the salt water of the Sea in the background. Is this true or another anti-IDF smear campaign to increase unfounded hatred of Israeli Jews for protecting themselves from terror. As to the issue of the illegal African immigrants, without getting into detail there is a lot more to the story than is quoted here.

    • And please read how he confirms this as a total smear campaign by those who clearly are pro-terror propagandists .. for them to think of using this to incite hatred clearly shows them as the racists here https://www.facebook.com/sacha.dratwa/posts/4334188591290

    • Are you high on white phosphorus fumes? The caption of the photo wasn't "mud bath in the Dead Sea", it was "Obama style". You have to be a real schmuck to not understand the connotations of blackface. That's excusable for some paid internet troll such as yourself, but not for…wait, I guess that's Sacha Dratwa's job description too!

      I hope for your sake that your Hasbara is paid by the day, not by the tweet. You're terrible.

    • I don't know what is more mronic. The article or the comments. He is obviously at the dead sea and it's not a slur to pay homage to the US most famous African American. There is so much blatant racism against Obama all over the web and on facebook.This is merely an attempt to incite anti Israel sentiment in the African American community.

    • Paying homage? You just up the moronic comment count.

    • Jonathan Ross At the point he uploaded the photo and wrote 'Obama Style' It showed he is a slimy racist. Note also Israels Apartheid Racist policies and you get the picture… Dont you?

    • Daniel Dušek Wilkes

      Yeah, he's a the Dead Sea and that would have been fine if he didn't ~explicitly make a reference to blackface in the image description~ which is kind of the whole reason this is a big deal.

      The guy has said and done racist stuff and, when taken to task, is claiming he's "not a racist" instead of apologizing, in the proud tradition of racists everywhere. Nothing new here.

    • I was going to ask if you are stupid or just a troublemaker. Looking at your idiotic self-portrait, I realize it is the former.

  30. Correction – of, muthas

  31. @ silver. .I was at the Black expo in Indianapolis a few years ago and I had the pleasure of meeting some true Ethiopian Hebrews and they had migrated to Israel in the 90s According to their accounts, they are treated like shit! They make them live in areas of the country that are somewhat barren and restrict any travel between them between the two countries. According to them, the white Jews in Israel think all Africans are ill with HIV. This is not a lie because others I have met from Ethiopia have told me this. Why is this important? Because if the blood line of Halle Selassie and The Queen of Sheeba. If u r Hebrew u r suppose to be able reside in Israel because of birthrite , but African Jews are not looked at this way. ..Those Askenazi and Khazarian myths are pure racist and they are the true terrorist! ! Hotep

  32. *IMPORTANT: I DO NOT CONDONE THE CAPTION THIS GUY POSTED WITH THIS IMAGE!!!*

    But… I just want to point out one thing:

    I visited Israel on a holiday in 2010 and (of course) I went to the Dead Sea. Along the shoreline there is all the soft mud that you put on your skin – salons use it for facials and body treatments. Naturally, I partook of the activity and slimed myself from head to toe in the stuff. (I promptly broke out in a rash the next day. Not good.) I probably looked ridiculous, and if I didn’t care about ruining my camera, I might have asked my boyfriend to take my picture looking ridiculous. It wouldn’t have been blackface, it would’ve been “Look at all the mud I’m in!”

    The reason I mention that is just to point out that this wasn’t a case of premeditated douchebaggery — i.e. he most likely put the mud on his face for the reasons I mentioned, and then the caption just came *naturally* to him. (Because he’s a racist). I just wanted to clarify that it’s not like he brought boot-black with him to the beach in order to do this.

    He’s till a racist douchebag, no mistake about it. But he an opportunistic, haphazard racist douchebag rather than a pre-planning one, in this instance.

    • ETA: I swear I read the article 3 times and missed the mention of “sand” every time.

      But my earlier comment is still relevant because I’m pointing out that you’re meant to put that mud on your face as a skin treatment (it’s most definitely not “sand” – it’s very soft, slick mud).

      So the “Obama” part is probably something that occurred to him after he put it on (maybe even after he saw the picture.)

      Again: I’m not excusing it, just sharing a little personal experience of the place.

    • What’s the difference? A racist is a racist. Who cares if he did it on a whim or pre planned?

  33. This is sad. The way the Israelis treat the Palestinians is even sadder.

  34. And big South African Jews funded Hitler( Gold and Diamonds ) , that’s the overstory to the movie Inside Man! ! I’m shocked Hollywood let spike and Densely make that movie! Check ..The DeBeers, The Rothschilds, and the Boer War. .Hotep

  35. These are the racist heathens, who are killing Black folks in these Black and brown countries!

    Keep looking up to these demons, and O’Drama, the mulatto, who sends them out to kill Black people.

    THIS IS WHAT THEY THINK OF O’DRAMA, AND BLACK PEOPLE.

  37. Before you get your thong in bunch..what do black Hebrews got to do with this racist pale-face demon……

  38. Before y'all get your panties in a bunch, please read this article about the Black Jews of Israel,……..http://www.greatlinx.com/jericho.htm.

    • And now we forgive them and kiss the white racist but..what's your point

    • There's good and evil, in all cultures, including our's. That's my point.

    • That was a very dumb point… andl don't make sense .pale-face insult all black people and you put up picture of real Hebrew….dumb dumb dumb what's the point again

    • William Looking at your Facebook wall!!!why didn't you just say you support the lying Gypsy Jews????? Because i see now you lied about your point …..

    • William Looking at your Facebook wall!!!why didn't you just say you support the lying Gypsy Jews????? Because i see now you lied about your point …..And i see you very much dislike OBAMA..

    • Yes they live in Jericho and call themselves Palestinian

    • So do you think the guy needs to be let alone, fire, or promoted, William? Please answer the question rather than do the Hasbara deflection routine, my friend.

    • Interesting PROPAGANDA site, William Alston. Especially considering that this blackfaced racist idiot just happens to be a paid propagandist. No thanks!

    • @ Jerry Robertson , All racists come in all colors, and cultures. The fact that you guys wanna take this lieutenant Dratwa's dumb decision to task, is proof that "I can do it but, you better not". And with Obama's shabby treatment of Israel's Prime Minister these past 4 years, I'm surprised that more of this crap haven't happened.

    • I hate to ruin your propaganda link, but Jericho is considered a Palestinian town, not only do the black people in the pictures clearly identify with their Palestinian heritage (wearing the traditional keffiyehs) and if you want a more enriching article on the Black people of Jericho, I suggest you scoop out some articles with original quotes from the Black community itself (here's an article that features one leader in the Black community in Jerusalem http://www.thisweekinpalestine.com/details.php?id=2215&ed=144&edid=144 ). Although the article hilariously lists Beir Zeit and Bethlehem university as Israeli institutions. Lord help us this is one of the biggest fails of propaganda.

      Ironically, they mention the harsh condition they work in the Jordan Valley which is occupied by the Israeli military and restricts access to the agriculture land. My friend, you propaganda link has backfired tremendously.

    • He's a leader & public figure and should not conduct himself in such a racist manner. In the U.S., this person would be publicly terminated. The former president of Harvard made one statement concerning women in education and he was GONE. In Israel, this guy will probably get promoted.

  39. I'm not sure how I feel regarding the relationship America has with Israel but articles like this do give me some insight.

    Really? That is something to think about. Ummm?

  41. Do Not Ever Forget Israel was Supporting the Racist Apartheid South Africa Regime!

    • It's not surprising, when the Talmud tells Jews to kill non-Jews.

    • And the bible says to kills Jews and the Koran says to kill Christians and Jews. How are you possibly shocked that religion has a genocidal undertone?

    • Where exactly does the Bible tell Christians to kill Jews?

    • No, it doesn’t. It says it’s a sin… yet says it’s God who should do the punishing.

    • Anthony Davis is just kind of full of crap

    • Will add… the Quran doesnt say kill Christians and Jews either.

    • please tell me where it says jews are supposed to kill non-jews in any jewish holy text…anthony davis you are a misinformed propagandist

    • Tawdry Hepburn Actually that's inaccurate. Christians & Jews are considered "People of the Book" in Islam, not "infidels". I'm not religious at all btw, but just thought I'd clarify.

    • Tawdry Hepburn — Don't be so cynical. Whether it's the Qu'ran or Bible, the texts are provocative and were written thousands of years ago. They do not parallel issues and traditions of modern society per se and it is without a doubt that one must sacrifice blood in order to fight for the freedom and rights of others. It's the only way these religions exist today. Serving in the military is the same concept. It's not for religious purposes that we have a military and yet, people die and kill to defend the rights and freedom of their people. So, folks have done their fair-share of killing, whether they were religious or not and whether it was for religious purposes or not. We're all human and responsible for our actions, at the end of the day. There is no religion that tells its people that it is legitimate to commit mass murders because frankly, none of us would be alive today.

      The Talmud actually doesn't say that, as it's a living document that includes reinterpretations, most or all of which significantly moderate the content of the original scripture (which is the Torah, which I'm assuming is what you meant when you wrote Talmud). Please don't post ignorant stuff that's not true.

    • Julia Skrsry The Jewish Scribes claim the Talmud is partly a collection of traditions Moses gave them in oral form. These had not yet been written down in Jesus' time. Christ condemned the traditions of the Mishnah (early Talmud) and those who taught it (Scribes and Pharisees), because the Talmud nullifies the teachings of the Holy Bible. However, despite Jesus' condemnation of the traditions of Early Talmud, unfortunately, due to the abysmal ignorance of our day, the widespread "Judeo-Christian" notion is that the Old Testament is the supreme book of Judaism. But this is not so. The Pharisees teach for doctrine the commandments of rabbis, not God.

      Whichever way you look at it and however you react/opine, the fact remains, this video comes from a Jewish Book (Talmud) and being spoken a Jew himself….

      1) If a Jew is tempted to do evil he should go to a city where he is not known and do the evil there. –Moed Kattan 17a

      2) If a heathen (Gentile) hits a Jew, the Gentile must be killed. Hitting a Jew is the same as hitting God. –Sanhedrin 58b

      3) A Jew need not pay a Gentile (“Cuthean”) the wages owed him for work. –Sanhedrin 57a

      4) If a Jew finds an object lost by a Gentile (“heathen”) it does not have to be returned. -Baba Mezia 24a also in Baba Kamma 113b

      5) When a Jew murders a Gentile (“Cuthean”), there will be no death penalty. What a Jew steals from a Gentile he may keep. –Sanhedrin 57a

      6) Gentiles are outside the protection of the law and God has “exposed their money to Israel”. –Baba Kamma 37b

      7) All Gentile children are animals. –Yebamoth 98a

      8) Gentile girls are in a state of niddah (filth) from birth. –Abodah Zarah 36b

      9) Only Jews are human (“Only ye are designated men”). –Baba Kattan 114a-114b

      10) Jews may use lies (“subterfuges”) to circumvent a Gentile. –Baba Kamma 113a and two rabbis:

    • Some religious representatives preach about killing, but niether the Bible(New Testament) nor the Quran condone killing people of different faiths. In fact they call for the opposite.
