RE: Wife of Israeli Interior Minister: Obama is black and weak
I'm far from PC and while the statement doesn't offend me, it is racist by today's standards. She's conspicuously pointing out his race in a statement that is not meant to be flattering. If someone called her a bastard, it would be insulting. If someone called her a Jew bastard, I think consensus would be that it would be anti-Semitic.

yes, and if you dont understand why, and how it is different from the obama joke, then i cant help you.

someone of the OG thinks the obama one isn't racist but the BIBI one is

I'd say in the context of Netanyahu's reputation of being cheap (see: http://www.haaretz.com/news/israel/.premium-1.642989 )

it's a fair point - or at least by the logic that bringing up a person's race during an insult isn't racist.

I imagine a more recognizable analogy here would be something like:
Quote:"Do u you know what Benjamin Nentayahu is? Jewish and a warmonger."

- Warren Jewell (Husband of the U.S. Secretary of the Interior)

Of course, that would be describing Obama as well.

Indeed, this would get someone put in jail in many countries, due to legislation pushed through by Jewish pressure no less. That makes it interesting whenever a relevant figure in the Jewish political world seeks to hurt someone's feelings by inserting mention of their race alongside an insult.
