Jews Love Chinese So Much
Jews love China so much as they love dog shits, as the only Israeli Olympic medalist described to a Jewish newspaper Yediot Ahronot Daily during an interview on Friday Sept 5, 2008 after returning from Beijing.
Israeli windsurfing bronze medalist Shahar Zubari told the Jewish newspaper that Chinese are "dog shits". He said "After a month and a half I couldn't look at Chinese people any more," and that "their traditions are bizarre and even their speech is weird," he said, adding, "I also don't like their food."
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert called Zubari to congratulate his courage, and said his comment 'brings tears of joy to Israel."
The Chinese embassy in Tel Aviv holds an reception to honor the Israeli Olympic Team as planned. They had no comment on the incident, when approached by reporters. The ambassador Zhao Jun, however, assured concerned Chinese readers that he had received a letter from the Israeli Sport and Culture Minister Galeb Majadle, saying that the Minister enjoyed his stay in Beijing during the Olympic Games.
Shahar Subari is born a Jew, and a member of the Israeli Army (IDF). His Olympic trip is sponsored by the IDF. Yediot Ahronot Daily enjoys a legal monopoly status as the dominant Hebrew newspaper in Israel with more than 50% market share.
