Censored in Israel?

Maybe I’m misguided, but I couldn’t find a mention of the embarrassing ambassador in any of the Israeli news sites nor in their archives.

    I heard it on the radio a couple of times but havent really seen in neither on the tv nor in internet sites…

    Funny, cause it made headlines all over the world…

    btw, its really fun to see the headline guys having a blast with this story:
    “Diplomat stripped of post”
    “Envoy couldn’t work out the kinks”
    “Ambassador bound to get boot”
    “Undiplomatic ties cost drunk ambassador his job”
    “Who’s been a naughty ambassador then?”

    Haaretz (Yesterday), All over the 11th page…
    I didn’t believe something would be more embarrassing than this fiasco: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eliahu_Ben-Elisar

    i dont watch the news n’stuff (i’d rather waste my time on more fun tv), but i do recall running into it on some of the major news websites. here’s at least one link for you: http://www.nrg.co.il/online/1/ART1/555/061.html

    Adam – What happened with Ben Elisar?

    Sharon – Thanks, now I know why I couldn’t find it. I was looking for it by his name (צוריאל רפאל) which they have ‘neglected’ to mention, and by the country’s name in a different spelling- ‘אל סלוודור’.

    Amit – The newsdesk editors had a blast all over the world with this one ;-)

  7. Sharon Says:

    yeah, they didn’t mention him by name (for semi-obvious reason, i suppose, such as Israeli media’s hypocrisy…)

  8. Tal Rotbart Says:

    It was funny how many commenters in Ynet and Nrg were -aching- to know his name ;-)

    He (allegedly, of course… :-) ) died in a small hotel room with a companion not being his legal wife. Try google for the juicier details.
