(Yeah, such an 'apartheid' 'racist' state) -
The Israel Navy's new commander is of Chinese descent, a first for the military top brass in the Jewish state. -
Admiral Eli Marom -- nicknamed "Chiney" -- took over as navy chief this month after his predecessor, David Ben-Bassat, quit amid criticism of his conduct during the Lebanon war. -
Marom's mother was a member of the Chinese Jewish community, born to a local man and a Russian emigre woman. She married Marom's father after he fled his native Germany for China during World War Two. In 1955, the couple moved to Israel, where Marom was born. -
Marom's asiatic appearance may have helped him advance in the Israel Navy. -
"The fact that Chiney looked different forced him constantly to show that he was better. He became one of the very best very quickly," one former comrade told the weekend Yediot Acharonot, which ran a profile of the new admiral. -
Marom, 52, trained as an engineer and ascended through the ranks, overseeing major naval operations such as the 2002 capture of an Iranian-supplied weapons ship en route to Gaza.
LOL, what a nickname!
Don’t tell the New York Times.
I sure wish these people would explain the real reason for the USS Libery attack so I could understand it before I die.
I wonder, just how many Christians are officers in the Israeli armed forces?
Sorry......it's the truth.
US Jewish military guys would never be called "Jeweys".....!
There is a reason that George Washington spoke of not having "entangling alliances" with other countries. He was a lot wiser than anyone that has led us in the past 100 years or so.
Yeah and if the called him “Irish”, a common nickname, that would be “Racist” too?
It’s already been explained by me - last time ENDING it and Stuffing the Other Israel and Jew-Haters Here:
(see my posts previous in that string as well)
anything else?... just ring me.
There’s no doubt about the Jewish half. That’s NOT a Chinese nose.
I’m guessing no shrimp fried rice for Chiney.
LOL......now remember the trouble Halle Berry just got into.......:)
Chicken Soup is Chicken Soup.
Wontons or Matzoh balls, no matter, - the key to prosperity and health.
“Simply the fact that they repeatedly point out that the man is chinese and call him Chiney, makes them be a racist society. “
Only in a Liberals wet dream. You have been bitten by the PC bug.
