Radio Host Denigrates Sefardim: Place Chicken Leg On Your Head

3

Army Radio suspended its film critic Gidi Orsher after he branded Israel’s traditional Sefardim as primitives in a hate filled Facebook diatribe.

“To all you Zavids and Kachlons, Shasniks on the one side and Orientals on the other, and all you professional Oriental whiners: the next time you have a heart attack, skip the catheterization and place a chicken leg over your head, your old wives’ remedy,” he wrote. “The next time you huddle in a secure room when missiles are falling on your heads, ignore the Iron Dome and recite Tehillim or wait for Sarah Imeinu to protect you.”

“I ordered the head of Army Radio to immediately fire Gidi Orsher,” Culture Minister Miri Regev said, noting that Orsher was one of a group of elitists who derided every culture except their own at the opening of a film festival last week.

Shas Chairman Aryeh Deri, Education Minister Naftali Bennett, Opposition Leader Isaac Herzog and others also joined a chorus of protest.

“The severe remarks publicized by Army Radio’s film critic which blatantly and disgracefully defame Sefardi Jews are reprehensible,” Prime Minister Netanyahu wrote on Facebook. “A man with dark racial biases like these has no place in public broadcasting in Israel. In contrast to the voices trying to sow discord among us, we must work together for the unity of the Israeli people.”

  1. Judge him as toeivah with a smile. He has no good faith for Israel of course, but his values are so slight that no value of even a good chicken held over his head will atone for his sin.

    Scary, but the toeivah society is so fierce for just the idea of hate just to play hope into lost value and hard society. Hate of the orthodox is too common place for a good mood just by the pennies they collect for their own charity.

    Shame men.

    Coded Torah is always protecting Torah. Its a joke to see this guy, but he is in fact in the code somewhere too. Can we be with such protection that this guy is still on the radio. Scary.

  3. He said “chicken leg” and not “CHILDREN leg”. As for the pious fools who don’t quite understand the cardiosurgery department, I hope there are none left in our days, and if there were any, their rabbi should explain them the medical state of the art. Whether they are Askhenazi ignorants or Sefardi ignorants makes no difference.
