Ethiopian Jew Wins Miss Israel Contest
Shmarya Rosenberg • FailedMessiah.com

Yityish Titi Aynaw won the Miss Israel 2013 title Wednesday night, the Times of Israel reported. The 21-year-old resident of Netanya on Israel’s Mediterranean coastline is the first Ethiopian-born contestant to win the title.

Aynaw came to Israel with her family nine years ago. She was entered into the Miss Israel competition by a friend, and has no previous modeling experience.

During the pageant Aynaw said she wants to become a fashion model in order “to change attitudes toward dark-skinned models. I’d love to become the first [Ethiopian] Israeli (TV) host, the Tyra Banks of Israel.”

Me thinks someone has a hard-on for Ethiopians (not that there is anything wrong with it!).

And not only girls!
I think he wants to become the designated Circumcision-sucking-volunteer for the Ethiopian Geirim.

Wow, the anti-semitism in these comments are palpable!

When commenters bash chareidim for misbehavior, they're "antisemites." When other commenters bash Ethiopian Jews because of their race, that's cool because it's so in your face un-PC. What bullshit!

She's a beautiful young lady, just as Bar Rafaelli is a beautiful light skinned young lady. (Mila Kunis ain't bad, either). It's great if Aynaw becomes an ambassador for Israel and her community, but why not just say she is very pretty, full stop?

(That's a rhetorical question. I know very well why some people go batshit crazy every time an African person is mentioned on this blog.)

You do? Enlighten us.

Maybe you're new here, but some commenters here are racist. These same ones are usually hyper-sensitive to perceived antisemitism, which they define as criticism of ultra-Orthodox Jews at all. Whenever the issue is Ethiopian Jews, African-American converts, illegal African migrants, etc., they go ballistic with the racial remarks. When you call them out, they schrei gevalt and cite the usual things about crime, etc., as if one kind of bad behavior justifies another.

Hello! This *IS* an anti-Semitic board!

Thanks & back at ya, YBM.

What's the use of pretty for an Ethiopian Jewish woman in Israel if she doesn't use it as a platform to help her people? And I don't mean dark skinned fashion models.

Isn't Israel a racist state against Ethiopians? How can Miss Israle be an Ethiopian?

Were we fooled into thinking that Israelis are racists?

I wish her all the best and lots of luck!

She sounds to be a beutifully rounded girl,she is really gorgeous , slim and sexy and smart too, good luck MIss TIti

Israel is, ironically (but not "in an ironic way," like a hipster), racist against Arabs. Yet an Arab contestant won Miss Israel, in what was clearly a fix for plurality, as she was fugly.

Cor Blimey, She nice bit of crumpet!

Oh please she's ugly as hell. There are way prettier Israeli girls including much prettier Ethiopian ones. Something tells me the decision had nothing to do with her beauty. Probably someone like Shmarya choosing contestants to be politically correct.

"Was clearly a fix for plurality, as she was fugly."

(Formerly also by Maskil): "C*nt", "Fat c*nt", "These c*nts", "TOTAL c*nts", "C*nt pussy-posse", "Feminazi", "Broads", "Mentally damaged broads", "Deranged women", "Lesbian sodomites"...

You know, Maskil, you continue to have one truly serious misogynistic problem. Was "not good looking" apropos enough to describe her Female appearance?.

Your views of Women and your timed appearance on articles involving them are becoming as predictable as Deremes' ones regarding Black people.

Don't marry, bubbeh, as no female deserves this punishment. If you are, G*d help her. Have offsprings?, hope they are girls, as no boy should have your fatherly wisdom inculcated on them. =P

it is getting uglier all the time!
we are witnessing in our age the transformation of rightist orthodox jewry into dirtier people than what we thought is the exclusive domain of bayou wasps.

must have taken some effort to create a blog name so original for himself.
makes one wonder if it is really a guy.
but honest, does him or even his mom look any better?

Wonderful that she won and may she use this success to good for others.

Bob, the term "fugly" applies to all genders. I remember the pictures from 1999. The local Arabs (the ones considered Palestinian, even when Israeli, as opposed to Druze and Reconsructionist (or whatever they're called)) can be easily spotted as falling into two groups: The well-to-do ones, who are usually strikingly good looking (at least the women), and the ones that are not so good looking (even when they do have financial means). I don't live in their culture but the two groups don't seem to intermarry.

But after a Google search, I see that the Arab Miss Israel of 1999, while she might not fit "right in" to the first group, must have been caught at a bad angle in the pictures that were used when she won (yes, like most people she has good and bad angles), but I failed to find any picture that was like the one on JPost in '99. She's actually quite beautiful, so I retract my statement. Nevertheless, given the overt racism towards Arabs here, I'm still completely certain it was a fix. I don't feel this way about the current victor (although it may have been - they do love their left-wing, concealed-racist pluralism). Why a nice Jewish girl from a conservative backround was even competing in this whorefest is beyond me. But surprisingly most Ethiopians I know are quite proud. I think her biography is enough to be super-proud without being judged like a piece of meat or a prize-pig. There's probably a large silent majority that is embarrassed that she even competed, let alone the fact that her victory drew even more attention to the story (I didn't even know the pagent was taking place here until she won).

And yeah, I only have daughters, so don't worry. Also, as a person of gender (one of my parents is female), I take offense to any accusation that I could be misogynistic in any way. That's like calling Barack Obama a white-supremacist. It is a ridiculous and absurd contention. Some men are assholes and some women are cunts. Get over it. We live in different countries and your hyper-sensativity to certain "words" is obnoxious.

And, for the record, I *never* used the term "lesbian sodomites." I think lesbians are awesome and I feel that the American definition(s) of "sodomy" is overly broad. I don't think that what lesbians do can or should ever be placed on par with what gay men do. I also view sodomy as a legitimate form of sex, unlike fellatio (which is just masturbating into someone's mouth). I wouldn't use the term "sodomites" do describe anyone (except maybe the residents of Bet Shemesh).

Also, like it or not, some women are mentally/emotionally deranged, as are some men, and I used the term in context (referring to actually deranged/damaged women).

Israel has become a feminazi regime, holding many men hostage and placing them at the mercry of a merciless legal system. I don't know why, but my theory is that Israeli-machismo mixed with mother-issues has led to a bunch of (mysoginistic) lawmakers and judges institute legistlations and policies that were meant to "just make the woman stop yelling." And a lot of people suffer from this. Not just men, their wives and children too. My first and only use of the term was to defend Israel's leading feminist by using a recognizable term to explain that she is anything but.

Also, till today, I still don't know what the problem is with the word "broad." I welcome an explanation. As far as I know, since the early 70s or late 60s women have expressed their displeasure in being directly called "broad," "doll," "flossie," "honey," and similar terms of endearment by men (although some post-feminist women find it cute, or at least amusing that the man is being so ... I dunno, retro? Outdated?). But go ahead, educate me on the evils of the term "broad" to describe women. Juxtapose the term with the following uses:

Babe, baby, bambi, barbie, belle, bimbo, bitch, biatch, blondie, chic, dame, damsel, darling, dear, deary, diva, doll, dolly, dear, doxie, flossie, floozy, gal, girl, hag, hon, honey, lady, lass, lassie, little lady, little woman, legs, love, maiden, magnolia blossom, mama, mare, miss, mistress, missy, nag, nancy, old lady, old maid, pretty, princess, sally, slut, spinster, sweetheart, sweety, tootsie, tramp, wench, whore, wonder woman, yoko.

That would really put things in perspective. Thanks.

@Maskil

You know, bubbeh, there is a point where you normally stop and realize you are over your head and stop,...

Or in your case, open the throttles wide open, and aim straight into the ground to see how deep you can bury yourself down. In short, you should have quit while you were ahead (behind).

Dear chap, there is nothing in these two long, blattering, pompous, asinine, "blame everything but me" posts that would dissuade anybody, based on comments present and pasts, that you are still, concerning women, a rude, insulting misoginistic debased Human being.

...And, yes, you did indeed use the words "Lesbian Sodomites". It is called the archives. Wonderful little things, how they keep track of somebody's faux pas, forever.

You could always lay the blame of your puerile views on Females on the Israeli "Women of the Wall", Maskil (or how you do like to "refer" to them as, "C*nts").

And, no, Thank You. It is quite spectacular to see somebody self-destruct live in such a overreaching, bloviating written fashion.

...Linguistics (*sigh*)...

Sure, Maskil, that could be a valid, justified deflection, as valid as Stormfront.org trying to justify the use of the word "K*ke" as a friendly, colloquial descriptive bon mot for "Jewish person". -.-

...And, yes, you did indeed use the words "Lesbian Sodomites". It is called the archives. Wonderful little things, how they keep track of somebody's faux pas, forever.

I would not and did not. I searched only to see if someone posted under my username. I wouldn't attack lesbians (or derisively call a woman a lesbian) and I wouldn't use the word "Sodomites."

I'd still like you to enlighten me on the evils of the word "broad" when referring to women.

[p.s. Remember when "heeb" was a racial slur? What's next, Kike Kagazine? - Not that I in any way endorse either.]

Posted by: Maskil
"[p.s. Remember when..."

Okay, Maskil, tl;dr time, here's short and sweet: If I (and most, if not all people I have known) would had a problem with a person of the opposite sex that necessitate vulgarity, I could and would use such terms as:

*Idiot, morally deficient, moron, stupid, retard, dumbbell, assh*le, f*ckhead, cabron, sie dumm fuhrt, imbecile, dummkopf, miststück, connard, salaud,...

...with no excuse or scenario bad enough to ever use your, often repeated, saved to the archives, "definitions" for Females you don't agree with:

*C*nt, fat c*nt, these c*nts, TOTAL c*nts, c*nt pussy-posse, feminazi, broads, mentally damaged broads, deranged women, lesbian sodomites...

..Because these are the hallmark vocabulary of the base, morally defunct, "I take offense to any accusation that I could be a" misogynist.

So can the "lingua changes across the ages" excuse to try to justify the, continuous, ad nauseam, use of such delightful terms of endearment, Maskil.

"She's actually quite beautiful, so I retract my statement."

Sorry, skippy, after "Yet an Arab contestant won Miss Israel, in what was clearly a fix for plurality, as she was fugly", that statement is either one of a truly disingenuous tool, or your moral conviction and opinion compass is as steady as a weather vane in a typhoon.

Get off your high horse. The uses were never sweeping generalizations of women as a whole. The feature photo for Miss Israel '99 was far from justifying winning a beauty contest without a "diversity" fix being in place. The word I used applies to men and women equally, and I no longer think that (as I've seen better pictures). You clearly have your won issues, and I suspect you are projecting your own suppresses misogyny - I didn't grow up in such a culture (despite the prejudices you have of my cultural upbringing) and I don't really relate or "get" misogyny. And, I can't stress this enough, I would not and did not use theterm "lesbian sodomites." There is no such archive. I've alreadly explained why above.

This post is off the front page, so I'll repost my response with corrections for typos:

Get off your high horse. The uses were never sweeping generalizations of women as a whole. The feature photo for Miss Israel '99 was far from justifying winning a beauty contest without a "diversity" fix being in place (and the term was apt for contextual purposes, and would not be understood to be a comparison to Golda Meir or Medusa). The word I used applies to men and women equally, and I no longer think that (as I've seen better pictures).

You clearly have your own issues, and I suspect you are projecting your own suppressed misogyny - I didn't grow up in such a culture (despite the prejudices you may have of my cultural upbringing) and I don't really relate to or "get" misogyny. And, I can't stress this enough, I would not and did not use the term "lesbian sodomites." There is no such archive. I've already explained why above.


[Also, I find particularly surprising that of all things I've written, you chose a very specific set of examples that did not include my grouping the Palestinians into two groups: those whose females are hot and those who are not. I would have expected, of all things, for that (if anything) to be the quintessential paradigm of misogyny. But again, having grown up in a liberal, western culture I don't really understand misogyny.]

"Get off your high horse."

Not the one with the obsessive female description verbiage problem, lad.

"You clearly have your won(sic) issues, and I suspect you are projecting your own suppresses misogyny."

Ah. the classic oxymoron retort. Yep, doesn't work either when extremist Chareidim use it here with people they dare to point out their flaws too ("You clearly have your own issues, and I suspect you are projecting your own suppresses anti-semitism.")

"The word I used applies to men and women equally." Sad that it takes on a definitely whole new level of meaning when coupled with your ingrained sexual identification thought process ("Some men are assholes and some women are c*nts").

"I can't stress this enough, I would not and did not use theterm "lesbian sodomites."... I've alreadly explained why above."

Oh, yes, because now you "think lesbians are awesome", the same way the Arab Miss Israel was "fugly", but now "she's actually quite beautiful."

"I don't really understand misogyny." Yes, you don't, boyo. =/

Welp, have a fun being you, Maskil. Turn the lights off when you are done here.
