Rethink Israel tells us:
This 6-foot beauty captured not only the attention of the judges but also the world when she was recently crowned Miss Israel. Soon after, another dream was fulfilled when 21-year-old Yityish “Titi” Aynaw was invited to dine with President Barack Obama. It was in celebration of his most recent trip to Israel.Actually this is slightly old news, as it turns out. Ms. Aynaw was named Miss Israel last year, but I just discovered it at Rethink Israel.
Titi, the first Ethiopian immigrant to win the Miss Israel title, says she’s come a long way in less than 10 years. Born in a tiny African village where things like staircases didn’t even exist, Titi suffered the tragic loss of both her parents by age 12. She then came to Israel and created a new life.
Today, an estimated 121,000 citizens of Ethiopian descent are living in Israel.
The next time someone calls Israel an "apartheid state" clobber him over the head with this one.
Oh, and by the way, she apparently likes Barack Obama.
Heck, nobody is perfect.
