We are not amused

Israel's Foreign Minister, Silvan Shalom, is an annoying, incompetent nebbuch who has only got where he is through the money, influence and push of his wife Judy, whose family owns Yediot Acharonot, read by 70% of the Israeli population. Judy herself is a total airhead and freak, who turns up to state events in jeans and hair dyed fire engine red, has long conversations on television about her belief in astrology, and is something of a big mouth and a loose cannon, particularly when it comes to incessantly and nauseatingly promoting said hubbie.
Now, YNet and JTA are reporting that she was actually allowed to accost Prince Charles at the Pope's funeral:
Prince Charles got a Jewish good-luck charm for his wedding from the wife of Israel’s foreign minister.
Judy Shalom-Nir-Mozes, who accompanied Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom to the funeral of Pope John Paul II, said Monday she used the opportunity to bestow on Charles a golden amulet with a Hebrew prayer that had been blessed by an Israeli kabbalist. “Prince Charles was very charming about it, not at all the drip that Israelis assume he is,” Shalom-Nir-Mozes told Army Radio. A multiple divorcee, she said she hoped Charles and his second wife, Camilla Parker Bowles, would find happiness. “It’s all about love, isn’t it?” she said.
'Not at all the drip that Israelies assume he is'... Very diplomatic from the wife of our Foreign Minister. And does she really think Prince Charles, a man of considerable wealth and extravagant taste, would appreciate a piece of old rubbish from Rabbi Kaduri (apparently she visited him the day before the funeral specifically to get the talisman for Charles)? It's bad enough we get represented by no-English Silvan, when is this flaky woman going to be banned from representing Israel?
