Israel has yanked their ambassador to El Salvador, TZURIEL REFAEL, after he was found drunk, naked (unless bondage gear & toys count as clothes) outside of an S&M party. Apparently, according to police reports, he was only able to identify himself to authorities after the rubber ball from his mouth had been removed. Holy shit, you just can't make this stuff up! Quite embarassing for Israel, but not the first time one of their Ambassadors have been in trouble. According to the AP:
* Last year, Israel replaced its ambassador to Australia, Naftali Tamir, after he said Israel and Australia are “like sisters” because both are located in Asia and their peoples don't have the Asian characteristics of “yellow skin and slanted eyes.”
* In 2005, Israel canceled the appointment of a diplomat to Australia after it was discovered that he published pictures of nude Brazilian women on the Internet while on a mission in Brazil.
* In 2000, Israel's ambassador to France died of cardiac arrest in a Paris hotel under circumstances the Foreign Ministry refused to publicize. Media reports said he was with a woman who was not his wife at the time.
