Israeli insult to Japan on FacebookOn August 8, the day before the annual memorial service for victims of the bombings at Hiroshima, Seaman, then deputy director-general for information in the now-defunct Ministry of Public Diplomacy, posted a message on Facebook: “I am sick of the Japanese, ‘Human Rights’ and ‘Peace’ groups the world over holding their annual self-righteous commemorations for the Hiroshima and Nagasaki victims. Hiroshima and Nagasaki were the consequence of Japanese aggression. You reap what you sow."

Seaman is the sort of individual we've all run into at some point: he's the guy who leans back with his legs spread slightly too wide apart; the type who hisses a retard joke when a colleague with a special needs child walks into the room. Jerusalem's serious, professional spokespeople detest him. They end up having to clean up his messes. Just ask Amidror, who is not even a spokesman.

For ten years, Danny Seaman served as "temporary" head of Israel's Government Press Office. His tenure was always questionable. When after innumerable complaints a tender for the job was finally issued, Seaman failed to qualify. Recent scrutiny—and the Japanese fallout—led to a suspension from his current job with the defunct ministry. Seaman's promotion to the Prime Minister's office, however, seems likely to go through.

The latest of his many humiliations began last week, when a Haaretz exposé, entitled "Is an abusive racist the best Israeli PR can produce?" detailed several of Seaman's Facebook pearls—including the Japan remarks.

On July 9, shortly after the start of Ramadan, he posted, “Does the commencement of the fast of the Ramadan mean that Muslims will stop eating each other during the daytime?”
