    AFP Then Israeli Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom (R) and his wife Judy Shalom Nir-Mozes in Paris on February 14, 2005

    The flamboyant wife of Israeli Interior Minister Silvan Shalom published an "inappropriate joke" Sunday about US President Barack Obama on her Twitter account, only to later delete it and apologize.

    "Do u know what Obama Coffee is? Black and weak," Judy Shalom Nir-Mozes wrote to her 74,400 followers.

    Online shock, condemnation and accusations of racism later led her to delete the incriminating tweet.

    "I apologize, that was a stupid joke somebody told me," she wrote on her @JudyMozes Twitter account in English.

    "President Obama I shouldnt have written the inappropriate joke I heard," she also wrote, addressing the US leader directly. "I like people no matter about their race and religion."

    "Sorry if I caused any offence to anyone. I hope I will stay married when my husband will land and hear what I did," she added.

    Her husband, a member of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party, is also the minister charged with strategic ties with the United States.

    The outspoken Nir-Mozes is a scion of the Mozes family that owns the top-selling Yediot Aharonot daily. She hosts a weekly radio programme as well as participating in a number of television shows.

    She publishes blunt tweets and Facebook posts about a wide range of social and political issues, including criticising members of Israel's political left for what she perceives as their lack of patriotism.

    Netanyahu is also a regular target for her criticism.

    *Just had to add this comment from the comment section of the story.

    She reminds me of the member of the Knesset who said all Palestinian mothers should be killed so they can't give birth to 'terrorists' - 'Their blood should be on our hands' she said. People like this woman are quite shocked when the outside world reacts to their lunacy because lunacy is normal in Likud and the Israeli ultra right. She, of course takes her coffee with cream, because she's rich and thick.
