Gay Israeli Diplomat Yanked After Sex Games Turn Public

Forget about diplomatic immunity. Tsuriel Raphael, Israel’s openly gay ambassador to El Salvador, has been recalled after police found him in his yard nearly naked, drunk, tied up and sporting sex toys. Huffington Post reports:

Tsuriel Raphael has been removed from his post and the Foreign Ministry has begun searching for a replacement, said spokeswoman Zehavit Ben-Hillel.

Two weeks ago, El Salvador police found Raphael naked outside his residence, tied up, gagged and drunk, Israeli media reported. He was wearing several sex toys at the time, the media said. After he was untied, Raphael told police he was the ambassador of Israel, the reports said.

Considering his government post, officials debated how to address what has been described as a “very embarrassing” incident. They’ve now deemed the affair “inappropriate” and “unacceptable”, thus disqualifying Raphael from his current job.

Raphael’s worked in El Salvador for six months. Prior to that, he acted as the director of the Israel Information Center. Good thing, too, because we imagine his bosses are going to have a lot of questions for him.
