MICHELLE Obama is furious about her husband’s friendship with “Titi” - the newly crowned Miss Israel, according to a new report.

American magazine the National Enquirer claims Michelle was “fit to be tied” when she learned that the president had his staffers specifically request that the gorgeous 21-yr-old, Yityish “Titi” Aynaw, be invited to a Mar 21 state dinner held in his honour in Israel - while she was back home in Washington, DC. “Now on the international hit parade is lovely Miss Israel,” said the source. “She’s made no secret in press reports how much she admires Barack, calling him very powerful and ‘charismatic’.”

At the dinner, it was reported that Titi was going to urge the president to release Jonathan Pollard, a former US analyst serving a life sentence in prison for spying for Israel.               –GN
