Best and Worse Hasbara of the Day

From Ynet:

VIDEO - Yityish (Titi) Aynaw, the first Ethiopian-born woman to becrowned Miss Israel, is attracting media attention in her homeland as well, with intense coverage by Ethiopian newspapers, websites, television and radio stations....
The Embassy is also initiating an unusual move: Sending a text message to every cell phone in Ethiopia to announce the crowning of an Ethiopian beauty queen in Israel.

Great work of Hasbara by the Embassy. Now for the prize for the worst Hasbara of the day, from the same article:

Israel's Deputy Ambassador to Ethiopia Leo Vinovezky said that the crowning of an Ethiopian immigrant as Miss Israel had created great media interest. "The social networks are full of reports about the win. The Ethiopians feel it is their accomplishment too. This is the Ethiopian Jewry's finest hour."(emphasis added)

Really? is this really Ethiopian Jewry's finest hour?
