After infuriating the Kazakh authorities, Borat is coming to Israel. The British Jewish comedian Sacha Baron Cohen (35), better known as Ali G. will be arriving in Israel shortly to promote his blockbuster movie "Borat."


Cohen, born to an Israeli mother and a British father portrays the character of Borat Sagdiyev, a chauvinist and anti-Semitic reporter from Kazakhstan.


Throughout the movie, Borat speaks in gibberish which is supposedly the Kazakhstan language. However, the language he speaks in, and often
curses in, is in fact Hebrew with a heavy Russian accent.


During the movie Borat interviews unsuspecting Americans on the street who are unaware that Borat is a fictitious character, and so relate to him and his anti-Semitic comments seriously. In a series of (real) interviews with (real) US citizens Borat reveals his interviewees' true racist character.


The American movie created a diplomatic incident with the Kazakh authorities, who complained that he was depicting their country as dark and racist.
