JERUSALEM (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Israel has distanced itself from a government official who made strong comments about the World War II nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Responding to a Japanese request for clarification, a top Israeli envoy told Japan that the comments were "unacceptable" and that the official had been suspended.

Danny Seaman was a government public relations official and posted on Facebook that he was "sick" of "self-righteous" Japanese and international commemorations of Hiroshima and Nagasaki victims. He said those events were the results of "Japanese aggression."

The comment embarrassed Israel before an international ally.
