It would be nice if just once we could have an ambassador to Israel that represented exclusively US interests. ZOA Welcomes Nomination of Daniel Shapiro as U.S. Ambassador to Israel:
The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) welcomes the nomination of Daniel Shapiro as the United States Ambassador to Israel....
ZOA President Morton A. Klein said, “I have known Dan since his days on Capitol Hill. Although we did not always agree on every issue relating to Israel, one thing was always clear – Dan was deeply committed to Israel’s safety and security and strong U.S.-Israel relations. He speaks fluent Hebrew, his beautiful daughters all have Hebrew names, and his parents would openly admit that they’re 'kvelling!'
"... In addition, Dan is exceptionally bright and understands the facts surrounding the Arab war against Israel."
