Embassy Denies Ron Dermer Is New Envoy

JewishPress Logo

The Israeli embassy in Washington described as baseless an Israeli newspaper report that Ron Dermer, an adviser to Israeli Prime Minister Bejamin Netanyahu, is set to replace Michael Oren as Israel’s ambassador to the United States.

The daily Makor Rishon on Friday reported that Oren has requested to end his tenure in the spring of 2013, when he will have completed a four-year tenure.

The Washington embassy’s spokesman, Aaron Sagui, told JTA the report was baseless.

Dermer, who immigrated to Israel from Florida in 1998, has served under Netanyahu as senior adviser in the Prime Minister’s Bureau since 2009, where he acted as liaison to the White House, the paper reported.

Several Israeli media said the Prime Minister’s Bureau and the Prime Minister’s Office declined to comment on the article.

  1. Michael Oren is a huge benefit to Israel in his current position. he is articulate, very intelligent, a known factor, and, at this point in Israel's history, almost irreplaceable. Now is NOT the time to change ambassadors.
