American-born Ron Dermer, Prime Minister Netanyahu’s senior adviser, now is Israel’s next Ambassador to the U.S.

Galei Tzahal reported today that Ron Dermer will be appointed as Israel’s Ambassador to the U.S. in August.

It was first reported by Makor Rishon in December 2012 that Dermer would be the next Israeli ambassador to the U.S., but the story was quickly denied a few days later by Israel’s Embassy in Washington.

Dermer fell out of the good graces of the Obama administration for his support of Mitt Romney, but he has been working to imporive his relationship with the current adminstration, and with John Kerry in particular.

Dermer made Aliyah from Florida in 1998, and served as a senior adviser to Prime Minister Netanyahu for four years.

  1. Mazel tov on your new position! I hope Obama and Kerry appreciate you and all us Jews here in the USA and worldwide. I am willing to do volunteer work for you, our new Israeli ambassador to the USA. I am of the USA Pres. James Carter school of thought, from my International Congress on Catalysis work at Univ. of Wisconsin at Milwaukee (UWM) 1972-1981, i.e. scientists worldwide should share research results to further environmental progress!
