The Israeli foreign ministry has named Middle East specialist Chaim Koren as the next ambassador to Egypt after several months of being without an envoy. The government did not state when Koren will take up his new post.

He has been serving as non-resident ambassador to South Sudan. Koren speaks Arabic and previously has served on the embassy staff in Cairo as director of the ministry’s political planning division.


Anti-Israel violence following the ouster of Muslim Brotherhood Mohammed Morsi as president of Egypt forced Israel to law low diplomatically and pull outs embassy staff from Cairo.

  1. I guess Chaim Koran's first job is to set right the recent employed opinion contributor of the New York Times' Editorial Section Alaa Al Aswany, who is still blaming Israel for the 1967 error which killed some Egyptian Soldiers in the Sanai. It was a known mistake but Al Aswany is lighting touch papers to reignite the antagonism from 47 years ago. Well, its an excuse anyway and has the back-up by the NYT to set the agenda for further antisemitism in the middle east. I hope Mr Koran has a strong enough stomach to appease all the Jew/Israel haters which are bound come to light in his new position.
