Newsline: Brazil rejects Israel’s ambassador nominee

Brazil will not accept settler leader Dani Dayan as Israel’s next ambassador, a senior official in Brasilia said. Following diplomatic protocol, Brazil will simply not respond to Israel’s months-old request to confirm Dayan’s nomination, waiting until Jerusalem gets the hint and proposes a different envoy to its capital, the official said this week. Dayan was named as envoy in August, and endorsed by the Israeli cabinet in September, but Brazil has maintained a frosty silence on the appointment rather than issuing the customary confirmation.
