Bahrain names Jewish ambassador

May 29, 2008

Bahrain’s king has appointed a Jewish woman as the country’s envoy to the United States.

Houda Nonoo said she was proud to serve her country “first of all as a Bahraini” and that she was not chosen for the post because of her religion.

She is believed to be the Arab world’s first Jewish ambassador.

Ms Nonoo, 43, has served as a legislator in Bahrain’s 40-member Shura Council for three years and is head of the Bahrain Human Rights Watch.

    LOL!! Bahrain figured that since America is completely controlled by Jews, why not appoint a Jew as envoy?
