Here’s a clear sign of which way the wind is blowing among the dhimmis in official Washington. From AFP, with thanks to Fjordman:
JERUSALEM (AFP) – The new US ambassador to Tel Aviv has admitted that he knows little about Israel and speaks Arabic rather than Hebrew.
“I am not familiar with Israel, but I plan to study the country as soon as possible,” Richard Jones was quoted as saying by the Yediot Aharonot newspaper on his arrival in the country on Sunday.
During his first meeting with officials from the foreign ministry, Jones then promised to learn Hebrew while revealing that he was a fluent Arabic speaker.
