USA Ambassador Shapiro visit to the "Iron Dome" Battery
On Tuesday, August 9, 2011, USA Ambassador to Israel, Daniel B. Shapiro, travelled to the south of Israel for a tour of the Iron Dome Battery. Ambassador briefed the Israeli press in Hebrew and English (from 2:33 onwards). I wonder whether Ambassador Shapiro plans to also visit Gaza and encourage Palestinian military leaders. I also wonder whether he would prepare a text in Arabic for such an event. After all, America wants to regard itself as a balanced negotiator.
