B’nai B’rith International has issued the following statement:
B’nai B’rith International warmly welcomes the appointment of Ron Dermer as the next ambassador of Israel to the United States. Dermer will succeed Ambassador Michael Oren.
Dermer, a longtime senior advisor to Netanyahu, will certainly promote strong relations between the United States and Israel. The Florida native is well versed in the ways of Washington, having served at the embassy with a portfolio focusing on economic affairs.
Given current volatility in the Middle East, it is more important than ever for the two countries to work together to continue tackling the tough issues in the region. B’nai B’rith wishes him luck in his new position and we look forward to working with him.
See where B'nai B'rith International stands on the issues.
