BAHRAIN’S KOSHER EN­VOY

The Jewish Chronicle - - Features -

JEWS in Amer­ica al­most cer­tainly have noth­ing to fear from the per­son nom­i­nated to take over as Bahrain’s am­bas­sador in Wash­ing­ton.

Un­usu­ally for a en­voy from the Gulf States, the pro­posed am­bas­sador is a wo­man, and even more un­usu­ally, she is Jewish. Huda Ezra Ebrahim Nonoo be­longs to the tiny Bahraini Jewish com­mu­nity — her an­ces­tors were im­mi­grants from Iraq.

Good news, but we es­ti­mate that the first Saudi Ara­bian Jewish ap­pointee is still some way off.
