The newly appointed US ambassador to Israel is a young man (44) named Daniel Shapiro. It is difficult to have a civil discussion with his mother about Israel because "everything would be just fine if Israel would agree to peace."
Daniel and his wife spent a year during college in Israel - he speaks Hebrew and Arabic. He worked in Bill Nelson's office where he pronounced his admiration of Dan Kurtzer's approach to the Arab-Israeli conflict.
He is also about as far left as it is possible to be, a huge, long time supporter of Obama and has the potential to be a snake in the grass where Israel is concerned.
People need to be forewarned about the potential damage he may do.
