A Jewish diplomat, Daniel Rubinstein, is slated to be the next U.S. special envoy for Syria.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on March 17 that Rubinstein would replace Robert Ford as the diplomat guiding the U.S. response to the crisis in the country.
Rubinstein served as consul general, the top U.S. official at the Jerusalem consulate, from 2009 to 2012 and directed the State Department’s Office of Israel and Palestinian Affairs in 2004-05.
His biography says he is fluent in Hebrew, Arabic and Portuguese.
