JNS.org – Dani Dayan is insisting that he has no plans to withdraw from his appointment as Israel’s ambassador to Brazil, despite the Brazilian government’s reluctance to approve him over his former role as a leader of the Israeli settlement movement in Judea and Samaria.

Dayan met last week with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely to discuss Brazil’s unwillingness to approve him as ambassador, saying he would not step down from the role. Both Netanyahu and Hotovely offered their full support. A senior Israeli Foreign Ministry official on Monday denied reports that the ministry believes Dayan should give up the ambassadorship.

Meanwhile, Dayan accused Member of Knesset Tzipi Livni (Zionist Union) of trying to thwart his appointment, writing Monday on Twitter, “14 MKs worked tirelessly against my appointment in Brazil: 13 belonging to the Joint Arab List and then Tzipi Livni.”

Dayan explained that he was referring to a series of interviews Livni has given on the matter. In response, Livni said, “I did not work against the appointment. I am in favor of worthy, talented ambassadors who represent the government — and you (Dayan])certainly fit that criteria….The thing causing damage to Israel is not your appointment, but the government’s policies [on settlements]. But you shouldn’t have to pay the price for that.”

    I don’t know to much about your governments policy’s on settlements, I would hope it is to expand aggressively in all directions. God does have his doctrinal heavenly policy’s and that includes returning Israel to 12 strips of land he promised them for the bloodbath, the death of their children at the hand of Harod and Egypt, their enslavement as a covenant elect…for the bloody trail they blazed to bring about our Messia. Now if anyone and that includes all the army’s of the world, all the terrorist organizations of the world, Hilliary Clinton, Obama, the Pope, the European Union, the United Nations, feel they can effect Gods promises to Israel in an adverse way they should prepare to be crushed, flooded, hailed on, earthquakes, tornados, diseases, the spoiling of their drinking waters, contamination of their fishing waters, the killing of their livestock, Droughts, attacks from enemy’s, the complete breakdown of their economy, asteroids with precision guidance for the destruction of entire country’s….that’s a foretaste of what God will do. And yes God is waiting for Gore, Obama, and the pope to come running in and attempt to take credit for all His calamitys brought on this earth in the name of climate change. Gods message for them, unless you change your direction your time on planet earth is much shorter than you think in fact you could draw your last breath tommorow!
