40 Brazilian organisations protest appointment of new Israeli ambassador

Forty well-known Brazilian organisations have signed a public opinion statement condemning Israel’s nomination of Dani Dayan, former head of the pro-settler Yesha Council, as Israeli ambassador to Brazil.

In their statement, the organisations described Dayon’s nomination as a violation of international legitimacy and challenge to Brazil’s sovereignty and demanded their government reject Dayan’s nomination.

A copy of the statement was submitted to the regional office of the Brazilian Presidency in Sao Paulo.

The statement coincided with interventions made by a number of Brazilian parliamentarians who condemned the nomination of a settler as an ambassador, describing such a step as a challenge to Brazil’s sovereignty and its official political stance that accords with international law, and an assault on Brazilian diplomacy.
