Khaldi, Ishmael -- Israeli Diplomacy

Posted on February 23rd, 2009 in PoliticsRelationshipsReligionWorld CultureWorld History by admin

Contrary to what people might assume, not all diplomats representing the State  of Israel are Jewish.  In this edition of Radio Curious we visit with Ishmael Khaldi the Deputy Consul General from the State of Israel and based in San Francisco, California.  Ishmael Khaldi is a Muslim who was born and raised in a migrant Bedouin community in Galilee in northern Israel.  Ishmael Khaldi is the first Bedouin diplomat and the first Muslim in the Israeli Foreign Service. In this interview he shares his journey from his migratory tribal roots to northern California as the deputy consul general, and some of the Israeli proposals for resolving the present day internal conflicts.  Ishmael  Khaldi visited the studios of Radio Curious, in Ukiah, California on February, 12th 2009.  Our conversation began when I asked him how he defines his identity, being both a Bedouin Muslim and deputy consul general for the State of Israeli.
