Israel’s ambassador to UNESCO, Carmel Shama-Hacohen, has already shown he pulls no punches when reacting to the organization’s shameful decisions (even though I think his relatively poor English does impede his effectiveness).
Following UNESCO’s latest shameful decision on Hebron, Shama-Hacohen got up to deliver what I can only describe as a surreal speech. It definitely had its powerful moments, but those were somewhat blunted by his poor English and his cellphone going off. Yep, I kid you not (and you thought Israelis leaving their phones on in the movie theater was bad).
But to his credit, he manages to come up with a zinger at the end when his phone goes off one too many times.
