    'Hasbara' refers to 'public relations efforts to disseminate abroad positive information or propaganda about the State of Israel and its actions' (according to wiki) , so it strikes me as a redundant phrase to use in reference to an Israeli ambassador, as public relations efforts on behalf of their countries is part of what ambassadors are supposed and required to do, surely?

    I thought that Nurit Tinari-Modai's analysis last year was broadly accurate.

    I wonder if the new Hasbara man will be sending out anti-Palestinian Christmas cards like the last clown.

    The use of 'hasbara' or 'hasbara man' in this context strikes me as superfluous, redundant. It's the job of any ambassador to engage in public diplomacy and present the best face of their country. That's what they're paid to do.

    I expect our Irish ambassadors abroad to pursue 'hasbara', or 'taidhleoireacht' - don't you guys?
