King Hamad of Bahrain on Thursday appointed a Jew and a Christian among four women to the 40-member upper chamber, following a parliamentary election last month, state media reported.
The king kept 30 members of the outgoing Shura, or consultative, council including the speaker, Ali Saleh al-Saleh, according to a royal decree published by BNA news agency.
Nancy Khadhori joined the chamber after a fellow Jew, Huda Nono, left the house to take the role of Bahrain’s ambassador to the United States.
“I am very happy to receive the royal trust. I hope I will be up to the responsibility,” said Khadhori, one of only 37 Bahraini Jews who originated from Iraq.
So the question is, is this REALLY good for the Jews??? Don’t automatically jump to what you think is an obvious conclusion.
Why are you always so negative!
Keep in mind, Bahrain is not Syria or Libya. There’s a small, ancient Jewish community.
I am not negative, this time or any other time. Its called Das Torah.
I would also point out to prove to you how “un-negative” I am, I hold out hope that one day soon you will see the light and join us on the right side of things.
