— Israel’s Ambassador-designate Moshe Sasson, was scheduled to leave Sunday for Egypt to take up his new post. Sasson, an experienced Arabist and career diplomat, will replace Israel’s first Ambassador to Egypt, Eliahu Ben-Elissar, who resigned his post earlier this year to run in next month’s Knesset elections on the Likud list. Agriculture Minister Ariel Sharon is due to leave for Egypt Monday, in response to a long standing invitation.
