A settler leader apologized for calling the U.S. ambassador to Israel a “Jewboy.” Adi Mintz, director-general of the Council of Jewish Communities of Judea, Samaria, and the Gaza Strip, wrote a letter of apology to Daniel Kurtzer, who is Jewish, saying he did not mean to hurt the envoy personally. Mintz made the comments in an interview with the Shas movement newsletter, From Day to Day, in which he argued that Kurtzer was out of line to criticize Israeli settlement practices.
