The Israeli government refused to hire permanently the director of its press office. Danny Seaman, who has been acting director of the Government Press Office since the Palestinian intifada was launched three years ago, was turned down even though he was the only applicant when the permanent position was offered this summer, Ha’aretz reported Tuesday. Reports said he was passed over for the job because of his contentious relations with some foreign correspondents.
