The new Israeli ambassador to the UK is Dalia Itzik, whose command of English is "rudimentary" (report). Right now Shimon Peres is on Army Radio defending the appointment - he says that a lot of the ambassador's work involves trade and other matters that don't require fluency.

The consensus here is that the main reason for the appointment is to provide Itzik with a pleasant sabbatical.
