I heard a story once that there was a night-time janitor who claimed to have visited Israel with an Evangelical Christian group and was personally very pro Israel. When the State Department found out, he was fired on the spot. State claimed it never happened -- that there never has been an employee of the State Department at ANY level (janitor or Ambassador) who ever had a positive feeling for Israel. Still the story of the single janitor persists. Perhaps it's an urban legend.
