Dermer does not have what it takes to be an effective Israeli ambassador to the US. He never served in the IDF, which takes him out of the mainstream of Israeli society.

Thus far, it seems as if his contributions to Israel have been mostly negative. But this won't be the first blunder Netanyahu has made.
