Israeli officials expressed concern on Friday over a brewing diplomatic crisis with Brazil as the government there has so far refused the appointment of Dani Dayan, the former settler leader, as ambassador to Brasilia.

Dayan, the onetime chairman of the Yesha council of settlements in Judea and Samaria (West Bank), was named ambassador to Brazil four months ago, yet his credentials have yet to be approved by the authorities in the South American giant.

Brazilian officials are known to be uncomfortable with Dayan due to his rightist political views, namely his stated opposition to Palestinian statehood.
