Ishmael Khaldi, born and raised in a Bedouin village in the western Galilee of Israel, became Israel's first Bedouin diplomat in 2004. He served as the Spokesperson to the Arabic media during Israel’s disengagement from Gaza in 2005 and as Israel’s Deputy Consul General in San Francisco, 2006 – 2009. In February 2012 Mr. Khaldi was appointed Counselor for Civil Society Affairs to the Embassy of Israel in London, where he currently serves. In his autobiography, A Shepherd’s Journey (self-published, 2010) Khaldi tells of his unusual journey, the course of his career working with Jews, Christians and Muslims, religious and secular, on three continents; of the friendships he has formed and the challenges he has faced.
