Yuval Rotem, Israel’s ambassador to Australia, was one of the first in the world to cast a vote in Israeli elections. Thursday (January 29) was the first day for absentee voting with staff at Canberra’s Israeli embassy among the first to vote. Elections for the 18th Knesset will take place on February 10.
This essential piece of “news” is similar to the paper’s “exclusive” in 2008:
Israeli Ambassador Yuval Rotem and his family visited Dreamworld and WhiteWater World on the Gold Coast this week for some holiday thrills.
Rotem tried out the newest ride at Dreamworld, the Mick Doohan Motorcoaster, which features life-size replicas of 500cc racing bikes which zoom to 720km/hour in three seconds.
His family also tackled the Cyclone rollercoaster, Nickelodeon Central and visited Tiger Island before strolling next door to WhiteWater World for more rides”¦
Dressed in fashionable boardshorts, a cap and comfortable Crocs, the ambassador couldn’t help but praise the blue Queensland skies and the balmy 25-degree heat.
“I sometimes wish Canberra had this weather. It’s lovely and warm, and feels great to be alive,” he said.
