In the past few days, Zalman Shoval’s popularity has soared with colleagues and strangers he bumps into around his Washington office. “There isn’t a single person in the [U.S.] State Department that hasn’t tapped me on the shoulder and said ‘thank you,’ ” related Shoval, Israel’s incoming ambassador to the United States. “It reminds me of the good old days of Israel’s restraint in the [1991] Gulf war.”
