It’s not known where she will be posted, rumors in the news suggest Nunu is slated to become her country’s ambassador to the United States. Bahrain, a small Arab island nation in the Persian Gulf, has had zero diplomatic relations with Israel while there has long been political hostility between Arabs and Jews over Israel.
A decree King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa issued on Wednesday named Nunu an ambassador.
Bahrain is predominantly Shiite Muslim but has Sunni rulers. It is pro-American and hosts the U.S. Navy’s 5th Fleet. Nunu, a legislator in Bahrain’s Shura Council, is a member of a Jewish community that numbers around several dozen out of a total population in Bahrain estimated to be around 700,000.
