WE JUST discovered that we do have a small Israeli ex-pat community in our midst. It's a small but brave country, which has always been our steadfast friend. If our defence capability is better than our neighbour's, it's thanks in some measure to equipment of Israeli origin. With diplomatic relations between the two countries entering the second decade, the Israeli Ambassador, David Aphek's visit to town was considered significant. The staff at Le Meridien, where Mr. Aphek stayed, tell us he was an ideal guest. He also took time off to sign the VIP register at the hotel, conveying his best wishes.
