David Quarrey presents his diplomatic credentials to President Rivlin, who invites Queen Elizabeth II to visit the region
The first openly gay British ambassador presented his credentials to President Reuven Rivlin during an official ceremony in Jerusalem last week.
David Quarrey introduced his spouse, Aldo Oliver Henriquez, to Rivlin during the event at the Presidents Residence.
Rivlin welcomed the ambassador, who took up his post in July, and told him of his hopes in using Quarreys diplomatic experience for confidence-building measures in the region.
During your term here, we will celebrate the centenary of the Balfour Declaration, which perhaps marks the beginning of the diplomatic relations between Israel and Britain, Rivlin told Quarrey referring to the November 1917 document in which the United Kingdoms foreign secretary at the time, Arthur James Balfour, stated his governments support for establishing a national homeland for Jews in Palestine.
In a post to his Twitter feed Quarrey spoke of his pride in serving in Israel.

What is it about DoS/Foreign Service that attracts all the homos?
he took up his post in July
Well, it gets the sodomite closer to Sodom.
God will not be mocked.....
Is this the guy who was accused of pederasty while holding his post?
What is it about Israel that the US and UK have to send homosexual ambassadors, we have to fly the rainbow flag over our Embassy there and the homosexuals have to have their pride parades there?
Sticking a thumb in God’s eye?
It isn’t going to end well.
All from British public schools, lol.
I remember reading about the homosexual flag being hoisted in Israel, but I don’t remember anyone pointing out a homosexual ambassador did it.
