"with friendship"

The machinations of politicians never fail to amuse me.

"Sarkozy sent a personal letter to Prime Minister Netanyahu over the weekend addressing the IAEA's report on Iran's nuclear program, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Sunday. The letter contains particularly harsh statements against Iran and is signed with the words "with friendship" in the French president's own hand-writing. The gesture is quite uncommon within diplomatic correspondence. The letter was relayed to Netanyahu by French Ambassador to Israel Christophe Bigot."

First off the letter is funny. But what really caught me was the irony of the name of the Ambassador! Of all the people who could have become the Ambassador to Israel the best they could find was one named Bigot? I know, I know, but you just can't make this stuff up. Funny old world, n'est pas?
