South African Ambassador Ebrahim Rasool implied that intolerance among the country's black majority led to his dismissal in 2008 as the premier of the picturesque Western Cape province, when he met U.S. Ambassador Donald Gips in 2009.
Kenya's ambassador to the United States is defending his government's refusal to arrest the president of Sudan on war-crime charges when he visited Kenya for a celebration of the new constitution.
Foreign visitors in Washington this week include Prime Minister Benjamin Netyanhu of Israel, who meets President Obama to discuss sanctions on Iran, Israel's policy toward Hamas terrorists in Gaza and other Middle East issues.
Mr. Rasool, who served as premier from 2004 to 2008, said he worked to promote moderate Islam in the Cape Town area and throughout the province.
The Cape Argus newspaper in June revealed that Mr. Rasool paid two of its former reporters to write favorable stories about him when he served as premier of the Western Cape Province.
