Israel's standoff with Brazil over the naming of a controversial ex- settlement leader as ambassador to Brasilia was ended Thursday but reignited hours later due to an "unfortunate bureaucratic mistake".An hour later, however, Nahshon said the statement was incorrect and confirmed that Dayan was still Israel's choice.The dispute began last summer when Netanyahu announced that Dayan, who was born in Argentina and moved to Israel aged 15 in 1971, was the country's preferred choice.Brazil's government reportedly opposed Dayan because of his opposition to a Palestinian state and because Israel failed to consult over its choice.
