Joining Amb Roded for the visit to Phuket Provinvial Hall was Yuval Waks, the Israeli Embassy’s Deputy Chief of Mission Political and Public Affairs.

According to a press release issued by the Phuket PR Dept, Governor Chamroen said that the main reason for the official visit was to thank Phuket for not allowing a particular French comedian from performing in Phuket as the show would have included comment on the stability issue within the State of Israel.

“They thanked us that we did not have such a show since Israel broke the news (about the show) at the beginning of the year and our action pleased Israel very much,” Gov Chamroen was quoted as saying.

“Another reason for their visit is to study and seek support in tourism with us because they believe Phuket is world famous for tourism. Up to 1.5 million Israelis visit Phuket each year,” he added.

Amb Simon also proposed to have Israel support Phuket in managing wastewater, said the release.


“Israel possesses both experts and technology in water management, and especially in improving wastewater-treatment systems,” Gov Chamroen said.

“We also discussed security issues and that Phuket is part of the Smart City development policy (see here),” Gov Chamroen added.

“I told him that security is always our priority, especially for tourists, both Thai and foreigners. All departments are working together to keep this place safe, to gain the public’s trust and to maintain a good tourism image,” he added.

Amb Roded also gave Gov Chamroen a copy of the book “Start-up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle” by Dan Senor and Saul Singer, which details how “smart policies” led Israel to its impressive international economic performance.

Boriskoulakof, Jews are NOT "OCCUPYING" what was Caanan and Israel.! This has  for centuries been the Country of the JEWS!
The JEWS were invaded many many times. By the Romans, by others, by the Ottoman Muslims.They were there LONG before there was even a Koran or a "Mohammed".Do you want to tell us that King David and King Solomon were MUSLIMS" That the first temple in Jerusalem was built by Muslims and NOT Jews.?
That all the Archeologists of the World are wrong when they
find and unearth SYNAGOGUES all over and Jewish Artifacts that are thousands of years old? Tell us about any MOSQUES ever found in Israel that have been unearthed or discovered like the ANCIENT Synagogues of the Jews and  that were there thousands and thousands of years ago? NO ! Because there 
were NONE.!Is MASADA now suddenly MUSLIM History?There was NEVER a Palestinian Nation,race or tribe or a Palestinian Middle East Country,language,currency ever.The WORD PALESTINE
is a ROMAN word not a ARAB Word at all. It was the ROMANS when they invaded that called the Territory, JUDEA and SAMARIA,they invaded,PALESTINE.Yasser Arrafat coined the ROMAN WORD Palestinian Liberation Organisation for his Organization and them.THEY ARE Descendant ARABS from various ARAB Countries that entered Caanan(Judea Caesarea) over years,including JORDAN. Israel NEVER ATTACKS NEIGHBOURS! THEY RETALIATE when THEY are attacked.The Rockets and Missiles are coming from GAZA into Israel and then ISRAEL keeps on WARNING and eventually they attack back.They even have DOMES SYSTEMS protecting the Israel Citizens against these attacks and even drop pamphlets warning Citizens to leave if possible as they will attack. HAMAS( Terrorists) control GAZA. THEY are the cause and are just like other MUSLIM TERRORIST Organizations that have suicide bombers and bomb Innocent people all over the World like EUROPE and also TURKEY, USA etc even NOW.They hide behind women and children,(Just like ISIS) fire their Missiles from schools and Hospitals and from neighborhoods where people live.THE UN is a bunch of HYPOCRITES and has become an Organization with a lot of DESPOTS as Members whose Countries are in a mess, starvation and Hunger and they are BILLIONAIRES stealing all the Wealth of their own Citizens of their Countries.They is  NO HUMAN RIGHTS or DEMOCRACY and CORRUPTION beyond words in the Countries of a MAJORITY LEADERS who sit in the UN. They are useless, should sort their OWN Countries first and actually just be disbanded.It is NO LONGER what it was established to be. Have you been to Israel? Have you been there when the Missiles are fired from HAMAS in GAZA and seen how the IRON DOMES intercept and destroy the Incoming Missiles? NO !!because then you would be more informed of the facts than reading HAMAS/ARAB Propaganda including the useless UN. They have never solved anything not even in African Countries. By the way I am not a JEW or a MUSLIM but a Christian.Maybe you should go and google the following:

Israeli government and the powerful Jewish lobby try to muzzle people who speak about the dark side of Israel and who says that Jewish people where not the only victims of a horrible genocide.

(Indian American , Cambodia , Armenia , Rwanda ...and many others in close history.)

As everybody can see, they are so powerful (the lobby) that they can impose their view and  even will  to an independent country to prevent  a simple french comedian to express himself about subjects and words they do not want people to listen to.

I would like to remind that Israel is occupying a country since more than 50 years with humiliating its  people . Israel was bombing Palestinians civilians several times , bombing hospitals , schools   UN food stock and they are on the verge to be sued for war crime (Last bombing in 2014 , 1400 civilians killed among which 550 children)  .They are stealing more and more land , expropriating Palestinian people to install Israeli settlers ….etc etc .These are FACTS.

This is partly what this french comedian speak about , even if we disagree partly with the content of its show ,he point out real subject and facts in a very good performance.

The Israeli ambassador , instead of distributing good or bad points  should learn that any country invaded and military occupied resists . Phuket heroine monument is here to remind it to us.

Last but not least, everything about the dark side of Israel administration  is clearly established in many UN reports as well as the last Amnesty International report here after .
