From the Times of Israel:
‘Lawrence Summers rejects post of Bank of Israel governor’ 
Acting governor Karnit Flug said to be back in the running; Netanyahu rebuffed by former US Treasury secretary, says Channel 2
It would be interesting to know whether Summers replied in words to the effect of, "Sorry, I`m an American."
Perhaps not. The man Netanyahu wanted Larry to replace, Stanley Fischer (Israel`s head central banker from 2005-2013), is also an American citizen. On the other hand, Fischer was born and raised in Rhodesia.
