Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who also serves as foreign minister, has decided to appoint Likud hardliner, the minister for Science, Technology and Space Danny Danon, as Ambassador to the UN. ...
Besides from being a Knesset Member and a minister, he also serves as Chairman of World Likud for the past nine years and is responsible for the Likud’s foreign liaison and public diplomacy activity, as well as serving as chairman of the Likud Central Committee for the past few years.
The hawkish Likudnik is very popular among New York’s right-wing Jewish community, although his appointment could raise some eyebrows in the diplomatic world, considering his hawkish views on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
