The cabinet of Benjamin Netanyahu has appointed Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan as the Zionist regime’s new Ambassador to the United Nations.

Iran PressMiddle East: Erdan has been given senior roles within the far-right Likud Party as well as the government solely because of his anti-peace and anti-Palestinian views.

His political career started as a Likud member when he was at university, where he organized and led anti-Oslo Accord protests. He was the head of the Union of Building Contractors in Israel and the Head of Likud’s youth wing. Erdan then worked as a legal consultant for the late Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and ongoing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

His hard-line views saw him oppose Sharon’s unilateral withdrawal from the Gaza Strip in 2005. When he entered the Knesset (parliament) in 2015, Netanyahu appointed him as Internal Security Minister.

This is while Israel’s Arabs — 20 percent of the population — accuse him of ignoring the security of the Arab neighborhoods.
