فيما يلي ملخص من مقابلة وزيرة العدل الحالية Ayelet Shaked، يليها لاحقاً ملخصات عن المقابلات والمقالات الأخرى.

Ayelet Shaked is a relative newcomer to Israeli politics. Shaked, 40, served as Benjamin Netanyahu’s office manager before breaking with the prime minister and joining Naftali Bennett’s Jewish Home Party in 2012 and then winning election to the Knesset in 2013.

Following the 2015 election, Shaked was named Israel’s minister of Justice.

On the Terror Bill:

“…, the terror bill…, it gives the Shabak [Israel’s internal security service, also known as the Shin Bet] and the police new tools to fight terror. For example, it allows them, in specific circumstances, to prohibit a suspect from seeing a lawyer for 21 days. Things like that.”

On the NGO’s transparency bill:

“…, why? Because some countries have found a way to interfere in the internal affairs of Israel – not through diplomacy but by funding specific NGO’s that serve their ideology.”

On the Two States Solution:

“it’s just not realistic. All the countries around us are collapsing, and there is a huge battle in the Middle East between the Shia and the Sunnis, and there are terror organizations all over. Israel really is like a villa in the Jungle. And the situation in Judea and Samaria for the Palestinians – OK, it’s not perfect, but it’s OK. They are living their lives; they are selecting their leaders. The situation could be far worse that it is now.

Second, I believe in the historic right of the Jewish people to the land of Israel.

On the BDS [Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions] movement:

“…, and I expect the American administration to fight the BDS movement on university campuses.israel-palestine_map_19225_2469
