“Under the leadership of PM @netanyahu, @IsraelinUN continues to achieve unprecedented accomplishments in the diplomatic arena,” tweeted Danon. “During this challenging period, I will continue advancing Israel’s position at the UN, & will not participate in the upcoming Knesset elections.”

Positions include, but aren’t limited to, blocking attempts by the Palestinians for full state membership at the United Nations, in addition to the constant anti-Israel bias in the world body.
