Liberman Dumps Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon from Knesset List

Avigdor Liberman’s campaign to unload the “stars” of his party, Israel Beiteinu, continues full blast into Tuesday, the day of submitting all the lists of nominees to the Knesset, Israel’s Channel 2 News reported.

The list of Liberman’s party is shared this election with Netanyahu’s Likud.

After the untimely “retirement” of Tourism Minister Stas Misezhnikov (accused of drunkenness, but also one of the most effective Tourism ministers Israel has ever had), and MK Anastasia Michaeli (spilled a glass of water on an Arab MK), Israel Beiteinu’s powerful chairman on Tuesday dropped his own deputy at the Foreign Ministry, the talented and very charismatic Danny Ayalon.

The Deputy Foreign Minister, picked for seventh place on the party list in the previous Knesset, will be remembered, among other things, for the embarrassing incident with the Turkish ambassador, whom Ayalon forced to sit in front of the cameras on a humiliatingly low chair. It did not help Israel’s already toxic relationship with Turkey. But U.S. Jews will remember Ayalon’s brilliant stint as co-chairman of the North American aliyah organization Nefesh B’Nefesh.

On the other hand, Liberman is also intending to place the MK Faina Kirschenbaum in seventh place on the list, a 3-spot upgrade from her tenth place in the 2009 Knesset elections.

  1. Liberman must be crazy Ayalon is ferry populair in de US and Europe under the pro-Israel groups.

  2. We like Danny Ayalon! Why remove one of youre best men?

  3. Andee Goldman says:

    Lieberman, I have lost respect for you and your party. Danny Ayalon was a real asset… knowledge of working and bringing people to Israel. You are the one who should leave the Party!

  4. Anonymous says:

    Danny Ayalon made a number of short videos that were some of the best hasbara Israel has offered as far back as I can remember.

  5. Leah Israel says:

    Keep the muslim bastards , and Kick the Jew out , that sure makes a lot sense!

  6. Fay Maricelli says:

    Now, it's beginning to sound a lot like our federal government…

  7. Rob Muchnick says:

    Ayalon voted in favor of the Expulsion. And he represented Sharon in the US at the same time saying how great the Expulsion was going to be.

  8. Rubin Katz says:

    Maybe its because Danny Ayalon doesn't speak Russian! He now has the opportunity to form his own party, like all self-respecting Israeli politicians. That's what democracy with proportional representation is all about..

  9. Nathan Warszawski says:

    . In the Name of democracy Lieberman has to quit.

  10. Hank Becker says:

    Yep , then he got what he deserved.
