Likud Minister Ayoub Kara (June 11 2017)

Likud Communications Minister Ayoub Kara resigned his post in the government on Monday, shortly after deciding to withdraw as a candidate for the post of Israeli Ambassador to Egypt.

Kara told reporters that he was resigning in order to devote more time to fighting a campaign of slander that he said was directed towards minimizing his influence within the party.


He added that he intends to continue his service to the State of Israel and to his Druze community, but did not specify how.

In his letter of resignation, Kara said he would “always fight for the security of Israel and for the security of my people, the tribe of Jethro, my brothers; the non-Jewish Druze who tied their fate to the Jewish people…

“I will ensure they have fitting representation and an honorable seat at the table of government and not just at the table of war. We will not be lumberjacks and water carriers.”
