She is considered one of Israel’s most articulate representatives on the international stage, with her opinion articles regularly published in international publications and frequent interviews for television and radio programs around the world. A member of the Israeli Parliament from 2010-2013 on behalf of the Labor and Independence parties, media reports revealed she was considered a leading candidate for Israel’s Ambassador at the UN.
