Daniel on the way to the lion’s den

When Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called Science, Technology and Space Minister Danny Danon last Friday to tell him that he had chosen him to be the next ambassador to the United Nations, Danon was on a tour of Gush Etzion with his family.

Danon received the call as he descended from the enormous Herodion fortress, which stands out amid the hills of Judea, south of Jerusalem. Netanyahu gave him the good news, and the newly appointed ambassador continued on his tour of the region that is not controversial in Israel but is seen in his new place of work as an obstacle to peace in the Middle East.

“I am going to the lion’s den,” Danon told confidants afterward, recalling the story of his biblical namesake.
