Israel’s newest MK – Canadian-born, Aussie-educated woman who backs legalizing pot

With Danny Danon set to depart for New York to represent Israel as the next ambassador to the United Nations, the public will soon be introduced to a fresh face from the Likud list that will ascend to the parliament – Sharren Haskel.

Born in Canada, Haskel, who becomes a parliamentarian by virtue of her being No. 31 on the Likud list, served in the Border Police during her military service. Just 31 years of age, Haskel is a veterinarian by trade as well as a former debate champion.

Haskel was on a presumably nerve-wracking wait in recent weeks in anticipation of her entry to the Knesset as lawmakers discussed the so-called "Norwegian Law."
