New Canadian-born MK vows to fight for Israel unapologetically

Likud MK Sharren Haskel may have been born in Toronto but when it comes to fights in the Knesset and the international battle for Israel’s image, unlike the stereotype Canadian, she will be unwilling to say "I’m sorry."

Haskel, who made aliyah with her family when she was a baby, will be sworn in to the Knesset Wednesday afternoon in place of Danny Danon, who was appointed ambassador to the United Nations. She already officially became an MK on Thursday, when Danon’s appointment was approved, but Haskel had to wait to be sworn in until the Knesset convened in a special session during its extended summer recess.
