The administration of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sacked Israel’s antisemitic envoy on Sunday, citing her criticism of the organization’s proposed judicial reform as a potential factor.
An anti-Semitism volunteer position was given to pro-Israel activist and actress Noa Tishby last year by Israel’s previous government.
Tishby claimed on Twitter that she could not determine whether her reservations about this administration’s “court reform policy” impacted their choice.
Tishby wrote a post last month criticizing the government’s proposed legislation and calling it an attempted “revolution” on the Hebrew-language news website Ynet.
The Israeli Foreign Ministry released a statement wishing Tishby well but failed to comment further on why she was fired.
Last Monday, Netanyahu declared that he would put the nation’s planned judicial reform on hold.
The nation is divided over the government’s plan to defund the Supreme Court, which has sparked weekly large-scale demonstrations.
Assaf Zamir, an Israeli official appointed by the previous administration as Israel’s consul general in New York, resigned last week in displeasure.
