Fox News – Zeev Elkin has faced a wave of criticism since he was made the de facto chief of Israel’s Foreign Ministry two months ago: He isn’t prepared for compromise with the Palestinians. He doesn’t speak English well enough. He is a West Bank settler.

But Israel’s deputy foreign minister, who is the top official until a new foreign minister is named, makes no apologies for his ideology or background, and in fact thinks they are an advantage. Claiming to reflect the “real positions” of most Israelis, Elkin says the world should get used to dealing with Jewish settlers and right-wing Israeli politicians.
