At a handover ceremony alongside his predecessor Chili Tropper, new Culture and Sports Minister Miki Zohar (Likud) vows not to provide state funding for artworks that “defame the State of Israel in the country and around the world.”

Zohar adds: “We will make sure to withdraw funding that promotes our enemies’ narrative. Terrorists won’t be presented as heroes using Israeli funding, and soldiers won’t be presented as murderers.”
