Oren Hazan defies Netanyahu, takes selfie with Trump

Dozens of ministers, deputy ministers, religious leaders, the heads of the army, police and Mossad — all managed to shake Trump’s hand in quiet dignity.

A few, such as Education Minister Naftali Bennett and Environmental Protection Minister Ze’ev Elkin, asked him to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

But only Likud’s MK Oren Hazan, to Netanyahu’s horror — and despite the prime minister attempting to lower Hazan’s arm and prevent it — pulled out his cellphone and took a selfie with the US president.

It may be worth noting that Hazan was not even supposed to be in the front row of dignitaries.
