The Foreign Ministry is reportedly weighing cutting ties with its antisemitism envoy, Noa Tishby, after she spoke out repeatedly against the government’s planned judicial overhaul.

According to Ynet, the ministry is considering firing Tishby from the position, which was created for her by Yair Lapid when he was foreign minister last year.

The unpaid position was the first of its kind and did not require cabinet approval.
