Norwegian ambassador at the Knesset: We lowered prostitution 25% by making it illegal to pay for sex
The Subcommittee on Combating Trafficking in Women and Prostitution discussed the findings of the annual US State Department which placed Israel in the top category for battling human trafficking for the fifth year in a row. ”The US government recognized our continuing success in fighting human trafficking, but that does not mean we can stop fighting,” said Subcommittee Chairwoman MK Aliza Lavie. ”These women are victims of society, and society must give them back their dignity”

On the Public Agenda
The term ”Zionism” carries a negative connotation with liberal Jewish teenagers abroad, who are ashamed of their Jewish origin and are careful not to identify with Israel to avoid being labeled as ”unpatriotic”, the head of the World Zionist Organization`s Department for Diaspora Activities told the Diaspora Affairs Committee. Chairman MK Avraham Neguise urged the government to increase the budget for activities aimed strengthening Jewish and Zionist identity overseas
