Dani Dayan is an Israeli-Argentine entrepreneur and Consul General of Israel in New York since August 2016.[1] Dayan is an advocate for the establishment and maintenance of Israeli settlements in the West Bank, or Judea and Samaria. He served as the Chairman of the Yesha Council from 2007 to 2013.[2][3] In 2013, he resigned as Chairman of the Yesha Council to endorse Benjamin Netanyahu for Prime Minister.[3] Dayan was subsequently appointed as Chief Foreign Envoy [4] of the Yesha Council, as the only official representative of the Israeli settlement movement to the international community.[3] After a diplomatic stand-off over its assignment of former settler leader Dayan as ambassador to Brazil without consulting the government of Brasilia, Israel backed off and in March 2016 assigned Dayan as Consul General of Israel in New York.[5]
