John Kerry announces that he’s coming to save the day as Israel grapples with escalating jihadist violence. Israel says Kerry can keep himself and his terror-supporting views back in America.
Kish was born and raised in Tel Aviv, to a family of British-Jewish origin. His grandfather was Frederick Kisch, the highest-ranking Jew ever to serve in the British Army, and he held British citizenship until having to renounce it in 2015 as a condition of being allowed to take his Knesset seat. He holds an MBA from INSEAD. He was on the Likud Yisrael Beiteinu list for the 2013 Knesset elections, but failed to win a seat.
Prior to the 2015 elections he was placed 19th on the Likud list, a slot reserved for the Tel Aviv region. He was elected to the Knesset as Likud won 30 seats.
Kish is married with three children and lives in Ramat Gan.
