Meir Porush doesn’t so much walk into his Knesset office, rather he blows in like a strong wind. With just a half hour between a morning session on the Knesset floor and a United Torah Judaism (UTJ) faction meeting at 2 pm, the veteran Knesset Member appears annoyed that he’s got to use the break for a media interview.

Perhaps as a result, the look on Porush’s face isn’t so much anger, but rather utter, complete disdain. If body language is any indication, speaking to the media is a necessary, if distasteful, requirement of the job, and our conversation appears to be just one more rerun of the same interview he’s given a thousand times over his 17 years in the Knesset.
