"To boycott Israel because of its policies and because Israel wants to defend itself is not only anti-Zionist... it's 21st century anti-Semitism," MK Ayelet Shaked tells Haaretz, adding that she believes that boycotting Israel "should be illegal."

In an interview for "The Candidates," Haaretz's series of conversations with Knesset hopefuls, the Habayit Hayehudi MK tells Aimee Amiga about her party's plan to annex Area C of the West Bank, saying Israel should grant full civil rights to Palestinians living there, and that Palestinians in Areas A and B "should keep having autonomy like they have today" and that "sometime in the future [the areas] could be part of a confederation with Jordan."

Shaked says she is against the establishment of a Palestinian state and thinks the one-state solution would be "harmful both for the Israelis and the Palestinians."

Before joining politics, Shaked worked in high-tech. She tells Amiga what she misses most about working in the private sector: "a decent salary" and having time to herself. As for what she values most in life, the MK said, "My family and my country."
