MK Miki Zohar took up his position as Minister of Culture and Sports this morning (Monday) after replacing outgoing Minister Hili Troper. At the exchange ceremony held at the Ministry of Culture and Sports in Jerusalem, Troper congratulated him, summed up our two and a half year tenure, thanked his staff and gave some advice to the new minister: We translated a worldview into actions.

We gave an equal place to everyone, we preserved freedom of creation and culture and realized that any political intervention results in less creation.

The firm's budget grew dramatically thanks to our honest behavior.

We released countless programs, because we didn't shout or insult anyone."

"End episode," said another troper.

"There is something sad in every breakup. The minister has a lot of power, and from this position of power you can multiply good and you can do bad. You can corrupt with power and you can correct with it. It is in our hands and there is nothing to blame it on others like legal advisors. It is better that everyone be humble. It is not allowed to abuse power. I'm finishing two and a half years in which we were able to translate a worldview into actions. To give everyone an equal and honorable place, to be careful about freedom of creation and culture. And a lot of investment in infrastructure. And the most important thing is to maintain a respectful and decent way, one that knows how to admit mistakes and apologize. There is no culture of lies and hatred It has a future. The cultural budget has grown. It must be admitted that almost always the biggest fights arise from political needs."

A trooper turned to Zohar and said: "Don't rush to fight even when they invite you to a fight. You don't have to answer every questionable invitation. There were years of fights and fights, it's not worth repeating them."

About a week ago, Eliav Zohar, the winner of the ninth season of "The Next Star" and the son of the incoming Minister of Culture, wrote on Twitter that "God forbid we reach a situation where a person in Israel will be discriminated against on the basis of his faith or sexual orientation."

Eliav added and turned to his father: "Father, we trust you."

The 22-year-old singer and musician wrote the words after the storm that erupted from the racist statements of Knesset members from religious Zionism, a member of the incoming coalition.

"I don't like to talk about politics but there is something that sits on my heart that is important for me to say," Eliav wrote.

"God forbid that we reach a situation where a person in Israel will be discriminated against on the basis of his faith or sexual orientation. I am sure that the new government will also protect the freedom of all of us. Father, we trust you. 'To be a free people in our country'."

MK Miki Zohar wrote in response to his son: "Eliav, my dear son, you know me well enough to know that we will protect the freedom of all Israeli citizens."
