Landau, Uzi

(1943- )
   Born in Haifa. Landau earned a Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He served in the Knesset from 1984 to 2006 on behalf of the Likud list. He served as minister of internal security in Israel's 29th government and as minister in the prime minister's office in the 30th government until October 2004. Landau was not placed high enough on the Likud Party list for the 2006 election to win a seat in the 17th Knesset. Though outside of electoral politics, he remained a forceful critic of territorial concessions to the Palestinians that he believed diminished Israel's security.
