Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon responded on Friday to the UN Human Rights Council's decision to set up a committee to examine Jewish construction in Judea and Samaria, and said that "once again the Human Rights Council has proven that it is essentially a rubber stamp of the Palestinians and it has again been proven that the Palestinians do not seek an historical reconciliation or peace, but confrontation and struggle."
Ayalon added, "This is a continuation of the political incitement campaign that the Palestinians have been holding against us in recent months. As far as Israel is concerned, the UN committee has no effect - political nor moral - and therefore we will not allow them to work here."
