Eldad Criticizes PM on Ministerial Settlement Committee

Member of Knesset Aryeh Eldad (National Union) said, Thursday, that the establishment of a ministerial committee on Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria is "part of the payment" to right-wing ministers who voted recently against a law intended to protect families in the Ulpana neighborhood of the Binyamin-region Jewish community of Beit El from being uprooted under a Supreme Court order. Eldad said, "Those who pass the headline stage and come to the powers of the committee understand that [Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu is again blowing sand in the eyes of those who are faithful to the land of Israel."

Referring to Ehud Barak, Eldad continued, "The powers of the defense minister, who is an enemy of the settlement enterprise, were not curtailed and only he can approve construction or planning in Judea and Samaria (Shomron). "
