Eldad and Ben-Ari Welcome Barak Resignation


The Otzma Leyisrael party, headed by Knesset members Aryeh Eldad and Michael Ben-Ari, were quick to welcome Defense Minister Ehud Barak's announcement, Monday morning, that he was leaving his position and politics after the formation of the next government in January.

The party said, in a statement, "Now [Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu and [Foreign Minister Avigdor] Lieberman can approve all the construction in Judea and Samaria (Shomron) that Barak stuck on his table or it will be proven that Barak was just a fig leaf and the prime minister is the one responsible for harassing the settlers."
