MK Ariel on Evacuations: Why Deal with Hypotheticals?

Chairman of the State Control Committee, MK Uri Ariel (Jewish Home), participated in a campaign gathering Saturday evening in Efrat and was asked about his party's reaction to the possible evacuations of Amona and Givat Assaf. 

"Why should they evacuate Amona? Why deal with hypothetical questions?" Ariel said. "I believe Amona will not be evacuated for reasons I will not go into right now. We are dealing with this issue all the time and the same is true of Givat Asaf."

Ariel added, "It could be that Netanyahu will do things that we do not accept and we will have to take a look at the options."
