Uri Ariel Calls on Defense Minister to Stop 'Punishing' Yitzhar


Housing and Construction Minister Uri Ariel (Jewish Home/Bayit Yehudi) sent a strongly worded letter to Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon Sunday protesting the IDF's takeover of the Od Yosef Chai yeshiva (Torah study academy) in Yitzhar.

Ariel clarified that while extremist activity in Yitzhar 'violates the spirit of Judaism,' so does taking over yeshiva - and it must stop.
