Education Minister and Bayit Yehudi Chairman Naftali Bennett responded to the demolition of houses in Beit El on Wednesday.
In his statement, he applauded the government for approving construction on 300 housing units in Beit El and hundreds more in Jerusalem.
"The job of the High Court is to judge, the job of the government is to build. This is the Zionist way. This is how we built our country," he said.
Still, he urged citizens of Beit El "not to raise their hands towards violence under any circumstances," and stressed that it was important to build up the land of Israel "but only in accordance with the law."
