Kadima on Monday spoke out against the comments make by ministers on a tour of West Bank outposts. On Monday morning's tour, Interior Minister Eli Yishai said the outposts were legal, while Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya'alon said that Israel should consider rebuilding the settlement of Homesh, which was evacuated during the 2005 disengagement. In a statement, Kadima said that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu "is ridiculing world public opinion, and Israel is again likely to pay the price." The party called Netanyahu's policies "dangerous" for Israel, and said they were likely to harm the country's vital interests, including retaining the larger settlement blocs. "The Israeli public deserves an answer on which Netanyahu to believe, the one who talks about two states for two peoples, or the one who sends his senior ministers to pledge allegiance to all the illegal outposts, and takes steps which will thwart any possible advantage of a two-state solution," continued the statement.
