Likud MK Danny Danon on Monday harshly criticized the decision to demolish three homes in the West Bank outpost of Migron, saying the move continued Ehud Barak's "embarrassing reign as defense minister."

"A Likud government should be building homes in Judea and Samaria, not destroying them," Danon said in a statement.

Danon added: "At a time when Israel should stand strong in the face of Palestinian attempts to circumvent direct negotiations with unilateral action, we are instead sending a message of weakness.  Barak's actions highlight our readiness to capitulate and treat our own citizens as common criminals, while ignoring flagrant violations of signed agreements by the Palestinians throughout Judea and Samaria."

He stated that thousands of Likud activists would be visiting "the pioneers of Migron" during the upcoming holidays.
