Meretz leader Zehava Gal-on on Saturday slammed Labor leader Shelly Yachimovich for her "feeble reaction" to a new settlement expansion plan.

Speaking at a weekly cultural event in Ramat Hasharon, Meretz said that Yachivich's hesitant response is a continuation of the Labor party's shift to the right, and a direct continuation of the party's "build and cry" policy, which she said it has implemented through the ages.

"The settlements must be evacuated, not built up," she said. "There is no greater obstacle to an agreement than the settlements, and there is no heavier economic millstone that burdens the middle class and weaker sectors of society in Israel than the occupation."
