MK Dov Henin (Hadash) has blasted Defense Minister Ehud Barak's decision to approve 500 new housing units in West Bank settlements. In a statement released Sunday night, Henin said Barak had turned into the "contractor of the right-wing," and that the plan joined a "wave of settlement construction" approved by the defense minister. The Hadash MK warned that "Barak and Netanyahu won't succeed in tricking the world," and called on Israel's peace camp to "wake up from its slumber and act to topple the Netanyahu-Barak-Lieberman government that is thwarting all diplomatic progress and pushing Israel into an all-out conflict with the Palestinians, Arab states and the entire world."
