Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu betrayed the settler movement by agreeing to evacuate the Ulpana outpost, MK Uri Ariel (National Union) stated Thursday.

Speaking to Israel Radio, Ariel said that the prime minister had lied to the public and "stabbed the settlers in the back."

Netanyahu on Wednesday authorized the construction of 851 West Bank Jewish homes, hours after he blocked passage of legislation designed to save unauthorized settler homes from demolition.
