There is no such organization as "hill-top youth", and any attempt to define an amorphous group as a terrorist organization will result in repeated attacks, MK Uri Ariel said Wednesday.

Ariel's comments came in reaction to a suggestion put forward by ministers that violent right-wing groups should be declared as terrorist organizations. This recommendation emerged from a meeting held Wednesday morning by Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch and Justice Minister Yaakov Neeman.

"Instead of looking for all kinds of titles that are unconnected to reality, the Public Security Minister would do better to strengthen law enforcement, to find the guilty, and to bring them to justice as fast as possible," said Ariel.
