Labor MK Ophir Paz-Pines on Monday blasted comments made by ministers on a tour of West Bank outposts. On Monday morning's tour, Interior Minister Eli Yishai said the outposts were legal, while Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya'alon said that Israel should consider rebuilding the settlement of Homesh, which was evacuated during the 2005 disengagement. "The ministers' remarks are irresponsible, and put us on a collision course with the US," said Paz-Pines. "Meanwhile, Netanyahu is hiding and refusing to clarify where he stands." The Labor MK also blasted his party leader Ehud Barak. "Barak is silent, maybe those are also his opinions," he said. "Even the Labor party must set itself a red line. I once again call on the party to leave this right-wing government."
