Rabbi Dov Lior - the chief rabbi of Kiryat Arba - said that the recent diplomatic crises and events in Turkey and Egypt are directly related to the destruction of three homes in the illegal West Bank outpost of Migron.

Lior made the comments during a ceremony held in the settlement of Kiryat Arba, saying "We all saw how the destruction of buildings [in Migron] here caused the expulsion of diplomats in Turkey, and then in Egypt, and afterward in Jordan."

The Kiryat Arba rabbi slammed left-wing Israelis for seeking to give away "land belonging to Israel" to the Arabs, and said he "thanked God that the Holy One, Blessed be He, hardened the rears of the camel jockeys [Palestinians] and caused them to refuse to meet with government officials."
