The pro-settler Right was unanimous in roundly condemning Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon on Tuesday morning just hours after dozens of youths were forcibly evicted from an illegally built house in the West Bank settlement of Beit El.

Ze'ev Elkin, who holds the title of Jerusalem affairs minister, released a statement on Tuesday "condemning the nighttime evacuation of Beit El settlers."

"I call on the defense minister to devote efforts not in removing settlers but in completing the authorization process of the buildings and advancing plans for the new neighborhood," Elkin said.

"As we mark a decade since the painful and disastrous expulsion of settlers from Gush Katif and northern Samaria, the time has come to build, not to destroy," he said.
