The left wing Peace Now organization, criticized Interim Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Thursday in the wake of his decision to build a temporary section of the Jerusalem Envelope security fence without obtaining the "required permission." Peace Now director Yariv Oppenheimer called the decision "an attempt to by pass the High Court." Another spokesman for the left wing organization said that the decision was made at the expense of residents of Palestinian villages. Olmert rejected the criticism, claiming that the temporary fence was legal. "Instead of praising the solution which has prevented terror attacks they have found reasons to complain," said a prime minister spokesman.
