'UK, France recalling envoys will lead to int'l isolation'

Labor MK Binyamin Ben-Eliezer on Monday slammed Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's decision to build 3,000 new housing units in settlement blocs, as well as plans to build in E1.
"The world is losing its patience to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's irresponsible policies," Ben-Eliezer said.
Ben-Eliezer said that the decision to build new housing units in the West Bank and in east Jerusalem is "a badly timed decision" that "risks the loss of support from the United States and from European countries."
Ben-Elizer also responded to a report on Haaretz on Monday that France and the UK are considering to recall their ambassadors in protest of Israel's decision to build in the settlements.
"The world is telling Israel 'enough,' and the fact that friend-states like Britain and France are considering recalling their ambassadors is a long-reaching issue that can lead Israel to international isolation," Ben-Eliezer said.
