Kadima parliamentarian: Likud approves of settler violence

MK Yohanan Plesner (Kadima) on Thursday slammed the Likud for remarks made earlier by two senior members of the party alleging that the decision to evacuate the house in Hebron was "politically motivated." "[MK Reuven] Rivlin and [Moshe] Ya'alon clearly express the Likud's real viewpoints and are falling into line with the Faiglin camp ahead of the primaries in their party," Plesner said. "The Likud primaries are giving a seal of approval to violence and the use of force against security personnel."
