Rivlin: Barak's decision to evacuate Hebron house politically motivated
By JPOST.COM STAFF
Defense Minister Ehud Barak's decision to evacuate Beit Hashalom in Hebron was politically motivated, MK Reuven Rivlin (Likud) asserted Thursday evening, several hours after hundreds of police stormed the disputed building and cleared it of its inhabitants.
"It's a shame that someone has an interest in setting Hebron alight," Rivlin said. "Barak chose a political evacuation when he could have employed wisdom and justice and waited for the legal situation to clear up."
